Symptoms of pinworm infection may include:

  • Itching of the anal or vaginal area
  • Insomnia, irritability and restlessness

Some people with pinworms have no symptoms.

Consult your doctor if you have mild abdominal pain along with insomnia or irritability, or if you're experiencing consistent or severe anal or vaginal itching.
