The inside of my anus hurts alot every night and only at night time. During the day I feel normal. And when I have to go to the bathroom to stool I see these little worms coming out of my anus. This problem happens every other month and it lasts for about a week. I am 16 years old.

Welcome to e health forum.

It seems that you have a intestinal parasitic worm infestation, probably pinworms.

You might consult with your doctor for a examination and if needed a stool examination.

He will also prescribe you proper anti-helminthic medications , to treat the underlying condition.

I hope this helps.
