I'm scared because I've notice a couple of months ago that there's something small and a bit fat that is white/yellow in my poop. These things however never moves. I'm sorry. I know it's gross and all, but the only reason I started looking was because sometimes my anus itches. I didn't care at first since I have a dry skin and I thought that's the problem. Is it pinworms? I don't really have any of the other symptoms of it. Do I have pinworms? I'm 18.

Hello and thank you for posting your health query on E health Forum.

From the history provided here, presence of anal pruritus and suspicion of worms in stools would definitely need medical attention.

You might consider getting yourself examined, as well as getting a stool examination done for ova and parasites. This will give a definitive diagnosis.

In addition, presence of specific clinical features and signs can guide your doctor to initiate interventions for deworming.

I hope you find my suggestion helpful.
