ANSWER #2 of 5

I've never heard of pinworms being in your vagina. They are normally in your anus.

You would need medication from the doctor to get rid of them.

They do not spread down your legs

They only come out at night

And I'm not sure about the itching, but I think that you really need to go to the doctor as soon as possible.

How to wash your vagina?

ANSWER #3 of 5

1) Yes. They can move from your anus to your vagina if left. You are the one that trasmits the eggs so all you have to do is itch your bum then thouch your vagina ,probabaly without knowing ,and you have moved the eggs and they will then hatch there.

2) Depends which route you go down doctors or pharmacy. It will probably be one tablet and they will start to clear up. Although re-infestation easily happens. Once you itch you will probably touch a surface or a part of your house. The eggs are then trasmitted to that surface and can hatch. You touch the surface, put your finger in your mouth and then you start right from the begginging again. YOu have to keep up good hygience habits and clean regularly. Also clean your home to gt rid of any eggs. Don't itch if possible.

3) no they dont spread down your legs

4)yes

5)Like I said it can lead to re-infestation so really its best to not itch if possible.

Why does my vagina have extra skin?

ANSWER #5 of 5

You don't need to touch them to spread them. They are quite common in the vagina as they are looking for a "safe" place to lay the eggs when they come out at night. especially if you start cleaning the area around your bum all the time to help get rid of them. Since the medicine to kill them works through the digestive tract it does not kill the ones in your vagina. However, as they hatch out of your vagina, they will crawl to your anus and will live during the day inside your digestive track to get food. Therefore, you are not rid of them from the medication. I have found no doctor who can get rid of them once they are in your vagina too.
