She had brought her toddler to the emergency room because she was awakening in the night and scratching her bottom and complaining of rectal itch. Could it be sexual abuse, she asked? No, I reassured her, just pinworms. They are also known as threadworm, or enterobius vermicularis. They are ubiquitous in our community and anyone can catch them.
Pinworms (threadworms): Symptoms, causes, and treatments
The most common symptom of infection is anal itching, particularly at night, as worms migrate to the host's anal area to lay their eggs. Pinworm infection is the most common type of intestinal worm infection in the United States and one of the most common worldwide. While the infected person sleeps, female pinworms lay thousands of eggs in the folds of skin surrounding the anus. Most people infected with pinworms have no symptoms, but some people experience anal itching and restless sleep. Pinworm infection occurs most often in school-age children, and the microscopic eggs are easily spread from child to child.
Medically Reviewed by Robert Jasmer, MD Pinworms are highly contagious and cause itchiness around the anus and vagina. The term "pinworm" refers to Enterobius vermicularis, a tiny, threadlike, white roundworm formally known as a nematode that infects the intestines of people. Pinworm infections are typically called enterobiasis, but are also sometimes known as oxyuriasis or threadworm. Among high risk groups — children under age 18, institutionalized people, and those who take care of infected people — the prevalence of pinworm infection can reach 50 percent.
If they are touched, they will be transferred to the hands. If the hands then touch the person's mouth, there is a serious risk of swallowing the eggs and becoming infected. Breathing in the eggs The microscopic eggs may become airborne and then be breathed in and swallowed. This can happen when shaking towels or bed sheets, for example.

We don’t know much about any history on the subject. We can do a little but we find quickly in our own societies it is more influenced by social position, definition of women’s duties and privileges. Educational levels, so even our best record and understanding tells us little. So trying to make projections on to other cultures and religions in other cultural circumstances says more about the commentator than the ones commented upon. History using more random surviving accounts does allow historians to comment on particular time and place and incident but unlike other social sciences not try to make broader projections.
