Threadworm (also known as pinworm) is the most common human worm infestation that occurs in Australia. It can infest even the “cleanest” people, affecting 1 in 2 kids and 1 in 3 adults! Despite its unsavoury reputation, threadworms are relatively harmless. When examined closely, these worms look like a short piece of white thread, (thus explaining their name), and measure between 2 and 13 millimetres in length.
