Hi there. I recently noticed an odd wiggling and itching sensation in my anal area and worried I might have some sort of worm. I ordered Reeses Pinworm about 24 hours ago. My past two bowel movements have produced stool that seem thready and have oddly shaped loopy patterns that seem to be some sort of foreign object. I'm not sure if I'm just worrying and seeing things in othersise normal stool - or in this case slightly abnormal stool due to Reese's - or if there is legitimately something there.
I've posted an anonymous photo at the following link. If you zoom in, you can see the thready stuff I'm worried about. Is this a possible sign of a parasite, or just normal clumping from the stool breaking apart. Wondering if I need professional follow up. Thanks for help!
