You need to ask a doctor or a lab to get a stool collection kit. Then you should pick that worm when it appears next time (it may be hidden within the stool). Worms are treated by special antibiotics, but you won't get them without prescription. Doctors are used to hear and see more you can imagine...If I can "dissapoint" you a little: having worms is not a big news.
