Hi there and welcome.  Thread worms can not be in the vagina.  They are found in the intestinal tract.  So, it's not thread worms.  

Perhaps she needs to see a doctor to examine her and give advice.  That would be my recommendation.  She could have an overgrowth of yeast in which either a topical, OTC product can be used or a systemic pill prescribed by her doctor.  But I would think she should be seen at this point.  good luck
