Do thread worms or tapeworms cause spots on skin?

Do threadworms or pinworms cause spots on the skin, especially face and neck? Does the drug vermox work on people with low stomach acid? Does it not work for some people with health problems and if so, which ones? Is it better for the body to use another medication to get rid of pinworms/threadworms? Does the body expel the worms once dead or do their corpses remain in the intestines?

Welcome to HCM,
Worm infestation can cause anemia which can cause discoloration on cheeks,skin of neck.
Now a days instead Albendazole tablet is used instead of Mebendazole ( Vermox )
It will few days to expel dead worms.
Take branded Iron capsules if you got discoloration on face and neck for about a month or so.
Ok and bye.
