Vaginal worm infection. Tried herbal remedies for intestinal worms. Can infection travel from anus to vagina?

Hi, I think I may have a vaginal pinworm infection. I have been taking herbal remedies to rid myself of intestinal worms . I have been riding my body of unbelieveable things. Mt question is that the pinworms affected both my anus and vagina for a few days, now my vagina seems to be the only area affected. Is this possible?

Hi,
Having pin worm or any other parasite infection is very common among ladies as anal opening and vagina are very near each other so crawling of worms are common.
During cleaning of anus while defecation can pass through vagina again can cause spreading of infection.
Go for oral anti-helminth tablet course like Albendazole for worms.
Wash your local part from front to backward after defecation.
Keep your nails clean and well cut.
Ok and take care.
