What is the cause for itchy anus after finding long brown worms in the toilet?

I have found very thin, long, brown worm-like things once in my bathtub and again in my toilet. If I look closely there is the long strand and then small fiber like hairs on the worm. It is a medium to dark brown color and I found it in the toilet after a tough bm. My anus now itches and I am passing a lot of gas. I am afraid this is an intestinal worm but cannot find pictures like what I described online

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having round worm or tap worm.
While taking bath it might have come out.
due to passing worms you get itching in anal region.
Go for one course of anti-worm treatment like Albendazole.
Keep your nails clean and well cut.
Ok and take care.
