Brief Answer:
possible worm infestation

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Very likely they are egg or larvae of the worms living in intestines.

Take a course of deworming therapy (you may need a prescription from your local physician).
Tab Bandy plus containing Albendazole 400mg with Ivermectin 8mg at night. Chew the tablet every night for 3 days.

Thanks, and you would be fine soon.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
