Anal itch, symptoms of pinworms, black specs on toilet paper. What could this be?

hi, i ve had an anal itch for a few months now along with a yeast infection . thought they were from the same thing but a fews ago I got the all clear from my obgyn but the anal itch was getting worse. After looking into it online I realized I had the tell tale symptoms of pinworms/threadworms: itching in the middle of the night, feeling of something wiggling around etc. just took a de-worm pill (scheduled to take another in two weeks) but started researching again as I ve noticed little black specs on the toilet paper. could this be another type of worm or parasite?

It seems that you might be mixed worm infection.
Nothing to worry, there is broad spectrum de-worm tablet acting on mixed worm infection.
Keep your nails well cut and clean,
Wash your hands properly after touching dust, ground or gardening.
Give anti-worm treatment to your other family members as well.
Ok and take care.
