I think I got worms in my stomach. Can you advise me what to do ?

Hi, I know this sound weird but I am only 13, but today when I go to the the toliet, on my there was a wiggly thing waving around, it wiggled for about 30 seconds and stopped moving, but I can tell it was alive, so i searched for worms in intestines and found that this was a pinworm , since it was tiny not like the others, but every since today, I am really scared because I have a rash on my chin and i eat alot, also I sneese every morning and stops in the afternoon ( don’t know why ). So I am guessing its worms in my intestines, and saw all these videos on what to eat to stay healthy, but what can i do to remove the worms, or should I just ask my mum to go to a doctor with me. Also I am alot smaller than the other year 13s (I wear 10-11 year old clothes and they are big). OMG and i saw this video on youtube that many people die every year from worms, I don’t wanna die this young. This is so scary, can you advise me what to do cause I dont know how i am going to tell my mum. But one time i accidently swallowed bad cheese (yuck) and I had stomach ache for like 2 days, but after that im fine, its the thing that was wiggling in my poop thats what im worried about, how would I know if I have more of those in my intestines, or if that was the only one. And one more thing, Im not sure I wet my bed, but every time i wake up my legs are all sticky(not that kind of sticky), it could be sweat, but my bed isnt wet when I wake up so I don’t know if i have that.

Pin Worms are very common.The symptoms are annoying but they donot cause serious health problems and arenot dangerous.You should not be afraid.Moreoever routine prescription are very effective.
Pinworms are most active at night,come out of anus to lay eggs,cause itching there.
Again,as I told it is treatable ,most common,donot worry.
Go to Doctor.
Wish u good health.
