Noticed white specks in baby stool. Could it be pinworms?

My child is three, for the past day or so, he has been having stools with tiny white spec a on them. There are tons, and they look very much like tiny white seeds. They dont move, so I m sure they are not tiny worms . He hasn t been acting any different than he usually does. I m stumped at what this could be, pinworms? He hasnt shown any signs, nor have I seen any.

Hello dear...I have gone through your post in which you have mentioned about your child passing stools with tiny white specs on them.
Presence of white specs in stool may be due to undigested food (like rice or seeds) or parasite eggs.
So...have a look at his dietary habit & if it still persists, it will be better to get his stool test done.
I wish you & your son a good health.
Thanks and take care.
