Most of these bugs infect your intestines. But the one that causes trichinosis also affects your muscles.
Common roundworm diseases and their symptoms include:
• Ascariasis -- belly pain
• Hookworm -- blood loss
• Pinworm -- anal itching
• Trichinosis -- pain, fever, face swelling, pink eye, rash
• Whipworm -- mucus, water and blood in stool, rectal prolapse (when part or all of the rectum slides out of place)
Your doctor may prescribe drugs to treat these infections.
