These could well be pinworms.
Pinworms have a high rate of re-infection because of the high rate of auto-infection (one re-infecting his/herself).
There should extreme personal hygiene of the hands and all the surroundings and the clothes.
This is a website that would give some info about pinworms.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
