I agree with dragonfly, my daughter had pinworms some years ago. Her butt was so itchy especially at night, so when I called the ped. he said "take a look at her butt, and you will see them moving", and I did!!! They look like white strings, and they move. So everybody in the family had to take medication for that, and we had to be very careful with cleaning the toilet, changing bed linens etc. If your husband is not so grossed out, have him check on it.
It's nothing serious, but it's very annoying.
I suffer from this too. My plan of attack is baby wipes. They are more gentle than t.p., antibacterial and give a good, good clean. I also use Penaten (also found in the baby aisle), it's a barrier cream, and really soothing. When things go from itchy to painful I use Anusol.
