What is the difference between a drain worm and a pin worm?

So I've been having some problems of first thinking I had pin worms because I would see these small worms in my tub and I thought it was because I might've had pin worms. Now I think it might be drain worms but at the same time I don't know. Can someone please explain to me further more about this and give me suggestions on what I should do?! I was really terrified that I kept thinking I had pin worms but now I'm so unsure about everything.

Please please please help me. I'm in desperate need of help because I've been so paranoid lately.

    Pin worms live in your rectum and make your butt itch like crazy. These are most common in very young children and I believe that there are some OTC products will get rid of them completely. Drain worms are . . . I'm not sure. Maybe fly larvae eating gunk caught in the drain?

    If you haven't found any worms on your butt or seen them in the toilet, you don't have any.

    This is dog question and answers you need to google both of the above.

    Animals do not harbor pinworms - humans are the only natural host for this parasite.
