“I did have anal worms, they’re called pinworms”, the Frozen star explained. When asked if it was painful, she said, “No, but it was very itchy”.

“I’m not here to talk about pinworms, but I will,” she said. “Fifty percent of people over 15 don’t experience symptoms, which is the itch. Your kids get them because they put their hands in their mouth and they lay eggs.”

Apparently her child had contracted the nematode and mom later got it and the whole family has to take the “chalky nonsense”.
