Dear Patient:  The different type of worms found in stool are tapeworms, pinworms, and roundworms. Treatment is with mebendazole, albendazole or piperazine which are available over the counter from pharmacies. Though one treatment is usually enough, sometimes multiple doses are required to get rid of the worms completely.
