Kristen Bell is opening up about some intimate details of a recent health spat with “anal worms.”
The actress, and mom of two, appeared on Sunday’s episode of “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” and relived the horrors she and daughter Delta, 3, endured.
“I did have anal worms two weeks ago — I swear to God,” Bell, 37, told McHale, 46. “They’re called pinworms. My kids had them.”
“It was very itchy,” she said. “I’m not here to talk about pinworms, but I will. 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.”
Delta’s school started the outbreak, but thankfully, it didn’t pass to brother Lincoln, 4, or dad Dax Shepard. Only to little Delta and Bell.
“Of course I immediately Googled it, and it’s like so, so contagious,” she continued.
“The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale” airs a new episode every Sunday only on Netflix.
