Dear Debnrandy, someone else a few weeks back asked about the same symptoms and if you live or have visited any south American countries or Mexico, these symptoms maybe caused by an insect known as a BotFly. They worms you see are the larva, and if I am not mistaken, those have to be treated a few times. Look botfly up, you can start with Wikipedia.org and out it in the search bar. Usually it is seen in south American countries and also Mexico, but it also could be another type of insect, that has laid its eggs under your skin, and produce larva when they a maturing. It can be cured, if you have access to an infectious disease dr, they will be able to help with this. I found the info in Wikipedia quite useful in explaining how the person came in contact with the fly, the life cycle of the fly and how to treat it.
If you do NOT have an infectious disease dr, look for the closest medical college with a hospital attached to their program, they should be able to help you, even a veterinarian may be able to find a dr to treat you in your area, he won't be able to treat you himself, but may be able to find a dr who can who is close to you. If all else fails, call the closest ERs of the hospitals close to you, explain that you have a botfly infestation in your skin and ask if they have anyone who can treat it. It is treatable. Keeping you in my prayers. Please update us when you can. patti
I don't think it comes in injectable for humans. It comes in a pill. The name is Stromectal. You mean thru 5 docs no one treated you for parasites? Where do you live?
I too have sores that won’t heal. They started a year ago. Just recently it’s gotten out I’d control. I’ve treatex myself with Reese’s pinworm medicine with no results. However I did pass some transparent like worms. When I pick the scabs off the sores n get every bit of the scab and surrounding tissue and worm like things out it will heal very quickly. I e been to the Er twice and a dermatologist and they all want to give me something for itching. Because they think I’m scratching these sores into existence. I’m not. I explain to them that these sores burn even when water runs on them. Until I pick the crap away then no more burn n heals. I’m so exhausted from washing my sheets n blankets every day and vacuuming five to ten times a day and bleaching my bathroom and my floors and my shower and the laundry room. I Lysol every thing. If I don’t do these things the larvae will attack me and bite me trying to get into my skin.
I’ve purchased a small microscope and looked at the things I’ve pulled out my skin and looked at my counters and they are transparent worm like organisms that have a blue or red vein like them through them. Also they will leave trails in my skin with dots that are hard. I just feel so defeated and helpless and honestly don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this.
I buy fenbendazole and ivermectin horse paste 1.87% at tractor supply. They both work for a while but infection comes back so I have to take monthly. Hopefully I will find a doctor that can write me a real script. I have strongyloides, you sound like you may have this as well. Lots of same symptoms and very hard to get a positive diagnosis, let alone a doctor that will even look Into it because most think you must be crazy when you explain symptoms
