HI I have discovered worms after years of skin blemishes, I got lesions years ago and never made the connection. I have subcutaneous filariasis, likely Mansonella Ozzardi.
Papules turn to macules, then lesions and you can see thready things in the wounds. Chest arms, face, back...I have worms in my cheeks, that feel like threads in the tissue inside my mouth- in every instance where I have had a lesion. I have pulled stark white threadworms out of my face which stretch up to an inch long, though the males seem to be tiny and gathered round a female.
Other symptoms have now surfaced, after having this for an estimated 5 years/ hedaches, even migranes, photophobia, joint pain- random, muscle and skin pains and stabbing feelings, fatigue, irritability (try pulling worms out of your body for 8 months and see how YOU feel, right?)
Now blurring of vision, ice cold feet,
The lesions itch like mad. I have some with dozens of worms in them. Finally getting a biopsy and bloodwork but docs here (FL) don;t beleive me and haven;t looked well, despite me bringing jars of worms.
Its a neglected tropical disease, and I lived in Caribbean 10 years. Theres apparently 8 types that affect humans.
