Hair Loss-Causing Worms Live in the Scalp and Eyes of This Woman

“I have worms but they are all different looking,” says this reader, who seems to be struggling with some sort of medical condition. The worms are on her scalp, in her eyes and both her and her boyfriend have taken pinworm medication to try and counteract them.

Our reader says that she is not sure they are pinworms, despite having taken medication for them. She adds that she has not been able to see a doctor about her issue because of the ongoing pandemic. The worms are making “holes” in her skin and also causing her hair to fall out; in the photos below our reader shows us her hair loss. She does not pose any direct questions in her submission, but we will try our best to point our reader in the right direction for where she can go to seek help.

ATTENTION: GET PARASITE HELP NOW! At All About Worms we get a lot of questions about skin parasites, blood parasites, and intestinal parasites in humans. Because we can't diagnose you, we have put together this list of doctors and labs who understand and specialize in dealing with parasites in humans! That resource is HERE

This brings us to our first point. Giving our reader advice on where to seek help is unfortunately the most we can do. Since we are not medical professionals, we are not qualified to directly help our reader by diagnosing her problem or recommending any form of treatment. For that reason, we cannot identify the worms that are bothering her. What we will say about her current situation is that we do not recommend taking any medication unless it has been prescribed by a medical professional. We assume that since our reader was unable to see a doctor, she and her boyfriend took pinworm medication without being sure that was their problem. And our reader did say that she does not think they are pinworms. As we all know, medicine can have all sorts of side effects, so one does not want to be taking something that has not been prescribed to them.

Now, when it comes to seeking out a diagnosis and treatment from a medical professional, we would like to point our reader in the direction of Dr. Vipul Savaliya. Infectious disease specialist and founder of Infectious Disease Care (“IDCare”), Dr. Savaliya has a practice which is open to both in-person and online consultations and has been recommended by one of our own readers, who had a great experience with him. After communicating with Dr. Savaliya ourselves, he has expressed deep empathy for people dealing with the kinds of issues that our reader is dealing with, and he has agreed to consult anyone who thinks they may be experiencing symptoms of parasitic worms, or other worm-related health problems. As we said, his practice — though based in North Carolina — accepts online consultations, meaning our reader does not have be anywhere in the vicinity of his office to speak with him! She can reach Dr. Savaliya and his office through IDCare’s website at

Naturally, our reader could also look for an infectious disease specialist in her own area if she would prefer to have an in-person consultation, but if her doctor is unable to see her because of the virus, then the same might go for a lot of the specialists. But in the case that there are physicians who are accepting patients, then our reader can find her own infectious disease physician by simply doing a Google search for ‘infectious disease physician (name of her closest big city)’ or ‘travel disease doctor (name of her closest big city)’.

To conclude, we are not able identify what worms are plaguing our reader, as we are not medical professionals, and we sympathize for her and recognize that she has tried to get professional help, but was unfortunately turned away. However, we are confident that if our reader reaches out to Dr. Vipul Savaliya, or is able to book a consultation with another infectious disease physician, she will have her answers and treatment shortly. We wish her the best of luck!
