How to Find a Doctor to Test and Treat You When You Have Worms or Parasites in Your Body

“I was wondering if you know of any doctor in my area for me to go get tested for these parasites” asks this reader from Wichita, Kansas. He wonders “who would really help [him], unlike the rest of the doctors who just automatically dismiss [him] even though [he] could actually have a parasitic infection”.

Our reader’s question is one we get quite often, and is definitely valid. Too many times have we heard from our readers that they have been to see their doctors, only to get signed off as delusional or be ignored. Unfortunately, many doctors (GPs and ER doctors being the most common ones that people will go to for general problems) are not trained in the field of parasitology and are thus not equipped to deal with these kinds of issues. Of course, that does not justify the rudeness with which many patients are met, but it does explain the doctors’ common inability to treat this kind of medical problem.

So, this naturally begs the question that our reader is asking in the first place: where does one go for help with a parasitic infection? What we can recommend is that our reader do one or more of the following: 1) Search for a medical parasitologist in Wichita, Kansas using this directory of medical parasitology consultants: https://www.astmh.org/for-astmh-members/clinical-consultants-directory. 2) Search for a local parasitologist by doing a Google search for “medical parasitologist Wichita, Kansas” or “tropical medicine specialist Wichita, Kansas”. 3) Get in touch with Dr. Omar Amin at the Parasitology Center at https://www.parasitetesting.com.

Number three is especially relevant to our reader’s question about specifically getting tested, as one can order a stool-testing kit that one can send back and get tested for intestinal parasites. It is important that we note that even a doctor doing a remote health appointment from another state can still order lab tests where the patient is, so really any of these options are viable for our reader.

To conclude, our reader has a handful of routes he can go down when it comes to getting tested for parasites! We hope that this proves helpful to our reader and that, should he employ any one of these options, he gets the proper treatment he requires very soon.

  1. Ive tried ro rakw tons of pictyres of the “bugs” that are all iver my hine, bed, body, and all this spunds way too fsmiliar. Ive had pest control come in, they say they find nothing. Ive had people say im delusional, and its just in my head. One pest control person said i had lots of samples of herbs and spices but no bugs. So …since when do herbs and spices appear on your body…bite, itch, move, in hair and every single orifice in or on my body…. they are not just one color, or shape, from miniscule black dots, to white larvae looking , to pinworm looking, or pink or orange, and yet so small, magnifying on my phone camera ,doesnt always give a good enough picture to be a good identifier. I dont know if i have several strains of pinworms, or some other parasite ….even a long thin worm looking parasite with a purple head , but they ALL disturb sleep, and drive me absolutely crazy and yet im too embarrased to go to a doctor here as i dont want to be called crazy anymore, but i cant escape them and cant identify them, and the places they are, im so embarrassed to tell anyone, so try to deal with it all alone, and even reading all these articles, when anyone asks for an identification, they are refused due to ” non medical diagnosis” so basically im thinking, then what the hell is your point of having a site if you cant help anyone ? I get the stance of not wanting to seem like youre giving medical information, or advice , but truly , speaking for myself, so i suspect others may feel the same way, you offer hope of identifying what is making your life hell, then rip it away and we just want to know what the damn things are ! There are no apps that make a correct identification…..everything from spider mites to carpet beetle larvae to moth larvae, but none of those live inside people, or maybe all around them..enter the nose, ears, hair, not to mention other orifices and regions of the body. Thanks for having suggestions on ” finding a dr.that deals with parasites, i live in Canada , so not real helpful but more helpful than ” we know what that is, but cant tell you what that is coz we arent doctors”. Maybe develop an app that can show pictures and possible identifiers on human affected parasites…. THAT would be helpful

  2. I’m suffering from a multitude of symptoms due to a parasitic infection or more likely multiple parasitic infections. One symptom is the same as the woman with the hair parasite that is translucent with the back insect like looking creature. I’d like to as her some questions if possible. I’m truly afraid I’m going to die before I can find help. I’d like to be able to link up with the readers that are going through hell too. Thank you for this platform and all the information / awareness you are bringing to the otherwise oblivious public on parasites and the hidden human infections we’re secretly plagued with!!!
