“Please help, I have things clawing in my veins,” states this reader in his submission regarding the organisms pictured below. He states that he has “stuff” on all of his “lipnotes” and it is “very uncomfortable.”
We are not entirely sure what our reader means by “lipnotes”, though we suppose he might mean his lymph nodes. In any case, we will help our reader in the ways that we can. What we mean by this is that we will unfortunately not be able to provide any direct help, such as identifying the creatures or suggesting medications, as we are not medical professionals. In other words, we are not qualified to help a reader who describes suffering from symptoms, or who suggests that worms are inside their body. That said, what we can do to help is to suggest some places he can go for a medical professional’s opinion and help.
In this particular case, we would advise that he consult a medical parasitologist, as they will have a better grasp on organisms infecting the body than a GP or ER doctor. So, what we can recommend is that our reader do one or more of the following:
1) Search for a medical parasitologist in their area 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 (name of the closest big city)” or “tropical medicine specialist (name of the closest big city)”.
3) Get in touch with Dr. Omar Amin at the Parasitology Center at https://www.parasitetesting.com.
In conclusion, we sympathise with our reader and his condition, but there is unfortunately little we can do so far as directly easing his discomfort. That said, we hope that he can find the relief he is looking for by following one of the links provided above, and we wish him the very best.

Same here in Texas..a living nightmare..3 doctors all ended with severe allergies and steroids and shot..little things help but have not been able to rid myself of this plague on my entire body..endocrinologist is my next hope at healing.
I have been pucking at my fingers since 2018 with those things crawling under my skin, the ER said, i dont see anything, go see your primary, went to walk in clinic, same thing. I first noticed my pours changed color, dark, now they are from head to toe and i am always picking looking, taking pics, in my eyes nose. What are they? Breathing, heart problems now joints hurt like hell. They need to help us not turn is away.
I have the same issues going on. Almost exactly what was described. Drs only think that I have a screw loose.
