The pictures he took are at 50-1000x magnification, so they show a lot of detail. This first photograph shows a brown and black stringy mass, which we suppose might be a worm-like organism. We are hesitant to confirm or deny that this man might have a parasitic infection because we are not medical professionals so we are not licensed to give medical advice. That being said, we will go through the rest of the pictures he sent us.

In this photograph we see a tiny black mass that has some thread-like hairs wrapping through it and emerging from one end. Again, we don’t feel comfortable speculating on if this may or may not be a parasite.

This is a fantastic photograph. It clearly shows some black (and one red) thread-like substances that are in the skin among his hair. The following photo also shows in great detail a single black thread-like substance against our readers skin and hair.
While we are not doctors or medical professionals, we have heard from readers who have experienced similar symptoms and have found strange fibers in their skin. We suggest that our reader see a doctor specializing in either infectious diseases or travel medicine (as travel medicine doctors are often much more familiar with parasitic infections) asap, and bring along the photos.
To wrap up, one of our readers has been experiencing full body symptoms and finding thread-like fibers in his skin. We encourage him to see a medical professional that is licensed to provide answers!
