White Worms in a Wound, Cut, or Sore

Recently we received a worrying question from a reader about her brother, who we are told has white worms underneath his skin. The worms only “come out of sores,” which we suppose means that the worms are found only in ruptured parts of the skin. We are not sure if there is a relationship between the wounds and the white worms under the skin; in other words, it is unclear if the worms are thought to be causing the sores, or if the wounds are incurred some other way, and then the worms are found in them. The reader was of course wondering what the worms underneath the skin and in the sores of her brother are.
