“My body had bites that itched” begins this reader in her submission about the “living bug or parasite” that is causing her problems. She does not ask any direct questions, but we will do our best to guide her down the path to medical advice and help.

Firstly, we think it important to note that we will not be able to identify any of the organisms she refers to, if this was her intention with sending us her story. This is because we are not medical professionals, and, as such, we are not qualified to identify parasites, as that would be tantamount to diagnosing a medical issue. What we can do, and what we will do, is point our reader in the right direction and provide some resources that she can utilize to obtain the medical advice she may need.

Secondly, it is equally important that we share our reader’s story, despite not being able to directly help with her problem, as we think others who might be experiencing something similar may get something out of this, whether that be comfort or the resources that we are going to share.

That said, before we get into the context, we must provide a reader discretion, as our reader’s descriptions of her symptoms are quite detailed. That said, none of the pictures are graphic, so our readers need not worry about that.

Our reader first found these organisms on her legs. Consequently, she discovered them on her vagina and on her lower backside. “It looked like a ringworm”, she reports. “But this living bug or parasite has attached itself to my body and laid eggs.” Her nose, nails, underarms and other areas have begun to “smell bad” and take on a “mold-like color.”

Additionally, she has been pulling “weird, sticky, bug-like things from her skin” and finding the bugs on her toilet paper after wiping. The organisms are clearly dead when discovered, and all look different. The first two images, as seen above are of the organisms that come from her when she urinates.

Thirdly, what we recommend is that our reader consult a medical parasitologist. These doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating parasitic infections and will be equipped to help her with this issue.

What we can recommend is that our reader do one or more of the following:
1) Search for a medical parasitologist in her 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 cannot say what our reader is dealing with, as we are neither qualified or equipped to do so. Despite that, we hope that the resources we provided will come to use and that our reader is able to get the answers she is looking for soon, as well as get the treatment she may potentially need. We wish her the very best!
