“I found this in my home”, states this reader about the long, white worm-like organism pictured below. “I have been tortured lately by some unknown “thing” in my house. May it be bugs, worms, or something else; I found this when I woke up after a very rough night. I got a ton of bites on me. I’m not sure what’s going on but please give advice. Any is helpful. I know you can’t give medical advice but if you can try to identify the possible “worm” pictures that would be great. I was leaning towards a tapeworm possibly. Thank you for your time.”
Now, despite our reader stating that she understands that we cannot give medical advice, she still ends up asking for such advice; she states explicitly that the worms are biting her and that she thinks they may be tapeworms (which are parasites). To be clear, she is correct in saying we cannot provide medical advice, and the reason for this is that we are not medical professionals. As such, we are not qualified or legally able to provide any advice or identifications when it comes to organisms affecting human or animal health, as doing so could be construed as medical advice.
What we can say is that, since these worms seem to be roaming her home, we recommend that she vacuums her home thoroughly, as she may successfully vacuum up any worms, especially the younger ones that will be harder to spot, and any eggs they may have laid. Likewise, in the case that these worms came up from her drains, she may want to clean her drains properly.
What we can do is point our reader in the direction of medical professionals who will be able to help her. Specifically, we recommend consulting a medical parasitologist, since she is worried about tapeworms. Medical parasitologists are physicians which specialize in diagnosing and treating parasites, as well as other organisms that negatively affect human health. To find one, our reader can 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.
To conclude, we are unfortunately neither able to identify the worms our reader has been dealing with nor give her advice as to how to treat them. We hope nonetheless that the advice and resources we did provide proves helpful. We wish her the very best!
