“I have had a scalp and hair problem for a bit now” begins this reader in her submission concerning the “pod-like things” she has been finding in her hair. Our reader asks for our advice on the issue, and wonders if she should consult a specialist.

This problem started when our reader tried to pop what she assumed to be a blackhead. What made this blackhead different was that it “seemed to move” and our reader “couldn’t get it”. Since then, the blackhead, “or mound”, has grown in size. At first, it was the size of a dime, then it grew to a quarter, and lastly to a fifty-cent coin. As a result, our reader’s scalp has felt very dry and her hair has become “crispy” and “crunchy”. She specifies that she found the pod-like organisms “behind those crumbled hair clusters”. Likewise, she reports that her hair does not feel like her own; when she brushes it out, it either resembles “synthetic” “bluish-black” hair, which “stands erect on its own”, or it is a transparent white color. The only time her scalp and hair feel normal is after she wrings out her hair and it stops feeling “feeling squishy or shooting out water droplets”.

Now, our reader reports being told to consult a dermatologist, but because of the ongoing pandemic, she has not done so. Regardless, we agree with our reader that she should see a specialist. However, instead of seeing a dermatologist, we instead recommend consulting a medical parasitologist, which is a physician who specializes in parasitic infections. We are not saying that this is definitely a parasite, but since our reader thinks her issue may be related to the presence of an organism, then a parasitologist is the best person to go to. Having said that, 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. 4) Contact Dr. Vipul Savaliya of Infectious Disease Care (“IDCare”) at idcarepa.com.

To conclude, we definitely think our reader should consult a specialist, and particularly a parasite specialist, as they will be able to diagnose and treat her problem. We hope this article answered her question, and we wish her the very best!

  1. Telling what the worm is would not be a diagnosis, it would be worm identification. That is what you do. So if an earthworm decided to crawl up my nose and live in there, when you call it what it is, that does not mean you said I have earthwormup thenosotis. It means that is an earthworm. Then I can go to the doctor and have it evicted. Please help people by giving their worms a name if you know it. It’s not a diagnosis, but at least they will know they aren’t making it up in their head(BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT DELUSIONAL)!!! Thank you.

  2. I have tangled balls of hair UNDER my scalp that have hard pods in them that a large whitish clearish yellowish worm will come out of if disturbed. There are also taller grey/clear ones, and lot s of tiny white ones that I think are strongyloides; because they straighten and stand up and have a sheath around them when they come out of my mouth. They are eating my teeth from the inside out. They go through the lymphatic channels. I have hookworms and ascaris too. I had a treatment that reduced my immune system and bird mites attacked me and now I’m in hell. What I want to know is why you worm experts are hearing the same complaints over and over from all around the world, and you can’t figure out what that little white worm is that is plaguing so many people who are being tortured and then called delusional? Why aren’t you investigating it so as to answer this question? Because so many hundreds of thousands of people have this now, you are going to have it too if somebody doesn’t throw that diagnosis out the window and find out what this is. There has to be an answer, and I think it’s time to stop the suffering of millions since Eckbom was too lazy to do it way back then.. This site is a waste of time until this issue gets figured out.. it is hell and it’s definitely contagious, so best get on this problem before it’s worse than COVID. They won’t let any of us get ivermectin either. Can you imagine a parasite pandemic? We are right on the brink of one, so….if you need help, that is all I live for. Don’t you dare share this email for making my plight a public spectacle or for profit because nothing works since we can’t identify it. I’d appreciate it.

  3. I’m dealing with this now. I believe it is a horse hair worm. I used to have hair down to my mid back. Never had short hair. Now it’s above my ears. I had to chop it off. It tangled and matted so bad just over night. I did oil treatments. Everything. Nothing. Had to chop it off. But that’s the least of my worries. I have this mess on every surface of my body. In my ears. In my nose. My eyes. And believe it or not. My tonsils. No doctors have cared enough to run the tests or even take a dam hair sample and look under a microscope. I’ve been to about 10 different places. Been treated like shit. And I’m pretty sure I’m on the run at the moment from the “mental health” hall at the local hospital. This has gone on for 6 months. And yet have I gotten the help I need. And now my 9 year old has it. I’m pissed. I’m sad. I’m confused. It’s miserable and I feel awful for her. I have parasite specialist appt tomorrow but I don’t have high hopes cus nobody has cared for this long. But i will get answers. Hope you figured it out. If so plz let me know.
