“What kind of work will do its best to crawl in the skin and leave you with eggs coming out of your skin?” asks this reader in her submission. When she blows her nose, “egg-like things” come forth, and she is understandably “scared” for herself.
No pictures are attached to our reader’s submission, but we will nonetheless do our best to help our reader with her situation. She states she does not know who to turn to for help except for us. Now, while we are glad that our reader considers us a safe place to turn to for help, we must preface this article by stating that we will not be able to identify whatever organisms are plaguing our reader. Since she has made it explicit that these organisms are crawling through her skin and laying eggs in her, this situation is clearly medical in nature. Consequently, we are not qualified to identify these organisms, as we are not medical professionals. What we can do is point our reader in the direction of other people who can help her.
ATTENTION: GET PARASITE HELP NOW! At All About Worms we get a lot of questions about skin parasites, blood parasites, and intestinal parasites in humans. Because we can't diagnose you, we have put together this list of doctors and labs who understand and specialize in dealing with parasites in humans! That resource is HERE
In particular, we want to point our reader in the direction of qualified parasitologists. To be even more specific, we recommend that our reader contact an infectious disease physician, as they specialize in the medical study of parasites, and are capable of diagnosing and treating infections of this nature.
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.
We should note that the two physicians mentioned by name are able to consult patients online, so our reader needs not be physically close to their offices to get treatment.

All About Worms is and always has been a free resource. We don't hide our articles behind a paywall, or make you give us your email address, or restrict the number of articles you can read in a month if you don't give us money.

To conclude, we cannot tell our reader what it is that is bothering her, as we are not qualified to do so.

We wish her the very best.
