Black Worms That Burrow Into Toes
by Cristobal Salvaje

I used to live in a small town in Bolivia. On occasion I would get these small black worms that would burrow into my toes.
I would only get these guys when I was walking through sandy areas, and one time I received about a dozen after taking a trip to the river.
The villagers would call them Niguas (but that was the name in Besiro). Anyway, a lady would always try to pull them out for me and when they did a small long (very long) white eggs sac strand would pop out with them.
I am concerned if a few of them are still in me. Should I be worried?
Since Bolivia about 3 times a year I get stomach issues that seem to pop out of nowhere.
Could these little guys have found their way to my stomach? I also had Amoebic dysentery a couple of times and was hospitalized. They nutron bombed my stomach with Ciprofloxacin and this occurred after the niguas invaded me.
Would the Cipro have killed the worms if they were still in me?
I'm sure it's possible that some of the initial worms could still be in you, via the eggs, etc. Parasites can live and breed in our bodies for many years if not completely eliminated.
The fact that you are getting recurring stomach problems does seem to indicate that you do have either parasites or some other intestinal issue that needs to be dealt with.
Although you took the Cipro, that's not a guarantee that you would have gotten rid of all parasites. In fact, because of the nature of the drug, it would have probably weakened your immune system in the process by killing off the good and friendly bacteria in your system.
If you didn't get all of the worms/bacteria during that time, they would then have the opportunity to reproduce and start causing you trouble all over again.
I would suggest that you give yourself a safe natural intestinal herbal cleanse and begin taking daily probiotics. This will help you eliminate possible parasites and replenish your good bacteria, too.

Hope you are able to get yourself turned around and feeling wonderfully soon.To your good health!
