Worm Under Skin On Finger Tip
What is this worm under skin on finger tip?
My mom had a small brown dot on the tip of her pointer finger. When she rubbed it, a small brown-headed, tan worm began to pop out and she then pulled it out of her finger.
It was about 1 inch in length and she said it was very mushy when she squeezed it.
What kind of worm is this, or is it a parasite? Where would she have gotten this from? Do you think there is more under her skin somewhere and is this a dangerous situation?
Does your mother do any gardening? Does she have any pets? Those are my first thoughts as to where she may have picked up a worm under her skin on finger tip.
Does your mom have any particular health issues that could be symptoms of a parasite infection?
