Black Worms That Burrow Into Toes

by Cristobal Salvaje
(Chuluota, FL )

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?

Dear Cristobal,

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.

Here are my favorites for getting the best results to improve digestive health issues...

Hope you are able to get yourself turned around and feeling wonderfully soon.

To your good health!

Hi I have just got back from the tropical diseases expert in Melbourne as I have the same thing I picked up in India - he assured me that I have a non human variety of hook worm that can not enter my blood stream as I am not the appropriate host. He stated to treat the area as if its a callous and eventually they will die out - I have already treated them with an acidic cornplaster which I believed cooked them and took a herbal parasite treatment with no obvious worms detected in my pooh - don't worry and get the test for strongiloides.

Confusion Over Parasites
by: Angie

I'm sorry that the doctors are confusing you and not being very helpful. Have you tried a natural cleanse yet?

The sensations you are describing of feeling like you are being eaten alive inside by fleas, etc., sounds like you have intestinal parasites or fungal overgrowth.

I think the best option is to do an internal cleanse using Herbal Fiberblend. If you use it faithfully for a few months and support your immune system with probiotics and good nutrition, you should be able to eliminate the problem completely.

Let me know if you need more help.

I saw different doctor and they got me more confuse because they contradict themselves. I am worried because one of them said I have lyme disease.

What is killing me is that I feel like I am being eaten alive by fleas under my skin all over may body including my private parts.

I remember when I was little girl I expulsed big parasites. Please help me.
