I Might Have A Parasite
I might have a parasite and I don't know what to do about it!
I felt a little tingle on my hand, and when I looked, there was a small yellowish worm-like thing wiggling, and sticking straight up like it was trying to burrow into my hand.
I swept it off, but I don't know if it is dead or not. I can't find it.
I'm not sure if it was a parasite or not, but I'm really scared it was, and I don't know what to do about it if it is.
It almost sounds like the little worm you saw was a type of little caterpillar. Did it look something like that?
Do you have a hole in your skin where it may have dug into your hand? If not, I'd really not worry about it too much unless you start to feel really unwell.
To be on the safe side, clean your skin with hydrogen peroxide and/or tea tree oil. To your good health!
