Worm Embedded In My Gum
(Medford, OR, USA)
Worm embedded in my gum, what is this?
I just got back from a trip to Thailand and my lower gum started hurting. I noticed a pimple like bump and when I put pressure on it a worm came out of the bump and a round, hard, shell like object came out of the pimple as well.
It was very small, like the size of the tip of a pencil.
I am afraid if this was in my gum, maybe I ingested more and they are in my intestinal system or blood stream.
Has anyone heard of this before?
Yikes! If I found a worm embedded in my gum, I would definitely be horrified and have the same concerns that you are having.
Many people don't realize how easy it is to pick up parasites. Some are more aware of it when traveling abroad, but it is just as easy to pick up parasites in the US.
Anyway, I would personally do a good parasite and intestinal cleanse. It will hopefully get rid of any lingering parasite of the kind you are describing as well as any other "stow aways" you might have brought back with you.
It's pretty simple if you use Para 90
and Herbal Fiberblend
for cleansing. Between the two you get a good variety of anti-parasitic herbs to cover a very wide range of parasites.
As unsettling as the whole experience must have been, it's not too worrisome if you deal with it quickly and efficiently.
Either while you are cleansing or immediately afterward, it would be a good idea to replenish the good bacteria in your body by taking some probiotics, like Florafood
or another similar range.
Hope this helps and that you don't have to deal with any more unpleasant surprises. To your good health!
