Parasitic Worms? Itchy Anus And Pull Out A Feet Long Worm
May 12, 2014
last week, i felt itchiness in my anus. I felt for what was making it itchy because it was like something was moving, like a bug or something. Then i pulled out a worm that was about a foot long. it didn't have any 'sections', it was pinkish white and its ends were pointed, like a sharpened pencil. I then took mebendazole (antiox), all 100 ml of the liquid. After that, i had diarrhea for 4 days and a mild fever the day after taking the medication. The itching stopped, however. On the 5th day, my stool became solid again, BUT i noticed that i am starting to itch down there again. I took a stool test and they found that there were no parasites. The itching persisted so i took another 100ml dose of mebendazole. I noticed that when i sat in the toilet, a dead worm that was very small and whitish/transparent ish (like what pinworms look like?) was found. I'm not sure if it was a worm or my imagination because it was very small and hard to decipher since it was floating in the water. I'm not sure what to do now coz doctors are saying i tested negative for parasites, but i still feel the same kind of itching. I already took mebendazole last night but the itching is still present. what should i do?

I've been constipated for a week and have a very itchy anus. I have just been the toilet and my poo had a lot of white streaks in it. I'm worried that I may have worms. On my toilet paper there was something (not poo!) that was quite long (3cm ish). It was quite thick and pale in colour.. I just had a look down there and there were pale coloured bits around my anus where it's itching. I've also had white clumpy vaginal discharge the last few days which I assumed was thrush (I suffer from thrush a lot) but I had no vaginal itching (I usually have severe vaginal itching with thrush). I've just come on my period so I don't know whether I still have the discharge.

Extra details I had sex last weekend and I always get constipated after sex. Also I've had a cold all week so I didn't know whether it could just be mucus in my stools (but would I be itching as well??) Also I should note I had very bad stomach pains after seeing my boyfriend last weekend, however I don't know if it was just wind as I tend to hold in my farts when I'm there (I know I shouldn't do that but my boyfriend hates farting!!)
It all started three years first got a raw feeling around my anus them it started to itch bad day and night it felt like worms I took 3or 4boxes of worm tablet enough to kill a cow. I had a Sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy with no results it continued on the itching isn't as bad now but it still there mostly at night . It starts now at night when I'm in bed or when I'm relaxed . When Tgt starts it feels like ive to poo not a heavy feeling but like little bit of pressure in there but it feels like it's moving around I try to poop but nothing comes out .

Have had thread worms on and off. They are a nuisance but are of no ill effect apart from an itchy rear end! I have used Pripsen which has worked well and another form of tablet, the name of which escapes me, but the chemist recommended it when I asked for Pripsen. I am a businessman and list personal hygiene as very important, but these little beggars keep returning every now and again. Just keep taking the tablets!

I hate to think I might not be able to ever truly get rid of these pinworms. It started around October of 2014 where my butt was itchy and thought it couldn't be normal since it happened almost every night. I went to the Dr and explained to him what was happening and even said to him that maybe it was parasites. I didn't know at the time if it was or not but being from a Hispanic culture where if your butt is itchy you assume it's parasites. The Dr just said it was normal that some people had an itchy anus and gave me some cream to put on that area. Fast forward to march where I had to go back in because it didn't stop and had another Dr check and said maybe it was hemorroides so I was prescribed something for that. Then the itchiness came back and I FELT something squirm in my butt I was horrified, I checked and yup, it was a pinworm. I went back to the Dr and assured her I had worms so she prescribed me some pills. I toOK one already and am suppose to take another in 2 weeks. But the itchiness is horrible, I have kids who sometimes stay at their father's house and feel horrible that if they have them then the bed sheets or anything else might be infected. I told him to wash everything and explained how important it was, but he won't do the whole cleaning every day thing. I have washed all my sheets and towels and kids stuffed animals and had my carpet washed and everything but I work and go the class at night and can't wash every single day the way it's suggested. I've been changing underwear and washing daily and going crazy with hand sanitizer and lysol but I read lysol doesn't do anything. I was spraying lysol ever day and night all over my house but I guess that does nothing? I was wondering if maybe rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle might help instead? I need to know how else to keep the house clean if I cant wash the sheets daily. I am going insane. I want to get rid of these little monsters!! My mom told me to take a garlic clove and grind it up with a bit of this liquor called Aguardiente which is like liquorice but just a few drops and eat that early on the morning like 4 am or 5 am before I ate anything else, that what her grandma gave her when she was a young girl to prevent and get rid of parasites.

I have been fighting back and forth with myself whether or not I have thread worms. I've gone to great extents to disinfect my house, scrubbing down everything, changing sheets, getting rid of dust, washing loads of clothing.

I know a common symptom is "itching" at night. I've been getting great sleeps, not itchy at all in the night.
What I am worried about is sometimes I feel a wiggling sensation close to the anus. This happens once in awhile. Yesterday it happened twice, about mid day.
I've done the worm tape test, assessed my stool, and haven't seen any sign of them.
I was itchy yesterday afternoon although I currently have my period and often find that I feel a bit itchy whenever I have my period.
I was diagnosed with herpes last week but also in the past week I have had very itchy urinary tract all the way to the anus ,,the only way to soothe it is to squeeze itch my penis if that makes sense..I was on antibiotics and antiviral meds and it's been a week since I finished with them both ,and now this itchy urinary tract is here and it makes it hard to have sex with my wife for my penis is itchy inside the track and so it makes for not good sex.

TRIMETHOPRIM for urinary infections.
Firstly, after taking only 2 of the tablets, I had a red itchy rash on my feet - one was worse than the other. During the next 5 weeks, my feet rashed then burned, then blistered badly. They were very painful, and when the blisters eventually went, they left patches of raw skin on the soles of my feet which meant that I could not shower or bath because of the stinging. Now, almost 6 weeks later they are still peeling like mad and they have numerous patches of new pink skin both on the soles and sides of my feet..Each symptom was dealt with as it occurred, but I did suffer an awful lot of real pain and discomfort. The urine infection cleared up on its own a few days after I stopped taking the drug.
sometimes my palms and the soles of my feet get really hot(a burning sensation and really warm to the touch) red and itchy. I feels really good to put them under water but somehow i feel like this isn't good for it. so I just apply some unscented lotion.

I'm a 33 year old male. I had unprotected sex 5 months ago. I've been tested for HIV, herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis- all negative. My doctor, as well as a urologist, have both said I am fine. They say that it's related to stress because the unprotected sex was not with my wife (she's been tested and is negative too). The problem is that I still have burning in my penis and scrotum and tingling in my toes. I don't have any discharge and it doesn't hurt to pee. The burning is pretty constant. The itchy, warm anus is occasional. I've taken 3 different antibiotics and one nerve damage drug and no change.

It may be now that you are free of the actual worms that you are suffering from delusional parasitosis. I have read of many cases where the person suffers all the irritation but they do not have the worms.

It may be that you could benefit from some anti-depressants.
I have been taking them, and although my situation if not the same as yours, I have really benefited from the.
No sympathy from the doctor because the swabs came back negative, and he felt that I should be grateful for the result that the anti-depressants gave me.
I will however, in the future when I have given my body a rest from both medication and 'so called' herbal remedies, I will try again.
As you have stated no-one understand the constant itching and irritation, and they have little sympathy.
been suffering with really sore soles of both feet after walking or standing for too long they get that sore I want to walk on the sides of my feet just to take the presume off is this my fibro or something else??happens a few times now they do feel better after a nice warm soak

I have had this condition where when I am bit by something, may it be mosquito or ant bites, a small blister forms around it. It is extremely itchy, and when popped, the blistered area is ulcerated. Now it does not become painful at all, but becomes more itchy. when scratched, it rarely bleeds, but becomes itchier even when the skin is obviously more damaged. When I stop scratching, the area releases clear, very slightly yellowish liquid (i'm assuming it's some sort of antibody the body releases), and it takes a VERY long time to heal.Now when i do leave it alone, it heals up and becomes brown, but the scar is still very, VERY itchy, even if fully healed.I have been researching the internet to what it may be for days now, and I have not found what it is. I have used anti-bacterial creams but it does not help. I am not sure if this could be a parasite, or could be fungal.

I have a worm infestation in my face. They travel around under the skin leaving tracks and bursting holes into my skin. they create glass like balls that split the skin open and move around my skin with ease.

I first reported it 3 months ago and the doctors totally ignored me treating me for a secondary infection that was caused by open wounds in my face. They have given me 4 courses of antibiotics treating the wrong infect but totally ignored what I was telling them about the worms.
The worms whatever they are are very sharp and wherever they travel through in my face the skin collapses, leaving it like plasticine and it causes tiny splinters that are as sharp as anything that embed themselves in the inside and outside of my skin right down to the lowest skin level. My skin is also producing a clear sticky substance which feels like little shards of glass if I touch it. All in all, it really couldn't be much worse except for the fact they have made a hole around my mouth which they can look out of. I am totally sane!
I am in pieces. I've been telling the doctors what it is and they have totally ignored me. Even refusing to refer after an A & E i visited confirmed I needed to be referred as the lesions had been on my face for so long.
I discovered I had private medical care through my company which now thank god means I've seen my first dermatologist. He's referred me to another dermatologist that apparently knows more about things in the skin who I'm yet to see. Even though he's now put me in the right direction, I'm not convinced he was sure it is worms. I can pull 1/2 inch worms out of my skin bit by bit. They look like thread worms and never come out intact, you pull little bits off of them. It leaves worm shape dents in my face and they feel like little match sticks under the skin. Nobody is taking me seriously as people don't really get worms in the face.
They have totally destroyed me skin and I have bad scarring. I have never had acne and had no scarring. This has all been caused in the last 3 months. I dread to think how many are alive in there now they've been left so long.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?
So I have this weird looking pimple like wart like things while I pull back on my foreskin. And the weird thing is that I've never had sexual intercourse ever in my life. I was wondering what it could be.

I have been diagnosed with WG and am on the usual medication.

WG attacked my nervous system. My feet are swollen and movement is painful. At night the swellings subsided but the moment I get up and move around the swelling flares up.
My hands have also been affected. The fingers are dead, no feeling and no muscle movement possible - cannot use the left hand at all. The right hand I can still use but the skin feels numb.
I had a vasectomy a week ago and I'm experiencing a decent amount of pain in my left testicle.

I noticed while urinating that when I pulled forward on my penis as I finished that my left testicle hurts and is being pulled forward with the skin.
While on the pain meds I tested a bit more, as I continue to pull forward the left testicle comes forward more and if I tilt upwards it is also pulled outward so that it is standing out at a good angle.
When I do this there is a pocket of loose skin behind the testicle where it would normally be sitting.
(Trying to be as descriptive as possible here, if I were to lay on my back with an erection my testicles would be standing up as the highest point.)
I can feel under the incision that there is extra mass on the left side that seems to be connected to the testicle which is not present on the right side.
Basically any movement of my left testicle is painful, holding it closer to the incision site seems to help.
I'm worried that something coming off of the testicle got stitched in on accident or that it is just healing that way. This CANNOT be a permanent thing.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so did your testicle movement go back to normal on its own and if so how quickly?
I know it's because I masturbate a lot.

At first, it was itching/burning after I pee, now it's just very swollen, reddish in one area (very small), dry and I cannot pull the foreskin back and when I clean it with hot water and a rag, I see little flakes.
Should I just keep it clean and not worry?
I'm going to fly into the sun b4 I masturbate again.
