I have pimples that look like tiny worms, tried ivermectin?

Help me please! I pulled this out of my face. It looked like a pimple. I have other pimples that now look like tiny worms in my face, arms, and legs. I expelled one 2 inches long in my in my stool. It was flat with dark then light square pattern. I have tried ivermectin in desperation. But I don’t know if that’s what I should be taking and how long to take it. They came out my eyes too, looked like little hairs and larvae. I had slight edema in my ankle and sometimes feel stickyness on my skin. I keep getting things inside me. I was cleaning a dirty stove today and a red dot attatched to my leg, that turned into a worm after I tried to scrape it off. It then had little ones spread around it. I’m really scared. Please help me!

Hi
It is called white worms, it is actually pus covered by your skin, it usually arise if you have sever abdominal infection or low hygiene , I also need to know if you have anus itching or any other respiratory problems , depending on your answer I can guide you better, for now it is nothing serious, see a dermatologist and an internal medicine doctor , if that is not available I will expect your reply about my questions
Good Luck

Hi,
These are pus filled pimples due to low hygenic level or infection , i recommend a stool analysis , and try maintaining clean skin and you can use a skin rinse solution .

Hello, thank you for your reply. I thought I posted a picture but it didn’t show up. I actually pulled a fly or flea thing out of the first pimple. I am super hygienic, hardly ever have any type of acne. No respiratory or abdominal problems, and no anal itch. I’m very healthy besides this. Someone crashed through my house and the cleaning of the old broken basement wall is what started it all. I felt being bit the whole time, just couldn’t see anything. The dirty stove is due to the crash as well. Same old wall I was… Read more »

Hi..
Your symptoms are clear indication of Infection that can be an outcome of poor hygiene.
The skin pores can get occluded and infected..
You should consult an Emergency room and get evaluated..
A stool analysis and microscopy of pus should be done..
Also use a mild soap and warm water for cleaning..
Also upload clear pictures so that I can advise you better..

Regards..

I have really good hygiene. I only use Noxema on my face and shower 1 to 3 times per day. Definitely not that. I think I picked something up cleaning the 100 year old wall. It seems like a sand flea, I realize that it would be extremely rare. So I’m trying to see what else would be more likely. I don’t drink or use drugs. I don’t have any past psych history.

The “pimple” became red, sore, and had an opening after a week with a pus colored larva looking thing around 2 mm in diameter poking through and moved around. I used the center of an olive fork to slide over it and expel it. I was surprised it came out brown. Under a magnifier could see it was clearly a fly or flea. There was also another “pimple” containing a pre- pupa ( I think?) pinkish and looks like a jelly shell. This one I removed a few cm away from the “fly” pimple. Have pics and saved that sample… Read more »

Hi
Your symptoms does not point to a specific problem, so did you travel lately?
I recommend using Dapsone
It should be the best choice if it’s a bug bite that caused systemic infection
Good Luck

I live in PA and have not traveled outside the United States. I really think I have onchocerca and Loa Loa. I have swelling between my thumb and pointer finger. I felt something in my eye area. Vision gets blurry sometimes. No previous vision problems
