Looking for anyone that defeated or can relate with parasites that look like hair in ur hair please lemme know because drs won’t help

Hello @wendybelike and welcome to Connect.

I can hear the concern in your post about parasites. I tried researching a bit about parasites that resemble hair and it does seem that there are some out there, but not being a medical professional myself I do not feel comfortable sharing information from sources I am unfamiliar with.

I have also included Mayo Clinic’s page on Infectious Disease that also includes a link to request an appointment and a second opinion should you seek one,

If you feel comfortable sharing, could you tell us a bit more about what you think they are? You mention they look like hair, are they causing irritation on the scalp? You also mention that doctors have not been of any help, did they run any tests or take any samples?

Do you have any pics of these parasites? Do they come out? What part of the body are you finding them? Tks.

Hi, I would like to know if you ever got any help? I have been in the same situation, and I do have pictures. I have been to so many doctors. This has been going on almost 4 years. Something is in my scalp. Please reply.

In this case it is more like a worms, that only surfaces at night or in the dark. Sometimes pulsates as if laying eggs. He’s been tortured with this for years and this has affected his whole social life and causes much anxiety. No help from doctors. They all think it’s in his mind. Hard to take pictures because they recline in light:/
