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, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/infectious-diseases/symptoms-causes/syc-20351173.
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:/

Anyone have River Blindness in Southeastern US?
I have been dealing with a disabling and debilitating Parasitic ailment for more than 5 years now.
Started with tremendous hair loss and a scab on the outer corner of my left eye that couldn’t be removed. Also, Visible bugs Deep under dermis. And darker colored hairs than my natural hair color around these insects deep under skin. Have developed leopard spots and thin crepey looking skin on lower limbs on arms and legs.
As I am ONLY on Medicaid, and already on all types of meds due to seizures and resulting bone fractures, I have been prejudged as a drug seeker or someone with delusory parasitosis.
Specialist after specialist do not seem to have enough empathy to actually LISTEN to me. Much less diagnose me and help heal me properly. They will not view my thousands of pix of the striped large insects that are ejected in my stool (only during certain cycles of life stages.
I’m under age 50, female & Ive had part of my lung removed and have Glaucoma in one eye already. Not to mention several broken metatarsal bones in one foot. My teeth are now falling out. They are black!
I’ve resorted to taking canine versions of Ivermectin matching my weight every 4-5 months with Gawd Awful side effects.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to route my way thru this medical world, to find a tropical neglected disease specialist, an epidemiologist, who’s willing to diagnose me and properly eliminate the adult worms? I need at least 4-6 weeks of Doxycycline to eliminate the adult worms.
I am ready to end my life over this bloody horror & travesty of inaccurate & indifferent medical specialists.
Please—I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I WANT MY LIFE BACK!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you 🙏🏻

Hi! My heart breaks for you! I hope you didn’t follow through and are still here with us. My brother has parasites and is told it’s just in his head but they are real but he’s unable to get pictures because he lives by himself and it seems they only surface at night.would you have pics of the parasites you have and be able to share? Tks.
I sympathize for you. Have you looked into Microbe Formula? They have high-grade products and support. It’s a line that was created by doctors who suffered parasitic infections, and could not find a cure.
They not only look like hair….. They look like filmentous hyphae or dog hookworms. Or even filmentous anctinobacteria. There is a lot more to it. Mine started in July. I still can't even catagorize them as ameabo, works, fungus, or large bacteria. Craziest thing I've ever seen
Have u found any help? I've been going on 4 yrs also and I've seen 6 different drs at Mayo and they just dismiss me. I think they just don't want to deal with it. I begged my primary for the medicine albendazole cuz I've tried everything else without a prescription and he wouldn't. They are in every part of my body now and getting to end of dealing with this alone. I have probably 1000 pics and are pretty disturbing. I don't know how I've lasted thru this without losing it totally. I am going to a different emergency ward in the next couple days. Sick of trying to be my own surgeon and wearing gloves 24/7. I have found I was contaminating my own food by touching it with bare hands. I will try and let u know what happens.
I should add that those hairs are a form of them. They change into thicker worms. I think they are hookworms. I'm not sure where I got them. They cause sores and if I don't cut them out in time they change to other things which I'm not sure exactly just very painful and disgusting.
Does anyone know what parasite has a bird like head and some of them are spotted worms? I also have white patches with tails and dots in them on my arms and some on my legs that appeared one day. Anyone familiar with that? Help!
