I'm in PA too. It seems like we have a major outbreak of parasites here. The doctors are clueless and wont help. Why we cant get parasite drugs anymore is beyond belief. I wen the route of ordering what I needed online and using animal meds. I'm not sure what you have. It could be a type of tape worm but the clear tube things sound like roundworms. Round worms like Ascaris and hookworms and strongyloides will also travel through your lungs and heart and can get lodged in body tissues.It sounds like a round worm issue since you have rashes. When hookworms are young they are clear. Ascaris can get big and shed skin. Your best treatment option is Albendazole.
