It is sad but true, docs most likely are taught in med school that no american has scattered parasites. Its rare they say, so u dont have it. Its an atrosity. Several have put their trust in doctors testing only to be labled crazy, when there is a serious disabling disease lurking right under their skin. There just doesnt seem any testing or concern for the ones unlucky enuf to have caught this disease. It is great that u are getting your surface skin ones extracted and that u have a decent doctor. We wait for someone in the med system to hear our cries and help find a cure for the scattered. Someday maybe, as more and more people are infected by a disease that could possibly be contageous, the medical system may be of help. But as of this day and age we are left to suffer, leaving our prayers behind for the next generation of parasite plagued.
