Re: Cutaneous Larva Migrans / fisherman's friend lozenges/
Two things. I haven't been on the board in a while. You can get the Lofthouse's Fisherman's Friend Menthol Cough Suppressant Lozenges at a CVS, Walgreens, in the cough drop section. Mine came in a tin box. I'm glad I'm re-reading what I wrote 4 years ago because I'm going to buy them again because I honestly think I have worms in my MOUTH.
Second thing: You mentioned you went the hospital and felt wonderful until you stopped Antibiotics
. Same thing happened to me. I was there because I had a red film over my eye and I thought I was going to go blind although I could see. Although it was obvious even to the hospital I needed care. I felt GREAT four days after my hospital stay. Then I felt lousy again.
Third thing off topic: were you the one with the hookworm outside of your skin? Take a look at the images here for cat scratch fever: https://www.google.com/search?q=cat+scratch+fever&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjT-oqRj4XLAhWOhhoKHZ-IBrIQ_AUICCgC&biw=1280&bih=675#imgrc=CfKLPi10N4OZOM%3A
There's one pic in the third row with a red thing near the ear.
I'm off to look at cat scratch fever and see what kind of test is needed for that (since in the pictures in the above link, people also had eye problems, so do I), along with what kind of test is needed for toxacara (ELISA test?).. maybe my physician will be willing to order blood tests
- you can call me "Cat"
