I've been having problems with a rash for more than two years. I've went first to my regular doctor, who diagnosed me with poison ivy. Then, I went to a dermatologist, three of them actually, who all told me it was basically glorified rash. It kept getting worse and at one point became very infected from my scratching an picking at it.
Then, one day, I took my son to the walgreens for his school physical and the nurse practioner noticed my rash ad offered to take a look. She diagnosed it as scabies. I took permethrin and went back to the other doctors who disagreed and said it wasn't scabies.
Fast forward to now, when the rash has only gotten worse and now I am finding worms in my stool and last night I discovered a worm in my eye. Pictures are attached,
I've gone to the ER three times, without much help. Last night, the doctor looked at my eyes and said he didn't see anything. I didn't realize the thing was moving around and he didn't spot it. I felt like an idiot. I felt like I might be losing my mind. But, I looked this morning and saw something. I don't know for sure what it is, but I know it's not a normal thing to have in your eye. Please look at the picures and tell me what you think. I could really use some support because I'm so upset and worried and can't seem to get any medical care.
I live in Houston and have decided to change doctors and find someone at the Baylor Medical Center group to ask for help. They have specialists who are experts in tropical medicine and have advanced testing techniques. However, it takes time to see them and I wasn't able to get an appointment for more than a week from now. I'm tempted to go back to my regular doctor, who has been no help, to ask him to look at this thing in my eye. I'm desparate to get these things out of me and off me. It's maddening and is a constant distraction.
I know it's not like I have cancer or it's the end of the world. But, what misery.
Yes, I've been taking pet meds and coffee enemas, which has helped.
Here are my picures:
