Worms in Humans


Quote:
Hookworm: Hookworms fall under a class of roundworms. The larvae of the hookworm can gain the entry into the human body through the openings of the sweat glands or hair follicles in the skin. This may happen with you, if the soil you are walking, laying or sleeping on is contaminated by the hookworm larvae.
Okay that's it...I'm deworming myself. I walk barefoot all the time, occasionally even when I have weekend kennels at work...

Not sure which is worse.. Having dewormed myself and am pretty sure I had worms.. Or the people that now have to wait till tomorrow to get stuff to deworm themselves as they are now sketched hahaha

I suggest waiting till evening to do it. I feel really gross and have made multiple potty trips..

I knew you could get hookworm from being barefoot.. I just didn't think of the commonness that it could happen..

Walmart, Walgreens, etc should have pyrantel. I found some on sale at Dillon's before but didn't buy it. It's apparently a pretty common thing to deworm kids when they have pinworms.

I've actually figured it's pretty likely that I have worms, but I didn't think there was anything I could do about it without seeing a doctor. And since I'm not dying or anything lol, I've never been too concerned.

I'm around worm infested dogs A LOT. Aside from my own dogs, most of the dogs I'm around are rescue dogs with unknown backgrounds. Just this weekend at work I was loving on a rescue dog that's boarding there (he's a catahoula pup, completely irresistible), and today they ran a fecal on him.... ta da! He has hookworms!

Lucy had hookworms as a pup and I was soooo paranoid that I was going to get them... now I'm wondering if I actually did.... lol. Deworming myself doesn't sound like such a bad option!! But seriously I can't believe it's something that's never talked about with humans.

I found these two brands on the Walgreens website:
Reese's*Pinworm Medicine | Walgreens

Parasitol*Parasiticide Suspension | Walgreens

One is banana flavored and one is cherry flavored lol. I'm so tempted to buy some but... I'm kind of scared? I'd rather just carry on in ignorance and ignore the fact that I might have worms.
