Hi, I am pretty sure that I have some type of worm. I actually have past a couple already and I can feel it too. I am not sure what to do. I am really embarrassed about it. And I dont know where it came from. I have tried to self medicate, but unsuccessfully. The thing I past was pretty big, a blackish color and looked like a jellyfish.
Anything I could find on the internet said something about rope worms. But what is that and is it medically recognized? I can still feel it in my throat.
I would very much appreciate some advise of what to do.

Thank you!

Dear *****,

It seems like an intestinal worm

You need to have a stool analysis for ova,cyst and parasite

This will help in identification of the exact parasite as the treatment will depend upon the type of parasite

Anal itching can be seen in a number of worms so you need to have a stool test to confirm and then get treatment accordingly
