Signs helminthic infestation in humans

Helminthiases (worm infestation) - a parasitic disease caused by helminths (parasitic worms, worms).Suspect worm infestation in humans can be by the following features: disorders of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), the presence of asthenic-neurotic syndrome, the occurrence of allergies and skin problems, reduced immunity, and therefore the development of infectious diseases, the occurrence of anemia, eosinophilia, appearance of painin the bones and joints.The mechanism of the onset of symptoms of infection in humans is associated with sensitization waste products (metabolism and decay) of parasites, as well as mechanical damage to th
e organs or tissues parasites.

Violations of the gastrointestinal tract

The most common worms are located in the intestine, so the symptoms of helminthic infestation include various irregularities in the digestive tract.It can be constipation, diarrhea, flatulence (bloating), nausea, itching in the anus, weight loss, and intermittent pain near the navel or in the right upper quadrant.These signs of the presence of worms in humans can be either mild or be more intense and prolonged.Severity of symptoms depends on the massiveness of infection or re-infestation (self-infection) with helminths.

asthenoneurotic syndrome

Helminthes throughout his life emit decay products, which in turn toxic to the human body.Most of the toxins affect the nervous system, hence there are signs of violation.It may be headache, dizziness, weakness, malaise, anxiety, malaise, sleep disturbances, teeth grinding during sleep.Children can be capricious, cry at night, keep learning.There is not anything else related depression and irritability.After treatment, the person becomes calm and balanced, normal sleep.

Violations by skin

When helminthic infestations may develop allergic reactions: itching, hives.The skin may appear: various rashes, acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis.Also on the skin pigmentation can be as difficult to cope with liver toxins worms.Thinning hair and nails become dry and brittle.Some species of helminths lay eggs under the skin, they appear as dense nodes.Furthermore helminth eggs in the nodes themselves may be helminths.These nodes can be several, they come in different sizes, painless to palpation, and the skin over them is not changed.

Immunosuppression and development of infectious diseases

helminthoses When there is a loss of vitamins and minerals, and therefore reduces human immunity.There are a variety of infectious and inflammatory diseases.This may be nasal inflammation (sinusitis, sinusitis), stomatitis, frequent colds, acute respiratory viral infections, herpes, goiter, inflammation of the uterus in women, and many others.Also, when helminthiasis is very frequent exacerbation of existing chronic diseases.Worm infestation due to a weakened immune system can lead to the development of another cancer.

pain in muscles and joints

parasites during their life may settle in the muscles or joints, causing their inflammation.Arthritis (joint inflammation) and myositis are a manifestation of mechanical trauma, applied helminths or immune reaction to their presence.When inflammation in the joints or muscles there are painful sensations.Often, these symptoms are not perceived as a manifestation of helminthiasis and prescribed symptomatic treatment, which does not yield good results.

Changes in the clinical analysis of blood

Helminthes some species attach themselves to the intestinal wall and feed on blood, causing anemia (iron deficiency) in humans.Also characteristic of the presence of worms in the clinical analysis of blood eosinophilia is as sharply increases the number of eosinophils.Another may be a slight leukocytosis (when increased white blood cell count).
