Intestinal parasites can live in a person’s digestive system for years, without causing any apparent symptoms. But over time, the parasites eventually multiply and pass through the intestines. It is at this time that we will see different symptoms appear, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas and bloating, vomiting, itching around the anus, fatigue, weight loss. In view of the symptoms, it becomes imperative to eliminate them.
Parasites enter the human body through food or contaminated water, agents such as mosquitoes, sexual contact and even through the nose and skin. Other common causes are lack of hygiene, exposure to areas known to have parasites, weakness of the immune system and eating raw or undercooked meat.
Depending on the type of intestinal worms, a person may experience different symptoms, such as upset stomach, gas, dysentery, diarrhea, bad breath, constant feelings of hunger, restless sleep, itching around the anus , anemia, weakness, weight loss, frequent headaches, fever, nausea, leg pain and nutritional disorders.
