Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
It needs to be explored further about the parasitic / worm infestation condition that you are concerned about. Please note whether the main complaints you feel (pain, swelling, itching, redness in the foot area) experienced, since when the complaint was experienced, whether there are other complaints that accompany (fever, swelling, discharge from the skin lesion area), the shape of the lesion skin experienced (padacutaneous larva migrans can be found skin lesions that form a winding line resembling snakes), a history of allergies, and a history of treatment that you have done related to the complaint.
Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) is an infection caused by worm parasites on the skin. The type of worm that usually causes this condition is hookworm. In the initial conditions it can feel itchy, swollen, a sensation like being punctured in the area that is experiencing the parasitic infestation. Some other conditions of skin disorders can be a differential diagnosis of CLM, including skin inflammation (contact dermatitis), fungal infections (dermatophytosis), Lyme disease, photodermatitis, and scabies (scabies).
It is advisable to consult a doctor or dermatologist regarding further examination and management of your condition. It is necessary to examine the skin lesions that you experience and ascertain the complications that you are worried about yourself. Treatment will be adjusted to the medical condition that is the diagnosis after the examination and consultation of the doctor. Avoid humid conditions in the area that you suspect are parasitic infestations, avoid taking medication alone without doctor's instructions, avoid working or doing activities without using footwear.
