Phlegm Like There Are Worms When Experiencing Cough With Phlegm?
Good morning, good luck always
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, normally in the respiratory tract there will be no larvae or worms. If you find larvae in your sputum (especially if you see larvae live / move), chances are you have a worm infection in your digestive tract. After entering the digestive tract through the food eaten, the worms will migrate to the lungs and complete part of their life cycle before finally migrating back into the digestive tract. When completing this life cycle in the lungs, symptoms can occur such as coughing and worm larvae removal when coughing.
We recommend that you immediately conduct an examination to the doctor of internal medicine for further evaluation and management. The doctor will probably do a stool examination to find what worms are infecting you and provide appropriate treatment for the worm infection. The rules for taking worm medication for worm infections are different from the rules for taking worm medication for the prevention of intestinal worms (taking 1 medicine every 6 months), so you should check with your doctor first.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
