Hello, good morning Melon001 ...
Previously, it should be known in advance that conditions of the skin are very difficult to diagnose without us seeing and checking directly. The description you mentioned about your injury is very subjective, so it is feared that there will be a difference in perception between your delivery and what we understand.
Worm-shaped wounds on the skin may have been caused by:
cutaneus migrans larvae, which is a hookworm infection that is commonly found in animals such as cats, dogs, horses, etc. This infection can occur for example when someone walks barefoot in an area contaminated with animal feces such as in a park or beach, or from a moist object such as a towel.
scabies / scabies
To ascertain what condition you are experiencing, it requires a direct examination by a doctor, therefore we recommend that you see a doctor (more specifically to a dermatologist). The doctor will conduct questions and answers about complaints, conduct physical examinations, and if needed the doctor may suggest supporting examinations such as examinations by taking preparations from skin tissue, blood lab tests, etc.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
