The Sensation Is Like Something Is Moving Under The Skin Of The Thigh Accompanied By Streaks Resembling Veins
Hello my doctor Ariza 31 yr underneath the skin of my thighs like someone is moving and then the veins look red but don’t stick out, can you say it’s a worm? Approximately what should be done as well as what drugs should be consumed? Thank you in advance Thank you
Thank you for the question.
A sensation like something moving under the skin of the thigh, accompanied by the appearance of streaks resembling veins, can indeed indicate a skin infection by worms (cutaneous larva migrans, CLM). This disease is caused by hookworm, which can enter the body due to direct contact between the skin and soil or sand contaminated with hookworm larvae. Initially, these worms used to live and develop in the intestines of animals, such as cats, dogs, sheep, and horses.
Not only CLM, your complaint may also be caused by other factors, for example varicose veins, contact dermatitis, insect bites, atopic dermatitis, skin infections by other microorganisms (such as fungi, bacteria, mites, or viruses), telangiectasia, psychological disorders, and and so on can also cause complaints as you are experiencing at this time.
To improve, we suggest that you first make the following efforts:
Take a diligent bath, then wear clean, soft clothes
When activities (especially on the ground), use the correct footwear
Cold compress your thigh that feels uncomfortable
Do not carelessly exchange any clothes or personal items with others
Drink lots and live a healthy lifestyle
Do not just carelessly take worm medicine without doctor's advice
If for more than 3 days your complaints do not improve, or if swelling, rashes, itching and heat appear very disturbing, you better go to see your doctor directly to the nearest doctor or dermatologist.
I hope this helps.
