No fever, no one else has symptoms. Not the beach but river. Skin symptoms, they dig into my skin, i have red raised areas, i can pick them out with tweezers, in parts but they seem to go deeper and in line under the skin. They look kinda like a mite but also like a clear ūüźú, 3 part body, sharp cutting tail and it appears to have a set of eyey and a scisor type insicers four bitting. Those also are in the stool as well as a oblong blob w/ a rectangular beak, a few have spund around in the toilet water like they were swimming of fighting crowning?

Dear JA customer,
sorry to hear about your problems,
your symptoms are suggestive of a parasitic infection called cutaneous larva migrans.
almost all parasitic infections involving gut can be cured with antihelminthics ( for example albendazole). and always washing hands with soap and water before and after using rest room and before handling eatables. because this is easily transmitted through feco oral route.
what i suggest is following
go to your primary physician, get your stool checked for ova & parasite.
cbc for increased eosinophil count. and possibly albendazole prescription.
For immediately relieving peri anal itching, you can apply cotton soaked with oil in that area.
i hope this helps , if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
thanks
