Hello

No, there is no such worm that you would see everywhere.

You need to go have stool samples done, but I don't think you have worms.

There is a disorder called delusional parasitosis, when people think they have worms but do not.

There is no over the counter treatment that is going to be effective, even if you do have worms.

Go to your regular doctor and discuss this.

Have 3 stool samples sent to the lab.

You can not pass worms by hugging someone.

Hi

In that case you need to have your doctor confirm this and give you a prescription.

You can not get that here.

Let me know if you have further questions.
