Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

What symptoms are you having? What tests were done? What difficulty are you facing to get treatment from your doctor?

The problem here is doctors shy away from given me any kind of help or test when they cannot see what's going on inside my body. Plus it is been a dialogue with other eye doctors on your site if you could pull them up and read them.

Okay Dr. some kind of parasite that eating away at my body it gives off some kind of secretion that really itches and irritates my skin at the entrance swells up like a mosquito bite, it feels like gravel in my eyes, not in the inside of my butt around under the eyelid and I see a flash in the corner of my, I have done gobs of pus coming out of my, some days I wake up all blurry and one or both of my eyes. I have pain in the brain I cannot get the local doctors to do it CAT scan with dye injection, I showed my doctor yesterday a welt on my skin where the parasites went in to my body, that all he ordered was a topical ointment that is supposed to stop them from biting. These parasites have been in the corner of my and when they bite it really hurts and it is a frightening thought that every doctor in America has no training to deal with this! I have a printed copy of the parasite in question but I'm not articulate enough to be able to email it to you I took it from my personal microscope and I will tell you this it is not any kind of worm.

Can I check with them and get back to you on this?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

This is a basic test that should be done and will indicate an abnormality in the eosinophils (which is a type of white blood cell). Eosinophils may be increased in presence of a parasite infection and then your doctor can do a skin biopsy which will definitely show the presence of the parasite. Once a diagnosis is made this can be easily treated.

Take care.

As much as you might not like to hear this it sounds to me like you are not actually suffering from parasitic infections -- and this is why your doctors can't find them and none of your treatments are working -- but rather you suffer from a common psychiatric condition where you BELIEVE you have parasites.

Here is a very good article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:

http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/45/11/e131.full

This condition is very difficult to treat, as you might imagine.

I suggest you consult with a medical team well versed in helping patients such as yourself.

Does this make sense to you?

I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.
Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.
Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.

Thank you for those pictures.

There is nothing in those photographs that is consistent with any kind of parasite.

You have a psychiatric problem, not an infestation.

You need to see a psychiatrist as well as a psychologist for therapy.
