Customer Question

Maybe.... For about a year now I've noticed a sweet yeasty smell that comes from my braw and underwear/pants. I've had all kids of othe problems like fatigued, weight gain forgetfulness, joint pain and hair loss, itchy skin/ears, little bumps with a clear puss that pops up from time to time. . I'm sure there's more I can't think of right now. O I also had a worm come out of my bum... I took an over the counter medicine for them. It seemed to make the itchy skin, ears, and bums go away for about a month or so but it seems to be coming back. I think I'm falling apart. :(

There is no effective over the counter medicine for parasites.

The medicine to use also depends on identification in the lab of the parasite.

3 stool samples are send.

Medications are based on findings.

See an internal medicine doctor as soon as you can.
