Highly contagious skin parasites
There are a couple skin parasites which are quite bad and if a person ends up infected with one, he or she will have lots of problems. The ways of how a person can end up with one of these parasites are plenty. Trying on clothing and sitting in a chair are only some of them. The person who is already infected only needs to be in contact with some item like a chair or clothing for several minutes and the parasite will lay eggs there.
In these cases the doctor will usually prescribe Lindane or Elimite. However, neither of these medications have lasting effect on the parasites. A good thing to do is to have a hot bath three times per day. That will provide short term relief. The worst thing is that when a person becomes infected all of his belongings will most likely carry the parasites.
In case of a Strongyloides stercoralis there is a blood antibody test that can identify it. However, even though the doctors can discover it there is still no treatment which can cure it. Because of this a lot of people seek help on the internet.
Some people who have been infected claim that the intake of specific food can starve the parasites while the intake of other foods can feed them.
