Parasite Symptoms, Information & Causes


- - - - - - - - - - - - Back to Top - - - - - - - - - - - -

General Parasites / Worms Information
Parasites are organisms that are larger in size than bacteria that can invade the body and cause infection or other medical problems. The most common forms of parasites live in the gastrointestinal tract, but parasites can also invade other areas of the body, including the brain. The majority of Americans think parasites only affect people in underdeveloped countries, but research shows that most Americans have at least one type of worm parasite living in their bodies that they are unaware of.

The most common types of parasites are:

  • Roundworms, ascarids, hookworms - contagious intestinal parasites with the shape of an earthworm but smaller in size.
  • Pinworms - appear as short white threads of 1/3 inch length or shorter. This is the most common worm problem for young children.
  • Tapeworms - are from one inch to thirty feet in length and may live in the body for up to 25 years.
  • Protozoa, flukes - names for specific types of roundworms.

    Parasite infestations may be severe or mild and can be life threatening, especially for children. Parasites commonly lead to poor absorption of critical nutrients, which can cause anemia, growth problems and a weakened immune system. Parasites are often found in people with AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, candidiasis and many other disorders.

    Possible Causes of Parasites / Worms
    Parasites enter the body via the mouth, the skin and the bottom of the feet. Direct contact with the bodily fluids of a contaminated person can also spread parasites. Parasites can be found in contaminated soil, vegetables, meat, watercress and feces. Worm eggs or larvae are often ingested in partially or uncooked foods and they can become airborne.

    Possible Symptoms of Parasites / Worms
    Symptoms of parasites vary depending on the type and severity of infestation. The worms may go undetected for years with no apparent symptoms, but they may be seen in the stool. Other common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Weight loss and malnutrition can occur in extreme cases.

    Symptoms of specific parasite infestations follow:

  • Pinworms - may cause severe anal itching, insomnia and restlessness. These worms tend to migrate out through the anus at night to lay eggs.
  • Hookworms - may cause the soles of the feet to itch. Bloody spit from the mouth, fever, rash and loss of appetite are also possible.
  • Threadworms - may cause coughing, abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas and itchy red abrasions on the anus.
  • Tapeworms may cause weight loss, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Ascarids - may cause bloating, stomach pain, vomiting and shortness of breath.
  • Microscopic Roundworms - may cause trichinosis leading to muscle damage and complications of the cardio and neuro systems.

    Possible Lifestyle Changes for Parasites / Worms
    Do not eat undercooked meat, fish or poultry. Do not walk barefoot outside in public areas. Wash hands after playing with pets and farm animals. Avoid drinking stream water when camping. People traveling to developing countries should avoid drinking tap water, eating uncooked foods, foods purchased from street vendors, ice and fruits that cannot be peeled. Eat a healthy diet made up of primarily of fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water.
