cyst all over my stomach

Jun 03, 2015 8:09 AM

I woke up two days ago with cyst all over over my body I am use to getting the cyst on my stomach and arms but not this many. Like I said, they are all over my body. This set, I had noticed first on my chest on stomach. I know that I always get them on my two arms, chest, and stomach But I did not know tha I would get them on my legs. They are only extremely painful in my arms. they are about a 8 in pain when they appear. They come every 8 or 9 days for about 2 or 3 days. Lidoderm helps the most. When it pops, three things come out of it that move around. Today they are still. I would say I have at least over 150 of them. and I would say that only a fourth of them have popped. According to my belief that I have a tapeworm. The wounds and cyst and the way they feel after they pop all are as descibed at the CDC, National institute of health (I think I read it there), and another univeristy medical joural. I almost described the wound word for word to my doctor about six months ago, way before I knew or read anything about it. I still have that email to show them.

I don't want to be mean to them but I wish I could give them my painful ones for like 5 minutes. They wouldn't just write me a prescription for lidoderm and send me on my way. They would investigate instead of just saying it is my imagination. Besides your imagination matching word for word up to facts you have never seen before, I don't see how that is possible. I must have the gift

Profiler, have you been to see a dermatologist? They specialize in skin and skin growths, so maybe making a trip to them and letting them actually biopsy several would let them know exactly what meds you'd need to get rid of these things permanently. 🙏🌼

Profiler, Flappsy has a good point. Although I understand that these are not necessarily skin issues, a dermatologist would probably be more likely to open some up and find out what the hell is inside of them. It is obvious you have a horrendous parasitic infection. I mean, these lumps are popping and there are things moving under your skin, hence something living is "hatching" from these lumps. I can't even imagine how painful they are. Has the doctor given you any courses of Ivermectin which is a de-wormer that is actually used in dogs and horses but it is also used in humans with certain parasites. It is just made up of a slightly different compound but the ivermectin kills them. It would be interesting to see if that would get rid of them once and for all
