Strongyloides (threadworm)

Strongyloides, also called threadworm, is a type of roundworm that can infect the gut. People get infected when larva penetrate their skin, primarily through their feet (walking barefoot).

The larva first make a pulmonary migration via the bloodstream and lymphatics where they are eventually coughed up and swallowed, allowing them to make their home in the gut. Larva can also be found in connective tissue and organs. A new batch can reinfect, so once they get a stronghold they can multiply like crazy.

Strongyloides can cause abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, gastrointestinal bleeding, colitis and is tied to meningitis, pneumonia, respiratory failure, gram negative bacteria, food and seasonal allergies, and headaches and migraines.

Strongyloides tends to have co infections like other intestinal parasites, mold and nocardia.
