I have had a "Sand Worm" for the last three years. How can I get rid of it?
It started on my leg, and now it's situated on my head and face for the last year about. I have tried the freeze option, even bought my own bottle. deworming tablets; I have even tried the ones for dogs. Cutex, wax, doom... I have tried everything! It is now on the left side of my face, right next to my eye, and it looks like I have been in one hell of a fight! It is causing headaches and fever (I think it's the cause), and I don't believe that it's a Sand Worm anymore. Please help!

Hi there
Have you had it examined by the doctor yet? I suggest that you go for a consultation, I am also worried about the headaches and fever, so it is even more important that you go to your doctor. It might be something more serious. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
