Thank you for following up
The symptoms you are describing is likely to be strongyloidiasis, caused by paradites in the genus Strongyloides. These parasites enter the body through skin and travel to different parts of the body including lungs, eyes, intestines etc. You are at higher risk if your immunity is suppressed as in diabetic patients, HIV patients, those taking steroids etc.
In United States Strongyloides is rare (even though there are occurances) and you are at higher risk if you had travelled to any tropical countries.
Diagnosis is through stool microscopy looking for larvae and ELISA antibody testing.
Once confirmed, treatment is with Iveectin for 2 weeks, followed by rest period of a week and then restarting Icermectin for another 2 weeks. Then your stool need to be analyzed again for presence of larvae and if positive treatment need to repeated.
Please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider for further evaluation and management.
Hope this answers your question
