10 years old with continuous sneezing. A small tiny worm came out from nose. What could be the reason?

Hello Dr. Samuel Is it possible for a small slimy green thin worm to come out of your nose when you sneeze? My son that s 10yrs always sneezes a lot. He sneezes everyday of his life not ones but few times at a time. Last night we think he sneezed this worm out. because the arm he used to block the germs was a worm right on the spot where he blocked the sneeze YYYY@YYYY Please can you help. I am thinking of taking him to the dr to check. Thanks

Sneezing is probably due to allergy. Some of the worms can find their way into the lung and guts. They can cause allergic reaction. Need to have stool test and blood test to see if you have high Eosinophil count which may reflect allergy. short course of anti-worm medication could help. Hope this helps.
