I have 2-3 scars around my right ankle, please suggest me the remedy for it

I am 17 years old, and weigh between 150-160 lbs. i have 2-3 scars around my right ankle. before they were scars, they were "tunnels" in my skin. that was about 6-7 years ago. i do not gain weight, no matter what or how much i eat. my cardio is not as good as it should be according to my body shape and size. i get tired quickly/easily. i think that there could be species of worms and/or parasites living inside of me. what do i do about this issue? --more: i havent had a hallucination about this, nor do i eat unhealthy foods. my diet contains fruit, fully cooked meats, rices and vegetables, not a lot of sugary foods, but i do not regulate my calorie intake. i am sorry if this issue does not seem realistic, but the subject/title was my theory as to what's wrong with me. please help, to anyone who replies, and please try to be polite when posting, as this is a real issue i am having.

You must see a dermatologist.I remember you had posted a similar matter a couple of days ago. If you can get hold of Discovery Channel videos in archive, you must see a program about how insects can get inside your body through wounds and scars.I hope I am being polite.This is not a normal case so you may want to go to a state run medical institution rather than a private set up.

you should work on healthy diet i think... and at the same time focus on proper excercise and workout.

Thank you Evan. I describe my problem to the community, so I may be able to retrieve some theory of what may be wrong with me. I am not stating that there is something inside me, as I am not a doctor or physician, but I am open to any responses explaining what could be wrong. Once again Anonymous, it is not my diet. I rarely eat foods that are high in sugars, and I try to eat as healthy as I can. I took a health class in high school, which means that I would know if my diet was the cause. Thanks anyway for the response.

An addition to the scar section of my post. There was another case in the camp i was in. There was an obese child that has one of the same circular cuts ("tunnel") on his stomach, around his belly button. One of the camp councilors stuck a peroxide-dipped, one-sided q-tip in it (somewhat primitive). It went in pretty far. Whatever caused it (spider, parasite, worm, etc.), somehow went undetected at the camp. Just in case people in the forum needed to know whether or not i was the only case.

I have a staph infection where the scar and metal screws and plate were used to repair ankle fracture 9 years ago. After 9 weeks on 2 different antibiotics and 8 weeks on crutches it is much better, but still not completely gone. What else should be done to get completely rid of this infection. It still hurts there a little but nowhere close to the burning and soreness before antibiotics (which I am still on). There was a large scab/sore but it is nearly gone now.
