Hello and welcome to HCM,

It is important for you to take anti-helminithic medication against tape worms.
These drugs are quite effective against the worms.
Tape worm infection is transmitted by feco-oral route.
Eating non-veg food especially beef and pork are associated with tape worm infection.
The rash, blisters under the breast, numbness are suggestive of viral infection .
The headaches and lack of energy can be manifestation of viral infection.

Consult your physician for clinical examination, relevant investigations, and management.

Thanks and take care
