Hi,
Thanks for your question.
I do understand your pain and discomfort.
As per your history is concerned you can try like this:-
1)DEC course 6mg/kg/day ,you can take 2 times per day by dividing it by 2 for 20 days and repeat after 3 months interval
2)Take ALODY PLUS which contains[Ivermectin +albendazole] once a month as single dose
3)Take AVIDOX -LB 100 mg once a day for 6 weeks which contains doxycycline .
Every month check your blood DC.

I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to write to me.
Wishing you all the best.
