Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a parasite infection. Parasitic infections can usually be treated with anti-parasitic drugs. Albendazole or mebendazole have the common antiparasitic medications prescribed in the daily basis.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
