Sometimes their presence is unnoticed, since there are no significant changes or damage. Ancylostoma easy to hook if you walk barefoot on the ground. The infection is manifested as skin irritation, rash on the legs. The parasite may penetrate into the internal organs, and then acts like Ascarididae.

Toxocara person receives from cats or dogs. The eggs of these parasites, in adulthood, grow up to 30 centimeters, get together with animal feces in the soil. They may for many years remain viable. Then, through dirty hands or smeared with earth objects, parasites can enter the body that do not leave. Inside a person easily spreads to organs and systems.

Or Alveococcus Echinococcus multilocularis can be transmitted from animals. Another variation of infection is the use of dirty vegetables. Of particular danger are the larvae of these parasites via the blood vessels moving throughout the body. They can cause the formation of cysts:

  • in the brain;

  • in the lymphatic system;
  • in the kidneys.

Roundworms occur in humans more frequently than any other parasite. The source of infection serve as unwashed hands, dirty water, soil. Inside the human Ascaris can reach a length of about 40 centimeters, penetrating the liver, brain, capillaries, lungs, eyes, mucosa of the intestine. Food for Ascaris serve as nutrients required by the human body, red blood cells. The result of the presence of the parasite are:

  • problems with the digestive system;
  • allergies;
  • anemia;
  • if parasites can get into the lungs, skin, or respiratory tract – atopic dermatitis, bronchial asthma, seizures or arthritis;
  • some signs – fever, similar to colds.

Similar manifestations of tapeworm broad – it gets inside of humans through raw fish. The parasite can grow up to ten feet long, confused on the inside. When infected occur:

  6. Allergic reactions. The waste products of the parasites may cause reactions from the immune system, forced to produce more protective cells of eosinophils. A large number of them leads to inflammation, followed by an allergic reaction.
  7. Rashes on the skin. The presence of the worms will cause skin rashes, eczema, other problems. Parasites among protozoa cause damage on the skin.
  8. Anemia. Once in the intestine, the worms attach to the mucosa and live at the expense of nutrients of a person. Parasites such as Trichomonas, which feed on blood cells, can cause significant blood loss, causing anemia.
