This section discusses the common signs of the presence of parasites in the human body and described how their presence affects the skin.
- troubled skin
- syndrome gastric and intestinal discomfort
- bile stasis
- reduced immunity
- pain in joints and muscles
- the change in body weight
- nervousness, sleep disturbance
- "chronic fatigue syndrome"
Parasites can disrupt the normal permeability of the mucosa alvum, which increases the risk of the ingress of large nezapravlenny food particles. It activates the body's immune response — increased level of eosinophils — protective blood cells in our body that promote allergic reactions.
Parasites cause increased the body's production of immunoglobulin E, which increases allergic reactions.
Askaridy allergen is the most powerful of allergens parasitica origin. It causes a reaction in the lungs, the skin, conjunctiva, in the gastrointestinal tract.
In addition, provoke an allergic reaction with their presence pinworms, Toxocara, the species Trichinella, hookworm, Strongyloides, opisthorchis, paragonimus, Fasciola, Giardia, Candida, etc.
Intestinal parasites can cause skin reactions of allergic nature of atopic dermatitis, urticaria, eczema. Most inflammatory changes on the skin can be the result of the presence of protozoa (Giardia, fungi) and opisthorchis.
Cutaneous paragonimoz proceeds with the formation of dense knots (or even several of them containing worms and their eggs) in the subcutaneous tissue of the neck, thorax, abdomen. Nodes of different sizes, a little painful on palpation. The skin over the nodes is not usually changed.
In addition, the result of their life the parasites secrete a huge amount of toxinsthat affected their intestines and the liver to bring not. And then enter strenuously excretory function of the skin that is manifested by a variety of inflammatory elements (acne). In this case, no expensive and fashionable cosmetics will not solve Your problem! You need to eliminate the root cause of parasites.
Syndrome gastric and intestinal discomfort
Parasites (hookworm, Strongyloides, etc.) residing in the upper small intestine, causing inflammation and lead to the disruption of the alvum, tumor. This leads to a reduction in the absorption of nutrients. As a result, the fats that should be absorbed in the small intestine, into the colon, causing cramping, alternating constipation and diarrhea.
The larvae opisthorchis and fascial, and then adults, infested people are manifested in:
- the bile ducts,
- the gallbladder,
Usually when the syndrome of gastric and intestinal discomfort expressed:
- pain in the epigastric region (stomach, duodenum, small intestines — gastritis, gastroduodenitis, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer and t.. d),
- pain in the left podreberie (pancreas — pancreatitis),
- pain in the right podreberie (disorders of the liver, gallbladder and biliary tract — hepatitis, cholecystitis,etc.)
- duodenitis with nausea and dyspepsia,
- loss of appetite,
- diarrhea (diarrhea), or, conversely, constipation,
- flatulence (tumor alvum),
- intestinal and biliary colic,
- hemorrhages in internal organs (ulcerative colitis, erosive gastritis, etc.).
Any disorders in the gastrointestinal tract and bile system will inevitably affect the skin:
- various rashes (acne and pimples),
- increased pigmentation (especially in disorders of the liver),
- sagging skin and increased wrinkles,
- dryness and siccitatibus conveniunt skin (with pancreatitis and frequent diarrhea),
- dull or sallow complexion, etc.
Other types of parasites, due to its shape, large size and large number, can mechanically close the ducts of the biliary tract, which can cause blockage of the common bile duct that leads to difficult bile outflow obstructive jaundice.
From the gastrointestinal tract roundworm can creep into the bile ducts, and liver. During their migration the larvae of Toxocara, once in the blood stream can settle in the liver.
opisthorchis immediately after their migration into the liver and bile duct and can lead to serious complications: peritonitis gall, an apostema of the liver, liver cirrhosis and primary liver cancer.
Young Fasciola in the small intestine injure the mucous membrane, penetrate into the capillaries and then through the portal vein into the liver.
Using regular chlorinated water from the tap every time we hirundo 5-7 Giardia cysts. If the stomach is working properly, gastric juice containing hydrochloric acid will destroy their shell and they will die. If not, then they penetrate the liver. When in normal bile they "washed out" of the liver and bile ducts. If the bile is disturbed, it is formed like "the swamp", which is a favorable environment for their reproduction.
The slightest violation of the liver, gall bladder and biliary tract which inevitably leads to skin problems (because the toxins begin to excreted through the skin!):
- deteriorating complexion,
- the skin becomes flabby,
- there are various of inflammation (acne, pimples),
- are formed dark spots and freckles.
Some worms, thanks to its shape and large size, can mechanically close the intestinal lumen, which leads to deterioration of peristalsis, the formation of constipation, complete or partial obstruction.
The corpses of people who died from intestinal obstruction, pathologists usually find a ball of ascarids. They cause obstruction of the intestine, and, consequently, the death of a man.
In addition, continual constipation will inevitably affect the condition of the skin:
- dull sallow complexion,
- various rashes in the form of acne or pimples
- sagging skin, etc.
A number of parasites, particularly protozoan (Giardia) produce substances like prostaglandins, which lead to the loss of body sodium and chloride, which in turn causes diarrhoea (diarrhea) — frequent watery bowel movements. Thus, the body tries to get rid of uninvited guests!
Persistent diarrhea, in turn, lead to dehydration and dysbiosis.
All of this is necessarily reflected on the skin:
- dryness and siccitatibus conveniunt skin
- laxity and sagging skin
- unhealthy complexion, etc.
Persistent diarrhea that occurs due to the presence of intestinal parasites, lead to dehydration and dysbiosis. Such dysbacteriosis cannot be resolved only with the help of probiotics and prebiotics, until that time, until you find and eliminate the main reason for intestinal parasites (pinworm, roundworm, etc.).
Intestinal form of giardiasis is also observed severe dysbiosis.
If disrupted intestinal microflora is disrupted and microflora throughout the body. Especially vividly it is observed in women: intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and vaginal dysbiosis always present at the same time.
The same is observed with respect to the skin.
If the normal microflora is not enough, begins to develop pathogen: fungus (Candida), staphylococci, streptococci, etc.
dysbacteriosis cause allergic reactions, which are particularly pronounced on the skin and decrease of immunity.
The constant response of the immune system to the presence of parasites in the body, draining it. Decreased production of immunoglobulin A And the body becomes vulnerable to any viral and bacterial infections.
Therefore, usually, the infested people were recorded incessant colds. Often develop various inflammatory processes.
Pain in joints and muscles
Parasites can navigate the human body with the aim of settling in the most convenient places, such as joint fluid and muscle. Tissue inflammation is the result of injury to their parasites or immune response of the body to their presence. While people experiencing muscle and joint pain.
For example, the species Trichinella larvae settle in striated muscles.
Acute opisthorchiasis in the initial stage is characterized by dolore in the muscles and joints.
The change in body weight
The swing weight (like more than normal, so less) can be the consequence parasitica disease. The weight reduction is caused because the body is disrupted digestion, as there is a "domestic consumer". Obesity is also a consequence of the "robbery" of the human body helminthic invasion. Hunger occurs when a sudden drop in blood sugar levels due to the activities of the worms, their toxic effects on the body.
Many types of intestinal worms (pinworms, hookworms, etc.), prikazivati to the intestinal wall, damaging it and causing a large enough loss of blood that leads to anemia.
In children and pregnant women fascioliasis may be complicated by severe anemia.
In enterobiasis (pinworms) in children significantly reduced the level of copper, zinc and magnesium in the blood
Roundworms absorb pyridoxine (vitamin B6), retinol (vitamin a) and ascorbic acid (vitamin C), which affects the state of immunity, the metabolism.
The lack of vitamins and minerals in the body leads to premature aging of the entire organism and skin in particular.
Nervousness, sleep disturbance
Toxic substances of the vital activity of parasites (hookworm, Strongyloides) can irritate the Central nervous system, causing increased anxiety and nervousness. Frequent awakening during the night, particularly between 2 and 3 hours, is also a result of attempts of the body to get rid of toxic substances through the liver.
When Your children began to do poorly in school, become irritable and nervous, bad (restless) sleep, and You often hear the gnashing of their teeth at night — be sure to check them for the presence of parasites in the body, particularly pinworms!
During the migration of Toxocara larvae in the brain revealed signs of Central nervous system in different neurological disorders, which manifest themselves in behavior change:
- difficulty with reading,
- impaired attention.
opistorhoze invasion leads to disruption of the nervous system, and in some cases, patients diagnosed with neurocirculatory dystonia and vegetative neurosis (vegetovascular dystonia).
Constant sleep deprivation and repeated stress affected the body and skin, this all only reflects:
- a bad complexion,
- the emergence of a large number of wrinkles,
- the increased pigmentation,
- the increase in skin rash, etc.
"Chronic fatigue syndrome"
"Chronic fatigue syndrome" manifests itself:
- causeless cuts and increases in body temperature,
- emotional instability,
- apathy and loss of interest in life,
- loss of concentration
- bad memory
These symptoms may be the result of anemia, intoxication, lack of nutrients in the body caused by parasites (pinworms, hookworm cum).
In opisthorchiasis asthenic syndrome is manifested in complaints of rapid physical and mental fatigue, General weakness.
Clusters of parasites or their eggs form a tumor and cysts.
When in toxocariasis are often formed of numerous granulomas in any organ and tissue:
- in the liver,
- in myocardium,
- lymph nodes,
- the brain.
In the center of the granuloma appears a zone of necrosis that destroys the on.
To serious complications opisthorchiasis include: liver cancer and pancreatic cancer.
Finding yourself or Your family members for the presence of several symptoms, be sure to walk on the diagnosis of parasitosis and guide courses of de-worming of all family members.
