Doctors Pls Help A Brother Out (picture Attached) by Shaiyz95(m): 10:31am On Jun 04, 2020
My elder brother has been struggling with this skin condition for a while now,since early January..he went for several lab tests and it all came out as filaria(they said it is because of change of water),he schools outside our state of residence...so he treated filaria repeatedly yet this skin condition persist...
It appears and disappears,it appears small like a pimple or rash but when scratched it rises and spreads and it appears all over his body (not the same time tho),it also shows on his head sometimes and very itchy...pls my people,anyone that has experienced this condition,doctors as well,pls help ...thanks

I am not a doctor, but if filaria worm was present, IVERMEKTIN tablets will kill the worms, along with their eggs and larvae. Normal Ivermektin dosage is 4 tablets for an adult, but that dosage can be increased up to four-fold, on the instructions of a doctor.

If I may ask, does this man frequent a river or swamp ? Those are the most likely places to get bitten by flies that are hosts of filaria eggs.

It looks kinda like your brother may have some type of allergy. Has he tried to change soaps, detergent, body cream since all of this started? Has he had an allergy test of some sort done? Next time you go see a doctor, I would throw the word "skin allergy" into the conversation somewhere to get the doctor thinking about that as well. grin
