I am currently staying in a hostel studying , and since few months ago when I just moved in I have been spotting 1 (mostly 2) dried worms lying on the toilet floor . I never care that much because it didn't seem to be a serious case for me .
Until recently , when I just came back from my 3-weeks semester break , to my horror , there were about 10+ dried worms in my hostel toilet ! I was totally freaked out and I flushed them all away . Few days later my room mate and I spotted some LIVE worms ( about 1 1/2 inches long) crawling , and some baby worms as well . It was really freaky and disgusting .
I go back to my home every weekend , and so I ask my mom whether she saw any of the worms similar to those in my hostel's toilet , but she said no . I kind of think those worms are not from my stomach because I don't seem to suffer in any of the signs of parasite infestation .
And to solve the problem , we have been keeping the toilet as dry as possible ( because they die without water ) and also letting the sunlight in.
We have been pouring hot water all over the place but they still appear .
But what I am worried right now is that I might get infested by the worms when I am using the toilet even if the worms are not from me . I have heard that the worms can dig up ways from your feet and go all the way to your intestine , or that when their eggs get stuck on your skin they can eventually go into your bloodstream .........
ARGH I just can't bear with it some1 help meee
