Dermatobiasis is treated by removing the larvae from the skin. For this, the lesion is first washed with disinfecting solutions (this may be furatsilin, potassium permanganate, etc.).
To make the larva easier to remove, a few drops of some sterile oil should be dripped into the hole - this will block the air to the parasite, which will force it to surface. In this case, it will be easily captured with a clamp or tweezers and pulled out. The cavity, freed from the larva, is treated with disinfectants and covered with an aseptic dressing.
Modern medicine recommends, before the procedure for removing the larvae, to perform treatment using the antiparasitic agent ivermectin. This is especially necessary if the patient has concomitant HIV infection.
Ivermectin should be consumed before meals, drinking plenty of medicine with water. Enough two-time intake of 1-2 doses of the drug with a 1-2-week interval between use. Upon completion of the treatment course, you must undergo a mandatory follow-up examination. Among the side effects of the drug: dizziness and drowsiness, worsening concentration, severe brain disorders, fainting, and general deterioration in health. Among the contra-indications of the drug is the period of pregnancy planning, bearing of the child, and also lactation; therapy with the use of medicinal herbs, medicines or dietary supplements; allergic reactions, weak immunity or the presence of asthma; when visiting regions with a high risk of infection with non-helminthic diseases.
