  • A Lump Moving Across a Woman's Face Was a Parasitic Worm Crawling Under Her Skin

A thirty-two years old Russian woman who experienced characteristically moving and itchy lumps on the face was diagnosed with a shocking condition.

The bump was first noticed underneath her left eye, before it moved above it.

The woman reported she had recently travelled to a rural area in Moscow where she was frequently bitten by mosquitoes. According to the report, the parasite can be found in dogs and other carnivores. Further, the worm made its way up to the woman's upper lip in the next ten days.

Fortunately, the worm is not found in the USA however there are other creepy crawlies lurking about to be concerned about.

Indeed, the Russian woman had the worm removed and made a full recovery, the report said.

The parasite, which was removed surgically, was a Dirofilaria repens.

However, luckily, these worms can nearly never reproduce in humans, and all symptoms usually disappear quickly if the worm is removed - so if you've noticed any odd lumps moving around your body after a mosquito bite, you should probably get to a doctor.

If a human is infected by, the typical symptoms are itching, burning, and some swelling around the area of what is called the "nodule".

The CDC states that D. repens - the species the woman in Russian Federation had - are not seen in the United States; another species, D. tenuis, has been reported in North America, but only in raccoons.

This specific parasite is not found in the U.S., but can be found in Europe.

Once under a human's skin, the worm, which is spread by mosquito bites, can not breed.

Doctors determined that the wandering wart was actually a marauding parasite, likely transmitted by a mosquito bite on her trip. She didn't pay attention to it, at first, but she started posting pictures of the bump of her social media channel just in case.
