10 Parasites that could be living inside you

  • LeishmaniaTransmitted by sandflies.  Can cause hideous and painful sores
  • Loa Loa:  The adult Loa loa filarial worm migrates throughout the subcutaneous tissues of humans, occasionally crossing into subconjunctival tissues of the eye where it can be easily observed.
