My wife found this worm in her underwear this morning when she woke up. It wasnt attached to her or anything. About 4-5 inches long. Redish in color and slightly see through, meaning you could sort of see its organs.

We are in Puerto Lopez Ecuador.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you think it's possible to be a parasitic worm? if yes it could be an ascaris lumbricoides and in that case I would recommend your wife to go to a doctor because those worms can lead to bad symptoms. $\endgroup$ – рüффп Jul 6 at 21:32
  • $\begingroup$ Anyway whatever is the type of worm, I would consult a doctor in any case a parasit goes out of my body. $\endgroup$ – рüффп Jul 6 at 21:34
  • $\begingroup$ Oh for sure. We all got on parasite meds immediately. Definitely a parasite. Was just curious what type :) $\endgroup$ – Ryan Jul 7 at 22:19
  • $\begingroup$ See my first comment, the worm seems to be an ascaris lumbricoides but I am not specialist. It would be better if a specialist in parasitology can confirm or infirm this. $\endgroup$ – рüффп Jul 14 at 7:30
