The Worms Inside Your Face

Warning:The following video is really gross. Definitely NSWE (not safe while eating). But I made the mistake of watching it, and now I want to know what in the world it could be showing.

What happens is that you see a man's face getting scrubbed with a piece of cotton. And then tiny worms begin to ooze out of the man's pores.

The most sensible theory to be found in the YouTube comments (which I don't recommend reading) is that the video shows some kind of pseudo-medical treatment (for what, I can't imagine), in which worm eggs are smeared on the man's face with the cotton, and then the worms seem to emerge from the guy's skin. Sounds plausible. Any other theories?

Some kind of bizzare exfoliation treatment? Or maybe to remove all that acne scarring. And goodness knows what's smeared on the guy's face at the start there.

Damn it Alex. After you said not to I just had to go read the comments. I feel like I just wasted a whole minute of my life and now I hate the whole human race.

These are two different men being treated for parasites of some sort. Whatever is being swabbed onto their skin is causing the "worms" to exit. There are instances of consuming parasite contaminated fish and becoming infested with worms.

There is a type of 'fireworm' that lives in africa, that finds hosts in people because of the water they drink. Im guessing, he found treatment because he was in pain. Bot flies come to the surface because of lack of oxygen, maybe thats what the swab was doing, covering the pores on the guys skin so they'd come to the surface. I say its a real parasite, and the guy's unfortunate. Let's just wait until someone knows what they're called.

I don't think is using 'normal cutton with chemical'. Anyone can try with cockroaches and you will get this result.

It's told that the cockroaches would force the parasit out from the face, and I doubted it. I did the similiar way back to more than ten years ago.

its actual worms coming out of the pours. the doctor? probably used a strong lotion with alcohol or some acid to force the worms to the surface. this is just not an asian thing. just look at anyone you know with severe acne and they most likely have worms in the skin and inside the body.

I dont know what it is called, but I have read many articles about these. Its some sort of disease that has been popping up in the south Texas/Mexican boarder over the last 3-4 years. The really nasty thing is that you cant pull them out! Here is another one to look up that is coming from the same area... cysticercosis BRAIN WORMS!

they're worms from eating raw unfrozen/uncooked infected fish, like in sashimi. the worms themselves are anisakis or something.

Well i think that there litle zits, Well put it in this way, if you put a hair in warm water for several week =s it becomes a living thing. Same thing but as soon as you touch the acne it dies. Ex if you blow bubles and touch one it pops this is due to bacteria, now if you put a glove and touch it it wont pop.

I have studied parasitology and these are Enterobius Vermicularis, or "pinworm". It is an extremely common occurrence among children in day care centers. The eggs generally go in through the mouth of the host where they hatch and continue to thrive in the large intestine. The mother comes out to lay the eggs on the host's anus, which can cause extreme itching. This man might have picked them up on his fingers, scratched his nose, and the eggs hatched right on his face due to the hot climate, and unsanitary conditions. Having this happen is extremely rare, but you can get infestations in the sinus cavities.

well, I did try using cockroaches (small one, with no wing), the worm did come out from my face, because at that time I was told, those worm that cause me toothache. Later when I grown up, I talk to my brother who studied biology, so he told me that actually the cockroach's butt cointains a lot of this kind of worm, that you can not see when they are wet, so when the face dry, the worm begin to appear, so that worm maybe from the cockroaches itself,

this is actually a pretty common traditional treatment for people with sinus. this video is taped in malaysia, i would assume, since the guys were all speaking in malay (it's my mother tongue i should know). my guess is that the cotton ball that the dude rubbed on the face is soaked with some sort of herbal extract or something and that triggers those tiny worms to come out of the skin's pores.....but that's just my opinion. and no they aren't laughing at the guy in the vid. just laughing at their own lame-ass jokes lol

Unfortunately.Normal Mankind can not see Demodicids with their couple eyes.

In my idea,it should be some Anisakis

This is actually a treatment where they use the lipas tanah (earth roach), chop off the butt and squeeze the ooze on your face (usually its on ur nose) so that it heals certain illness for example the application on you nose is to cure sinus. I first heard of this at Melaka. The worms on the guys face are from the roach. This particular species actually carries worms inside its stomach. When rubbed on the guy

its must be propione acne bacteria,which are responsible for causing acne/pimples,will come out fr the open pores particularly in the nose area and swim through the oil all over the face.these bacteria cannot easily seen through the naked eyes otherwise the infected person will immediately try to remove them,as fast as possible.nevertheless,this is a common problem in an oily skin,which has to be addressed.the recommended routine will be to wash away the oil with the foam gel,and all bacteria on the surface skin will be removed as the bacteria on the surface skin need oil to function.the bacteria hidden in the deep recesses in the nose area,start to swim out from the open pores.As it is not practical to wash the face again and again,particularly for working executives,the xxx oil/bacteria control serum 1 and 2 have been formulated to control this problem.A concentrated formula with 20% active ingredients to control oil and remove Propione acne bacteria.

demodicids have no buttholes but have REALLY efficient metabolisms. they all eventually die of septic poisoning. this fact is how they can survive on our face, they are pretty non-comedigenic if you aren't already very oily.

One thing is for certain, you can't assume that anything anyone writes on the internet has any substance to it whatsoever. Maybe there's another thing you can be certain of - someone somewhere is going to believe something completely false and leave with crazy sheit in their head (which won't come out with roach butt swab).
Posted by certain  on  Fri Aug 07, 2009  at  07:37 PM
Yup, its real!

I've this done twice!

No, the cotton swab have nothing to do with the process. The person did this on me used only her bare hands and some small cockroaches.

Yes, it is somewhat plausible that the cockroach insides contain worm larvae to start with, but in my experience, it doesn't explain why only people with heavy sinusitis problems will expel more worms then the normal people. By the way, can larvae eggs be hatched just minutes after it was applied to the skin? I duno...

For Anisakis, humans are a dead end host. They simply cannot survive in the human body.

I hope this "clears" this up (no pun intended) Many of us have a common mite that lives in the follicles on our face, eyebrows, etc. For the most part they do no harm. The are extremely small and not visible by the naked eye but can be seen with a microscope. The video of the man with worms coming out of his skin are, in my opinion, fake. Here is the complete article for you to see and make up your own opinion...
Posted by Bill  on  Sat Feb 06, 2010  at  03:22 PM
A worm is called a parasite when it lives on a host, obviously not bacteria. And for the demodex... To rule this one out, yes it is definitely a parasite but not a worm.

Any other theories?

I work in the dental feild (I am not a dentist) and recently one of my patients complained of "worms" in her mouth. She went to the emergency room where she was placed under psychiatric evals, and released several hours later. She is adament that she has "white pieces" coming out of her gums, tongue and mouth. They move, and retract when vinegar is placed on them. She said she feels them moving at night. She now says they are coming out of her lips, and face. She was also referred to the Medical University and was told they have never heard anything like this. Is this a psychological issue? This woman really needs some guidance, and she does not have any clue where to start. Everywhere she has gone says they have never heard of such a thing.

If anyone has any clue as how to lead her to the right people PLEASE contact me.

Thank you!!

Those who were speaking of cockroaches seem to be the most correct in this case. Watching the video there are chunks of brown and white as the person applies the substance in question. The worms are there from the start, they brush them immediately. Many are just coiled up but you see the white puss spots from the first zoom in. Don't think too hard folks.

"worms eggs" being wiped on the face?

Are people so adamant in rejecting that in some areas, western science is inferior to eastern practices, that they would come up with such an outlandish Idea?

FIRST - find the sort of worm eggs that can hatch immediatly when you want them to - and come forward with the evidence before you advance that sort of conjecture!

Posted by Ray  on  Wed Jun 23, 2010  at  07:36 PM
what is the mix up to make that worm come out to our face..i am very-very disgusting with it....fuck it....please somebody..tell me!!!

Ive invested a ridiculously huge amount of time and effort to discover the truth behind this video.

The real mystery however is how easily most people are deceived.

It is no secret that this is a traditional Malaysian treatment for sinusitis. Or that a squashed native burrowing cockroach is being applied at the beginning.

For anyone who has gone this far the question is whether the worms are from the patient or the cockroach.

Of course the promoters of the treatment will tell you that they are being expelled from the skin due to a reaction to a chemical within the roach. This is false for several reasons. Firstly while there are many nematode infections that humans can be infected "NONE" present with these symptoms. Secondly there are several indicators during the footage exposing the fact that they were wiped on at the beginning. In fact if you look closely there is not one point where you can say definitively that the worms are burrowing from under the skin. If you think there is simply keep watching, they will flick below the surface tension of the roach slime just as surely as they appeared to explode from under it.

Insects on the other hand, especially cockroaches, are very vulnerable to nematode infections of this type. If this video teaches us anything it's to avoid being reincarnated as a cockroach.

In simple terms this is snake oil medicine at its best. As another stated, "don't be fooled"!

This video is for real. I have been going through a parsite cleanse with Oil of Oregano, Mineral salt baths and Artiminisim (not sure if spelling it corretly - chinese herb). I haven't screamed so much in my life! It's like somthing out of a horror movie. No more meat, dairy or fish for me (heavy parasites) - going veggitarian all the way.

Regarding the post of the woman patient with worms coming out of her mouth - it is true. Why the Western medical community denies and will not treat, I have no clue - other than the cures are relatively simple and inexpensive and do not support the pharma kings. Started happening to me while doing a parasite detox cleanse, and the larva, and my mother who is being treated for Lyme disease and co-infections has them as well, in her mouth rise, coming out her nose and ears. They are also coming out of my skin. You need to see a lyme literate or naturopathic dr. MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement) Google along with parasites, unrefined seasalt bath - take a bath and see what floats to the top! Also, oregano oil - do a fast and you will pass so many parasites that you will screem! Parasites are the cause of cancer, ms, parkinsons, brain tumors - the list goes on and on. . .

Check out the trailer to the documentary "under our skin" as well as Dr. Jemesek speaks the truth - top aids researcher who spoke out against the infectios disease board for diliberate manipulation and hiding of facts regarding Borellia bacteria. We have been duped big time by the Western Medical industry and pharmacutical companies. Parasites, fungus and co-infections - cancer, MS, parkinsons, alzhiemers. . .easily curable, yet they let people suffer with meds that don't work, refuse to acknowledge and treat. Just wait till it happens to you - probably arealdy is and you don't realize it. Any symptom you have - type in lyme - Borellia. Now after this documentary and people wising up, the FDA says there is this new super bug from India - Bullshit! It's Borellia - attaches to the DNA and passed on congenitally. Been here for thousands of years - and now resistant due to antibiotic use on our commerical beef, chickens, humans, pigs. . .

Why the worms can appear or formed in a few second?

Really human do have worms living in the skin?
It is believable if it is microorganism. But this organism is too obvious!

What type of art of devil they r using?

Why no body do such interesting research on it?

Stick to the topic, pls. Those examples do have distances for the comparison and contrast.

That's human arrogance, they think they already know everything, or can know everything ....

so we must be positive minded, we examine the evidence and research from various aspects, we define this new scam or real ....

for myself, hopefully this becomes an additional reference in my life, and hopefully this study showed evidence of continued and in fact to the world

There are no worms, this is a total scam. What they are wiping on the men's skin is the eggs of the worms which break when squished against the skin.
Posted by BIGRob  on  Sat Feb 26, 2011  at  11:28 PM
This is a real disease , and it is called subcutaneous Filariasis, it is from mosquito's and fly's, from a tropical warm region, that lay eggs and the worms from the eggs live under the skin , I found all this info in , if untreated can cause elaphantitus. the worms are called Filarial Nematodes and there are 8 different kinds , the one you see is the smaller baby worms.

This tape accurately shows worms emerging from the second man's face.
At 1:38 seconds his right eye comes into view. A worm is visible emerging from his tear duct UNDER THE SKIN! The eyelid is so thin, it easily shows the outline of the worm.
As you watch, you can see the left end of the worm, which seems to be exposed,as it moves in and out.
Now, at 3:00, the clinician is cleaning the face with a rag, and at one point is seen to vigorously scrub the area, but the worm wasn't dislodged.

All i can say is that the solution is a Dimethylsulfoxide acting as a solvent to dissolve Mebendazole as over the counter Anthlimetic(anti worm) that rubbed on the face or added to a moisturiser several times a day (Clogged pores realy whip worm (But end of a practical joke.) ISnt corruption Benign tumour's

just watched the video a while ago with my college's, what was those chemical or extract solution that can trigger those worms to come out, But with my college's they usual's using a extract that cleanse their face, but now that we saw this video they are asking what are those extract.?
