Parasites are the living organisms that live inside other organism's bodies (hosts) for their survival. Some parasites do not cause any harm to their host while some cause sickness in the human body resulting in parasitic infection. Malaria is also a parasitic disease that affects many individuals. There are three types of organisms responsible for causing a parasitic infection that include protozoa (single-celled, and multiply inside the body), Helminths (multicelled, live outside the body like tapeworms), and Ectoparasites (multi-celled, live or feed off the skin like mites). Some common parasitic infection includes:
Bancroft's filariasis: It is caused by thread-like worms that live inside the lymphatic system of humans. The lymphatic system of the body consists of fluid and is responsible for fighting infections. This disease spreads from one person to person by mosquitoes. Common symptoms include fever, skin exfoliation. And high levels of eosinophils (white blood cells).
Loiasis: It is also called as 'African eye worm', which is an infectious parasitic disease that is transmitted to humans by the bite of Chrysops deerfly species. A person dealing with this disease may face itchy, non-painful swellings in their body. Sometimes, a person may see worms crawling under their skin or an eye worm.
River blindness: It is caused by a parasitic worm and is transmitted through repeated bites by black flies that live near the rivers and streams. If not treated, then it may even cause visual impairment and sometimes blindness.
Eosinophilic lung: This is a disease related to lung problems in which white blood cells in the body get increased. White blood cells are responsible for fighting allergic reactions and certain infections. Some of the symptoms of this disease include cough, chest pain, and tightness, increased mucus, rapid breathing, bloody mucus and shortness of breath.
