This is in response to your PM regarding topical remedies for worms & larva in your nose & sinuses.
How are you? I read the following post and was wondering what to use for the small parasites in my sinuses. They are small white/transparent worms. I got some oil of oregano today, applied some in my nostrils and was able to get 2 worms out. What can I do about parasites in my sinuses? Please help."
Remedies for worms & larva in the nose, sinuses, eyes, ears, & throat:
Parasites detest anything containing menthol, zinc, & sulfur. Check labels for high % of these ingredients in OTC products.
~ Vicks or mentholatum inside nose, over sinuses, throat, back of ears, & eyelids. Decongests larval nests in mucous membranes & eyes.
~ Anti-itch cream (any brand) w/diphenhydramine hydrochloride & zinc. Add Ivermectin suspension or paste. Apply inside nose & ears w/Q-tip.
~ DeLaCruz 10% Sulfur Ointment or Sulfur8 2% Medicated Ointment. Add Ivermectin suspension or paste. Apply inside nose & ears w/Q-tip. Check ethnic personal care dept at drugstores & Wal-Mart. Or order online from Walgreens & E-Bay.
~ Ivermectin paste or liquid suspension inside nose or ears. Apply w/Q-tip.
~ Nasal/sinus/allergy decongestant & antihistamine tablets. Any brand w/phenylephrine HCL, chlorpheniramine maleate HCL, diphenhydramine HCL, pseudophedrine sulfate, or loratadine. Sudafed/Suphedrine-PE Sinus & Allergy, Actifed Cold & Allergy, Benadryl-D Allergy & Sinus, Claritin-D 24Hr Allergy & Congestion, or store brand.
~ Menthol nasal decongestant spray. Best is 4-Way Menthol, mfgd by Novartis, w/1% phenylephrine hydrochloride (not the regular non-menthol formula). Comes in 1/2 oz & 1 oz spray bottle. Or Vicks Sinex w/.5% phenylephrine hydrochloride. Check drugstores & Wal-Mart.
~ Saline nasal spray. Add several drops of hydrogen peroxide. Irrigate nasal cavities & sinuses, twice daily, for larva & tiny worms. Also inside ears ~ tilt head to one side & let fizz for 1 minute.
~ Fine-grind sea or table salt. Soak cotton ball in warm water w/pinch of salt. Dab over eyelids & lashes. It's equivalent to pouring salt on snails to kill them. May burn but sure knocks the socks off the larva. (lol)
~ Allergy or redness-reliever eye drops (any brand).
~ Menthol or lemon & honey cough drops for larva & worms in throat & lungs.
Hope these treatment tips bring some relief for you!
