And the second way is characteristic for schistosomes in the human body worms enter through the pores on his skin. Someone this fact may seem incredible, but many years of experience working in Africa and Portuguese, Brazilian doctors confirmed that even walking on water barefoot, in most cases, ends with the infection.
In places of penetration of schistosomes the skin is inflamed. On the hands, feet (and quite often on the back and stomach) person to have reddish dots, reminiscent of allergic rashes.
