parasites from the human body

To make it a little easier to deal with these parasites, people have delved into their research. There are several types of worms with similar characteristics and external data.

The first category includes roundworms. The latter combines flatworms, which include tapeworms and tapeworms.

Worms are:

  • Contact;
  • Biological anthelmintic;
  • Cordyceps earth.

This classification depends on how they are introduced into the body and where they are distributed.

Biological worms

These are beef and pork tapeworms, echtnococci, cestodes and tapeworms. To complete their life cycle, these parasites need to change several hosts. They can infect insects, mollusks, crustaceans, fish and humans, eventually becoming carriers of helminths.


These parasites include:

  • Roundworm;
  • Vlasoglava;
  • Hookworms;
  • Killer;

Such parasites do not need an intermediate host for normal development.


This group includes pinworms, from which people get sick from intestinal infections, and dwarf tapeworms, which cause hypohidrosis.

Where do worms settle in humans?

Most adult worms settle in the colon. Pinworms and whipworms also find shelter there. In the liver are often observed clonorchis, oporchis, large liver fluke. They are all species of flukes.
