Diseases You Can't Imagine


Guinea worm


It’s very painful…especially during the rainy season…I can’t sleep. I was about 13 when I got it. It starts with a wound…the wound breaks and pus comes out and then the worm will stick its head out and you get hold of it, tie it on a stick and roll it. You cannot pull it. It comes out gradually.”
