  • I am pretty sure only people with really weak immune systems could get those...

  • My daughter had it when she was young. Her immune system was fine. Her grandmother told us to burn newa paper and put it on the spot. It look like it worked.

  • TAPEWORMS are in your intestines. There is no way a burned newspaper will help. You need to see a Doctor. This is not a "do it yourself" project. It is dangerous.

  • I don't know of anyone who has ever had it, but I doubt people would tell everyone if they did........ So, who knows? I would get it checked out asap if you think you might have it.
