I saw something similar to this on the discovery channel.  I don't remember what the insect was or the country that it came from but it entered the body and laid it's eggs and then they were expelled when hatching.  You might try searching the center for disease control website.

My father has the same symtoms as you do.  We took him to the hospital last night.  He's still there.  If I find out anything I'll post his results.

I'll pray for you all.

To the person who complains of black dots all over:

It is clear to me that you are suffering from a disease called Morgellon's.  Your symptoms are exactly those of many people who have this condition.  Doctors are in denial about it, but you can find lots of help by simply entering the word Morgellons on the net.  Hope that helps and good luck

I believe you are suffering from an evolved form of the cotton nematode.

I currently live in San Antonio, TX and have expertise in identifying insects, many types of spiders, and other arthropod critters that infest lawns, ornamentals, structures, trees, pets and livestock. Mites are not a strong point of mine. I'm not a licensed doctor, so I cannot provide medical diagnosis of conditions possibly related to insects or other arthropods. If you've got an interesting photo for me to see, attach it to your question, or let me know and I'll give you my email so the picture will get to me. If you have hosted an insect photo on a website, please include the link so I can go look at it and provide a faster ID for you. You may also join my group page on Facebook and post your picture at www.facebook.com/groups/antmans.hill/.
