Working my way through college, I was an orderly for a while, then a med tech. Back in the early 60’s I recall vividly watching a old lady sneeze a couple of worms out her nose. The scuttlebutt with this was that it (Strongyloides) was then usually associated with rural elderly farmer-people, and not necessarily the “poor.” BTW, I don’t think it’s significantly more prevalent now.

Nasty little critters they are, I don't think you can ever really rid your body of them.
