Guinea Worm (Dracunculus medinensis) is a parasitic worm that affects humans and other mammals

Choose from 9 items in our Guinea Worm Collection for your Wall Art and Photo Gifts

Guinea Worm (Dracunculus medinensis) is a parasitic worm that affects humans and other mammals, and is spread through contaminated water sources and enters the body through the skin. Symptoms of infection include painful swelling, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. In extreme cases, it can cause death due to organ failure or sepsis. Treatment involves removing the worm from the body by winding it around a stick or gauze strip over several days until it is completely removed. Prevention includes filtering drinking water with cloth filters, treating water with chemicals such as chlorine or boiling it before consumption. Education on hygiene practices can also help reduce transmission of this parasite. Guinea Worm has been eradicated in many countries due to improved access to clean drinking water and increased awareness about prevention methods; however, there are still some areas where this parasite remains endemic.
