Cutaneous larva migrans

(Science: dermatology, microbiology) also called creeping eruption. This condition results from infection of the human skin by the larvae of the dog and cat hookworm, a. Brasiliense. The result is a red, raised, tunnel on the surface of the skin. Severe itching is common. Beaches and other moist sandy areas are common locations for infection. Thiabendazole is the drug of choice.
