shoes. and socks. being australian, i live in flip flops. big mistake in the dry season. the worms hide in the dirt, jump onto your toes, drill a hole, deposit the egg sag.
although it starts of very small. like i said, they cut open my toe the first day or so after I got it then nothing. then my skin healed over really thickly and the egg sacs somehow completely anaesthatized the area. it was when i banged my toe on the concrete and couldn't feel ANYTHING, that i thought something might be up.
i still wear flip flops but apparently the worms only come in the other Congo.
i am never going there again.
