I am writing as I found something in my mum's sputum (parasite or blood) that I cannot identify. I have images on a 1:1 ratio and also magnified. She had chronic diarrhea and dermatitis. She responded well to Niacin. Her diarrhea is only occasional now. She is anorexic, fatigued, and very frail. She refuses most meals and has food fads (at one point was only wanting ice cream). She is very restless and unable to sleep for long. She looks pale and a bit restless. She has no motivation. She is not reporting any abdominal pain. She is very flatulent.
We have to make sure all her food is very soft. She complains of things getting stuck between her teeth. She has not seen a dentist in decades. She seems to dab her saliva often, although her mouth looks dry. I asked her to rinse her mouth and spit again, but it did not elicit more of these things. Her breathing is normal. I wanted help identifying the organisms in her sputum.
History of medical conditions:
