Really. Struggled. working on this podcast… in fact I put it off and off editing it until I had to. I’m squeamish about two things in life. Vomit and wriggly things. Especially, wriggly things that live on you. BLERGH! After a rash of head lice and pin worms at Förskolas all over Stockholm we agreed to put together a basic guide to parasites for the Barnakuten podcast.


Dr James, literally relishing the idea of being able to use visuals in this episode, I declined. But, the good news is, is that all of the parasites commonly found in Sweden are 100% treatable. PHEW. In the episode we talk about the most common, and about some that aren’t necessarily labelled as parasites but actually are, like Ticks.
