Catch the suspects: After a patient catches 2-3 of suspected bugs and puts them in a plastic urine container (and tighten the lid), the doctor can send them to the lab for "parasite identification." The lab will name the bugs and the doctor can decide the treatment. If the lab say "no parasites," then the problem is harder to treat because then the patient's illness is "believing she has bugs when there are no bugs."
