Epidemiologically, it seems to be related to poor sewage conditions. There are a lot of less off people here who don't have proper facilities. i.e. they shit wherever.

That's kind of the reason they pass out the Praziquantel pills every year. 

Just a heads up for you folks who might go swimming in what looks like clear fresh water.

Well. I'm not a doctor. But it seems that skin blisters and severe abdominal pain are the major symptoms. One of those diseases that will live with you for a long time before you get the serious complications.

Below is a screenshot i found of a Philippine Dept of Health advisory publication that lists all infectious deseases throughout the Philippines which are quite wide ranging.

So i just copied the relevent item. This issue is somewhat similar to infected fish caught offshore around CARCAR. I was warned by a local Filipino to be very careful but cant remember the actual species... 034f95ba2a8dfd0b45567700d0fa3497.jpg
