Worms and maggots under my skin

So i frequently have dreams where i find maggots, roundworms and horsehair worms under my skin.
Often I start by picking at a scab, or a freckle, and I’ll just pull one out and they start appearing everywhere om my body. They pour out of every mark om my body (freckles, scabs, scars, moles, some times even bruises too). Often they also start crawling out of my eyes, and from under my nails. In the dream I usually just try to brush and pull them off me and it gets more and more stressfull as the worms come in higher and higher numbers

Some times it’s spiders, but usually it’s worms. I don’t think the meaning changes since they still come in very large numbers... from my body... What does it mean? I’ve had these dreams for years.

I personally associate these creatures with disease and decay. I like worms and maggots less than I like spiders, although I don’t like spiders very much either. I can appreciate spiders in pictures, but I can’t with worms and maggots.

Hi there LadyMedusa :)

It seems like most dreams involving having something gross under your skin are to do with being stressed about feeling like you're hiding or repressing something negative. Maybe you have a secret you feel guilty about hiding, or you have feelings you are ashamed of. Another interpretation could be that you are stressed about your health.

Hope this helps :)

Yeah. That makes sense.
I’m very withdrawn and do often stress about thoughts or feelings I feel I shouldn’t have (that I don’t talk to with anyone), and I do sometimes stress about health concerns too.
