      It depends on the parasite. A lot of the time, you’d be in pain, have a fever, and have diarrhea. It’s important to go to the doctor when you’re sick, since doctors can usually see the parasites’ eggs in patient’s poop. Thankfully, you’ll almost certainly not have any parasites in Ireland, though. 🙂
