Medical Definition of Creeping eruption

1. Also called creeping eruption. This condition results from infection of the human skin by the larvae of the dog and cat hookworm, A. Brasiliense. The result is a red, raised, tunnel on the surface of the skin. Severe itching is common. Beaches and other moist sandy areas are common locations for infection. Thiabendazole is the drug of choice.
