      Although my response might not be as related, since I'm hosting human whipworm, not hookworm, for ulcerative colitis, I too went through (and am still to some extent) this immune system roller coaster.

      I inoculated 25 days ago, and over the past few weeks have had some brief flare-ups of various allergic responses, sore throat, stuffy nose, redness on my neck, nothing major, just abnormal. Why this is most bizarre is that I have almost no allergies normally, just the inflammatory bowel disease. Things have quieted down now though.

      Good luck!
