It depends on what you mean by parasites. Viruses and bacteria often infect these areas. Many types of bacteria naturally live here as well and may not cause any disease. Fungi are less common but may also cause an infection. If you are referring to multicellular organisms like parasitic “worms” then there a few nasal worms which are not commonly seen. Sometimes patients confuse long stringy mucus and even fibrous tissue that develops in the nasal lining with chronic inflammation for worms. Speak to your doctor about it.

You may be talking about worms like Mammomonogamus nasicola. It is not commonly seen in the US and only a few reported cases of human infestation have been noted in South Asia. You may also want to look up parasites like Linguatula serrata which can use any mammal as a host. It is important to speak to your local doctor directly about your concerns and questions. The epidemiology varies by your location so what may be prevalent or at least relevant in one area may not be so in another.
