Krimiroga (क्रिमिरोग) or simply Krimi refers to “worms and bacilli” according to the fifth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 12). Accordingly, “those people are generally the victims of worms (krimi) who take their meals before the previous meals are properly digested, eat too much of sweets, sours, puddings, and molasses, avoid physical exercise, sleep in day time, and eat articles of foodstuff, incongenial by combination.—Worms (krimi) are of two different kinds, viz. internal and external. They are also subdivided into four different kinds, according to the place of their origin, viz., external dirt, phlegm, blood, and stool. They are altogether of twenty different kinds”.
