    Can a paladin be affected by a Spawn of Kyuss worm?

    I was just wondering if a paladin with Divine Health - giving him immunity to disease, including supernatural and magical - can be affected by a Spawn of Kyuss worm?

    I only ask as one of the ways to destroy the worm once it starts borrowing into your flesh is to cast remove disease (or remove curse).

    No idea about RAW/RAI, but I'd allow the Burrowing Worm to deal the 1 point of piercing damage caused by burrowing into any paladin to arrogant/foolish to not scrape it off themselves. On the worms next turn, I'd have it trying to escape the paladin's flesh, due to it being a hostile environment. I would have it make a DC 5 Dex check to escape, dealing another 1 point of piercing damage. On a failed save it deal the normal damage for being inside someone and then dies.
