I am going mad with this crawling sensation!
For the last 2 months I have felt a crawling and itchy sensation all over my body. My head, legs etc. but cannot see a thing. My partner does not get them as much.
I have moved out of the house as it seems they are all over the place. The place was sprayed and bombed - worked for a day. We then moved to a hotel for the short term. The place was infected. The car now has them. All being sprayed again.
I was scratching my leg and think I was able to pick one out of my leg hair where the hair meets the skin. Seems as if they dug in. Was so small, like a speck of dust/dirt white pepper colour and about the same size
I bought new clothes. Today I put on some clothes that were in the cupboard and I started itching like crazy.
The dog is also scratching non stop (she is female).
Tea tree oil seems to help, but not eradicate.
I'm glad to hear that you are using the Tea Tree oil because it is anti-parasitic and is often helpful for external parasites.
You haven't seen any bugs apart from that one speck you saw? Can you see anything on your dog? Do you have a rash or anything (apart from marks from scratching)?
You said your partner does not get them as much. Is he getting them at all? It wouldn't be unusual for you both to be experiencing the same thing if you are intimate. Parasites are much more contagious than people realize.
However, sometimes one person is affected and the other doesn't seem to be bothered. The difference may be something as simple as the strength of the immune system.
Believe it or not, a crawling sensation on the skin can sometimes be from internal parasites rather than external parasites. That's why I asked if you are actually seeing any bugs.
Have you ruled out fleas? Bed bugs? Sand flies? These are all visible to the naked eye.
If you are being as careful as you can about re-infestation and cleanliness of bedding, clothes, linens, etc., and you are still having troubles that seem to follow you around, I suspect the problem may be internal.
If that is the case, you'll need to give yourself an internal cleanse. I always recommend Herbal Fiberblend
as a good natural herb intestinal cleanse. You just mix it in water or juice twice per day for several weeks (I'd suggest 3 months for a thorough cleanse).
You'll probably notice a difference within days, although some people get a little worse before they get better or have good days and bad days as the body goes the process of eliminating parasites and toxins. That's normal when detoxifying the body.
You should also get some good probiotics to build up the good bacteria in your body. This helps to fight against any parasite, fungus, or bacteria that may be lurking in your system and giving you this grief. A good combination of probiotics is Florafood
which will help to build up your immune system.
If your partner is experiencing any of the symptoms, he should also cleanse and build along with you so that you don't keep passing it back and forth.
Do you like garlic? Try to eat it more often as it will probably help too.
You can rinse your hair with some organic apple cider vinegar (dilute it with water if you like) to help the itching on your scalp.
Raw, organic apple cider vinegar is also safe to be used in a spray bottle (diluted if you prefer) to spray on your dog to help her itching and soothe her skin. You can even add a teaspoon to her water bowl each day to improve her resistance to parasites (internal and external).
Since you are in Australia, you can order the HFB and Florafood using the Australia order form
and get free shipping on your first order.
If you decide to commit yourself (and your partner) to a full 3 month cleanse, order the 6-pack of Herbal Fiberblend which would be enough for 2 average-sized adults for 3 months.
The organic apple cider vinegar can usually be found at a local health food store in your area.
If you have any questions, feel free to phone me. My number is on the order page. To your good health!
P.S. Please realize that I am not saying you definitely have internal parasites. I can't "diagnose" you. :) I'm just suggesting it as a real possibility for you to consider. There certainly could be some other explanation for your reactions.
