Little Bug Burrows Under The Skin

What little bug burrows under the skin?

What little bug burrows under the skin?

A tiny little bug with a snout digs into my mom's skin, and we don't know what it is.


It's slightly larger than a flea. The tiny bug burrows under the skin and stays there.


She has these bites all over her. At first I thought she was scratching herself, but then she
caught one to show me. Now, I'm very concerned.


Any help as to what they are or a remedy would be great. Also, I should mention that they seem to get her while she is sleeping.


Thanks so much,
Concerned Daughter








Dear Concerned Daughter,

When you say the tiny bug burrows under the skin, do you mean it just stays in that one spot under the skin, or does it travel, leaving a mark or track in it's wake?


Does it cause the skin to itch or have any other reaction?


I assume that it probably DOES itch because you mentioned that you initially thought she was just scratching herself.


Have you been able to rule out anything specific? Bed bugs? Scabies? Ticks?


Bedbugs do bite you like crazy while you are sleeping. However, I don't believe there is any evidence that they burrow under the skin. They aren't known to burrow under the skin and stay there.


On the other hand, the scabies mite DOES burrow and leaves very itchy rash-like trails over your body.


You said she has them all over. If it were ticks, there may be a few, but not likely dozens. They generally only burrow their head in the skin and fill up the exposed body by sucking your blood.


Based on your description, my best guess would be the bed bugs. Are you positive that they DO burrow, or are you just assuming that they do because you can't see them?


It would be a good idea for your mom to get some quality tea tree oil, or Indian neem oil, or even oregano oil and place several drops (10-20) in her bath water for a nice soak a couple times per day.



You can find good prices on essential oils like those at Puritan's Pride.



This will serve to help soothe the skin, but also to help eliminate the skin parasite if it is scabies or something similar.


If it's bed bugs, you'll really have a fight on your hands. Anyone can get bed bugs, so don't think it's a sign of being dirty or anything.


You'd be amazed at how many hotels are actually infested with bed bugs. It's easy enough for the bed bugs to hitch a ride home with you in your luggage or even on your clothes.


To get rid of them, you'll have to do a lot of washing in hot water and vacuuming every nook and cranny.


Even then, you may need to use some form of cleaning agent. Here are some suggestions for all natural pest control rather than a chemical based pesticide.


Finally, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I must encourage you to get your mom to follow a natural internal cleansing protocol. It is the surest way that I know of for dealing with persistent pest/bug/parasite issues, whether the little bug burrows under the skin or just feels like it.



That combo is a tried and proven method for getting the best results while cleansing and building your system.


If you'd like to provide me with a bit more specific information about how this tiny bug burrows under the skin, etc., I'll try to provide you with more details and suggestions.


Meanwhile, I hope your mom gets some relief soon.

What happened to your mom?
by: jeanne

Hi,
Just finished reading this section about the young lady who wrote in about her mother having a "bug" burrowed in the skin with rash like bites. Just wondering what happened to her? Did she find out if it was bed bugs or scabies or something else? When was this article written? I'm doing some research on bed bugs and wanting to find out if they can hitch a ride on human skin, like "burrow" itself into the skin or just "hitching a ride on the skin by "cligging" on? Any info would be greatly helpful.

Thank you.

Parasites under the skin
by: Itchy

I have them on a very personal place. They are under the skin and most are attached to a small vein sucking blood for nourishment. I have been to my HMO and the Doctors there do not know "jack" about parasites or blood disorders from them.

These creatures get as big as a large grain of rice. Kind of like the size you would find in a can of chicken rice soup. They have some form of breathing apparatus or something starts to stick out that is black or very dark grey when they mature. I used lice ointment and left it on for 10 minutes. The largest ones died and then became infected in a couple of days. Then all hell broke loose! I got sick, very sick. High Uric Acid count in my blood. High Sediment rate test showed up for an infection. My HMO still just blows me off and says I have gout. I have become a vegetarian and no drinking of beer or yeasty products and the symptoms are still there.

The only thing that sort of works is "Tea Tree Oil", you can get it cheap at WalMart Pharmacy, just ask. It will burn the top layer of skin off if you use it full strength, but it knocks the little critters down for sure. You can also find soap made with tea tree oil. I use that to bathe.

Good luck, forget the idiot Doctors, I have lost respect for ALL of them!

MItes
by: Marilyn

I have these bugs too for a couple of months, have tried everything to kill them. Only way is to suffocate them with olive oil or Bag Balm, or some thick oil. Mine are real small now, but still have eggs and such which is really gross. I feel like they are outside too, we sprayed the inside of house down with rubbing alcohol last night, seemed to help. And you are right, nobody cares, not even my own kids. They think i am crazy or on meth and i aint neither. I am 49 years old and my friend has them too, he is 68, this is the worst thing to happen to me, i am so depressed, supposed to go back to work next tuesday but dont want to give this to anyone, i have no choice out of money and cant afford to lose my job although i am losing my mind..Good luck to everyone with these bugs, and god bless..

biteing bugs
by: we need help to

My husband has these bugs and they are driving him crazy. They do get aroung the blood vein and feed. we have been watching them close and have tried everything and nothing seems to get rid of them. we cant even find out what they are called. does anyone know a nome for them? it seems like they grow and then you will see a little snout sticking out of the skin and if you can squeeze them, sometimes you can get it to come out and other times you have to try to pull it out with tweezers. seems like they just showed up and nobody know what they are or what to do for them. my husband is a diabetic and they leave sores on him that are hard to get healed up, after they come out of the skin it looks like they leave a hole. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bug with Snout
by: Angie

You said you "tried everything." Could you be more specific on what you have tried to get rid of these bugs with a snout that your husband sees in his skin?

What have you tried externally? What have you tried internally? How long did you persist in treatment?

Have you been able to capture one and take it in to be examined for identification?

white bugs with a snout
by: Anonymous

these little wihite bugs with a snout some people said they were mites but i have never seen a mite that enters the skin now some things that i have found that kinda works is bathing in salt water the hotter the better it brings them to the top tea tree oil soap works a litte. but if you look at your body hair thats were the eggs come from . what these bugs do is that they enter the skin thru sweat glands oil glands or hair roots i have use spray on neet hair remover on just little patches at a time and scrape the hair off and these things where every where the water in the sink was cover with these dead little things and they stink then you will need to apply a oil to the skin to try to seal these holes off. in the winter time if you have in your nose , when they get cold , they will move around to try to get warm. when you see someother rubbing there nose they have these things the ones on the hair rooys or mights the white ones might be some other stage s life of these might . they are white to yellow and tear drop on shape with a tappering nose. the nose goes in frist

hair mites the easy wat to get rid of these is to get rid of the hair shaving wont work ,try a littl patch of body hait spray on some neet hair remover lte it set for the right time and pull or scrape the hair off , then you can see these little dead mites where ever spayed . another thing is to bathe in hot salt water you need to soak in it then wash the skin witha wash rag with soap these things will float on the water and cover the bottom of the tube then apply a good lotion or try to use tea tree oil but thin it down

I have these too and feel like i am going crazy
by: Anonymous

I have big knots on my head and i thought i had lice for the longest time. I was treating my head with lice shampoo daily, as well as, combing my hair with a lice comb. I have been to multiple doctors but not a dermatoligist yet. I break out in rashes, hives, and welps whereever they bite me on my body. The bugs I see are white, off white, black, grey, and red. However their so small they dont really look like bugs. I use rubbing alcohol on a q tip and rub it on the knots on my head and alot of them will fall out but then they get all over my house. My dog seems to be irritated by these little bugs too. I have been finding these orange cluster looking crusty things that I think are part of this problem. Does anyone know what that could be?

how to kill bugs under your skin
by: Anonymous

i have had these bugs under my skin for over a year now. Doctors have not even come close to diagnosing them, much less treating them and most think im nuts. anyhow these bugs are about half the diameter of a cigarette, and slightly oval shaped. they always leave a small welt with 4 distinctive dust-sized dots on your skin which are generally very symmetrical. anyhow, without going into further detail, having tried everything i found a way to kill them in a matter of hours. Get 5 or 10 tubes of superglue (i dont care the side effects) and cover the complete infected area and go a little beyond with a thin layer of glue. let it dry 10-20 minutes and apply another coat, let dry apply another, let it dry and then put on a thick, i mean really thick. within an hour or 2 you will see them turning white and breaking down into a white pussy liquid. leave glue on as long as it stays which is only a day or 2. the glue falls off real easy because of the constant movement of your skin under normal daily life. thats it, done! it takes several days to get each and every one, you just got to go over every sing inch of your body especially in hairy areas. I believe your suffocating and the 4 dust spots are some king of "snorkle"? So most importantly make sure to cover the dots and deny them air. I know it sounds weird but who cares, it works. Enjoy bug free life again...

bugs
by: Ari

clear nail polish works well also. I just figured out a couple days ago that it was a bug. thought it was a scratch and then kept feeling like something was crawling in that area. I put clear polish on and the itching/crawling stopped immediately. Its been 2 days and just like was said about glue, there is now a white pus like dot that i will prick off.

bed bugs
by: angel hart

I have had bed bugs for three weeks. Brought them home after a trip. Did not know what they were and had never seen them before. Had welts all over my body. A lot of the welts are three bumps in a row (that is how they feed I found out.) Used every kind of poison over the counter. Could not kill them. I have had no sleep for weeks so went to a hotel last night. Checked the room, it looked okay. Woke up at 3 a.m. getting bitten. They were in the mattress cover. The plastic only saves the mattress, but they are in the pillows and mattress cover. The babies looking like little black dots. They line along the seams of the mattress pad. Check everything before you lie down. After coming home from no sleep, I sat outside, afraid to go in my house again (even though yesterday I had to spend lots of money to get a professional exterminator.) As I was sitting outside in the hot sun, I noticed black dots on my white shirt. The more I examined myself, I realized the bed bugs were under my skin. No wonder I have been sick. My doctor did not have a clue. He thought it was stress. So my contribution to this site: I sat in the sun all day (got burned and did not care)and they slowly came out. They HATE the sun. Another thing I noticed was little white dots came out too. I looked it up and it is the larva. First the larva, then the little black dots. I have a clean house, so it has nothing to do with that. What I have found is that you have to go crazy with cleaning. All your bedding. All your clothes. Everything in your dresser drawers. Your drapes (they like to climb.) I was told this would take eight treatments to rid my house of this and they only saw two bugs. Two. They hide in outlets, molding, chipped paint, headboards, foot boards, and all furniture. I am still fighting to this day. I have never felt so alone in my life because I am keeping everyone away so nothing gets on them. I was told this is becoming epidemic. New York is hit very hard and next Florida. Some places are even getting government money to try and kill these bed bugs. They used to use DDT, but the government outlawed it and since them nothing kills them because they have a resistance to all pesticides. This is going to turn into a huge problem for everyone. They are in hotel chains, casinos, movie theaters, airplanes. If you are in any of these places, leave your luggage in the trunk of your car. Carry your clothes right to the washer and take your clothes off at the door and put them in a garbage bag and carry it to the washer so they do not fall on the floor in your house. It is a hassle but way better than going through all of the trouble to trying to get rid of them. Thank you for all the advice about getting them all your body, I am going to try each suggestion. Good luck everyone.

find them
by: Anonymous

the best way to find them on the skin is to wash with hot soapy water wash all over and rinse off in the sink not the tub, then let the water out slow, and look in the bottom of the sink ,they are there in the bottom some times there are lots they are hard to see , at this i have just a few left, now these are in the skin if you kill these while under the skin you will have a puss pocket , now these will feel like some thing tapping on your head, and thats what they are doing it must have some thing to do with mating what they do is they go down a oil gland head frist and eat the oil i have some on slides and have seen them under a mirco scope, all of them are dead, getting out must kill them, but i have only a few left on my head and on my back, you just have to keep after them

Brown Bug Under Skin, etc.
by: Angie

Hi Bart,

My suggestion is as always - start with an internal cleanse. It's important to make your body an unfriendly environment for pests and you can do that by cleansing with antiparasitic herbs and psyllium. I use Herbal Fiberblend.


I would also suggest that you take some Bear Paw Garlic as well. It has many beneficial properties, but is also a natural anti-parasitic.


When you say you are getting sick every time you eat, do you mean you are actually throwing up or just feeling sick to your stomach? Are you able to keep anything down?


You definitely need some nutritional support for your body in order to fight off anything that is invading it. Something that may help is the use of whole food supplement powders. You can mix them with water and sip them throughout the day to help you get the nutrition your body needs to support your immune system and help you improve.


What are you using to treat these little brown bugs under the skin from the outside? Have you tried any of the essential oils like clove, tea tree, lavender, etc? They might give you some relief. You can soak in a tub with some sea salt and essential oil.


I'm very sorry to hear of your distress and hope that you and the others will be able to get rid of this condition soon.

Hoping the Doctor Can Help...
by: Angie

Hi Bart,

I hope your doctor will be both sympathetic and persistent in seeking out what it is that is affecting you so terribly.

If you've lost that much weight in a month, surely they will realize something is definitely wrong. Being put in the hospital is not a bad idea. That's one sure way to prove that you aren't on drugs or anything. (Unless THEY give them to you!)

Please do keep us posted when you are able. Hope and pray that they can discover the problem and get you back into a good state of health soon.

Blessings,
Angie

I do not have the time to tell you my whole story here, but trust me I have been through what you're going through now. It got so bad that I was hospitalized and later committed myself for a short time.

Everyone including myself thought I was crazy. It effected every part of my life.

The good news is that once you understand what you are dealing with you can come through this.

The bad news is that there is no simple fix, rather it is a process that will take some time. However, there are several things that you can do right of the bat to greatly improve your situation.

I am including my e-mail address below, please feel free to contact me via email if you like. Once you email me I'll send you my phone number so we can talk on the phone. In the mean time try to stay calm and try to get as much rest as you can.

Trust me everything you described in your posts I went through, including the things infesting my testicles, very painful and disgusting I know.

I went to many doctors, and got no help! They either thought I was crazy or said I had scabies. The fact is that it is neither.

What you are dealing with is either bird mites, rodent mites, or northern fowl mites. Quite possibly a combination of these three or even all of them.

These mites are much larger than the scabies mites and are regrettably all around us in nature. It wasn't until I spoke to several vets and one biologist who specialized in mites that I came to understand what was going one with me and subsequently treat the problem.

Your case, like mine was, is severe. You will probably have to take several rounds of Ivermectin in order to treat mites which do survive and bread internally.

Invermectin is a medication that is taken orally to kill off the mites from the inside. Then you will need to apply several rounds of permathrin 5% (Elimite) topically. Both of these medications require a prescription from your doctor.

Also you will get your doctor to prescribe Hydoxyzine HCL 25 MG tablets for you, this is an antihistamine that will alleviate the swelling, pain, and nervousness created by the mites assault on you. It will help you sleep better too. Forget the lice shampoo, it is useless in your case. Don't panic about the meds they are all safe and relatively inexpensive as fars a persciption meds go.

Also if your doctor wont perscribe them for you I can tell you how to order them online through over seas pharmacies on your own cheaper then you can get them at the drug store with a script.

GOING CRAZY Cause of bugs.
by: David

I wrote only a short time ago maybe they are from birds Im not so sure of that you guys seem to be in the United States right?A friend of mine who i mentioned this to said something about vietnamese burrowing scabies i finally nailed a speciman today believe it it has taken 4 months of seeing doctors pest controlers and the local council if it is in the birds why do they only seem to be more ravenous at night or in the house and from what i can establish the older you are we are in our 50s while our son 22 does not seem to get attacked i am assuming this for several reasons his immune system being younger and not being at home as he works ans goes out some nights.All the symptoms that 8 out of 10 on this forum are the same we even moved and thought they had gone until a week later my wife discovered them on the linen they seem to go through the normal insect progretion egg to larvae to the trunk thing to the size of a small grain af rice they only seem to dig in so far not like a tick we have had the same deal with doctors thinking your on ice or insane i dont know if they can fly or jump like a flea but for this day and age surely somebody knows i think they zero in on body heat it was only today i went outside to have one of the 50 cigarettes that they have made me smoke that i looked on my arm and saw one crawling up i grabbed it and as i have 20 specimen jars on hand i nailed the little F i got my magnifying glass 3 times and saw that it was 2 or 3 and they join together im taking the specimen in tomorrow and will keep you guys up to date i mean man the money we have spent on creams and exterminators well you guys no the deal they wont even put my wife in hospital over here in australia she even washed her hair in alcohol i dont know about the super glue thing but these things do F with your head all these herbal things sre useless they are leaving scars i do think it is an axotic thing and i sympathasize with all of you give me a few days and i think i will have the answer.question have any of you taken specimens to be examined?

undescribable bites
by: Anonymous

I did not realize there were so many other people around with this same problem im having, yet i cant seem to see any bug on me i sure can feel them. I have bites all over me,had a bug man come in my place and look for bed bugs,nothing! no bed bug around. i replaced furniture,beding,beds,clothes,socks(etc),shoes in the last two years. No clue as to what this is. I cant see anything crawling,i have places where i feel something had burrowed in my skin but no bug.
Doctor put me on so many things its unreal, steroid shot,staph infection,thought it was MRSA tested my skin for that(negative),Scabbies. The doctor couldnt tell so she sent me to a specialist(dermatologist)this doctor tested my skin,didnt find MRSA,staph infection--he says yeah something is biting you but i cant tell you what it is unless you find one and bring it to me to see what kind it is and then i can tell you what it is. He told me to take cool showers useing dove soap for sensitive skin,curel lotion for sensitive skin, and put this topical lotion only on the afected areas 3 times a day(Triamcinolone Acetonide cream)that cream helps. If you have any idea as to how i can find one of these things-please tell me.

Undescribable Bites May Not Really Be Bites
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Sometimes when you can't find something biting you, it's because there is nothing biting you.


I am NOT saying that it's in your imagination! I'm saying that it very well may be that the feelings you are experiencing are actually coming from an internal condition.


It's not uncommon for an internal parasite infection or yeast overgrowth in the body to cause you to feel pinprick bites all over the skin.


Since you've tried everything else without success, it's really time to try giving your body what it needs to achieve good health and see if that works.


Cleanse the body internally with a good herb and fiber combo like Herbal Fiberblend, and help boost your immune system with a good diet (little or no sugar and processed foods) and good quality immune boosting nutritional supplements like Barley Life and AIMega.


You said, "Doctor put me on so many things its unreal," which makes me suspect you were also given antibiotics. If that's the case, you should take at least one bottle of Florafood or other good quality probiotic to rebuild the good bacteria in your body and keep it in balance.


I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you find that taking these steps will start improving your condition in just a few weeks and possibly eliminate it completely with a few months of faithful use.


The supplements I've suggested above have the added advantage of having a money back guarantee. Give them a try and let me know how you do.

Found something's that help
by: Anonymous

I have the same problem with something burrowing into my skin and staying there for months.
Been to 6 different Doctors and they don't know whst it is.
I have spent thousands of dollars because of the problem, hot water heater broke because I washed too much,.
These are the things that helped.
I covered mattress and pillow in plastic.
I spray the baseboards with Eucalyptus oil almost daily.
Vacuum daily
Shower with pure Verbena lemon soap and use a soft baby hair brush to scrub my skin.
Wash my hair with Head and Shoulders with Ecalyptus and use a conditioner from Whole Foods called Theraneem Naturals, it has Neem oil, and a list of other especial oils.
Then recently my Doctor gave me a prescription for a topical cream called Prutect. I cover each sore and put a bandaid on
it and I notice the sores are healing. Protect has a wax in it
and my doctor believes this is smotheing the insects do they
die.
I am improving daily,
I do hope this is helpful to everyone who is suffering. My problem started in Oct. 2011 and suspect bird mites from a shipment of totes I received from Asia.

Update on burrowing insects
by: Anonymous

I found some major improvements by putting peppermint oil in my. Shampoo. Also adding peppermint oil to a body wash.
Many Leisons are clearing up slowly, but difiniately clearly up.

I sprinkle Epsom salt on my carpets and leave it for a fewdaysthen vacuum up. I also put peppermint oil on the baseboards.

I also use a prescription cream called Prutect to smother them and it promotes the healing.
This has been a 17 month ordeal, but making headway.

I found if I spray the interior of my car with Lysol spray it kills the mites or whatever they are, less biting in the car.

I believe this is a foreign insect that is transported into this country by products made in the Far East..

Trimming shrubs
by: Anonymous

About 2 years ago I trimmed the hedges and then the next day I started having a burrowing under my skin and it itched. I tried different creams and that didn't work. I went to the doctor and she gave me some cream Permethrin Cream and it helped to get rid of them. She said it was bed bugs but I knew that it wasn't.

Then my husband trimmed the hedges the next time and he got the same thing. He used the cream the doctor gave me and got rid of them.

This past weekend I bought some stuff to kill bugs in bushes and sprayed the hedges. The next day I put a long sleeve shirt on and wrapped the sleeves so nothing could climb up there and put my pant legs in my socks. I also wore gloves. That was on Friday and on Sunday I had the burrowing bugs again and they are on my face. I using that cream and some anti itch cream and it is driving me crazy. What do you think that could be?

bug free
by: Anonymous

I am here to tell you there is hope. I had these awful bugs too and right now I am bug free. I had them sent to a lab and they told me they were collembola (springtails). They are some sort of bird mite. They are not very common but the doctors all thought I was crazy. I had 3 rounds of ingested scabies medicine and the 2 rounds of cream. Washed and vacumed everything for 3 months straight. Once I found out what they were the exterminator had to special order the spray and sprayed our whole house inside and out with crystalized granoles and dust was shot into our walls. My whole life was a nightmare for 6 months straight. Dont give up hope. If they are not springtails then I suggest you send a specimen to the lab to find out what they acutally are so you can kill them. Hope this helps.

i"ve been through hell
by: steve negri

i had some tiny fly in my room that when i killed some of them. they would bite me like there pissed off. then i started getting bitten. whatever it still is, is still not clear to me. these things burrow into my skin and stay to feed on my blood. i have been for some time now, scratching at them and doing what ever i can to pull them out. i have been to 3 emergency rooms and doctors and a skin specialist who all just gave me some cream. 2 hospitals said i"m dilusional. wrong answer! see what i mean. i was getting bitten by tiny bugs which i caught and brought to a skin specialist and he said they were nothing. this has been an ongoing thing in a house that i"m staying in. they see my legs and arms and still don"t believe me. one person is a nurse who doesn"t believe me at all. both my legs have been have many bites and still some inside of me. if i pull one out and i bleed, two or more spin and re"enter my skin. i have been dealing with this for almost 2 years. i"m moving out soon and i hope they don"t follow. i have been using crazy glue on the open ones and it seems to work. i have been givin all sorts of creams and they work alittle. also i"m the only one in the house that is going through this. i"ve searched the internet and did find one woman with the same thing. everything that she said i"m going through. the glue has helped a great deal and taking bathes are also helping, but i can"t live in a bathtub. i have tryed everything and they keep coming. it seems like in stages. there"s a little white thing that looks like a tiny jet plane that bite me. there is even one that looks like a small piece of string about hail an inch that i have to dig out of my skin as well. if anyone knows anything about this please let me know. my cell is 203-628-5276.

Bugs burrowing under the skin.
by: Anonymous

My daughter has these and the drs do not know what to do about them, they do leave trails like a mole in dirt, but in the skin. They have more than one in the hole, and itch. When you try to get them out, they form a glaze over them to try to stop you, and stop what you are putting on them from reaching them. They are running her crazy. Even in her eyelashes and eye lids you can see the trails they make. She is a hairdresser so cannot even work, and is losing everything. Please, Please can anyone help her, she has the places all over her, even on her privates. They are all over her arms and back, legs, buttocks and everywhere. She is using the tea tree oil, peroxide, alcohol, and the diamatatious earth on floors and car. Please help her, GOD Bless and thanks. Angies Mom.

Helping Your Daughter With Possible Bugs Burrowing Under The Skin
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Hi "Angie's Mom,"

(My name is Angie, too!) So sorry to hear about your daughter's condition and the lack of success she has had in fighting it.


I assume the doctors have ruled out scabies? That's the usual culprit when you think of bugs that burrow under the skin leaving tracks in their wake.


Another not uncommon possibility is hookworm. It's not particularly common for them to work their way to the eye, but it is possible.


Of course, there are unfortunately many less common possibilities, which is what makes a proper diagnosis so difficult.


It doesn't really sound like either to me in some ways, but almost rather like a severe internal yeast infection since it is affecting so many different areas of the body. Definitely sounds like an internal issue.


Having said all that, the best suggestions that we can offer is what we've said time and again - cleanse internally with anti-parasitic herbs and build up the immune system with an aggressive nutritional supplement protocol.


These are the suggestions I made at the beginning of this page:



...and they are still the best suggestions for a situation like your daughter's.


In fact, I'd include Composure and Bear Paw Garlic, if you can manage it for the added benefit of helping relaxing her and helping her get some sleep as well as making her body a more uninviting place for whatever pest is bugging her.


I might also add that she needs to be careful with topical use of the tea tree oil. If it's not helping it may be best to stop using it as it can cause an allergic reaction in some people that creates an extremely itchy rash (I've been there!).


Tea tree oil is anti-parasitic but it doesn't work for everything so use with caution in cases like Angie's.


Sure hope this info helps. Do keep us posted.

bugs under skin
by: nannette

Yep I got them. Pill does work. Ivermectim, but not completely. Wash my hair with flea shampoo often, and put it on bad spots for 24 hrs. The eggs are the hardest to get rid of.Doctor thinks I'm crazy. Bugs like to follow veins. I've use Nair to remove hair on my legs and discovered this really upsets them. Then hit them with flea soap... I have used frontline plus on big lumps which I think are eggs. It does work. Black dots? Not sure if bugs or feces.If I put callous remover on big bumps I end up with a large hole, but skin next to bump is fine. THESE ARE NOT bed bugs. My dogs get them in there feet and on face. If we could get Doctors to believe us maybe there would be an easier treatment. I GO TO Dr. George at 56th ave & Thunderbird in Glendale Arizona. She thinks she cured me with sprays and ointments of asteroids. Not true

Don't give up without trying... NEW
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Dear JC,

Can you get your daughter to try the suggestions I gave above for the three main supplements to help clean out her system and boost her immune levels?

Herbal Fiberblend
Barley Life
AIMega

There are more supplements she could take to help, but those are the three most important to get her started in the right direction.

I understand your frustration and despair, but I hate to see her go through all that and not try something as simple and effective as those nutritional supplements when they are readily available here.

Blessings,
Angie
