Moving Lumps Under Scalp
(Dover, DE, USA)
Moving lumps under scalp, back of neck and ribcage...
For the past 3 weeks I found 7 small white/clear bugs on me, treated for lice. Have had what I thought were nits, but more of a skin colored blister like bump that I would pick to release what was inside to find a fluid with flakes.
Neither my son nor husband ever got anything from me within these 3 weeks also.
From picking my "nits" I caused myself to get 2 serious infections on my head that swelled up, oozed puss, and are now finally healing, but every other day seem to fill up with dandruff like substance.
In the past week I have discovered moving lumps all over my head and neck that swell up making my hair stick out, then go down.
They have now spread to my left side of rib cage and almost feels like a worm wrapped around my ribcage to my back and is pulsating and painful.
The lumps on my head actually feel like they are sliding around and move when I touch them.
I feel like I'm going crazy. Help!!!!!!!
The description of your bugs, does sound like lice, but the description of the "nits" does not.
Nits are, of course, the eggs laid by the lice, and they do that by attaching them to individual strands of your hair. They don't lay the eggs under the skin.
This makes me think you have something else entirely
going on. Yes, you most certainly could have caused an infection on your scalp by picking.
Unless you've been sick for quite some time with digestive issues, constipation, etc, I really doubt that the moving lumps under scalp and down your rib cage are a parasite worm.
People certainly DO grow large tape worms in their body, but it would be unusual that one would grow that large without any symptoms indicating its presence.
Have you seen a doctor about these lumps? To me, it almost sounds like they are welts. Welts can develop as the result of an allergic reaction to something - a food, a chemical from a product, a bug bite, etc.
If you are experiencing an allergic reaction to something, a doctor might prescribe an antihistamine or even give you a shot of something to bring it down.
Here's a suggestion you may like to try for the troublesome sores on your scalp that are failing to heal properly.
First, dissolve some sea salt in warm water and rinse your scalp thoroughly.
Second, create a mixture of lavender oil and tea tree oil and rub it on your scalp, particularly where you are having the sores.
Repeat this process a couple of times per day until your scalp has cleared up.
I would also suggest that you get some probiotic capsules to take to help strengthen your immune system to help fight off any infection in your system.
