Parasite That Leaves A Small Black Line
(Pollock Pines CA)
What is this parasite that leaves a small black line? I thought I had bed bugs. What do bed bugs do?
I have these little white looking things that I find on carpet and desk. Then I find a black bug, it looks like, then I touch and it is like a skin or like ash. It just falls apart.
Then I find these little bugs that looks like baby to big skin or shell.
I went and purchased bed bug bombs and spray. I vacuumed up a bunch of different size bugs but what are these little black lines or are they baby bed bugs?
Whatever they are, they started on the tops of feet and then are on my back and legs. When I first spotted on the tops of feet looked like black dots. Now still have dots but it looks like the little ones or the babies are under my skin or they hold on real good because you have to take skin off with tweezers and just remove piece of it.
Help! What kills bed bugs? I am going crazy.
Are you talking about a parasite that leaves a small black line under the skin? This doesn't really sound like bedbugs to me, though I'm not really a "bedbug expert."
Usually bedbugs are difficult to see, but are generally evidenced in
and around your mattress.
Their bites tend to come only when you are in bed, and the bite marks are typically red dots.
I'll be honest in telling you that I can't possibly diagnose you or confirm what it is that you are dealing with based on your description.
It's possible that some
of what you are seeing is the feces from a type of bug rather than another type of actual bug.
Are you able to take some samples of the various specimens you are finding and show perhaps your local cooperative extension? They may be able to give you specific identification so that you can know how to treat them for extermination.
You could be experiencing mites, a fungal infection, or something else entirely. Some of our visitors have provided similar descriptions and believe they have Morgellons.
A few people have mentioned that they have found Cedarcide
to be helpful for spraying around the home to get rid of pests without using nasty chemicals.
For your skin, you might want to try some lavender and tea tree oil combined with a carrier oil to wipe on the affected areas of your body a couple of times per day.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but I do hope that you are able to get some relief soon. To your good health!
