Pinprick Bites And Itching
My mother started getting pinprick bites and itching all over the place, sort of random. It almost seamed like they would attack and then go away for a while every day.
I thought she was nuts. We have 3 cats in the house and my cat comes down to my room in the basement.
Well, one day I sat up on the couch where my mom was having problems and my cat did and later that night I was getting pinprick bites and itching, just a few.
As the days went on there was more and more, and now it's out of control.
Sometimes we find black specks so tiny where we were itching and also we find white specks almost all the time where we itch. Under the microscope they look like nothing, maybe feces for the black and salt for the white.
We have been to doctors and dermatologists, vets, you name it, entomologists. They can't find anything, but I know there's something there. These people piss me off.
Anyway, a friend of mine is going to school to be a doctor and has some knowledge of microscopes and biology. Well, I had him look at slides we made from samples from our skin and our cats.
We found a jumping bug one day as well very small and taped it to a slide, but we had about 30 slides. Anyway he found some bugs.
We don't know what they are and need them identified so the doctors will help us. Would you be willing to look at them?
One of the bugs looks like a flea or mite taken at 40x and one looks like a worm like creature taken at 400x.
Whatever these are, they are causing serious problems. I feel fatigued, tired, some soreness, some stomach irritation, but the worst is the crawling and the biting.
I get all these little bites and some don't go away.
No one can find anything; not the exterminators, not the doctors, not the dermatologist, not the vet, not specialists and labs mostly reject us and say, "We don't do that here."
Yet me and my friend found something on our own. Ridiculous! Please help us. I would be grateful.
You and your mother have my sincerest sympathies for what you are going through. I'm truly sorry to hear of your growing frustration and continual suffering.
First of all, we are strictly an informational site majoring on the subjects of parasites and digestive health as well as some other natural health topics.
I guess you'd say we fall into the category of "we don't do that here," which I know is NOT what you want to hear. We are not doctors, scientists, entomologists or otherwise, but simply "average" people who have an interest in and preference for natural health and healing.
Unfortunately, even the CDC won't accept specimen submissions from us "average" people for examination. They require you to go through a physician or your state health department. Have you tried your state health department yet?
You are more than welcome to photograph your findings and upload them here in the hopes
that someone else may be able to identify them for you and shed a little more light on the specific unknown parasites you are dealing with. (If you can't figure out how to upload the photos, just send them to me via email angie(at)allaboutparasites.com and I'll post them for you).
What I CAN tell you is that it definitely sounds like you have some form of parasites (duh!) afflicting you.
The symptoms of pinprick bites and itching as well as the fatigue, stomach discomfort, crawling sensations, and soreness are all very much the common symptoms of intestinal parasites.
It sounds like you've tried quite a few things already to get rid of your pinprick bites and itching parasites - even exterminators! What I'm wondering now is if you've tried any natural anti-parasitic treatments?
Quite often, the only way to get rid of internal parasites is to do a good internal cleanse and simultaneously pump up your immune system.
Interested? If so, here's what I'd suggest for both you and your mom.
- Para 90 capsules - 3 bottles each (to be taken in a one month period)
- Herbal Fiberblend powder - 3 pots each (to be taken over a 3 month period)
- Florafood capsules - start with 4-6 capsules daily for the first month and then you should be able to taper down to 2 per day until you are quite confident you've gotten rid of the problem
The Para 90 and Herbal Fiberblend are both full of anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs. They are formulated to help to kill of parasites and flush the dead and dying parasites as well as toxins out of your body.
The Florafood is a combination of 3 probiotics. Probiotics are the good bacteria that your body needs to help maintain a strong immune system and fight off invading parasites and bacteria.
Mind you, this is NOT a diagnosis or any such thing. This is just what I would recommend to my own family members and what I would (and do) use myself.
On top of that, do your best to improve your nutritional intake. Avoid junk food, particularly sweets, for a while as sugar feeds parasites.
You can also increase the amount of garlic in your diet (garlic is naturally anti-parasitic and anti-fungal, too).
Occasionally I'm accused of trying to "push products" on people. I suppose it could appear that way to the casual observer, but that is not my main purpose.
I genuinely want to use my knowledge to help people like you and your mom get relief from their debilitating health issues, particularly when they haven't found relief from all the "usual" channels.
You can certainly buy the necessary herbs and mix them yourself if you prefer, but most people are happier to use a tried and proven ready-made formula.
Whatever you decide to do, please know that you're in my prayers and that I hope you and your mother can find relief and healing from the pinprick bites and itching soon, as well as the other symptoms, too.
Please let me know if I can be of further help.To your good health!
