Small Red Crawling Bugs
Anyone heard of these small red crawling bugs?
This started sometime in 2001. I broke out in lumps on my upper arms. I originally thought they were pimples.
Some of the larger ones I tried to pop. Instead of popping, the surface skin would come off and expose a circular red sore that would bleed for hours, then slowly scab over, but never heal.
As time passed, the lumps spread down my arms and across my upper torso.
I talk to my doctor about them during regular checkups. Years ago, he took samples of the scabs and had them tested. The results came back negative - there was nothing growing on or in me that wasn't on everybody else.
And because nothing but blood ever come out of the sores, Doc and I believed it must be some kind of virus. We tried both internal and external medicines for different types of infections but nothing worked.
Over the years, I've tried everything over the counter that I could think of, but to no avail. Then last week, I tried a soap product I'd seen advertised on TV called "fungi cure."
I went to the store and bought some - and have been using it straight on my skin for about a week. My skin is currently suffering from base burns from direct exposure to the soap, but I've suffered through worse in the past.
I'm not one to shy away from pain, especially with the hope that something that hurts this bad will eventually kill what's in me.
Anyway, this Fungi Cure has finally produced a reaction. It itches like a mother, and some of the scabs have started healing.
I removed a scab that wasn't healing and applied a wet bandage of hydrogen peroxide over it. When I removed what I call a "wet bandage" (I fill a plastic cap filled hydrogen peroxide and tape it over a sore to expose it to constant treatment), I found a tiny, blood red bug in the peroxide.
I fished it out of the peroxide and observed it thinking it was dead, but then it started to move and crawled around rather quickly over the tissue I had it on. I've placed it into a bag that I'm going to take to the Doc after I call and make an appointment on Monday.
So now I know what's in me. I know they're tiny - about the size of a pin head. They're blood red, full of blood, and crawl around on legs (I could only see 2 sticking out the front but there must be more).
And I know they are very, very, very difficult to kill. I've spent some time on the internet trying to track down what these things are, but no luck so far.
Can anyone provide some insight on these small red crawling bugs?
I'm quite interested in hearing more about what you find out regarding these small red crawling bugs. It may be that you are dealing with one of the many varieties of mites.
Yes, they may actually be in your system, or it may be that you just ended up with one in that particular sore that wasn't healing.
Sometimes we can jump to the wrong conclusion based on "circumstantial evidence," but you'll know more for certain if you discover more of them, and if you can get the small red crawling bugs identified.
I assume that you've tried herbal parasite cleanses in the past in your attempt to get rid of the red bumps? If not, that's a good first step, particularly if these bugs ARE in you. I'd suggest Herbal Fiberblend
You should also be pumping your body up with some good probiotics
, too, as well as the best nutrition you can afford. Good nutrition is the underlying resource that our bodies use to fight off invaders and heal.
If you're not so great at eating the best diet, try some whole food supplement powders
to help you in that area.
I'm a little concerned about the reaction you are getting from the soap. The severe itching sounds like an allergic reaction to something that's in it. Even though the Fungicure is supposed to be a natural product, that doesn't mean you can't be allergic to it.
I once had a horrific reaction to pure tea tree oil and the itching and rash was the worst I'd experienced in my life!
If you hadn't come across this small red crawling bug, I'd have guessed based on your description of your red bumps that they were the result of your body being overloaded with toxins and trying to eliminate them as best it can.
If you have a fungal overgrowth (candida) in the body or any type of internal parasite, in fact, that can lead to too many toxins for the body to handle easily.
The liver is pretty good at tackling toxic waste from parasites, etc., and sending it out through the feces. But, when the liver can't keep up, the skin is the largest elimination organ and it usually gets stuck dealing with the residue.
Please let us know what you find out once you've had the small red crawling bugs examined. To your good health!
