Something seems to be growing under my scalp??
by Desperate for a Cure
About 8 months ago I was bitten by something in my scalp. It would grow into a spot like a pimple. I would pick the head off it, squeeze it as much as I could as it was very painful, and then it would just scab over and become bigger.
After a few months I would then have these pimple type sores pop up all over my scalp and I could feel something moving about underneath like something was growing there.
Once the scabs had dried I'd be able to pick them off and what came off always seemed to have some type of a tail but not head.
During this time and which continues to this day I get ill from these. I went onto the internet to find a cure as I went to my Doctor who has now prescribed me with 3 lots of antibiotics and a scalp solution which only helped the inflammation and stopped taking the antibiotics as they didn't seem to be helping either.
I have tried every known cure on the internet so far and I seem to have killed off quite a few of these things - however I now have a very painful line of them where they seem to have concentrated in the middle of my scalp and just the one at the back of my neck in the hair line.
As a result of the pain and the sickness I was feeling I requested a referral to my local hospital dermatological unit - I attended and was told I was 'imagining it'.
I do not get sick very often, I do not have eczema and I know my own body and I know when something isn't right.
I had even kept a substantial amount of scrapings of these 'scabs' to be sent off for analysis and to date still have no answer as to what it is that I may have.
I have been told it is not ticks. I do know that once the scab has hardened to a stage that I can get a pair of tweezers around it and wince and pull very hard that this thing with the tail on it comes out and I get slight relief.
I then clean the area with a clean cotton ball and tea-tree oil and put Savlon on it which helps to sooth the area.
However, just when I feel they are going, a new batch seem to pop up out of nowhere and now I am left in desperation as I have seen two different doctors and they have no idea what it is.
I would like to know if anyone has ever heard of anything like this before and if this could possibly be something tropical.
I was bitten whilst down in the south of England, in the summer in dense forestry type area and I have looked into if it could possibly be deer ticks but I have been told that it is not.
If anyone could assist me I would be truly grateful as I am at my wits end now and tired of scratching what feels like pretend and imaginary lice that are not there.
What a time you are having! I'm so sorry to hear of it. Whatever it is that you feel seems to be growing under your scalp may or may not be related to a bite you received when in the south of England.
The fact that you have these recurring pimple type sores on your head could come from an unusual parasite or even a very weakened immune system that is unable to fight off some form of infection.
If what you are seeing is definitely a "tail" then you probably do have a parasitic infection of some variety.
It was a good idea to try the tea tree oil. Tea tree has natural anti-parsitic properties and is helpful in many cases, but not all.
I understand why you also tried the antibiotics. Antibiotics can be helpful in certain situations, but more often than not they do more harm than good.
They would have definitely weakened your immune system further because they would have killed off the good bacteria that you still had in your body so that you have fewer natural antibodies to fight off whatever this problem is stemming from.
It's possible (and probably likely) that you are also battling an internal yeast infection as the result of all that your body has been through with the antibiotic treatments and the initial bacteria.
I wish I could give you a definite answer to say "This is what you have." I can't, of course.
What I CAN do is encourage you to try internal cleansing and the use natural immune system builders to give your body the ammunition to fight off this problem on its own.
First of all, cleanse using Herbal Fiberblend
twice per day for a few months. You should get results long before the three months are up, but you want to be sure you get a thorough cleanse so that you don't keep getting a recurrence of the pimples.
Secondly, find some good quality probiotics at a local health food store. I normally recommend Florafood
, but it isn't available in the UK. You want to look for probiotics like acidophilus, bifidum, and longum and take them at least twice per day.
Third, get some Bear Paw Garlic
to act as a natural anti-fungal and blood cleaner.
Finally, start taking the Garden Trio
at least once per day to give your body the nutritional support it needs to build healthy new cells and detox your system of damaging toxins, etc.
I hope you will find that taking this aggressive approach to give your body the tools it needs to cleanse and heal will give you relief and healing.
By the way, have you tried raw organic apple cider vinegar yet? You can put that directly on your head and on the pimples as well as add some to your drinking water to promote faster healing.
Please keep me posted on your progress. I am praying that you are much better soon. To your good health!
