These Are Some Of The Sores On My Legs

I am having trouble with sores on my legs and arms that won't go away and I don't know what is causing them or how to get rid of them.

It all started when I took in some kittens that were absent from their mother. I didn't realize how sick they were. I felt so sorry for them as they looked so terrified.

Their eyes were closed shut and I had to clean them at least 3 times a day. Mind you there were 5 of them. I had to bottle feed them, too! It was not easy, but I had to do something.

It took me over a year to get them well enough to live. They all would have died. Well, long story short... I ended keeping all 5 of them because I got so attached to all of them.

Now about me, for the past 4 or 5 months I have been getting these sores on my legs and arms and they are getting worse.

If I pick them, a little brown bug comes out and it starts to bleed and the sore gets all inflamed. It also take a long time to heal and leaves a hole and a very ugly scar and sometimes it gets reinfected with more brown bug.

I just don't know what to do with this because I don't know what it is. I wonder if it came from the kittens. I don't feel them moving around or they don't itch real bad but they look so ugly and are destroying my skin and are inflamed and hurt to the touch.

Sometimes if I scratch my skin there are tiny little black dots appear. I don't want to go to the doctor because I don't want to be told that it's nothing.

I have been reading up on things I think it might be, but it's too much ...this or that and it's worse each day.

I just want it to go away! It's a thorn in my side! Oh...maybe that's what it is "thorns!" Just kidding. It's better to joke about it than just crying all the time. 😄😭😂

Do you have any suggestions?

Little brown bugs NEW
by: Barb

These are probably "sand"fleas. I have dealt with yhis in past. In what area of country do you live? You dont have to be on a beach or in a desert. But Im trying to see a pattern for ALL cases.
SEE A DOCTOR. And your primary care doc needs to refer you to either infectious disease or at very least a dermatologist. OR if your primary care doc knows their stuff you need a skin scraping and/or biopsy of sore. To identify. Now...the reason they arent healing is that the likely contain larvae of bug. It bleeds because the attach to a blood vessel.
When you find one burrowed in asap hold ONE of these over site.1/2 strength vinegar OR 1/2 strength hydrogen peroxide OR aloe OR baking soda paste OR a salt scrub. Remember they begin laying eggs asap so if you find one you need to act right away. An oil containing peppermint and clove will also help. SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
I cleaned sores with 1/4 strength hydrogen peroxide (3/4 distilled water 1/4 hydrogen peroxide. This helped remove larva and then an sntibiotic can then help heal. Antibiotics without cleaning out wound of larvae probably wont do much. In my case did not work at all.
Again if you dont mind, area of country.. NOT address. Just generally.

Seek Medical help NEW

Go and get tested at a free clinic or the emergency. That way you will know for sure what they are and to get the best possible treatment. Then you will not have to worry cry or wonder you will know. Just a little discomfort and a lot of peace of mind...

Sores On Legs And Arms
by: Angie from

Dear Iris,

How sweet of you to mother that litter of kittens and get them well. I'm sorry that you may be suffering so severely as a result, if that is the source of your skin issues.

I have to admit that although I can't specifically identify your condition, it is quite likely that you have indeed picked up something from them that is now plaguing you.

It would be particularly helpful to know if you have any other health conditions (even if they are unrelated) as that can be an indicator of your best course of action, but I will give you my best suggestions based on what you have told me.

First of all, I can't stress enough the importance of a good internal cleanse and some immune boosting supplements. Your body can only help fight with whatever tools you give it to work with.

I use and suggest the AIM products most often because I am confident in their high quality. I've always achieved positive results with them.

In your case I would suggest the following:

  • Composure
  • Herbal Fiberblend
  • AIMega
  • Leaf Greens
  • Florafood

If you decide to take my suggestions on this, let me know and I will give you an exact protocol of how to take each one and what time of day, etc., for you to get the best results.

If you are on a low income and can't afford the lot, the most important one I would focus on in your case would be the Herbal Fiberblend and then just try to eliminate as much sugar and junk food from your diet as possible and eat as nutritious as you can to give your body as much support as you are able from your food.

Another suggestion I would make to you is to soak daily in a bath with sea salt or epsom salts and and several drops of an essential oil if possible. I would use clove oil, tea tree oil, or even lavender oil if you already have that on hand.

This will help heal your sores and has the added affect of being anti-parasitic and anti-bacterial.

Finally, if you can pick up some organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil and apply that to your skin after your bath, that should help too. I usually buy mine from Puritan's Pride but you should be able to find some in a local health food store if you prefer. For this purpose, I would suggest you stick with the organic virgin coconut oil rather than a refined variety.

Okay, well that's the best I can do with what I know of your situation. I wish you all the best. Please let me know if I can be of further help.
