White Hair Like Worm Under My Skin

White Hair Like Worm Under My Skin

I'm gonna lose my mind!

I have been having this problem under my skin and private parts a white hair-like worm leech-like thing in the pores of the hair root.


When I bath, I can rub them out and can not get rid of them. They travel to belly, nips, under arms. It feels like they move in my veins and they sometimes flake through my skin like a leech. They get under my nails everywhere.


They can turn dark and look like a bruise. Seedy. When pulled out they bleed if it's not all removed. In my streak marks they go deep. When pulled out it looks like a small feather.


If any one knows anything about this please tell me. I feel like it's killing me slowly.


Thanks for your help,
Christine








Hi Christine,

I'm so sorry you are having such a terrible time with this condition. I understand why you say, "I'm gonna lose my mind!"


The white hair-like worm sounds like some type of parasite. I can't tell you exactly what it is, but I can give you some good ideas for ways to cleanse your system naturally and build up your body's own natural defenses.


I always feel like that is your best option when dealing with unusual situations like this.


This is what I would do if I was in your position.


  1. Add 1-2 cups of organic raw apple cider vinegar to your bath water each day and have a nice soak. Bragg's is a good brand and you can usually get Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar at your local grocery store or health food store. Just ask.

  2. Take some antiparasitic and antifungal supplements that naturally help to rid your body of parasites from the inside. My favorite choices are Herbal Fiberblend, Para 90, and Bear Paw Garlic. I would use these for at least one month. (The HFB I would use for at least 3 months to give your body a good cleanse and detox).

  3. Build up your body's immune system by using probiotics daily, like Florafood and the Garden Trio whole food supplement powders. If you can't afford them both at once, start with the Florafood and later switch over to the Garden Trio.

  4. Drink plenty of good clean water to help flush the dead and dying parasites from your system.


That is exactly what I would do and take if I was being pestered by some white hair-like worm and the other symptoms you are describing. These supplements give your own body the tools it needs to fight off whatever is ailing you.

I hope you find them as helpful as I do.

To your good health!
Angie

White hairlike worms, skin lesions, crawly feeling
by: Ali

In reguards to the person going out of their mind, I'm in the same position. 1 year ago I started getting horrible disfiguring lesions along jaw, cheek, chest, thighs chins and feet. They break open and ooz a sticky clear fluid. At other times the lesions seem to start to dry up but then these white hair like worm things start comming out of my pores. I also pull tiny flat white feathers out of pores. They are pratically microscopic. I have seen so many doctors only to be told I am hysterical and delusional. I can't sleep I toss and turn, I get migraines every day. My face and body is horribly scarred. My husband and teenager now have same symptoms. I have been taking apple cider baths for 6 months, I also put tea tree oil on several times per day. I am 40 and have never had ANY skin problems. I want to beat the dermatoligists who tell me it's dry skin and I caused the lesions by itching. I wasn't itching until I had this problem. I wish someone knew what this was. How many things can cause white microscopic feathers to appear from the skin? I'm sorry for rambeling, I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown.

White Hair Like Worm and Lesions
by: Angie

Dear Ali,

I'm so sorry to hear your story. I'm glad to hear you are doing the ACV baths, but I hope you are using organic apple cider vinegar (like Bragg's) and not the regular filtered vinegar you get in the vinegar section of your grocery store.


I'm also wondering how long have you been using the tea tree oil? You said you apply it a few times per day. You don't want to keep that up indefinitely. Essential oils are great, but prolonged use can create a negative effect on your hormones in some cases.


I just spent last weekend at an informative convention with a number of health practitioners. I learned so much to help build upon my own knowledge of natural health and healing that I hope I can share with the visitors here.


Based on what you have described and the things I learned, here's what I would suggest for your consideration...

  • Para 90 - 1-3 capsules 3x per day for 1 month.
  • Herbal Fiberblend - start with 1 tsp. 2x per day and increase gradually to 2 Tbsp. 2x per day for internal cleansing until you feel you're completely well (3 months or more).
  • AIMega - 2-3 capsules 2x per day, with food. Reduces inflammation, helps repair damaged cells, etc.
  • Barley Life - start with 2 tsp. 2x per day, but can be gradually increased to several times per day if needed.
  • Florafood - 1 capsule 2-3x per day, with food.



I hope you will be able to find relief and healing using these practical suggestions of providing your body some of the basic tools it needs to cleanse, nourish, and replenish itself.

To your good health!

there is help
by: seattle skin specialist

i have the same problem that you all are describing here, and its so frustrating. there doesn't seem to be any definite answers anywhere. which is odd since you can google anything else and come up with more info than you were looking for. but if anyone is interested i am going to be conducting a research project in the seattle area in hopes that there is a solid cure. i am not a dermatologist but i am a licensed skin specialist and i cant just sit back and wait for someone else to come up with a solution. anyone wanting to participate in this project will be doing so on a strictly voluntary basis, and must be willing to provide a full disclosure of medical history.

Sounds like scabies
by: Anonymous

I have the worms under the skin in my feet (I play a lot of sand volleyball & use the showers at the gym). That is probably how I got these little suckers (literally).

Hopefully this topical cream (Lindane) kills em off and stops this insane intching. I've actually fought off the urge to itch it.

Maybe Hookworm or Tinea in your case...
by: Angie

Since you are in the sand a lot and also using public showers, it's likely that your particular condition is either a fungal infection from the showers (Tinea/Ringworm) or Hookworm (also known as Cutaneous larva migrans) from walking in the sand.


Lindane is pretty nasty stuff, and isn't really for those two conditions I've just mentioned. Did you doctor prescribe it for you? Are they certain you have scabies?


If you don't find that the Lindane does the trick, you may want to consider these other possibilities.

it is a ring worm
by: Nina Co. Brown

I had the same problem as you all. i even had black specks on my skin that itched and made these really ugly bumps. it is a ringworm. When we hear ringworm we think of the traditional raised up red ringworm. There are alot of different types. they also take on different shapes and appearances. Its not actually a worm it is a fungus. I thought i had morgellons disease but this is all it is. If doctors would take the time out to research and stop being close minded they could figure it out.

Hair like worms
by: MysticAura

Hi crystal
i have the same exact worms and more! I have had them 30 years at least.
get yourself to an infecteous disease doctor. Take in specimens in alcohol, and ask your regular Doctor and any Doctor who will listen to look under your skin for themselves. They are a louse of some sort.
check and see if there isn't more types of worms. I have black spets and other worms myself. The specks are Leishmaniasis, from mexico. Take Care and good luck!

lesions & live hairs
by: Anonymous

You think it's a hairball from your pet? Take another look. Get yourself a hand-held micriscope on ebay and be prepared. In certain cases, take a look in the center of the knotted, entwined hairs. See the little see thru monster in the center staring back at you? See the little creates on all the hairs? It's here, it's real, and what are we to do when I've went to 8 doctors, (an ER doc, two dermatolosits, and regular doctors). "your delusional. There's nothing there. Stop scratching and you wont have sores". Right. So tell me "doctor" it it's my imagination, you wont mind giving me a great big bear hug, and you wont mind if I touch your things when you walk out of the room and wipe them on me. After all, I'm delusional and these things that cause these lesions to appear on their own really arent there.??!! So, you're going to send me home to go about my everyday business, no knowing if I'm contagious??? How dare you people. You call yourselves doctors?? Didnt you have to take a code when you graduated??? The CDC may of told you to say that, but really, cant you be honest? So now, here I am 3 states away from my mother, dad, daughter, two grand kids, and I guess I'll just have to make the decision to never see them again. I sure dont want to take a chance on them catching this from me. Now my leasions when they open ON THEIR OWN have a clear liquid that dries hard, and I believe they're eggs. What are we sufferers suppose to do who are trying to go on about living, however so very far away from people, what are we all going to do now that it's 90 degrees outside, and I'm suppose to go out with open sores all over my arms? On my face? The makeup is packed on so bad it's clownlike. Back to the hairs - no, they are alive. They move, they all usually have one long hair sticking out of them, right??? Yep, right. They can disguise themseelves to their surroundings. Unless you are living this hell, and have experienced them, anyone else would think you are nuts, huh!!! No, they live. I put some in peroxide last night, tried to climb up the glass side of the jar they were in. So, sufferers, this is a few things you should be working on: Get on ebay and get yourself a hand help microscope. Keep what you can, but there is no guarantee any doctor will admit they are living things. "They're nothing but skin and blood" MY A**. Of course, this b****ch that calls herself a dermatologist didnt even use a microscope, just walked up and said "nope, nothing there"! Now, how about a drug test? And, she lied through her teeth (two doctors did that work together) on my visit report (thought we caught from work since husband was bit in the ass by something when he was bending over three times cleaning a room. No doctors admit this, no coverage. I tried to have a stool sample analyzed. WILL CONTINUE BELOW

feel your pain
by: Anonymous

Seattle skin doctor - I would be very interested in your study. I live close and would very much like to solve this nightmare.
I'm pretty sure that I have this: human hair-like worms that are on my privates and in my hair that will not go away with an herbal parasite medicine or doctor prescribed Vermox, bruises, liver-spot type brown patches of skin (my dermatologist has even done a biopsy since they look assymetrical and cancer-like), red blood-blister-like spots on various parts of my body. I think my teenager has it but don't want to freak him out and not have a normal life. I have only told two people but they do not know the full, gorey details.
I am afraid of what to do around family, friends, and work situation (I work around kids). I don't want them to get it but I need to work. Besides, no one would believe me especially if doctors don't. Any ideas on how to handle that??? Desperate and totally sane.

freaking out

i think i have this as well. I thought I was going craxy until I read this. please let me know what you find out.

Aug 12, 2011
any1 also have these symptoms?
by: Been there

This sounds like what my husband and I have been going thru for several yrs now. However, ours build up into a core. If you pull the core out, it is instant relief from the itching. If you get them all, it goes away, but leaves a terrible scar. Sometimes, if u go back to that spot later, there will be a white ball under the skin u can pop out. I find many black ones as well, as if they are ones that have died. It is almost as if they are causing hair folicles to not let the hair come out of the skin, but to keep growing to build up a core. Like they feed on it or something. I have found tea-tree oil to work quite well. I think they spread by the blood that pours out once you've removed the core. So be sure to wash and sanitize all areas that come in contact with any blood. We haven't stopped getting them, but we also have found that when our stress levels decrease, they alomst completely go away. Someone said they are "worry-warts'. It kind of makes sense as we were doing well dealing with them, almost completely gone, then we had a house fire, and they appeared like crazy. So, who knows, just see if reducing your stress level helps you any. Good Luck!

Parasidic Hyperinfections and Autoinfections
by: MysticAura

Hi its me again some four months later! I have been researching parasites myself because I was told I was delussional. I found that just walking outside with no shoes can cause parasidic hyperinfections, Strongylitis stercoralis. Or worse Tapeworms, Cystericousis. Or Filaral type worms in the blood. Its a NIGHTMARE and I want to wake up! Put the bugs in clean jars with alcohol. Then start looking at parasidic Hyperinfections and autoinfections for the worms that look like the ones your getting from under your skin. I have a magnifier thats 10 percent. I take it with me to my doctors and he looks. Regular labs can not diagnose skin parasites, only the CDC can, and its a process. Ivermectin and albudazole at the PUbMed sites treats all skin infestations and the ones in your blood. I am scared myself and I dont want to freak anyone else out but its most likely you all have them in your blood, lungs, and they are deadly. Get help and keep going Doctor to Doctor with the Jar of bugs until someone helps you and listens. Also print out the Strongyloid Stercoralis and take it with you. Normal Doctors no nothing about parasites. Internist no more than most. God Bless all of you! MysticAura

I don't know what is going on but for some reason I have been itching in the private spot. So what do I do I go in the bathroom thinking I need to use it and when i wiped i looked down and saw little white rice looking worms. I am already 12 and I am going through this. I am hoping there is a way of getting rid of it. I also start school in a week and 6 days so wish me luck it's gone by then :)

White Worms In Vagina
by: Angie

Don't be feeling too scared. White worms in the vagina or anus are NOT uncommon in children and you don't need to panic.

Threadworms and pinworms are intestinal worms that lay eggs around the warm openings of the anus and sometimes vagina.

I would suggest that you tell your mother about the worms so that you can either get some medicine from the pharmacy for eliminating them or taking a natural herbal cleanse which is also quite effective in getting rid of intestinal worms. You can tell her that Herbal Fiberblend works well.

You also want to be very careful about washing your hands and scrubbing under your nails after using the bathroom and when you wake up in the morning (especially if you have been scratching).

You should also wash hands before eating or touching food if you are helping to prepare it.

Wear undies at night and change them to clean ones in the morning after you take a bath or at least wash your bottom well, because the worms do like to crawl out at night to lay their eggs and you need to wash them away.

I know it all sounds gross, but this is nothing to be embarrassed about as it happens all the time to people so you aren't "dirty" or "weird."

If you have brothers and sisters, there is a good chance that they have worms also. It's best if everyone in the family does a cleanse, regardless of whether your mom chooses medicine or natural herbs.

I wish you all the best for the new school year!

To Scared
by: Anonymous

I hope you already had your problem solved. If not the type of worm you are describing(white rice)is a sign of tape worms which can be treated. The best thing to do would be to go to your doctors and have a stool sample analyzed. Its nothing to be embarrassed about these things happen. Oh, and if you have any animals that could be your source. Make sure your animals are dewormed also... goodluck hunny. hope all is well!

Worms
by: Anonymous

I have had horrible problems with my skin and for months have been researching. I keep coming up with Acanthocephala (spiny headed worm) but honestly, there are so many types that we have no information about and these worms seem to evolve very quickly. The Dr's either have no idea which is quite scary or they are playing dumb. I believe this is a deep subject and am amazed at what I have learned about these worms through history. Makes me think that everything I thought was right was actually wrong...

Good luck everyone =)

Feather type
by: Anonymous

I have the exact same as you all describe in depth, all except mine appear when they are out of the skin as feather type in appearance.

I can even pinpoint where I picked them up - I had been walking my dogs in the country side. through fields, through streams that ran through some fields.

I went to the ER and Dr's who's diagnosis was some kind of mental breakdown/exhaustion!!
The only thing that appears to rid them for a short time and cool down the area is Olbas Oil, which doesn't smell the best but it does the job.

I have them everywhere but mainly on my eyelids, chin, tongue, chest, private parts and really bad on my feet and toes.

Can anyone tell me please whether theirs appear to look like minute feathers when out of the body?

But I intend going to my GP very soon stating that I had brought a lot to show her but unfortunately I dropped the container that they were in.
Never mind-It's all in my mind.

Thanks for this, I don't feel mentally insane any longer but If I am honest, know worried sick for my kids etc.

Olbas Oil
by: Angie

I hadn't heard of Olbas Oil before you mentioned it, but I looked into it and it's not surprising that it is helpful to you.


Olbas Oil is a combination of essential oils that have a range of natural medicinal properties. One of those properties is that they are anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.


I'm a bit funny because I actually like the smell of those oils - although my hubby does not! :)


For those of you who are unable to locate Olbas Oil in your area, you can make your own combination of essential oils, like eucalyptus (or tea tree), peppermint, lavender, coriander, clove, etc.


If you find them too strong to use undiluted, get a bottle of carrier oil and add the other oils to it - this could be extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, apricot oil, etc.


Before applying the oils, try rinsing the skin (or soaking in the tub) with a water and sea salt combo. This can help in the healing process and also prepare the skin to receive the oils more effectively.


Thanks for the tip about the Olbas Oil. I hope you continue to improve in health.

worms
by: cadence

I've also got this. I've got terrible itching and lesions all over my body too. I can see them moving in my eye but don't actually feel anything except my vision sometimes blurrs. I have also taken some movies of the skin lesions enlarged about 5 times and can see cysts developing and multiplying. When I tried to get help no one listened and I was sectioned and locked in a mental hospital twice. I can't risk it happening again so I'm extremely worried not just for myself but my 7 year old son. I think its cysticercosis but how do i prove it? - (and prove I'm totally sane?)

White Looking Worm
by: Angie

Gene,

Can you be more specific? Are you referring to white worms under your skin or are you finding them near the anus and/or passing them in your stool?

White looking worms can be pinworms or threadworms and are easily treatable.

If you are referring to the white hair-like worm under the skin that others have described above, that is likely something different which I can't put a name to definitively.

Consider some of the suggestions above for a good internal cleanse and external treatment to see if you can get some relief and healing.

White Worms In Stool
by: Angie

Dear Simoneme,

If you are experiencing all of these issues in your bowel movements, I can't urge you enough to try cleansing your digestive system with the Herbal Fiberblend. That's precisely what it is for - to eliminate parasite worms, toxins, etc., and help heal and repair the digestive tract.


I'm sorry you haven't been receiving any adequate help, but the best we can suggest for you to do on your own is cleanse with the HFB and support your immune system through a good diet (no sugar) and some probiotics and nutritional supplements like the Florafood, BarleyLife, etc., mentioned above.


I sincerely hope you are able to do so and that you get this problem cared for soon.

Blessings,
Angie

You don't have worms
by: Anonymous

I remember when I first started seeing these symptoms all I could think it was were some sort of worm or parasite. It's been almost a year now and still can't be sure what this is but I can say it's not worms. I am pretty sure at this point that these symptoms are caused by some type of slime mold living within our body. I also notice that Morgellons has the same symptoms. There are many conspiracies floating around and can't be sure whether this is a man made disease or not but I do know that medical industry wants to ignore all of the people with these symptoms and diagnose this disease as made up or delusions. I just don't understand why they would want to ignore so many people that are suffering. It's really sad...

SALT SALT SALT!!!!!!!!!!
by: ray

I finally got rid of those darn things. Its not in your head. The Doctors are full of it!!!!! I was INSANE!!! Sores all over! I had them for at least 3 years. Tried everything. Only rite aids hand sanitizer provided relief. Didn't kill it. SALT KILLS IT. I put it on my bed,carpet,and in my shoes!!! I wash with salt. Ground it right in to my skin. If u plug the water. You wont believe what you see. The first 3 baths was scary. When they come out they want back in. Stick with it..I PROMISE!! I ate 3 teaspoons of salt too. That way my sweat tasted salty again. In 1 darn week i got rid of 95% of my sores. I can feel wind or air going into my pores. I feel so good. Oh yeah i shaved every hair on me. That way they have nothing to cling to. Its been 3 weeks now. NO new sores. Have 2 sores left. Wait til u see how quick the sores heal. PLEASE KILL THOSE THINGS!!!!! I would like to hear from someone that does it. Compare notes!!! When you put salt on your carpet. You will feel something jump from the floor and hit u once and awhile. I put 2 pairs of socks on. put salt between them when walking around the house. SEE YA GUYS. IT WORKS I DONT CARE HOW CRAZY ANYONE THOUGHT I WAS!!!! YOU WILL SEE

A living experiment
by: DCR

For starters, I'm 67 years old and until recently enjoyed good health -- with the exception of allergies, which started when I was exposed to pesticide used in spraying our house for possible termite infestation (1973).
In April, 2012, an itchy, spot appeared above the nipple area of my right breast. That progressed to the nipple area and the entire breast itches. The clear fluid which oozes (cited in another post) is part of it. Trying to minimalize potential infection, I wiped the area with hydrogen peroxide. The fluid hardened immediately to something akin to spray foam insulation and I've found only one generic baby wipe that will break through the barrier!
Over time I began seeing the thin, white worms after bathing and drying the area. Then they appeared in other areas: face, eyes, nose, mouth.
I have a hand-held magnifier and one morning, feeling itchy skin on my face, took clear packing tape and pressed it to the area. What I saw was definitely not cloth fibers or dead skin (although some of each were present, as well).
I was seeing white, wormlike "critters" and what looked like small, white eggs.
Recently, after applying a natural tears lubricant, I discovered eggs in my left eye. I immediately called for an appointment with my opthalmologist who, after using drops, dye, and his fine-tuned instruments, declared there were neither foreign bodies nor insects, etc. in either eye but that I did have a serious case of "dry eyes." I'll not argue that. Mucous seems to be a requirement for these "critters" to survive.
The comments about adding SALT to the diet, as well as sprinkling it on the carpet and adding it to bathwater are interesting, since for at least four months before this infestation began, I followed medical wisdom and began limiting my sodium intake. I agree with another poster made a comment to the effect that "Maybe what I thought was right is actually wrong!

Experiment P.S.
by: DCR

Meant to add that I've started vacuuming daily...showering daily...changing the bed linens weekly & vacuuming the mattress cover & bed frame at that time...using paper towels to dry my hands...using bath towels & washcloth only once before laundering them...wearing clothes only one day before putting them in the laundry... vacuuming my rocker/recliner, couch, computer chair, computer keyboard, and chord organ keyboard daily. All of this is very time consuming and saps my energy, but so does living with this infestation.
It also seems eating peppermint candy has had an effect on curtailing the activity (itch).

Clean The INside First
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Hi DCR,

Thanks for sharing your own experiences and discoveries. Remarkable story about the Hydrogen Peroxide - I've never heard of it reacting that way before!

It will be interesting to hear if the salt baths, etc., help you. I often suggest that people try soaking in a bath with sea salt, but the other suggestions by Ray may be beneficial too.

It's not surprising that the peppermint candy has seemed to help you. Peppermint oil has natural anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties.

That's one of the reasons I'm always encouraging people to cleanse the INSIDE by using an herbal cleanse and beneficial supplements. If you want real results, you have to tackle this from the inside out.

All this constant cleaning doesn't seem like it will be worth the effort if the source of the problem is internal.

Remember when?
by: DCR

In the 1950s, there was an epidemic of head lice in my elementary school. The county health nurse brought out a purple light (ultra-violet?) and each child was called into a dark room where their scalp was examined, under the light.
If that worked 60 years ago, it seems to me the same technique could be successfully utilized to examine the skin of individuals experiencing the symptoms of worms or other "bugs" on their body. I just can't understand the reluctance of the medical profession to identify, research, and find ways to treat or eliminate this scourge.

Medical Profession Reluctance...
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

I've been asking myself that same question for years. The only conclusions I can come to are...

1. They just don't care.

2. There is no money in it.

3. If there's not a patented potion (prescription) for it, it won't get any attention.

4. They aren't educated on the subject and can't be bothered to do the research themselves.

None of those explanations are flattering, but I haven't come up with any others that make better sense.

Sadly, we're on our own - which may be for the best if we proceed with discovering natural remedies that don't have negative side effects attached to them.

Angie, in response to your comments about the effectiveness of cleaning my environment: I would compare it to finding bats in the living area of your home. You would, naturally remove them ASAP, but you would also search for and block any and all possible means of entrance.
If these "critters" and their eggs -- which get under fingernails and are frequently found on my computer keyboard -- are also in the carpet and fabric of furniture, then I need to keep that population to a minimum while I work to cleanse my system of them, as well.

Cleaning Your Environment
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Hi DCR,

I didn't mean to imply that you shouldn't clean your environment. Of course, that is natural, practical, and necessary that you would.

My comments were more in line with your analogy of finding and blocking the "entrance."

You mentioned that "All of this is very time consuming and saps my energy," which I completely understand and see so many people focusing on rigorously cleaning their home (sometimes obsessively) without "blocking the entrance."

If you have an internal fungal overgrowth or parasite infestation, it won't matter how much you clean your environment. My concern is that your time and energy would be better spent cleaning inside YOU than inside your house. :) I hope that clarification makes more sense.

Of course, some people actually DO live in a hazardous environment - moldy home, bird mite infestation, etc. In these cases, dealing with the environment is equally important.

Diatomaceous earth (food quality)
by: DCR

Has anyone tried this product? What was your experience? My sister recommended it, but she has used it only for outdoor pest control.
Today was an experience I don't want to repeat! Went to a dermatologist (new building, big clientel, etc.) and, with captured "critters" as evidence, was told my oozing, sticky sores and the specimens were only evidence of my skin trying to "regenerate itself."
They wanted to give me an injection for the itching but with my tendency to allergic reactions to drugs of any kind, I declined.
So, I am to soak the afflicted areas (compress or dip) in a solution of aluminum sulfate tetradecahydrate/calcium acetate monohydrate 3x daily. (12 pack/$13)
Additionally, I was given a Rx for Flucinonide ointment, which I am to apply 2x daily. ($45)
The most interesting (terrifying) part was being told that I merely have a case of "acute dermatitis," and then overhearing the Dr. instruct the medical records person (in the examination room) to note "Morgellons" on my chart -- a word I had not used!
The salt bath soaks (every-other-day) seem to be helping, so I will continue them, too.

Diatomaceous Earth
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Hi DCR,

Wow! That is pretty amazing that the doctor used the term Morgellons to the records person, but tried to fob you off with a generic diagnosis. What's really interesting is that he knew the term at all! Hopefully word is spreading and perhaps the main stream medical profession will finally start to address these concerns more seriously.

Meanwhile, so glad that the salt baths are helping. What a blessing!

I haven't used the food grade Diatomaceous Earth around the home myself yet - though I did use some for an internal cleanse several years ago. Others have posted about using it with (and without) success for various parasitic concerns.

To find their comments, first go up to the top right of the page and type in Diatomaceous earth in the search box.

Then when you get the results, you can go to each page where someone has left a comment in that regard. Some pages are really long, so a short cut for finding the precise post on the page is to go up into your browser (usually under the "edit" dropdown menu) and look for the "find" button.

This will open a little tool where you can then type in Diatomaceous earth again and it will find all the instances on the page where the phrase is used. Hope that helps!

Keep your spirits up and do keep us posted.

Delusional, are we?
by: DCR

As many -- if not most -- of you may be aware, the CDC issued a statement: "No common underlying medical condition or infectious source was identified, similar to more commonly recognized conditions such as delusional infestation." This statement indirectly concludes that the CDC found Morgellons to not be a disease of any kind, but a psychological disorder. Further clarification about this study on the CDC's own website states, "This comprehensive study of an unexplained apparent dermopathy demonstrated no infectious cause and no evidence of an environmental link.”
That edict effectively ties the hands of doctors who attempt to treat the condition because of possible liability suits.
Maybe if/when those at the top of the CDC develop the condition, a new attitude and appreciation for the reality of it will emerge.

Hi,
If I was dealing with the worms common to the intestinal tract, there would no longer be a problem, as I would have been treated for them. These are under the skin and often emerge, causing sores that are slow to heal or not at all...in some people, the sores contain colored fiber-like strands. Believe me, every time I show a doctor the specimens I collected (three white with a "question mark" appearance and several which look like small grains of sand), their expression changes from concern to confusion, and they quickly write a Rx for some topical dressing and dismiss me. None of the doctors showed any interest in examining the specimens beyond a quick look, and none can identify them for me.

If it's true...
by: Anonymous

There is a reason doctors doubt conditions, lack of evidence. If you take your car into a mechanic, and describe a problem it's the same, they investigate. Skin problems suck. I have a weak immune system so I know. Here's a pratical tip. Cleanse the things that enter your body, all things, both internal and external. Filter ALL your water, not just for drinking, but also bathing, showering and washing, as well. This one step I can't stress enough. More toxins in public waters than you could ever believe. Next, use all natural clear soaps and shampoo. No dye or strong scented stuff. Lastly wash all clothes often, especially bedding. This WILL help. That is a garuntee :)

I'm a doctor with this REAL disease
by: Tonya

I have had this for three years now and it is killing me. My 13 doctors all treat me like I'm crazy even though I have new,terrible, real medical problems from it. So I have studied it on my own. I am convinced that it is an insect larva. The microscopic white granules are eggs or first instar larvae. Here is a huge diagnostic problem: the next instar is clear! They can infect anything and easily penetrate the skin. The live in colonies that are the shape of larger worms or fly pupa, probably to ward off predators. As they grow, they can be any color, likely taking on the color of their major food source. So, they look like clear, white, or colored thread! Yes, they move, just very slowly so it is hard to see. Next instar has tiny black, brown, tan, heads and short bodies (?female)OR long slender head, more commonly black, with short white or clear tail (?male.) Characteristics: larva lay eggs in sticky white or yellowish blobs; another larval stage bears live young; they are extremely sticky, gelatinous covering makes them practically unkillable, as nothing can penetrate to reach the body, and in solution they blow a bubble and sit inside or just put heads in to breathe; they can escape ANY container (I have seen them go right through wood, stone, laminate, metal, and even glass; they are voracious eaters and reproducers; they have killed every other insect on my property; they are now damaging trees and cactus, damaging my home by penetrating all surfaces; they go through a complete life cycle (in Arizona) around twice a year; they become active and crawl out onto the skin with heat, light, stimulants, and when you are tired; keep cool, clean, cover all skin (long pants & sleeves)to control sores; bathe in hydrogen peroxide, epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda, ethyl alcohol, eucalyptus oil combo and literally trillions will come out; all larval stages can produce hairs or fibers and they live inside and travel along outside of it, piles of "hair" act just like spider webs; one stage (?which one) looks just like a miniature feather; they cause dry eye because they plug the oil and tear ducts, cause constant nasal irritation, come out of the mouth and lips profusely, causing tooth and jaw bone damage, damage all endocrine glands,damage electrical system of the heart, cause interstitial lung damage, damage the filtering capability of the kidneys, block the portal veins in the liver, obstruct the lymphatic system causing severe edema, do severe neurological damage, weaken bone and cartilage, and lastly cause severe skin problems.

I'm a doctor with this REAL disease
by: Tonya

I believe that infected people are susceptible due to underlying immune deficiency or from conditions that cause immune suppression. The body attempts to fight it (elevated white blood cells/eosinophilia) but in micromyiasis (infection with larva) the larva are masters at downregulating the immune system (ie. shutting off the response.) In time, it does not recognize the larva at all and the host is more susceptible to infection with other larva due to low immune response and the fact that they are loaded with pheromone producing larva!!! Anyway, I am trying to identify the species of bug now. I think it is a tiny moth. I firmly believe that this is the cause of Morgellons syndrome and I also link it to feather plucking disorder in parrots. If I find the diagnosis and ultimate cure for myself before it kills me (I have severe multi-organ damage and doctors still don't give a shit), I will get it out to all of you fellow sufferers as fast as I can! Wish me luck.

It's real I have it. They call it Morgellon's disease. There it's no definition in any book for it and they are not looking for it.they will call you mental. I have it and it he's literally ruined my life.my family thinks i'm insane and every doctor I've ever told about it thinks it's a psychiatric problem but it's real. It's a parasite.I was cured then I returned to my old environment and reinfected myself.I bought a microscope and examined them but I have no clue what they are.I can tell u how to cure yourself. Go to the store and buy rid lice treatment.I say rid because u have to use permithrin. You can get a script for permithrin from a doctors if you tell them you've been in contact with someone with scabies. I don't know any natural cures and permithrin ifs a carciginic so when your ready to year yourself you have to be committed new bed sheets everyday get lice spray containing permithrin and spray allyour environment s , super dry all your close and if you just get the lice shampoo shampoo everyday leave it on all over your body while you sleep a couple times leave your embodiment if you can. Take immune boosting vitamins treat yourself like you have a severe svabies infestation and you and everything you Owen everyone you've been around like they are infested.listen to your body massages and rubbing out pains is necessary.do not scratch and scar your skin once this is gone your body will heal.reinfection if a hundred times worse.so fight it permithrin will kill them it will take time try to

Epidemic
by: Tonya B

The main recurring theme that I have read about on every website and blog concerning Morgellons syndrome is the fact that doctors have labelled all sufferers with this disease as "delusional." I have also been watching these sites and watching the constantly growing number of people with the affliction. It seems to me that with numbers now in the millions, that this illness can and should be called an epidemic. Okay, so doctors are telling us that we are all delusional. My question is this. Why on earth aren't all of the doctors severely concerned about the epidemic of delusional patients? Is there something in the water that is making us all crazy? If the AIDS epidemic taught the medical community anything, it should have taught them that just because you can't explain a patient's disease process with existing medical knowledge doesn't mean that the disease doesn't exist!! Did you know that patients with HIV/AIDS were all told that they were crazy in the beginning also? When the HIV virus was first discovered, it was a brand new disease. The virus itself was so tiny that it could only be properly identified with an electron microscope. When scientists finally uncovered the truth and revealed the unimaginable destruction that this virus could produce, it was too late for so many people who died being told that they were also crazy and they were at fault for being gay. The point that I am trying to get across to the CDC and the medical community as a whole is that you must either find the cause of the epidemic of delusional disorder that you think all of us have developed, or you must acknowledge that we might just have a real disease that is brand new and has not been discovered or identified yet. Either way, get to work finding a treatment and ultimately, a cure.

Help ToGet Rid of Hair-like Worms
by: Anonymous

Hair-like black things in my home and my hair,even my private parts are hookworms. You need to buy GSE, grapefruit Seed Extract liquid concentrate by NutriBiotic. Also buy Kolorex, Advanced Candida Care a RedLeaf Horopito Extract. A product of New Zeland. I was advised by a man that has been in the nutrition and health industruy 23 years. He has helped people who have been infected for many years and they finally got rid of them. I had 4-5 different parasites and I'm finally getting rid of them. It's best not to eat sugar as the parasites thrive on them. Go to Nutrition World or other Nutrition store. You will have to check your pets for worms also and treat them The house will need to be fumigated by a professional with professional products. Make sure they don't go to Lowe's or Home Depot or stores that carry fumigating products. It must be a better commercial product. I would ask the fumigating company about what to do to fumigate car. You have to shower or take a bath regurlary. Epson Salt baths help. All clothes that you wear daily should be washed. All bedding needs washed weekly. Clean pajamas every night after bathing. Wash hair also. The black things will still try to come up into your hair. I have shoulder length hair a turn my head over sink and comb with a fine-toothed comb. Begin at the roots combing forward over and over again. Keep shaking hair and combing many times. This helps get them out of your hair nd rinse them down the sink. Also do not shake your dirty clothes and spread the hookworms. Keep house vaccumed as much as possible. Use sponge mop with a tiny bit of bleach to mop floors. Don't use a regulars mop with alot of strings as they can hide in it. I got a perscription from my doctor for abendozole for parasites. It helped but I still had to use other parasites cleanses. I finally found the above mentioned products and finally am getting rid of the parasites. Also pray and ask for the help of Jesus who is our deliverer and healer. It's best to stay home if possible and do not spread these parasites. God bless you.

Colon Cleansing for Parasite Worms
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

Do you mean "Bear Paw Garlic?" If so, then yes it is effective, but if you are that infested with parasites, you most likely need more than just the Bear Paw Garlic.

What colon cleanse are you currently using? How long does it say to use the product?

It does take a while for a full cleanse, so don't give up the cleansing process too quickly. You want to be certain that you are completely free so that you don't keep getting re-infested.

You mentioned that you are in pain. What kind of pain and have you only started having pain since taking the colon cleanse?

Be sure to follow all the basic guidelines for eliminating parasites and getting your body back in control and in good health.

  • Proper Cleanse
  • Proper Diet (cut out sugars and processed foods)
  • Proper Boosting of the Immune System (probiotics, essential fatty acids, and whole food supplements)


When you get rid of all the nasties, and build up the good stuff, your body does the rest. It's not an overnight miracle, but IT WORKS! :)

CVS Super Colon Cleanse and Bear Claw
by: Angie from allaboutparasites.com

You poor dear!

Well, I'm not really familiar with Bear Claw in the sense of supplements. (I do know of a good dessert called by that name - grin.) I've heard of Devil's Claw and Cat's Claw and, of course, Bear Paw like I mentioned earlier, but I can't tell you anything further about Bear Claw.

As for the CVS Super Colon Cleanse, I looked it up and checked out the ingredients for you. Although it does have a few cleansing herbs, it doesn't really sound like it's going to be effective enough for a condition as severe as yours.

You still haven't mentioned where your pain is or what kind of pain you are experiencing. Is it digestive pain (stomach, intestines, etc)? Joint pain?

My suggestions for someone with the limited description you've provided would be the following:

  • Composure - to help calm those nerves naturally and perhaps start to ease some of that pain
  • Herbal Fiberblend - a much more advanced colon cleanse with a wider range of parasite fighting herbs
  • AIMega - to help balance the body and work on the external skin condition as well as help alleviate your pain
  • BarleyLife - to nourish your body, repair damaged cells, and boost your overall health and well-being


There ARE more supplements I could suggest that would help, but if you can manage those above, I think you'd be well on your way to getting the results you want.

Don't give up hope. If you need someone to talk to, we're here.

Blessings,
Angie

This is a MANMADE disease!!
by: Ian

Hello everybody, I am both relieved and horrified by the sheer number of you who are infected by this demonic scourge. I have been infected with this for over TEN YEARS. I have pinpointed long ago the exact time and place when I contracted this; in a third-floor apartment in the bathroom. I was an intravenous drug user back then, and one day while using I looked in the mirror and noticed a red, irregular and itchy patch on my cheek. This was dotted with white bumpy spots and I immediately began tampering with it using nail clippers. I am somewhat of a sufferer of OCD, and within a few weeks I had discovered several things. The most important of which was that when I got one of these sores there was always present somewhere near the center a white core. Having a very high tolerance for pain, I would use the nail clippers to get ahold of this core and pull it out. This is intensely painful, and most times the core can only be exposed by ripping away layers of skin tissue. This has resulted in very bad scarring on my face, legs, arms, and hands. What I noticed is that when the core is pulled out, the pain of the sore is immediately relieved and will then heal. These are up to an inch long, white, rubbery, and vary from very thin to 1/16" thick. It leaves a hole that bleeds profusely. So for all these years I thought that what I had was a rampant infection of HPV, because of a horrifying battle I had with a planters wart on the tip of my index finger. This thing fought with me for a year, and the stretchy white 'roots' behaved very similarly to this current problem. I had not paid much attention to the fact that while I was clipping and pulling skin off all these years, many times I will hit a spot where when I pull It feels lik I am pulling hair out by the roots. But there is no hair growing there, and I can pull several of these hairs out from one area. Unbelievable! I finally, after ten years, started to wonder why this was, and looked very close at the nail clippers. What I saw was something that looked like a wavy human hair. But it was moving!! This freaked me out so bad I almost went insane. That was when I found you guys on this site..Also, I did ask my doctor at the time about this and he treated me as if I were a delusional junky skin picker. I believe it is man made and somehow related to the UN agenda 21, and the Codex Alimentarius. Also, someone suggested molluscum contageosum as a possible Dx because of the 'core', but the google images didn't match. Everybody please continue this thread, hopefully we can beat this bug/robot before I set myself on fire.

Candida or unspecific fungal/yeast
by: Anonymous

I it sounds to me like Candida or another type of fungal/yeast infection. Most people think that a cutaneous candida infection only affects those who are over weight where there is swear and moisture. This is the case a lot but a if does affect hpeople so all sizes and can be on tsh face, hands, head, etc.

I never had a vaginal yeast infection and always had clear slim, I believe I contracted candida while in the hospital during a 360 fusion kananectony if my lumbar. Soon afterwards during my healing I noticed I would have insational cravings for sugar, I would search for sugar all hours of the night and day like a crack addict. I could hardly walk burin would find a way to in order to get my fix.
Well years went by and I started having digestive issues, skin issues, vaginal yeast infections and other symptoms. I was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, AS, and had to do on strict diet. I was always a healthy eater and used natural healing methods my whole life The skin up issues progressed to what you have described, I did research and saw a great dermatologist who specialized In auto immune disorders, she diagnosed me and gave me info regarding natural ways to heal it, as well as modern medical.
Here are a few simple things you can change that makes a dramatic difference. First of all go ahead and get a prescription anti fungal/yeast topical ointment to knock it out so you can the. Use more natural ways to control it.

Candida continued
by: Anonymous

Cut out refined sugars, enriched flour products, and limit simple carbohydrates, you will need to be easy on your lifer if you choose to use the prescription anti fungals as well as the die off toxins from dying candida, ie; complex carbohydrates (whole grains!)Green leafy veggies, lots of water with lime or lemon squeeze, and milk thistle. Supplements should include, garlic, (raw garlic if you can stand it, milk thistle, magnesium, zinc and calcium multi vitas, super b complex, probiotics(25-30 billions), 2-3 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (Bragg's), biotin. Try to stay away from lacrosse, try almond milk, eats fermented foods like, kefir (great alternative to yogurt) Kim chee, pickled, sauerkraut. You can start by doing all if this or just minor changes over time, exercise is great and remember to bathes daily, oxygen baths,(with hydrogen per) are great brush teeth (scrape tongue) and change bedding daily.

Good luck and don't give up.

OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER
by: Donna

Reading all the posts has been encouraging and helpful Thank you all I felt alone and depressed and hopelessly helpless My Doctor says that I have ocd even though I took pictures, samples, all the usual that most do I only ended up frustrated and angry At this point I am to see a dermatologist which I think I will decline This is such a debilitating scourge First I was told I had head lice, then I was told I had scabies then I was told I had obsessive compulsive disorder Hummmmmmm Then I was told that I should see a dermatologist Several things that have helped me (I think) is (Toni`s Recipe) 1 tsp powdered mustard mixed with 1 tsp water and mixed well Let sit for about 10 minutes A little goes a long way Apply to your face, neck, eyebrows, etc DO NOT GET IN YOUR EYES The little critters surface and burn to death I use a nail file and scrape them off DEAD The mustard water can be used with your shampoo too Rinse rinse rinse then put baking SODA on my hair and scalp, let sit maybe an hour and use a tight toothed comb or nail brush and brush entire head putting the goop onto a paper towel The glue on the hair, and scalp is so hard to get off This takes time but is worth it If you wear glasses, or sunglasses I keep a large jar beside my chair and put my glasses into it with straight rubbing alcohol I get the rubbing alcohol from the dollar store for $1.00 If you wear earrings be sure to put them into the jar too I overlooked this and I think I helped things along Also rings, bracelets, necklaces anything that touches your skin or hair, needs to be put into the jar several times a day The little things hide I use saline eye drops twice a day from walmart Use a cheap spray bottle with 3 quarters cup distilled water and 5 drops of pure tea tree oil which I have found is cheapest at walmart and spritz whenevery I feel crawling hair, face, legs, face When I cannot change the bed every day I will spritz everything well with a cheap spray bottle with plain water and javex 3 to 1 Some days I feel like just giving up it seems I am so isolated and alone (by choice) as I do not have anyone to talk to I don`t want my friends to think that I am crazy It has been months since I have gotten out socially Thank you and I hope that this will help a fellow sufferer GOD BLESS

Long termer with same problem
by: Niki

I have been told Lyme and Lupus. I could go on and on but I would tell you that sunblock every day every time you shower will help and moisture to wipe off make up - use a lotion. This stuff or lil bug lives and breeds itself on dry skin -so if your scalp dries out expect to see them on your scalp and hair if your skin dries out expect them on the dryness and not just water moister -you have to have sustainable moisture. I have been fighting this battle for six years and still no long-term answer. Doctors ***practice ***medicine and I have not found one with an answer yet. I use the 30 SPF at night in a 60 in the day, and every time I sweat I reapply. The sunblock keeps them at bay from reentering the skin and allows them to be washed off with the residue in the shower. When I have extra time I wipe down completely with a lotion before entering the shower- that way I can wipe off more of them instead of them running down to places I don't wanted to be when I'm in the shower. Good luck and good health to you all!

I have had all the above!!!!
by: Tree

I know your pain! I have 3 kids that have picked up the parasite as well. My husband too, even if he refused to admit it. I not only have ben told I am "delusional". Thought I was going crazy!!! I wouldn't leave my house only to buy bleach and cleanser to scrub my house down every day. I had hope,that I could eliminate it from spreading to my family. I had (spit off) it would spit out of my skin and shoot across the room! Sometimes I didn't even know it was happening. I went to E.R. Specialist, family D.R. and shrink. only to find out That I not crazy, and the creams help but they wont prescribe enough to rid for good. there is always a micro few some where that still where there and started all over. So I went and Bought permethrin concentrate made a mix for a spray bottle.( Fleet Farm) And I went and did room by room every sofa, bed mattress wiped every chair floor remote,carpet. ect... I even found I could add a sm. amount to my cleaners (pinesol, Mr. clean) now you need to be careful!!! and make sure you measure correctly! It will keep on working for 3mo. I had to take all my animals to the vet, because they all had it to. The vet informed me that a lot of parasites can live on synthetic fibers. I.E.(carpet, sofa, pillows,) so it may not be on you, it may be in your things. Going back and fourth. I added Tea tree oil to all shampoo's, conditioners lotions. Everyone pre rinsed there mouth with peroxide then brushed teeth 3 times day. I gave all a probiotic, dog's get Iams with probiotic in it. You will feel 1000% better! Lot of work don't give up! And if you have the littlest bit of it coming back make sure to do it all over till it's gone! It will go!!!!! Go out into the sun!!!! Take care

This will cure your problem
by: Linisin2it

I think I’m cured! It took me a month to figure out what was going on. It started with little white dots and when they grew into white string/worms on my skin which were biting/leaving marks and made my skin feel like I had rolled in insulation. I washed all my clothes in hot water and you must have hotwater heater set at least 130 degrees in order to kill them. Then dry in hottest setting. You need to shower and scrub your back with vinegar and rinse it also through your hair everyday. One cup vinegar to 1/4 cup water usually works well. I then rubbed hydrogen peroxide all over my skin and let it dry. I then apply baby power or GoldBond powder to my back or any itchy areas so I don't scratch. After doing this for a week I have not seen any worms on me or in my hair. Note that when the babies hatch they come from your head. If you see any zig zap or “s” shaped fuzz like stuff coming from your head while drying your hair or notice it flying around your head it is the new babies. Check your head for any raised pimple or scab like things on your head and pull them off. It is a hard core like thing which the babies came from. Keep all this up and you will be free of them. If you are broken out with red itchy marks try using cortisone cream and it will clear up your skin. If need be, if you see a doctor say you have eczema and they will prescribe script strength cream to get rid of the broke out redness from your skin. Then start the process outlined above. Also be careful with your clothes.
I only clean a few days of clothes a head of time and then keep them in an airtight container because these things can get in your clothes causing you to itch! This will work, it did for me!

Also want to add to my last post!
by: linisin2it

I also wanted to add that you want to be sure to clean everything. I had seen these things at the high of my infestation where they were sitting on the towel bar, night stand, even saw some things that showed up on a fresh shirt that I had just put on etc. I also want to change the mixture of the vinegar. What I do is add vinegar (either white or apple) to a large measuring glass and then just add a little water so that it is not full strength so you don't burn your skin or scalp. If you have time to let it sit on you for ten minutes or so even better. I always only wear my clothes once because I notice when things were at there worse at my house, I had put freshly cleaned clothes that I hung for a couple days would itch me if I put them on and they had not been kept in a container. It gets better as you go as long as you keep up with the cleaning, the washing, the cleaning of sheets daily. If you cannot clean them every night at least put in the dryer on hottest heat for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Also I found that the clothing tape rollers I used constantly to remove stuff from my clothes, my back, from tables or anywhere I could to eliminate whatever this stuff was that not only was on me but was showing up in my house. I wonder if this stuff is bothering my dog because even though he takes a heartworm pill & has flea & tick stuff on him I have been seeing him scratch himself. Not sure if your pets are bothered by this as well. NOTE: Do yourself a favor and go out and buy a 5X mirror. That was the only way that I could finally see what was going on in my hair. Also after I felt safe I had my mother look through my hair with a magnifying glass and see had seen some of those white dots and some things attached to my scalp that were making my scalp itchy. First 2 weeks I did not have my hotwater heater set hot enough. Needs to be 130 or above in order to kill this stuff in the washing machine because I would see this stuff floating out of the machine and stuff was building up on the ceiling above my washing machine. I even notice a hair like worm still moving before I had put it in the dryer. Check your hotwater heater setting.
Above 130 is best! I am also taking black walnut pills that I got at a vitamin store which is good at killing parasites in your body. I am going to a holistic doctor next week to tell my sorted tale and see what kind of stuff he suggests. Do yourself a favor and start taking samples before you get rid of this stuff. I failed to because I thought it was just lice because I had never had before and then as I started describing it to family members they said doesn't sound like lice, something else was obviously going on. I have some proof left but not when my place was at its wildest (jungle) I was afraid this was going to be my life because it went on so long and no one could come around me. I told my parents if this goes on much longer I'm toast. I got it from a salon because I saw stuff floating out of a woman's hair having it dried and later saw the same thing happening to my head, then I noticed these little white dot things that you could almost miss if you didn't look close enough. Started putting things together. I have my Mom check my head weekly to make sure there isn't anything on my back or the back of my head that I can't see. Keep checking your clothes and your shirt. Use tape lint roller as much as you can to eliminate this stuff from your clothes before you put on and after you put on to rid yourself. Keep it up!

White hair like worm
by: Lucy H

I have had these worms since April 2011. I feel like I'm dying. I am now so weak I am having to use a walker. My entire body seems to have worms. At the dentist, after a cleaning, my dentist was checking my mouth and kept pulling out stringy white material. She asked me how long the sluffing had been going on. They are in my sinus. I actually saw a worm comr out of my tear duct and I swear it peed. No wonder I feel so bad, all the waste from the worms is in my body. Also have white moth like parasites that land on skin & just melt into skin. I was told it was Morgellans disease. The parasite in my hair clips hair @ 1/4 from scalp leaving end of hair intact & injects tiny eggs into hair root. When hair grows out it is already a worm hair. They move all the time and hair is falling out that has been clipped. It looks just like a tiny scorpion.
I've been admitted twice cause the dr's think I'm nuts. The others keep giving me antipsychotic drugs which I don't take. I take a very sharp thumbnail and slice what are bigger in half. They come out in stool, but are still moving. Also taking black walnut shell elixir (Dr OZ) 5 drops in 1/2 cup cold beverage. There is no flavor so I take with water. Anybody out there have any ideas please let me know. I have a feeling I don't have much time left
