Am I Crazy Or Is Something Biting Me?

by AW

Am I crazy or is something biting me?

About 2 weeks ago I started to feel itchy and like something was biting me. I looked all around my bedroom for bed bugs but sleep on an air mattress.

Could not find any bugs. I didn't see any bite marks, don't have a rash...nothing.

Then it started to get worse and now I see red dots, the size of a pin small you have to search for them.

I am constantly itchy and feel them biting me all hours of the day. I feel them at home, at work, at the movies...sometimes I don't feel anything, especially if I am busy and doing work, but right now when I am typing this email in my office at work I feel them all over.

Am I losing my mind?

I have a doctor's appointment scheduled for tomorrow. I am taking epsom salt baths at night, sprayed my room with bed bug, flea and mite spray. Spray my body down with epsom salt and tea tree oil and wait for it to dry so I can go to sleep at night.

PLEASE HELP ME!! My landlord scheduled an appointment with an exterminator but he won't be here for 10 days!

Dear AW,

No, I seriously doubt you are crazy. ;~)

It definitely sounds like you are having a reaction to something in your environment. Here are some possibilities...

It could be an allergic reaction to something you've
eaten (but likely only if you are continuing to eat it in the last couple of weeks) or a new soap or detergent or some other chemical in a new product that you've recently been exposed to.

It could be that you ARE getting bitten by something like fleas or sand fleas or mites. Were you anywhere just prior to this experience where there were sand fleas? Some people have a delayed reaction long after they've been exposed. Strange, I know.

Another option is that you could have some type of internal parasite. Intestinal parasites can give you a pricking or biting sensation on your skin.

Perhaps the doctor will prescribe an antihistamine (or you can just get one over the counter) to help with the itching.

Careful with using too many bug sprays, etc., in an effort to get rid of invisible pests. You may end up just making yourself worse because of the chemicals and their effect on your immune system.

Since you already have the tea tree oil, you may want to put 15-20 drops in a spray bottle of water to spray around the place. That's a better option (and it smells good too).

I always like to boost my immune system with probiotics (good bacteria) to help it fight off whatever is ailing me. You may want to do the same.

Let us know what the doctor says once you've seen him/her.

To your good health!

To Proven Wrong...
by: Angie from

Did you try the Herbal Fiberblend as I suggested? You and your girlfriend BOTH need to do a full cleanse at the same time so you don't keep passing it back and forth between you. In your situation I would use the full cleansing protocol if I could afford it as you've been dealing with this for a while, but if you can only manage the Herbal Fiberblend and the Composure, stay with it for a few months to eliminate all stages of the life cycle. It really does work.

Not Crazy
by: Proven Wrong, Now Wht

I have this same parasite and so does my girlfriend. Tiny redish brown oval white rods and then there is a stage of skin looking flying things. They just shoot out of an arm or leg etc and just as quickly will shoot back in. What looks to be the last stage is a much larger brownish thing with long antennas. My girlfriend noticed them first and I could not fathom such a thing, thought she was losing it until I had them. They hung out on me for two nights we went to the doctor and She would not even consider the option of a parasite she decided it was a staff infection so I decided everything was fine. meanwhile my girlfriend keeps trying to show me stuff. Then they came back on me She took the time to observe every stage because she knows she isn't crazy. Anyways now we are both full blown infected. We have tried some of the remedies we have seen but nothing has eradicated them completely and if it did we just got them right back. We are not dirty people at all completely the opposite' They locked down on my leg muscles tonight on the way home, first time this has happened and I could not move my legs at all without grabbing a hold of one and squeezin the hell out of. We are at war to get our bodies back. We haven't even had sex in two months because who wants sex when you have creepy things under your skin. The peroxide just seems to piss them off and they lock down hard on my all of this is very painful, let alone embarrassing. HELP!

Please try Herbal Fiberblend
by: Angie from

Seriously, try cleaning out your system with Herbal Fiberblend at the very least, even if you don't want to try the full cleansing protocol.

I've had such great success with HFB myself for a wide range of issues and know many others that have been helped too. It has a money back guarantee, so what do you have to lose?

I honestly don't understand when people continue to suffer but won't try something so basic and effective. It boggles my mind.

Little Red Bumps From Bites At Night
by: Angie from

Hi Maggs,

You said you've been getting bitten mostly at night. Are you getting bitten at all during the day?

Quite often when you are getting bites only while you are sleeping, the culprit is bedbugs. They can be very difficult to spot. You have to look for evidence around the seems of your mattress, etc.

You may want to consider some of the natural options for doing your own pest control if you think that may be a possibility.

Are you the only one in the house being bitten? There is a possibility that your condition is actually an internal problem rather than external bites. (Believe me, I've been there!)

If that's the case, you really ought to consider an internal cleanse and some immune boosting supplements.

I'd use Herbal Fiberblend, Bear Paw Garlic, BarleyLife, and AIMega for a thorough cleanse and some nutritional support that can boost your overall health.

It's always an expense to buy supplements, I realize, but believe me, I found them well worth it! Besides, they are money back guaranteed, so you can't really lose.

Hope you are able to get rid of this biting/itching problem sooner rather than later.

I have been getting bit mostly at night and I don't know what it could be. I get red little bumps that kinda look like flea bites but are a little bigger than a flea bite. But we don't have a problem with any fleas. I been getting bit basically everywhere but manly on my arms, legs, stomach, and back. They itch all the time but manly at night when i try to go to sleep. When I get bit I never see anything at all where they bite me at.Ihave more of the problem in the bedrooms then I do downstairs. Every now and then where I scratch at it turns into a black and blue mark. I also get little tiny blisters on my hands between my fingers.
