Burrowing Parasite In Cyprus
What is this burrowing parasite in Cyprus?
It burrows. It makes an itch. If I scratch the scab, blood SPURTS out. I think it has accessed a blood vessel.
When the blood spurts out, I think babies (small black specks) come out too.
And then obviously they live under my fingernails and I am the vector. They are very sticky and create a micro-habitat under my nails.
I have managed to get rid of lots of lesions, but the specks live in the fatty rim around the lesion.
I would really appreciate knowing I am not the only person suffering from this, and also how to treat it.
I do not have a bath and it is to cold to shower where I live. I expect that is how they got access.
Have you been to see a doctor about your lesions and this possible burrowing parasite in Cyprus? Have they ruled out scabies as a possiblity?
What have you done so far to get rid of the lesions and their cause? Even though you don't have a bath, you can give yourself a "sponge bath" to help cleanse your skin.
Try getting some anti-parasitic and anti-fungal essential oil - like tea tree oil, or oregano oil, or neem oil. Put several drops of the oil in a large bowl of clean warm water and then use a cloth to gently cleanse your body.
Can you get probiotics in Cyprus? These are the friendly bacteria that live in our bodies to help us fight off infection, parasites, unfriendly bacteria, etc. so that we have a healthy immune system.
Probiotics are things like acidophilus, bifidum, and longum, to name a few. You can probably order Florafood
and have it posted to you if you are unable to locate any good quality probiotics locally.
It's always important to take plenty of probiotics when fighting off any type of parasite or infection because it gives your body more of what it needs to win the fight.
I hope maybe some other visitors from Cyprus will come along and comment on your question about being the only one affected by this particular burrowing parasite.
I know others have written in about burrowing parasites from different parts of the world, but burrowing and itching are such common descriptions used when speaking of parasites, particularly skin parasites, that there's no real way to know if they are the same type without examination.
I hope you are able to get rid of this problem soon so that you feel better. To your good health!
