Constant Itching And Like Bugs Crawling On Me...

by Grace Jeffries
(Knoxville, TN, USA)

I feel constant itching and like bugs crawling on me, but I do not see anything?

They seem to be on my face, private area, head, underarms and lower leg. I feel like they're even in my shoes.

Everyone keeps telling me it's me, but I don't know if they're dust mites or what. I itch, but no site of bites or sores.

What can I do to stop it?

Hi Grace,

If there are no obvious bites or sores, it is most likely you have some type of internal parasite or even toxin that is giving you this feeling of constant itching and like bugs crawling on you.

My first guess would be that you may have a severe yeast infection, also known as Candida albicans. Candida is just a fungus that lives naturally in your digestive tract, but can grow out of control and really cause distress.

If you have taken antibiotics or used birth control pills you are more likely to get a yeast infection. You can even get it just from eating a poor diet high in sugar.

If you think that may be the problem, there are natural remedies for a yeast infection cure.

The first thing to do is cut way down on any sugars. Sugar feeds the fungus and helps it to thrive and grow worse.

Also, you should take a good quality probiotic to help build up your good bacteria in your system so that it can get the fungus back under control. I recommend Florafood because it is high quality and you know you are getting the most bang for your buck.

Garlic helps to kill off Candida. If you have a hard time eating a lot of garlic each day, Bear Paw Garlic is an odorless garlic capsule that is very potent and more effective than the common garden variety garlic.

To be honest with you, Grace, if I were you, I'd give my self a thorough cleanse with Herbal Fiberblend for a few months. HFB is not the most pleasant tasting supplement, but it works wonders, in my opinion.

Since I don't know if Candida is even your problem,
Herbal Fiberblend can help your body eliminate a range of parasites, fungus, and bacteria that may be causing these symptoms you're experiencing.

As strange as it may seem, a lot of different problems have the exact same symptoms. Fixing our body can be like a mechanic fixing a car. Sometimes it's a matter of trial and error to find out what exactly is going on "under the hood."

The good thing is that most problems can be remedied naturally by cleansing the colon or digestive tract and then pumping up the immune system with a range of good quality supplements, like the Florafood and Bear Paw Garlic I mentioned, as well as the Garden Trio whole food powders which are rich in nutrition and healthy cell food.

If you find the Herbal Fiberblend isn't "potent" enough to do the job, you could try Para 90 capsules which contain a different range of anti-parasitic herbs.

One other thought for you to consider... I don't know your age, but many women from their late thirties onwards begin to suffer from hormone imbalance. This is even more true if they have had any type of hysterectomy or work done on their "female bits."

Those crazy symptoms you are experiencing can even result from low progresterone. If that sounds like you I would highly recommend the natural progesterone cream that I use called Renewed Balance.

Renewed Balance has made a huge difference for a lot of women. Frankly, I recommend it to all my friends regardless of whether they are experiencing obvious symptoms of hormonal imbalance, just because it has so many wonderful benefits.

Natural progesterone cream (not to be confused with synthetic progestins!) helps improve bone density, reduce the chances of breast cancer, endometrial cancer, etc.

You'll have to make a decision of what would be best for you to try first. There is no reason why you should have to continue to put up with the discomfort of the constant itching and feeling like you have bugs crawling on you, that's for sure!

Let me know if you have any other questions or feel that I can help further in some way.

To your good health!

Biting Sensation Solution
by: Angie from

Hi Joe,
Often the sensation of being bitten all over can be the result of an allergic reaction to something or an internal parasite. Hard to tell which.

Since you are a first responder, it's quite possible that you picked up a bacteria or parasite somewhere in your service to others.

My best suggestion to you is to get some Herbal Fiberblend and clean out your system for a few weeks with it and then keep it on hand at all times for future use.

This is what I do because I live in the tropics and teach in a few different public schools every week. I'm always being exposed to various things and I always have HFB at home so that I can nip things in the bud if I start to come down with something.

If I know a particular virus, etc., is going around, I will take it daily as a preventive measure. (That might also be a good option for you considering your line of work).

Anyway, HFB has been a really effective tool for me and I'm always recommending it to others as a safe and natural way to maintain or restore good health.

Crawling Bugs Sensations are Real!!!
by: RJ Canada

This is not an illusion - This is a real bug and the medical world is ignoring and compounding the situation by their ignorance.
I feel that it has to be a multiple situation disease like yeast infection perhaps with the HPV virus or something like that.
It is real and will be the social disease of the present since the medical world has ignored it so long it is rapidly spreading to everyone and I am going to give it to everyone that I meet so that eventually someone will take notice.
I have infected hospital personelle so that help will be found.
I will continue to greet and meet people with a smile as the bugs leave my area and infect you and everyone else.
This will be my solution - to stop hiding people and infect the medical world so that the solution can be found.

Nothing is wrong with your mind, you are feeling what your feeling. New problem in our society being ignored.
by: P. Johnson

I think that the big outbreak of bed bugs and the problem not being corrected immediately across the country, has caused a infestation of eggs of some kind to be spreader all over. Such as all public places, doctor offices, restaurants, movies, public transportation, work places. It attach to your clothes, shoes, purses, bags carried from place to place, and not knowingly to the homes. This goes on untreated. Because everyone is being told it's in your head. But, the person telling you this, is feeling the same feeling the person complaining is feeling. I have heard, this same complaint far to many times, for this issue not to be researched. Next whatever it is will start causing severe health issues. Just my opinion. Stop telling people that tell you, they are feeling something, it's in the head.

Natural Anxiety Treatment
by: Angie from

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling encouraged, but please be aware that Lexapro is a nasty drug that has nasty side effects.

There are natural and safe alternatives for combating anxiety and depression without the risks or long term damage to your organs. One of the best is Composure.

I just wanted to mention that for your sake as well as for others who may come along later and be considering anti-anxiety treatment.

All the best for your continued improvement.

I'm finally figured it out
by: Itchy girl

I tried eliminating food,medication,and products ect. Finally, I figured out what was causing the bugs crawling on me sensation. ANXIETY! My MD started me on Lexapro and I'm so much better! Thanks for the support and advice!!!❤️

by: Heather

You have BEDBUGS, heat treatment is the only thing that will kill them all even the eggs, heat has to be at least 225 degrees. But it cost around $1,500.

Steroids, etc.
by: Angie from

Hi Itchy Girl,

Thanks for the update. The steroids may certainly be helpful with the itching over the short term. If the underlying problem is a yeast overgrowth (from all the trauma to your immune system) the steroids won't solve the problem indefinitely. The cleansing and building I mentioned earlier will do the job in that case. Play it by ear and see how you go.

Response to cleansing
by: Itchy girl

My doc put me on steroids for 5 days and Zantac. I'm about to start day 2 of steroids. I'm systematically stopping one product I use at a time. To see if it's shampoo or detergent that has been old tried and true but could be the problem. Recording my food to see if something makes it worse. I will definitely do a cleansing like you suggested . Still washing everything in hot water. Did some sun bathing today and washed the dog. I will do all suggestions. Dermotogy appointment can't come soon enough. Can't afford allergist right now. But soon I hope! Thanks for all support! People close to me just don't understand!

Invisible Rash OR Allergic Reaction
by: Angie from

Hi Itchy Girl,

It sounds like it could be an allergic reaction you are experiencing. I remember well when I was a child having a reaction to Backwoods OFF. It caused incredible itching and welts!

Anyway, it's a good thing that your doctor's considering your medications as a possible cause because that is not at all uncommon.

I always feel that when all else fails a good internal cleanse and some high quality nutritional supplements to boost the immune system is the best next step.

When YOU can't figure out what's wrong, give your body what it needs and let IT figure it out for you.

By that I mean, cleanse internally with Herbal Fiberblend and feed your cells with Barley Life and AIMega.

Whatever is in your system that is causing you the constant itching of what seems to be an invisible rash, you want to get it out of your system. It could be a fungal overgrowth, a chemical reaction, a toxic overload in the body, etc.

Since you don't know specifically, a good cleanse will take a load off of your organs, detox and flush out your system, and help get your body back in balance.

Incidentally, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you discovered that the HFB and the supporting supplements took care of your need for the antihistamines. I've seen that happen before!

Keep us posted!

Invisable rash that feels like bugs crawling on me
by: Itchy girl

I'm the only one of 4 people in this house that feels like bugs are crawling on me. It's like an invisable rash and I don't know what to do. My doc said possible antihistamine over load. Took me off zertec, astelin nasel spray. No oral Benadryl only cream she said. She have me a different antihistamine called atarax for itching and Diflucan in case it was yeast. Still I itch and I'm not crazy. It seemed to all start about a month ago after I got sprayed with Deet back woods. Mosquito s were bad. I was itchy and seen a fine rash on one arm but itched every where, I showered over and over and washed all my clothes in hot water linens included. All was good for a few days and it started again only invisable rash like bugs on me. The only other exposure was poison ivy on my Hans from dog leashes. I immediately washed hands over and over and put Benadryl cream on my hands and it went away. I washed leashes, I don't sit on couches only chairs that r wiped down. I'm afraid my room mates little dog that gets on couch my have walked through something. I shower twice a day and clean my hair and this only helps for a few hours, I apply lubaderm all over. It seems to help. I'm literally going crazy ! Please help me!

Your Friend's Year Long Suffering
by: Angie from

See if you can get your friend to do a cleanse with the Herbal Fiberblend. It very well may be the thing that finally gets rid of this for her.

I only had a problem for several weeks, but I think I'd have gone mad if I was suffering for a YEAR or more. Ugh!

The Herbal Fiberblend worked for me and I wouldn't be the list bit surprised if it worked for her, too. It's safe and natural, so you don't have to worry about nasty chemicals. :)

If you can see them, possibly lice, but if you can't see them another possiblity is scabies... They burrow under the skin, lay eggs there, deficate there and you will eventually see sores and have traces on your skin from where they've been. They are most active at night time and will literaly drive you buggy so you can't sleep!
I know about them since my friend has had them for about a year now; it's strange since she's the only one in her house that has them. In my opinion I think the bugs like her skin more than others because of her sweet diet. She thinks she caught them when she slept over her sons house and on his couch. They had let a guy stay on that couch for awhile and believe he had them.
She has tried the perithrium cream that she got from the doctor 3-4 times, despite that it is a poison and i'm sure soaks into her skin and body.
I'm worried for her because I believe this stuff causes cancer. It's hard to visit with her or have her come over since I have literally freaked out when she first got them; I started to imagine them on myself! I scratched myself until I had welts. The mind is very powerful, I didn't even have them! lol.. I have searched online in hopes to help her; I've found some healthier alternatives to the poison cream to be used along with the the hot water and washing your clothes and bedding often.
You need to purchase something like BenzaRid which is a anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and anti-microbial spray. Look up BenzRid and you should be able to find their website... Spray your carpets, couches and drapes in areas you hang out. Anyplace these buggers could be hiding, including the mattress.
There is also Tea Tree Oil (not Green Tea). This stuff can be purchased in the vitamin and supplement areas of drug stores. It is very strong and is meant to be diluted with either water (for spraying) You can spray this on your skin or dilute it with an oil such as olive oil or mineral oil. I have mixed it with Aloe Vera too. Do not use this stuff straight from the bottle because it will dry out your skin like alcohol. I put a little tea tree oil in my bath and I like the smell but some people find it offensive; its smells kind of medicine like.
The strangest remedy that is supposed to kill the buggers is mustard powder. If you know you have scabies and have the scabies sores on your body do this; make a paste with water and mustard powder. (don't get near eyes) apply a small amount to the sore. It will sting and burn so don't leave it on for long, just as long as you can stand it, maybe up to 5 minutes.
Well hopefully these tips will help anyone who thinks they may have them; It can be frustrating as heck for awhile but you will get through it!

Crusted Scabies, see a knowledgeable dermatologist
by: Gayle

I saw a couple of spiders in the last 7 years. I never itched. I noticed some crusty places on my face, elbow and some bad dandruff but fixed it with creams. Then I got scabies. They were not a regular case. I have not itched much but they're are hundreds of thousands of them in my pores making nests. They have been working a long time and I never knew because I have the virus which causes cold sores, so when the bugs released the IGe chemical, I did not recognize the problem because my body could not tell me it itched. I've been to three doctors so far and plan to go to another one tomorrow. This "I feel bugs crawling on me" is becoming a epidemic. It is not medicine or old age. If you feel like you have bugs on you, you probably do have bugs crawling on you. My sister has had this condition for 10 years and many doctors have not yet found the problem. She insists it is yeast. I guess it's too hard to believe spiders are living inside her skin. It is awful. I hope the best for you.

I had a similar situation for 10 months after I traveled out of the country. First I found I had body lice which are not as easy to get rid of as the "authorities" say because they are immune to almost everything. I tried chemicals to no avail. Here's what helped me. Turn up your water heater to it's highest setting. Then wash your clothes in hot water on the longest cycle. Add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of vinegar to the wash cycle. When you dry your clothes, add 1/4 cup of diatomaceous earth to them.
Then I bought a small chest freezer for about $250 at Home Depot. I then froze my clothes for seven days before I wore them again - including bed sheets and pillow cases. The lice feel like a small sesame seed. I bought a large jug of cooking oil. I stood in in the shower and spread it all over my body, including my hair and left it on overnight. It kind of felt like getting a spa treatment. I did this every two days for two weeks. I have continued to treat my clothes with the hot water, vinegar and freezing because I don't want a resurgence of the beasts. It takes a while but it works. Also, put your dirty clothes in a plastic bag each night and tie it shut until you're ready to wash them. I also spray the floor of my shower each day with a mixture of water and Clorox as I used to feel biting on my feet when I stood in the shower.
I spent a couple thousand dollars on chemicals and other stuff which didn't work. So the freezer is cheap by comparison.
This should give you gradual relief. Be persistent.
Been there.

Microscopic Bugs/lice/mites
by: Clive

I seem to experience the same thing. But my case is a little different being that me, my dad and 4 other members of the house, literally experience bites and it itches so bad that we scratch our selves till it almost starts to bleed, and yet none of us see ANYTHING!! I don’t believe it’s a fungus or something like that because I moved out of the house where it started, and for the first 3 weeks in the new house everything was fine and for the first time in 8 months I slept like a baby with no itching of scratching! Until I put on a jean which was last wash in the old house, so being absent-minded i sat on my “new” bed (I tore the previous bed in two pieces out of frustration cause I cant get any sleep because of the crawling and itching)… anyhow, so now my new bed and bed sheets is also crawling with these microscopic bugs or lice or mites…and also, if it’s a fungus, why only feel it when I lay in bed or have certain clothes on, and how can a fungus crawl on the hair of you eyelash? Because while watching TV I suddenly feel something literally JUMP into my eye and then I feel it on the lash… how do I get rid of this? What is the strongest insecticide or pesticide, or should I just burn down everything including myself? Sorry for the suicide feeling but after 9 months of getting 2 hours of sleep a night because I have to scratch whole night… I just can’t take it any more!!

If anyone knows who I can contact in connection with my problem, I beg of you please mail me at:

Thank you,
