Crawling All Over Inside?

by Sue
(Syracuse, NY, USA)

Things are crawling all over inside of me!

Where do I start?

I first noticed my skin problems about 12 years ago after coming out of the shower and noticing long red and inflamed scratch marks on my skin.

After going to my Dr. I was told that I had dermatographism and was given a RX for Zyrtec to alleviate the itching and outbreaks. I have been taking it ever since.

I later started to experience sensitivity to all sorts of things like: laundry detergent, bath soap, lotions and perfumes.

After moving up north a year ago from Florida, I developed seasonal allergies as well as several food allergies, like: peanut, soy, wheat and citrus as well as a latex allergy, per my allergist after receiving lab results.

But, how could this be if I have been eating these items my whole life with no problem?

I also feel like things are crawling all over inside me right under my skin. It is very annoying and feels quite uncomfortable.

In addition to that I have gained 20 lbs and just cant seem to get rid of it. Which is all very new for me, since I have always been a petite person.

I have also noticed dry patchy rashes on my skin and scalp resembling eczema.

If this is possibly some sort of parasite, how long will it take to get rid of?

Please guide me in the right direction towards a more comfortable and stress free life.

Going crazy in NY.

Hi Sue,

It's possible and quite likely that you may be suffering symptoms from more than one underlying problem.

It's certainly possible that your initial skin condition was the result of some bacteria or parasite that you were exposed to all those years ago when you noticed the inflamed scratches after your shower.

If that is the case, and you haven't treated yourself for parasites, there's a good chance you have quite a little build up in your system by now that could be the underlying cause of many of the symptoms you have described.

Parasites tend to take up residence and live off of the food you are trying to nourish your body with, leaving you a lot of toxic waste in exchange. These toxins build up in your body and cause all kinds of troubles.

Although Zyrtec may have been a helpful option for the short term relief of symptoms, your prolonged use of this synthetic drug may be the cause of some of your symptoms, too. There are always negative side effects associated with pharmaceutical prescriptions. You have to decide if the trade off is worth it.

I can't say whether or not you genuinely have dermatographism or not. If so, what caused it and is there a way to get the body to heal? Those are the questions I would be asking myself and my doctor (one who believes in natural health and healing, not just giving prescriptions to mask symptoms).

I wouldn't be surprised if you have an overgrowth of yeast in your system
(Candida) that is contributing to all these new and frustrating allergies and skin conditions you've experienced.

Yes, we CAN develop allergies to things we were never allergic to in the past. When our immune system gets weaker and weaker, we have less of a tolerance for things that never bothered us when our constitution was stronger.

Something else that may contribute to your weight gain and possibly a few of the other symptoms is hormonal imbalance.

You didn't mention your age, but many women in western countries begin to have trouble and symptoms of hormone imbalance as young as their early 30's. I started using natural progesterone cream myself when I was 32 for this very reason. It's been a blessing! I use Renewed Balance.

Let me know if you think this may be a possibility with you and I'll give you more info. on the subject.

This is what I would do if I were in your skin:

  1. Start with a good digestive cleanse. Take Herbal Fiberblend for a minimum of 3 months to help remove toxins, parasites, and yeast fungus from your body.

    Start with 1 tsp. twice per day and gradually increase to 1 Tablespoon twice per day over a two week period. Continue at that dose for at least 3 months.

  2. Secondly, I would replenish the good bacteria in my system by using Florafood, a good combination of probiotics, to build up the friendly flora and boost my immune system. I would take at least one capsule 3 times per day with meals.

  3. Finally, I would start to pump my body with as much good quality nutrition as I could to give the body the tools it needs to heal and produce healthy new cells.

    I use the Garden Trio and Leaf Greens for this purpose. They are whole food supplement powders that are rich in nutrition and easily absorbed into the system.

  4. If the stress is really getting to you, consider trying some Composure, too. You can easily open the capsules and add them to your daily Herbal Fiberblend, or you can take them separately about 30 minutes before you go to bed to help relax you and give you a better night's rest.

The bad news is that 12 years of built up problems aren't going to be "cured" overnight, but I certainly believe that you CAN give your body the tools it needs to begin the healing process.

I would suspect that the HFB and Florafood would help alleviate the feeling of something crawling all over inside within the first three months, but I can't guarantee you that.

I don't know you personally or your level of health. We are each going to heal at a different pace. What I DO know is that these natural supplements I've just recommended have survived the test of time and have been a great blessing and help to many people.

It is my hope and prayer that they will be of equal or greater help to you, too.

To your good health!

parasites infected shoes, migrate to every gland
by: Chris

I have been dealing with these bugs for 3 years now. after starting out in my feet and infecting every pair of shoes I have, they decided to attack my mucous membranes in my mouth and caused be to go nearly blind for 2 weeks, all the time shedding nasty worms with a sucker head and tail that stick to anything. They infested my whole face and moved on to by groin area, almost eliminating my urine flow and completely encasinrr g my genitals. Mu doctor finally prescribed Permithin creme, which has indeed worked, but the extent of the infestation is incredible. Happened Almost over night. There is a false layer of skin that is encasing my body and I am constantly rubbing this layer off with diatomaceous earth. My mouth is a wreck and I am getting dentures soon because these things are causing my teeth to fall out. I have multiple samples of what I have pulled off my body. What I need to find is a good entomologist!

Crawling sensation NEW
by: Wendy

I also have that, I'm doing a Canadian cleanse, it's a terrible feeling. I wanted to suggest coffee enemas to help your healing process. Do a little googeling on the subject and I think there is great evidence that they are very beneficial for cleansing.

A Good Cleanse Makes A Difference
by: Angie

So glad to hear that you are on the mend! I'm never surprised when I hear that a good cleanse makes a difference in someone who is suffering with the symptoms of parasites.

There's really no "one size fits all" when it comes to dealing with our health, but you can hardly ever go wrong using a natural herbal cleanse to clean out your system and giving your body some relief.

Add some really good quality nutritional support and probiotics and you are almost sure to get results.

I completely agree and sympathize with your frustration and dismay at the way some doctors will insist on treating patients as if they are either stupid or crazy just because they themselves don't know all the answers.

I'm so pleased you found someone who was capable and knowledgeable enough to help you.

Forgot to mention something
by: Anonymous

I meant to say also that I started the parasite / fungal cleanse around the time I had a skin biopsy which was after several treatments of Ivermectin and Permethrin.

The biopsy results were negative for parasites and the night following my dermatologist appointment where he told me that I was 'clear' and that I was making all those scratch marks myself, I saw parasites in the water after going to the toilet. One with a two pronged head and others that looked like tiny black dots, all darting around in the water.

I don't understand why doctors have to prove their patients wrong (at the risk of their mental health) because they simply don't know the answer.

Skin crawling with long red scratch marks
by: Anonymous

Over the last 4 months I have had several of the symptoms you describe: feeling like invisible bugs were crawling all over my skin, itchy pimple like clusters and then after a few months came the little pin prick stings that were immediately followed by long straight red scratch marks all over my body and marks on my skin that look like eczema.

My dermatologist told me that I was producing the lines myself by scratching myself in my sleep or in the garden. I knew this wasn't true and that I wasn't crazy so I got rid of him.

My symptoms only started to turn around after being treated by a Naturopath with a cleanse that targeted fungal overgrowth and parasites. I'm on the mend at last!
