dealing with human skin parasites

Human skin parasites are becoming an ever increasing problem across the US and around the world.

So many of our visitors write in about the various skin conditions that they suffer from which they believe to be from a parasite infestation.  Many are treated abominably by the doctors they visit while seeking help. 

As time has passed, our website has become an informal meeting place for those who feel rejected and hopeless.  We encourage all comers to try the natural parasite cleanse that has helped so many others with human skin parasites, but we also want them to feel free to post their own experiences of things that they have found helpful.

One particular page titled "Parasites That Look Like Hair" has become excessively long with comments from visitors. 

I was asked to break it up into smaller pages so that it wouldn't freeze up the mobile devices that some people use.  I realized that this would be very beneficial, so this is the first page of those comments, and links to further pages about human skin parasites.

Hair like Parasites
by: Anonymous

Hi Angie==
You mentioned that hair like parasites can be seen in the stool? That is my current issue---I kept thinking I was loosing my pubic hair but this was unusual to see it in my stool. What type of intestinal parasite is hair like and can appear in stool?

Hair Like Parasites
by: Angie

I would classify most hair-like parasites as being in the nematode family. That's one of the most common types of worms found in the intestines of humans.

You can read more about the different human parasites if you like.

If you are seeing worms in your stool, I encourage you to try a natural parasite cleanse using Para 90 and Herbal Fiberblend.

I think you'll be quite glad you did! :)

to parasites that look like hair.
by: Anonymous

Here are a few possibilities to be checked.
Since you were eating worms, have stool and blood analysis. checked for worms. If worms are presents and identified, have the proper medication prescribed. This could solve your problem. Have a complete bloodwork to find out if you have imbalance or other ealth problems you are not aware of.

Then if you have lision on your skin or whatever else. See a dermatologist.Tell your whole story to the MD or MD`s you will see. This can be delt with. Free yourself from this thing.
Be happy. The best of luck.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have seen these hair-like things, i wasn't sure what they are! it was really hard to come across this... i do sometimes feel like there are things crawling around the anus, I see fabric/hair-like things on my underwear, after passing a bowel movement(shows on toilet paper), in between my fingers, when I blow my nose... it is just everywhere! I never noticed it before, at first I thought maybe it was the fabric of my underwear, but then it appeared everywhere! in my eye boogies... And I really do feel like things are crawling on me at times... did you ever find anything? heelp!

Cleanse for Internal Parasites
by: Angie

You really need to consider a good cleanse for internal parasites. There is no reason to continue allowing a parasite infection to grow and spread throughout your body unchecked. This only leads to further uncomfortable symptoms and possible serious health issues.

It's a simple enough matter to use natural cleansing herbs to kill parasites and rid them from your body. Both Herbal Fiberblend and Para 90 are both very safe and effective.

Start with using a tsp. of Herbal Fiberblend twice per day mixed in water or juice. Gradually increase over a 2 week period until you are taking a tablespoon of Herbal Fiberblend twice per day. I would continue for 3 months to get a thorough parasite cleanse.

Don't forget to replenish the good bacteria in your body by taking probiotics. Florafood is designed to work very well in conjunction with the HFB. Just take a couple of capsules twice per day about an hour or so away from the time you take the HFB.

I think you'll find that this works wonders for you. It's a good idea to also cut way back on the amount of sugar in your diet for a few weeks. Sugar feeds fungus and parasites and by cutting out their resources, you will get better results faster.

I hope to hear back that you have tried this protocol and are feeling great!

Have you tried an internal cleanse?
by: Angie

Hi Laurie,

Have you tried an internal cleanse yet in your effort to get rid of this problem you are dealing with?

Read the comments above and consider using the Herbal Fiberblend for a good cleanse of your digestive tract. That and the Florafood are a great place to start.

To your good health!

hair like parasites
by: Anonymous

I have experienced a similar thing. These parasites look almost like white dog hair. They are curly and they seem to wrap themselves around your hair in the furniture etc... I can't tell you how much i've thrown out because of this. The thing is that my children have them too. What i do is i oil them up from top to bottom with grape seed oil. This seems to bring them out the best and the fastest. but what i see is this little black bug that almost looks like a beetle ( extremely small) I have taken them to the pediatrician twice and they tell me i'm nuts. (Nice professionalism huh?) I then wait appx 1/2 hr to an hr and shower them When I do shower them and myself I use a tea tree mint shampoo It smells nice it dosen't hurt them and when they sleep the nasty critters still fall off. My concern is that sometimes when my kid goes to the bathroom (urinates) I can see them coming out. I'm very concerned with his health but the dr's won't listen. what can i use? and have you ever heard of this type of parasite? P.S I have noticed the hair like parasite part blows out of your hair into the air etc... what a smart way for it to pass itself along. I also spray my bedding, furniture, car everything with tea tree oil and i vaccume like crazy. soueam

Hair-Like Parasites In Stool
by: Angie

I believe that the different posters to this page are probably referring to different types of hair-like parasites...

....we have the hair-like parasites in stool
....and the hair-like parasites around the house (on furniture, etc.)

I would suspect that the hair-like parasites in the stool are almost certainly from the nematode family (hookworm, roundworm, threadworm, pinworm, etc.).

They are quite common and easily dealt with using natural herbal cleanses and immune boosting probiotics (as mentioned above).


These other hair-like parasites around the house I would guess are something different entirely. I wish I could tell you more about them, but I don't know more and don't want to lead you astray.

There's a growing concern about a possible parasitic infection referred to as Morgellon's.

The symptoms are diverse but absolutely devastating to those who believe they are affected by it.

Some of the unusual complaints are hair-like fibers of different colors and black specks coming out of the body. These are on top of the usual parasite symptoms of itching, crawling, and biting sensations.

I firmly believe that intestinal cleansing and immune support is ESSENTIAL for ALL forms of parasitic disease, Morgellons included.

But there are other recommendations throughout the web that Morgellon sufferers have tried with varied degrees of success. I can't vouch for them, but one visitor to in particular has expressed her success with adding far infrared therapy to her healing protocol.

If you think you may have Morgellons, it may be worth looking into yourself and doing some research on the subject. I hope to do more myself in future as time permits.

To your good health!

Hair-like parasites
by: Anonymous

I have seen these parasites that look like hair. I am currently treating for parasites. I began with Grapefruit Seed Extract capsules taking two 250mg capsules 3 or 4 times a day. My next step is the Fiberblend (probably tomorow). I have been using Tea Tree Oil and Vasoline around my genital area to kill them when they come out at night to lay their eggs, but this causes the parasites to bite when they’re dying. Not fun.

After a hot bath with Tea Tree Oil in the water, I began to notice these "hairs" that were pretty much the same color as my hair, but they looked a little different than my hair. They were on the bottom and sides of the tub. I thought this was odd since my hair was up in a rubber band.

I had seen a post on another blog by someone talking about these hair-like parasites and they even had a picture taken under a microscope and a description of them. They were supposed to have a bulb at one end (the head maybe) and often had two little bulbs farther down (possibly eggs). But these hairs did not have that, so I thought they were probably just hair.

Then one day I found one that looked like the others except it still had it's "head" and "eggs". I picked it up with some toilet paper and kept it. I hope to photograph it and see if it shows up.

Then I began finding several of these "hairs" after a hot bath and some of them were still moving! I picked one up with tweezers and put it on some toilet paper and watched it for awhile. I think it was in the process of dying as it was twitching. This particular "hair" was about 8" long. I've seen them many different sizes and the small ones (1/2" - 2") look like dog hair and are black.

It would be very difficult to convince anyone that these "hairs" are parasites, however, because they look like hair! It wasn't until I saw them move, twitch and curl that I knew for sure they were parasites. Tea Tree Oil does seem to kill them.

I have been finding them everywhere, especially in my underware and on the bathroom floor. I couldn't see them on the floor, but once I was picking one of the moving ones up with a pair of tweezers and I dropped it. Since I couldn't see it, I got a damp wash cloth and ran it over the rug to find it. Well, not only did I find it, there were several others as well! And some of them were moving, too! Gross.

I think the important thing is to just keep cleansing like Angie has said and not freak out about these things. After all, God had a purpose when He created each and every living thing, parasites included.

I'm looking forward to the day when I get them all killed and removed from my body and have my health back. I was almost an invalid before I discovered the parasite thing. And I didn't want to believe I could even have parasites. Not in THIS country! Well, yes in this country, and I have a bad case of them and have had for many years judging from my symptoms.

I intend to do more research on these fascinating “hair” parasites.

Update on Hair-like Parasites
by: Anonymous

No one has posted after my comments, which allows me to update my post. It is now several days after my original post and I did start using the Fiberblend. I started with 2 tsp. in fresh squeezed OJ in the morning and in the evening I began passing dark colored larger worms, some covered with a moss-like substance.

What's more, I have a 13 year old Blue and Gold Macaw Parrot and she drank some of it when I did. Several hours later she passed a worm-like thing that was about 3 1/2 inches long! Later she passed more parts of it and all together it was probably 5 or 6 inches long! Poor baby! No wonder she's had health problems most of her life. (By the way, I checked out the safety of the herbs for parrots before I gave her some. There were a couple of them that aren't good to give them much of, but she won't be taking it long term since I have some DE on the way).

I've gotten way less timid about these hair-like parasites. I've been collecting some of them by sticking them to the adhesive backs of sanitary napkin panty liners (hey, they were right there in the bathroom while I was dealing with these things and they work!). I have an "inquiring" kind of mind and these things are fascinating me.

I've noticed that when they are draped over the pad (stuck in their middle), that they will sway back and forth and up and down when the are dangled over the edge of the counter. They don't seem to like dangling in the air. When they are lying flat on the counter they don't move much, but dangle them and they begin to slowly sway.

I'm planning to video them through a page size magnifier. Hopefully they will show up. It's really fascinating to watch them.

I was wrong about the Tea Tree Oil. It doesn't seem to kill them after all, but it does seem to sting them and make them let go of the head. I've been washing my hair everyday with organic shampoo that I've added Tea Tree Oil to and they come out by the hand-fulls. It seems like I have a whole head full of them. I'm beginning to feel like that picture of Medusa (I think) in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. You know, the one with snakes for hair? Well, I've got worm type parasites for hair!

I'm continuing my research and I'm trying experiments on these amazing creatures. I'll post more as I find out more.

Parasites That Looks Like Hair Update
by: Angie

Thanks so much for keeping us updated on your progress. I'm fascinated too. :) I have a real visual of you with your medusa hair parasites! Grin!

I'm glad that you are finding the Herbal Fiberblend to be helpful. I figured it would be as that's really one of it's greatest benefits.

Are you taking probiotics? Things like acidophilus, bifidus, longum, etc.? If not, you really should. It helps build up the good bacteria in your system so that your body can work at eliminating parasites and repairing your digestive system.

Do keep us posted. I want to follow this and I'm rooting for you!

Update on Hair Like Parasites
by: Anonymous


Thank you for your response. The battle against parasites continues. This is really not fun, but I have to keep at it. I've been taking 1 tablespoon of Fiber Blend morning and evening, plus Grapefruit Seed Extract, Diatamaceous Earth (food grade), garlic and parsley capsules and have been drinking detox teas and using garlic and onion in my cooking. Even at this, it looks like I need to step up the battle.

With every stool, I pass many parasites of a lot of different kinds. Some days I feel strong and like I've made some real progress, then I'll have some bad days that make me feel as if I haven't made any progress at all. I guess this is just going to take some time.

I wish I could find some real information on these hair-like parasites. I've begun collecting them in zip-lock baggies. I'm sure that some of it is really hair, but I can't tell the difference! Because of that, every hair is "suspect". Especially the ones that come off on my pillow at night and the ones I capture with toilet paper when I wake up feeling something moving and tickling in my genital area. It's happened many times, so I know it's not just coincidence. I'm sure I wouldn't even be able to feel regular hair in my genital area! These things are definitely weird.

I really wish I could research them further, but there doesn't seem to be any research out there. Maybe it's just too weird for people to deal with - I know I've had many times when I've just wanted to forget the whole thing and have tried to convince myself that they're just hair.

Unfortunately, they act different than "just hair". Besides my posts here, I haven't told anyone else (except my husband) about this. I'm sure they'd just think I'm crazy and if they believed me, it would probably freak them out.

I have begun to wonder how many people with cancer actually have a huge parasite problem and if it's possible that they lose their hair during Chemotherapy because their hair isn't really hair but these hair-like parasites and maybe the chemo kills them or at least makes them drop off? Just a thought.

OOPS! I forgot to answer your question about the pro-biotics. I haven't been doing as well as I should in this dept. I have to take several supplements daily to replace what the parasites have stolen from me and I can't handle the gelatin capsules, so I open them and put them in some raw milk. I used to drink kefir and kombucha for awhile, but haven't been doing that since I started this parasite battle. Frankly, I get overwhelmed with all of it.

At the first, I felt so much better and I thought everything would be different for me, but after awhile, it became obvious that this will be a long hard battle and I will have to take supplements along with eating the healthy foods that I'm eating. The supplements are running into quite a bit of money, so I've been trying to take just the most necessary ones. The parasites have left me a little anemic and B vitamin depleted according to some blood work I had done.

I'm taking Aim's Barleylife, Just Carrots and I started taking the Beets for iron. On top of that, I'm taking Vitamin Code's Raw B complex, Raw C, and their 50 and Wiser Women Multi-vitamin, Food Science of Vermont's activated B6, Zinc, Ubiqinol (activated COQ10) and raw glandular thyroid. I'm pretty good about taking them daily, but sometimes I don't get them taken. I really suffer when I don't take them.

I'll look into the pro-biotics as I'm sure you're right about their importance. It's just been so hard to know what are the most important things to take and it's a learning process.
