Invisible But Very Painful On The Skin

by Raghavendra V
(New Delhi, India)

I experienced something invisible but very painful on the skin.

It felt like an insect bite on the inner side of my left elbow but even after careful look I did not see any creature.

I applied coconut oil and an antiseptic cream but for about 10 to 15 minutes the pain did not go. I also felt that a creature with spikes on its body is moving around that area. After some time it was OK.

Next day the same thing happened on my right hand at almost the same time after putting on the night suit and after going to bed. I though it probably had to do with my shirts that whose sleeves were touching that place.

Anyway, once again I could not see any creature, it must had been very tiny. Once again I very clearly felt the painful creature moving around few centimetres here and there.

I pressed it, rubbed it, washed it, oiled it and put some cream but it stayed for some time.

Two days later now I can see red dots on those places on both hand. So there was definitely something that was invisible to naked eyes. The place is exactly where the doctors push syringe needles to draw blood for testing.

The dots are really small and looks like the ones from a bed bug. They are not becoming bigger or brighter and I hope that they will disappear in next few day.

I also do not have any discomfort at the moment, but I am worried
that the creature might be some parasite that has entered my body and would move to other parts and cause damage.

If I visit a doctor, he might dismiss this as some insect bite and wait for some other symptoms to develop.

I don't know. Should I consult a doctor anyway?

Dear Raghavendra,

The decision to consult a doctor is entirely up to you. I think in your situation I would probably wait to see if there were any further symptoms developing.

It does sound rather like a bite or sting of some sort. Have you carefully checked your bed and bed linen to be sure that there wasn't something in your mattress seams or elsewhere that could have bitten or stung you?

I personally don't know what parasite this would be if it is a parasite. It's not acting like one of the typically common ones, like bedbugs or scabies.

If your fear of it being an internal parasite is quite strong, you can take some cleansing herbs and probiotics just to be on the safe side.

If you can get some black walnut hull, wormwood, and clove, they are helpful in ridding the body of parasites.

For probiotics you may want to look for acidophilus, longum, and/or bifidum in some combination.

Take the probiotics at a separate time of day from the herbs.

I hope you don't have any further trouble from this invisible but very painful on the skin experience and that it doesn't happen again.

To your good health!

Cleansing Does Help
by: Angie

Dear Danielle,

Thanks so much for your kind words and for coming back to let us know how you progressed.

I'm so pleased that you are doing better and that the intestinal cleanse helped as well as the ointment.

People sometimes get tired of hearing me say it on the website, but cleaning out the inside is one of the most effective and practical ways of dealing with so many health issues, even external skin problems.

I personally keep Herbal Fiberblend on hand at our house at all times. You just never know when you're going to need it and I haven't found anything better yet. :)

Thanks again for the update. All the best for your continued good health!

Thank you

You both were probably right. When my aunt mentioned that it was probably a rash I wasn't convinced it was. After surfing the internet and learning about parasites I decided to go to whole foods and purchase an intestinal cleanse to help rid my colon of any parasites. I also purchased some tea tree ointment. Both seemed to have helped. The bumps have all gone or either disappeared leaving only a few faint marks.

My sister seems to believe that I broke out into hives. It very well may have been an allergic reaction to something but whatever it was, I never want to experience it ever again. It was sooooo painful and drove me nuts.

Either way I really appreciate this wonderful website. I currently don't have health insurance and if I had gone to the doctor they probably would have said to do some of the same remedies that I found on this website with a big bill attached. Thank you so much. I'll be sure to share this resource with others.

All the best,

Your's case seems to be real parasite attach. Mine was probably not as I got OK without taking any treatment. Angie would certainly have a lot to tell you.

Me too!

Raghavendra V. what did you take to get rid of these parasites? Lots of things were mentioned.... what worked for you? I will do the tea tree oil immediately but what else worked.

Mine atarted with a "freckle" on my ankle. I thought I picked something up while walking in the feild grass near a new area of the city close to where I live. It has been over a year and the thing skeeps moving around but only about an inch or two from the original freckle. I sometimes see a black pin pint come to the surface of the skin. It alsos seems to want air as when I put a 3x3 inch square of duct tape over the area there were 3 new holes in the skin at the edge of where the duct tape was. This is driving me crazy!!

So looking forward to what you have to say!

I agree with Angie. The situation is very different from mine and I incidentally did not take any medicine and it was all OK after some time. Yours is very likely is allergic reaction to some cream or other application. Just follow what Angie says and it would be all OK within few days.

Itchy Red Bumps
by: Angie

Dear Georgia,

Your situation sounds a good bit different to me than that of Raghavendra. Mainly the fact that you have so many of these itchy red bumps rather than just a couple.

When do you get them? Only at night? In bed? Did you thoroughly check the mattress seams for bed bugs?

If you are certain that bed bugs are not the problem, try to think of any "new" product you have tried recently - a soap, laundry detergent, cleaning product, bug spray, etc.

It's possible you are having an allergic reaction to something. I once had a horrific allergic reaction to Deep Woods Off bug spray, and another time I had a dreadful allergic reaction to tea tree oil that was unfiltered and straight from the trees. What a nightmare.

The lumps came up and itched like crazy, leading to me scratching until I drew blood - not pretty.

Consider anything that you may have recently encountered to eliminate possible allergic reactions.

You can try soothing your skin with aloe vera gel (straight from the plant is best). Also, if you can get some raw honey (not heat processed) from your area, it acts as a natural anithistamine. Of course an over the counter antihistamine would be the preference of some people.

I hope you are able to find and eliminate the problem. :)

which treatment worked for you?
by: Anonymous (Georgia)

Your case was the closest post to what I'm experiencing. I too have been experiencing tingling/crawling/biting sensations over my body. As soon as I feel the initial bite, I look and nothing is there. Within minutes a small red bump (often times with a microscopic black dot in the middle) appears.

Initially when it happened to me I thought I had gotten bitten by a flea but their bites typically sting a bit. These bites don't really sting. They're subtle and then feel itchy immediately. Once I showed a few family members, my aunt suggested that they could be a rash. At this point I believe her. Within 24 hours, I went from having six bug bites (so I thought), to over 60+ on my legs, arms, shoulders, chest, stomach, and thighs.

Looking at them you would think something bit me but I've never seen a bug in any of the areas. Is there an internal parasite going around or something?

What treatment did you use? I'm going to the store tomorrow. I've experienced the tingling sensations and bug bites before but NEVER of this magnitude. These bites are not pretty and I pray they don't leave scars on my body. They itch like crazy.
