Is This A Parasite Affecting My Legs?

Is This A Parasite Affecting My Legs?

I'm wondering if this is a parasite that has caused the following changes in the skin of my legs.

I did the epilation (pulling hairs by root with an electric coil device) on my legs and bikini area.

I used to do it before, but this time I was doing it in less than perfect conditions (on a dirty floor in the bathroom).

About 2-3 weeks after that I've noticed the following changes on my skin (these changes have not gone away after a year):

  1. The hair follicles seem to be pushed up on the entire area that I did the epilation on. They are not inflamed, they are just pushed up. It makes the skin on my legs and bikini area look like it's got permanent goosebumps.

  2. The skin became PAPER THIN. I can see all veins and capillary vessels. It's not a matter of spider veins, it's a matter of seeing everything under the skin, even the tiniest blood vessels.

  3. Bikini area skin - inner side of the upper thigh and the joint - became extremely dry, saggy (like elephant skin) and very dark. it hasn't been this way before the appellation.

I suspect that I've got infected by some sort of parasite during epilation.

So, is this a parasite? Any idea what kind?

Hi Ann,

How strange and frustrating for you! I use an epilator myself and have noticed some differences in my hair growth. The biggest problem being ingrown hairs.

I suspect that part of your concerns - the thinner skin and the raised bumps - may simply be the result of stress on the skin. Although it would seem it should have cleared up by now if you have not continued to remove the hair by this method.

The change in the skin condition that you described in your inner thighs may be the result of an infection picked up either from
the bathroom floor or the epilator itself.

What to do about it?

We have to realize that our skin condition is really the external result of our inner health. When our body is getting all the nutrition it needs and processing it efficiently, our skin is healthy as a result.

  1. Externally - Two suggestions: First, treat your skin topically with organic apple cider vinegar. Just dab it on with a cotton ball once or twice a day. Secondly, rub organic cold pressed coconut oil into the skin daily.

  2. Internally - Cleanse your system of parasites using either Para 90 capsules or Herbal Fiberblend powder. Both are all natural combinations of anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs.

  3. Internally - Treat your cells with rich nutrition in the form of Leaf Greens. This will boost your immune system and help your body create healthy new cells that can restore your skin condition.

There is something else to consider. I don't know your age, but I've done a bit of research about the symptoms of low progesterone levels in women. Various skin conditions can be the result.

Quite often the use of a natural progesterone cream on the problem area clears up the issue. After trying various natural progesterone creams, I use Renewed Balance and find it to be the best quality available. You can order it here if you think that low progesterone may be a possible source of your condition.

I hope this info. helps you. I can't really say specifically what type of parasite may be troubling you or if it's a parasite at all.

There are an unbelievable number of various bacteria and viruses that we come in contact with every day. Your best defense is a good offense.

Keep your immune system as strong as possible by giving it the best nutrition through a healthy diet, good quality vitamins, and whole food supplements.

To your good health!
