Parasite That Leaves A Small Black Line

by Russell
(Pollock Pines CA)

What is this parasite that leaves a small black line? I thought I had bed bugs. What do bed bugs do?

I have these little white looking things that I find on carpet and desk. Then I find a black bug, it looks like, then I touch and it is like a skin or like ash. It just falls apart.

Then I find these little bugs that looks like baby to big skin or shell.

I went and purchased bed bug bombs and spray. I vacuumed up a bunch of different size bugs but what are these little black lines or are they baby bed bugs?

Whatever they are, they started on the tops of feet and then are on my back and legs. When I first spotted on the tops of feet looked like black dots. Now still have dots but it looks like the little ones or the babies are under my skin or they hold on real good because you have to take skin off with tweezers and just remove piece of it.

Help! What kills bed bugs? I am going crazy.

Hi Russell,

Are you talking about a parasite that leaves a small black line under the skin? This doesn't really sound like bedbugs to me, though I'm not really a "bedbug expert."

Usually bedbugs are difficult to see, but are generally evidenced in
and around your mattress.

Their bites tend to come only when you are in bed, and the bite marks are typically red dots.

I'll be honest in telling you that I can't possibly diagnose you or confirm what it is that you are dealing with based on your description.

It's possible that some of what you are seeing is the feces from a type of bug rather than another type of actual bug.

Are you able to take some samples of the various specimens you are finding and show perhaps your local cooperative extension? They may be able to give you specific identification so that you can know how to treat them for extermination.

You could be experiencing mites, a fungal infection, or something else entirely. Some of our visitors have provided similar descriptions and believe they have Morgellons.

A few people have mentioned that they have found Cedarcide to be helpful for spraying around the home to get rid of pests without using nasty chemicals.

For your skin, you might want to try some lavender and tea tree oil combined with a carrier oil to wipe on the affected areas of your body a couple of times per day.

Sorry I can't be of more help, but I do hope that you are able to get some relief soon. To your good health!

Same as Dee NEW
by: Shel

For over 2 years now I’ve found these black dots in a spot or cut. You have to get it (whatever it is) out with tweezers and it bleeds none stop. I went to the Dr.s and they gave stuff for scabies which didn’t work as it’s clearly not scabies. This is driving me crazy has anyone any ideas or advice.

Foung it NEW
by: Anna

I am back to tell you all that I got a powerful microscope and found out my problem is Springtail bugs. They are all over my house including my skin. They caused fungus and love to just hop all over driving me crazy. So check for these miserable little bugs. They love moisture and rotting wood, plants, and mold. Nobody believed I had a problem but now everybody knows I do. What a relief.

Kleen Green NEW
by: Linda

Kleen Green is the SOLUTION😄 I've been plagued with these buggers for over a month. The Doctors have been giving me Scabbies Medicine. Their remedy to get rid of these parasites. To no avail. They need to go back to Med School. I looked online and came up with KLEEN GREEN. I have used it for 2 days and most of the bites have stopped. These thread like parasites breed in cotton. So was use hot water to bath and wash clothes. After. Bathing spray all over body. Spray everywhere as it is a natural product. You can also take a bath also in it. Spray furniture, rugs, walls & floors. The product is non toxic can be used around babies and pets. Look it up. It's great!

same here NEW
by: anna

To let everyone know you not crazy. I think they have to come from wood but they love my keyboard and carpet too. I have been dealing with them for 8 months now and I will tell you I have tried everything. The best so far is peroxide. They will jump off when applied to skin as for hair Herbal Essence shampoo the kind that says long lasting relationship on the bottle. But I can say I don't think you can get rid of these miserable things. hey ruin skin and hair. They have ruined my life.

maybe- Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura aka ITP

Hey I can't believe it I found some l
Who has this mysterious crap. I have had mine for over 3years. Mine started out as blood blisters I had them all over the bloody blister.
I just mash them and blood would pop out everywhere. Then another stage came where the blisters left but these seed looking eggs would come and go every where. Al over my breast stomach legs. So I had been to several dr no one knew what it could be. I have bought over 500 dollars worth of Medicine creams. I bought some blue star ointment. I used it before but never did nothing. Anyway when the egg looking thing's came I got it back out I started rubbing it all over the marks and bumps. After several hours the first night it was like blue star was turn it into mush and the would mash the bumps and this white looking puse stuff would come out. I saw results first night anyway the sores would start drying up like the was the mother bug. I used blue star a while until I killed them alot of them off so it did. Then start use acne cream and still am. I got a microscope to see if it was a big. Even though that's what I call it I didn't see anything like one. The black things are in every sore I have
I have found lots of them in sores. I have researched this and I believe I might know what this could be. If you notice when u scratch one of the sores they bleed bleed so bad. Well there is a sickness that deals with blood platelets which will cause you to bleed Uncontrollably when the platelets are low well I think the black spots are drops of blood that are dried up. BECAUSE when I peroxide my sores they boil like crazy. Then not every time but sometimes when I boil my sores out afterwards while I am resting I have this dark brown stuff starts coming out of all my sores which I believe is blood. See blood makes a scab and when this stuff come out it looks like old blood that was boiled out with the peroxide when it drys it turns it into a scab that is hard as a shell. They hurt. I now have sores in my eyes looks like stye but after a fewer days one of the bugs start coming out of the sore on my eye lid. I pull it out it makes a little hole and the puse inside starts draining and then it drys up. The disease I think it could be is

i understand
by: Gavin

Fyi i have the same thing. My doctor prescribed permethrin and diagnosed it as scabies. The permethrin is an insecticide and WILL work. If you dont have a way of getting a scrip then lucky for youi have a solution. You see i dont use organic methids because they take too long and may not work. If you go to home depot in the cleaning section you will find a spray bottle called "Good Night". It is meant for bed bugs.
Remember what i say next, it is only 5% permethrin mix that will kill these mites. If you try using the 2.5% lice mix it will not work. It also has to have permethrin in the ingredient list or it will not work.
You need to mix the spray with either aloe vera or skin lotion and cover your entire body leaving no bare spots. According to my doctor you need to leave it on for 8 hours in order to ensure all mites are killed for good.
After doing this wash your hair with the lice shampoo and use body wash on your entire body to ensure all dead mites are washed off. You need to tie up all your belongings tzhat have cloth used in their construction that you were in conta t with while infected and let them sit for 3 days after spraying them with the same good night spray you used on yourself.
If you choose to go this route it will cost you 7 bucks, whereas the docs scrip costs 10p and does not provide enough to cover your body. Good luck and i hope this helps. I have been a week without the issue, yet i just had a resurgence today and it was nice to have the permethrin on hand. Spray those little fuckers and watch em pop out of your skin like crackerjack toys and laugh at their pain because they gave me hell.

I'm sorry you are having such a tough time and not getting any positive results at the doctors.

I can't emphasize enough how much I think you would be helped by a thorough internal cleanse and some immune support.

Please try the following...

These three working together are excellent to clean you out and strengthen your immune system to give your body the resources it needs to fight off this condition.

I can't guarantee 100% that it will work, but I CAN guarantee that if it doesn't, you can get your money back. :) What have you got to lose?

You can order them here if you are in the US, if you are from somewhere else, let me know and I'll see if we can get it to you.

Black Spots On Pubic Area
by: Angie from

Hi Lee,

The black spots could be the result of a fungal infection. It's probably best not to pick at them. I would try rinsing the area with a mixture of sea salt in warm water and then applying one of the following essential oils - tea tree, clove, lavender, oregano, or garlic.

If you don't want to use the essential oils straight, dilute them a bit with some olive oil or organic coconut oil.

If you apply this mixture at least twice per day for a couple of weeks, that will probably do the trick.
