Parasites - Creepy Crawlies
Please help with these parasites - creepy crawlies!
I feel like bugs are under my skin - I see track marks on my hands that look like a scratch, and I feel it in my hair and on my scalp - cant see what it is...........
What can I do and what can I use?
I am really trying to remain calm.....
Usually when you see what looks like track marks on your skin (and you are not using drugs, etc), the most likely parasite culprit is scabies. They itch like crazy, too!
Here's an article with some suggestions on treating the scabies parasite
that I wrote in response to someone else who sent in a question.
I can't guarantee that scabies is your particular parasites - creepy crawlies problem, but based on your short description, that's what it sounds like.
Definitely remain calm. Anxiety doesn't help and may actually make you feel worse than it really is. I know it's difficult, but start taking some basic actions and hopefully that will make you feel more in control.
Apart from the suggestions for internal and topical treatments already made in the article I linked to above, you can also start by taking some a bath and rinsing your head with sea salt in water.
Eating a clove of garlic (raw) daily may be helpful to you also. It's a bit strong eating it raw, but if you chop it up and eat it on a piece of buttered bread, it should make it easier to eat and not bother your stomach.
It can take a while for the itching of scabies to go away (even after the mite is killed), so just stay faithful in your treatment until you are all clear.
Hope this helps you and that you will be on the road to recovery soon.
To your good health,
