Parasites Of The Hair And Scalp
Hair and Scalp Parasites?
I seem to have an invasion of parasites of the hair and scalp.
Actually, this invasion involves only the scalp.
The initial infestation involved pustules attached to base of hair follicles (no longer present).
There is intense itching at the site of the burrow, especially late night into dawn.
Scratching produces tiny black specks - (one per site) which leave crusted fissures and tenderness.
I have not been able to find specific information about this problem. I have never had head lice, and this does not resemble chiggers which I have suffered before.
My best guess at this point is scabies, but it is atypical of scabies infection in adults.
Have you considered and/or ruled out folliculitis? That's what it sounds like initially.
I agree that what you are describing doesn't really resemble a typical scabies infection, and chiggers don't often attack the scalp, and certainly not exclusively.
My guess is that you may have folliculitis or similar type fungal infection on the scalp.
What have you tried to relieve it and help eliminate the problem from your system?
I would rinse the scalp thoroughly with a mixture of sea salt and warm water every day. After rinsing, apply a mixture of lavender and clove oil or lavender and tea tree oil.
You can add several drops to a carrier oil to
dilute the mixture so as not to burn the scalp and make the application much easier. I prefer organic cold pressed coconut oil, but you can use olive oil or another carrier oil if desired.
Leave it on the scalp as long as you can before washing it out. Obviously it is oily, so perhaps applying the mixture before bed would be best and then washing it out in the morning. If you have trouble cutting through the oil, try a little Dawn dish soap (or something similar that has a degreasing agent in it).
That's just topical treatment. For severe cases you will probably need to attack the infection internally as well. It's easier than you might think.
...will help clean out an overgrowth of fungus in the system and restore the balance of good bacteria.
It will also boost your immune system and help it get back in balance. These are excellent natural supplements that I use myself and have seen great success both in my own family and with many other clients.
