Prickly Biting Feeling - Maybe From Something In Sand?

Prickly Biting Feeling - Maybe From Something In Sand?

What is biting me? This prickly biting feeling is driving me crazy!

I have had my house heat-treated for bed bugs and mites.

I still continue to feel something crawling on my skin and feelings like a prickly bite. It resembles someone sticking you with a pin or needle.

I don't see anything in the area. These biting feelings happen throughout the day but mostly at night when I am in bed.

I notice little black specks on my sheets. I asked the man from Orkin who came in for the third and final treatment if it could be bird mites. He inspected the inside and outside of the house and said that there was no evidence of bird mites and there were no bed bugs.

I have no clue what is crawling and biting my skin but I am not sleeping well and it is driving me crazy.

When I went to Houston back in December, I went to the beach to fish and when I stepped on gulf coast sand where I was fishing I sank in about a foot and a half in this black sand.

I guess it may have been remains from the oil spill.

Could I have contracted a parasite from that that is causing these problems now?

Thanks for any suggestions you can give,

Dear G.

From what I understand you to say, you have not actually seen a single bug of any sort that might be the source of these prickly biting feelings.

That's not unusual, but I mention it for clarification purposes. In many instances, the pricking and crawling sensations that people experience are
not actually from an external bite but an internal issue.

Yes, it can be a symptom from some type of parasite (external or internal), but it can also be the result of toxins in the system or an allergic reaction.

It's hard to say to someone, "THIS is it!" when you are not seeing the person in person and asking a LOT of questions, and even then it can be extremely difficult.

It's quite possible that you were contaminated when you were exposed to the oil spill remains in December, but if you are only now experiencing symptoms that may only be coincidental.

The black specks you mention can sometimes indicate a fungal infection (yeast overgrowth in the body), which is usually the result of a weakened immune system.

As you see, the options are seemingly endless! Fortunately, the solution is relatively the same regardless of the underlying cause.

I would suggest a thorough cleanse with Herbal Fiberblend to eliminate yeast, parasites, excess toxins, etc., that may be causing the prickly biting feelings.

A whole green food powder like BarleyLife will certainly help, along with some essential fatty acids (AIMega) to help boost and balance out your immune system.

I would also suggest that you get at least one bottle of Composure, too, in your situation so that you will be able to sleep in the meantime.

Well, those are my very best suggestions based on your description. I sincerely hope that they are helpful to you and that you are able to eliminate your prickly biting feelings quickly and permanently.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Pinprick bite- Same!! Help! NEW
by: LA

To: Prickly Biting Feeling,
Please what did you do OR find out regarding these bugs??? I just felt the pinprick sensation again on leg (& so very HARD to catch opportunity to see!!) & immediately reacted to check it. Sure enough SOMETHING tiny, dark burrowed in and looked like tiny, tiny sliver. But before could go any deeper I had covered area with peppermint oil ( one site said tea tree, another eucalyptus - I have all of them) and using my fingernail, forced it back out. But at same time crushed it into mail. I'm going CRAZY trying to eradicate my environ of these bugs. They don't cause itch. I am so sick of the faint pin prick and sometimes feels like trapped in clothes. CanNOT see them. Can NOT get rid. I am in North Georgia. Working with wood. Originally thought some sort of wood related worms. Help! Info!!

Bird Mites Hate Smoke NEW
by: Mites

Mites will die if you burn cedar oil or lots of incense. It has to be lots of smoke so don’t stay in the room. Tons of smoke also kills Collembola because they breathe through their skin.

Best Steps To Take NEW
by: Angie from

Hi Sandy,
What have you done so far to combat this problem that you are dealing with?

Some of the most popular suggestions for the house is to sprinkle diatomaceous earth around the place and vacuum it up (I would suggest using an older vacuum rather than an expensive one. Maybe pick one up at the second hand shop or garage sale for this purpose.)

Another option is to spritz clove oil or cedar oil in a water mixture around the place.

As for your own body, have you tried the parasite cleansing protocol that I outlined on the website? At the very least, the Herbal Fiberblend and Composure would be the most important supplements. However, based on your description, the more you can manage the better.

Thinking this is only an external issue is a mistake. If you don't deal with it internally you probably don't have any chance of beating it.

Hope you are able to tackle this aggressively and start feeling better soon.
