Scabies or Not?

by krn

Do you think this is scabies or not?

It started, with a "loaned jacket." After wearing it, (and not for but about an hour), the next day I felt something on my shoulder. I found these little black, but totally see-able, "shark fins" that protruded from my shoulder (that's the only way I can describe them).

I could scrape them off but later found, (not those), but others, burrowed into various parts of my body. I could squeeze them out with difficulty but other areas didn't have them, (that I know of), but I knew something was there nonetheless.

The entrance looked mostly like the shape of a football with a line in the middle. They caused the surrounding skin to be raised and inflamed. They destroyed the skin and really made me look horrible.

Doctors thought it was scabies but I have doubts. Scabies I know from experience itch like hell, these didn't, not much.

The cream seemed to work, but a few raised spots lingered for 2 or 3 months (felt like a leather bump) and after going threw 3 tubes of Permethrin cream previously, I thought I'd kicked it..but, the raised bumps, (of course I picked at them), seemed to have a knot under the skin and I believe it contained more of the critters cause one day they were back just as they started.


I can't tell you for sure if this is scabies or not, but I agree with you. It doesn't sound like it much at all.

Unfortunately, I can't really tell you what it IS either. It does sound like some type of parasite, but I don't recognize this one as one I'm familiar with.

Have you tried cleansing and building with natural supplements? You mentioned using the permethrin cream, but if it hasn't worked for you by now, I don't think you are doing yourself any favors by continuing to use it. It's not a natural substance and is actually putting more toxins into your body.

This is what I'd use in your position:

I know it may seem like a lot of effort, but it's really not too difficult and will really help to clean out your body and boost your immune system so that your body's natural healing abilities kick in full force.

To your good health!
