Sores with Three Black Dots and White Thin Thread Coming Out of Skin
I have recently been working in the garden and got bitten by something. The sores itched really bad.
Now it's been two months later, and I still have the sores - they seem to have three black spots in each sore and itch.
Also, I have noticed fine white thread coming out of my skin all over - mostly from legs and arms. I am finding wads of lint around me and I see droplets of what looks like water wherever I am.
Can you please help?
I sure wish I could help, but I'm afraid I can't really tell you what might have bitten you with any confidence.
I'm familiar with certain hairy caterpillars that can land on the body and leave hairs poking out of the skin. It burns and itches like crazy, but the ones I'm familiar with do not create further white thread-like or lint-like later growth.
Have you been to the doctor to have them take a look at the sores? If you tell them that you were bitten by something, they may be familiar with a particular insect, spider, etc., in your region that they have treated in the past.
Have you noticed any other unusual conditions that you are experiencing since this episode? Things like upset stomach, constipation, bloating, etc.?
You may find it helpful to get some coriander essential oil to apply to your skin topically to see if it would clear up the sores for you.
I always suggest that people take immune boosting supplements when they are having a reaction to something - whether they know the underlying cause or not.
When you give your body a lot of resources to work with, it can often figure out where the problem lies and deal with it on its own.
Wish I could be of more help, but I hope you are able to discover the source of the problem and eliminate it.
