Thin White Hair-Like "Worms"
by Anonymous Me
Hair-Like Worms In Hair -
I have this problem of thin white hair-like worms and I have literally contemplated suicide over it. I am fighting depression because of it as it gives me complete panic anxiety.
These same thin white hair-like worms or "things" come out of my hair too. I am a woman with black hair down to the middle of my back.
I don't have pets, even though the second dermatologist I saw laughed at me when I showed him one longer one I saved in a Ziploc bag and said, "This did not come from your hair it came from a dog or something!" What a JERK! This is why I get so depressed.
"Um… do you think it's in your head?" said the doctor before this one.
I have seen an allergist, (oh yeah, because these "things" get in the air and make me cough and sneeze ALL the time), because I first thought I was allergic to my shampoo. -NOT THAT
Then I thought it must be a hair product I'm using. So, I stopped using ALL hair products.-NOT THAT
Then I thought maybe I have burned it so much (with heating tools) that microscopic pieces are "peeling" off my hair follicles. So, I stopped using heating tools (even though my hair was a mess I just wanted to breathe at night without all the allergies I was experiencing). -NOT THAT
So about two years with this problem and it has gotten PROGRESSIVELY worse, and I finally search on-line…"hair-like things coming out of my hair."
So doctors NO IT'S NOT IN MY HEAD!
I have no clue what to do as the last dermatologist I saw (DUMB ****) gave me about 8 different "dandruff" items to try. Sal shampoo, Nizoral, (btw, I'd already tried everything over the counter), a steroid oil for scalp, Zinc shampoo, Tar shampoo, special hair lotion… the list goes on. NOTHING WORKS!
I told her, when I am out in the sun and I shake my hair, a bunch of microscopic dandruff like particles come out AS WELL AS these little squiggly hair-like pieces.
I said, "Is there any way you could just walk outside with me (outside at this Kaiser was no more than 30 feet away) and I can show you what this looks like?" "Um, no. I can't go outside" she says, "I have other clients."
At this point I'm pissed because I already showed her these particles that were visible on my black tights and she didn't even care. Again looked at me as though it was nothing. As Chicago Mike posted, they get on everything!
He is right they are all over my nightstands, my lampshades on my nightstands, my car, and all my house mirrors that I use. They float off my hair and land on these different items.
I have tried it ALL! I have spent so much money getting "green" hair products, shampoos etc.
I am so sick of this! I would rather not live than cause
those around me to have dry coughs and sniffles because this stuff appears to linger in the air around me and get caught in our throats.
I did read about Tea Tree oil, so I bought a little bottle at GNC. It gives me some relief rubbing some on my scalp and hair before I wash with one of the stupid medicated shampoos the last dermatologist gave me. This week I stopped using the Tea Tree oil and only used the medicated shampoos and this stuff got to be just as bad as I had it 8 weeks ago.
That doctor told me, "You have to try these things for at least two months, then if they don't help (enter laughter here) I will walk outside with you." WHAT A ****! I cannot even believe these so called doctors.
So it's been about two months now of battling these thin white hair like worms, and I have gotten ZERO RELIEF with dandruff crap.
I need to attack these things differently. Especially if most people are calling them a parasite.
Oh one more thing, I've tried taking pictures, but they are difficult enough to make out under dim lighting so are not visible in pictures. The camera picks it up as dust and won't focus.
Dear Anonymous Me,
I understand your frustration and I applaud your realization that you have to tackle this problem in a different way as what you have been trying is just not working.
You've been focusing on external topical treatments, when I believe wholeheartedly that you need to focus on internal parasite cleansing and building up your immune system.
This is the protocol I would suggest:
The Composure will help calm your anxiety as well as work together with the Herbal Fiberblend to cleanse and detoxify your system. The BarleyLife and the AIMega will work together to support your immune system.
There are more suggestions I could make for internal support, but those are the most important I think in your situation. You can purchase them here
at wholesale prices.
Having said that, I'm not saying that all topical treatments are useless. I would suggest that you get some organic cold pressed coconut oil and apply it liberally to your hair/scalp each night and wash it out in the morning.
You can wrap your hair in a towel or shower cap while sleeping so as not to soil your pillow cases if that is a worry.
If you can't find the coconut oil at a local health food store, you can buy it online at Puritan's Pride
I hope you will be able to follow the above protocol and finally get some relief. Don't give in to your discouragement. If you decide to act on these suggestions let me know and I will give you more specific instructions on how and when to take each supplement to get the best results.
