Tiny Light Brown/Clear Bugs

by Jeremy

I just rented a furnished room in an old house in Ohio. I have no children.

The homeowner's dog has fleas and is constantly scratching to the point where her hair is falling out.

I was not aware of this when I moved in but I know my room has fleas. The dog used to sleep on the bed in my room. I know what they look like and we are working on it, but I have a bigger concern.

I have also noticed tiny light brown/clear bugs that I thought were scabs from itching then it started to move on my forearm. It was attached to my hair follicle and appeared to be burrowing.

It also looked fuzzy and had a lot of legs. It appeared to be more round than oval but it is so tiny that I can't be sure. I have also noticed eggs. It bites and the bites itch.

I have never experienced this. Please help. I have no medical insurance and I cannot afford to move again.

Hi Jeremy,

I'm glad that you have identified the flea issue and that you are taking steps to deal with it. The dog definitely needs to be treated and your room (and really the whole house) needs to be "treated" as well.

At the very least, you may want to get some organic apple cider vinegar (Bragg's) and put it in a spray bottle to spray around your room. I know it stinks, but it will only stink for a short time and the smell fades away, usually within the hour.

Fleas don't seem to like ACV, and it's not harmful to humans or dogs. In fact, putting a teaspoon of the organic ACV in the dogs drinking water bowl will help both with keeping fleas away and helping the skin to quit itching and the hair to quit falling out.

As for the other little bugs you are describing. They almost sound like body lice. Take a look at this page about what do body lice look like and see if they resemble what you are seeing.

Knowing what these tiny light brown/clear bugs are will make it a lot easier to know what is the best way to deal with them.

Usually essential oils that have antiparasitic properties, like lavender, tea tree, oregano, and neem oil are pretty effective. They can be mixed with olive oil or coconut oil and then used as a topical application on your skin.

Hope you are able to get rid of the problem completely as I know how difficult it can be to find affordable housing on a limited budget.

To your good health!

Unidentified Parasite NEW

Kleen Green is fantastic for drying out and getting rid of parasites in skin. We also use dandruff shampoo, dawn dishwashing liquid to bathe and shampoo with. And, I know this sounds weird but wetting Charmin Ultra toilet paper with really cold water or as hot as you can stand it water and wipe the areas that are bothering you that whatever this is just keeps coming out (looks like white tissue pieces but it's streams of larva and eggs. The tissue looks like it's disintegrating buts it's really what's coming out that's tearing the tissue up quickly. But soak in the kleen green bath and wow in few weeks what a difference. Now, this isn't saying you aren't still going to hurt,itch, etc.. It seems like, with us anyway, that what's in you has to come out.
