Zit with a bug in it???
Ever heard of a zit with a bug in it?
My teenage daughter has been troubled with painful zits all over her body for a while now. She had a zit pop up on the front of her thigh last Saturday.
She tried to pop it earlier in the week and it just hurt. Nothing came out.
Then she squeezed it this morning. Boy did it pop!
She wiped the pus away and looked at it before she threw the tissue away.
There was a BUG that came out of her skin with the pus!!!
She was really freaked out, as was I.
I didn't see the bug, but she drew a picture of it for me.
What kind of bug could do this? Could it cause other problems?
I honestly don't know what kind of bug would be in this pimple. There are a number of different parasites that you can get under the skin.
Has your daughter been swimming in a lake or some other type of water where she could have been infected?
If she is continuing to get these painful pimples, then I would say that it shouldn't be overlooked. Any time that parasites are left to grow and breed in your system, they do eventually cause further problems.
Consider getting your daughter some anti-parasitic essential oil so that she can apply it to the affected areas. She may even want to put some in her bath water and have a nice soak. Good choices are tea tree oil, Indian neem oil, oregano oil, or garlic oil.
Another good option to try is organic raw apple cider vinegar topically. I like Bragg's brand. Raw apple cider vinegar can also be used in a bath (1-2 cups at a time).
Internally, you should consider some cleansing herbs and some good probiotics. I would suggest Para 90
. If these pimples have been a long term problem for your daughter, a three-month cleanse with Herbal Fiberblend
would seem appropriate.
This will help kill off parasites internally, flush toxins out of her body, and build up the good bacteria in your daughter's immune system.
Hope this helps and that she is "bug free" and "pimple free" very soon.
