Itchy skin parasites can be from bird mites and rat mites. Imagine this: You're cleaning the garage and behind some boxes you find an abandoned nest of mice. You move everything out of the way, use a broom to sweep up nest, and a vacuum cleaner to remove the last remnants of the nest and any droppings near by.
Or imagine this: you notice an uninhabited bird nest on the outside one of your windows. You simply take a stick and knock it to the ground. As it falls you notice some dust. It's in one large clump so you just pick up with your bare hands and throw it into the garbage.
And then within 24 hours or so you're skin is itching relentlessly. And then it feels as though something is crawling on your skin. You take a hot shower and for a while feel relieved. However, it's short term and within hours you're once again itching.
You begin to wonder what was in that abandoned nest of mice or the bird nest. It must have been bird mites or rat mites, right? But nothing in your medicine chest works. You rush out to the pharmacy and purchase some Rid or Nix thinking that you'll end the problem once and for all--maybe it's lice.
For a day or so, there's relief, but then the itching skin and biting sensations return full force resulting in bite marks and rashes. This means a visit to the doctor. He prescribes Elimite and or Lindane and now you return home in anticipation to ending this itchy skin and biting once and for all. Again, you feel better for a couple three days and again the itching skin returns full force--the medication is not working. In the meantime your significant other has begun with itchy skin. It's driving you both crazy. You both shower and instead of feeling better afterwards, you begin itching as soon as you dry your body.
You return to your doctor and in spite of bite marks and rashes he can't identify your problem and refers you to a dermatologist.
The dermatologist is stupefied and prescribes Diprolene and an antibiotic. Again there's temporary relief for a few days. But overall your condition is worsening. You begin wondering if your children or anyone else with whom you are in contact are at risk.
What has happened? The bird nest or mice nest was infested with mites carrying skin parasites. The vacuum cleaner neatly removed them from the garage floor and spread them all over the garage and your body. When the bird nest fell, the dust was full of mite carrying parasites that contacted your skin. You scratched your itchy skin and spread them with your fingernails to other parts of your body. They were also on the bottom of your soles and you walked them all over your home.
As the skin parasites hatched and multiplied on your skin, they:
1. Laid eggs that were deposited where ever you sat and in whatever you wore, in your bedding, your towel, and in the carpet or flooring near your feet.
2. Attempted to bore into your skin by biting you causing the bite marks. The rash is simply a bacterial infection as a result of the bite marks.
The skin parasites are known as one of more of the following:
2. Collembola (spring tails)
3. Strongyloides stercoralis
And the fact is that nearly all physicians are totally inexperienced with their treatment for there are no diagnostic tests available for two of them and the third (the strongyloides) is a rare nematode requiring a wormer which again physicians are inexperienced in it's treatment.
The CDC is just beginning research on Morgellons and most doctors (in spite of unexplained fibers on the sufferer's body) don't believe in the existence of Morgellons.
Suffering from skin parasites raises some important questions. How do you bathe? What skin creams or lotions provide results? How do you get skin parasites out of your bedding, furniture, rugs…? Although your doctor has no answers to these questions there are real down to earth answers as well as a special diet to get your life back to normal.
