Skin Parasites that make your skin crawl are here to stay. They appear to itch from under your skin and are impervious to all standard medical treatments. Elimite and Quill will give you a four day reprieve and then the itching returns and it's relentless. The only thing that helps are hot (almost scalding) baths and then only for a few hours. They are indeed skin parasites from hell.

What's worse is that once you are infected, everything in your environment becomes contaminated or infected with them. You can also be highly contagious.

How does one get these skin parasites? The skin parasites can be transmitted direct from any one of many types of mites from an infected animal--rat mites, mice mites, bird mites, or any mite that takes up residence on animals. The skin parasites can also be transmitted by coming in contact with an infected animal's feces such as mice or rat feces, bird feces--even cat or dog feces.

Indirectly, the skin parasites can be transmitted from anything that has been worn or in contact with an infected person--clothing, rugs, furniture, jewelry...
Yes, sitting in an airplane seat after it has been sat in by an infected person is all that's required to become infected with these parasites. The same is true from barber's chairs,

The only good news is that relatively speaking very few people are infected with these skin parasites--less than ten thousand in the entire country and not all of them are contagious.

What are these horrific skin parasites? The most popular one--the one that has gained the most media attention--is Morgellons. Relentless itching is only the first symptoms of Morgellons. Soon skin rashes develop along with lesions that don't heal. Many sufferers report string-like fibers (some like loose cotton balls) along with black specs. The unfortunate reality is that there are no known diagnostic tests available to identify the skin parasites and no known medical treatment. The afflicted also notice that with continued infection they may actually cough up worms or larvae.

According to the experts there are several things to look for on your body to determine if you may be infected with skin parasites.
• Non healing lesions or sores.
• Fibers or filaments on skin at various non-healing sites where the skin parasites reside. You can see it with the use of a jeweler's loop and they are also fluorescent under a ultra violet light.
• Cotton-like balls on your body without any reasonable explanation.
• Intense itching skin.
• Stinging or biting.
• Hair loss.
• Chronic fatigue.
• Brain fog.
• Hard nodules under the skin.
• Fibromyalgia or joint swelling and pain.
• Black specs on the skin and bed sheets.
• Presence of tiny strawberry type of spots--look like bright red blood spots just under the skin.

Any three or more of these symptoms are associated with the Morgellons parasite plus a co infection of protozoan and or Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is scary but real. The infecting organisms such as mites also pass along Lyme disease and or Protozoan infection. It's like a double whammy. The infected one spends a lot of time in doctor's offices only to be told that nothing can be identified. Helpful doctors throw at it everything they can in terms of prescription creams used for scabies, ring worm and so on, but nothing works for more than a few days. Unhelpful doctors suggest that the symptoms are caused by stress and in "one's head."

With no help from the medical community, the afflicted one turns to the internet where they learn of Morgellons and other skin parasites in the form of Collembola (Spring Tails) and nematodes such as Strongyloides Stercoralis

The internet, although very informative, is a shocking confusing world with many posting sites sounding of gloom and doom and many sketchy details of treatments.

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 to get your life back to normal.
