Like you I’ve had the same results in biopsy, culture everything. They’ve referred me to a well know medical center they put me on numerous prescriptions and skin creams. I’m literally embarrassed to walk out the house. I don’t know what else to do. Your situation is to t if what’s been going on for almost a year. It’s a nightmare and depressing.

Have you had any results?

Default I have had almost the exact same thing!

I also have had a similar experience. Same description except the little black bugs and white worms would also infest my rectum and I honestly don't know how far they went up there. I appear to have gotten rid of them but need to test it.

What happened? Infested from using a bed where a woman and possibly her dog slept.

What worked?

Osha--a medicinal root is an antiparasitic but in order to work it needs to be chighly concentrated and applied topically. I recommend looking into the process to make marijuana resin or hash oil as an example that might allow you to make something concentrated enough from the root. It only works when APPLIED TOPICALLY.

I tried applying just the osha tincture that can be found in some health food stores to each of my chakras. Just enough to get each chakra moist--except the root-- that would burn. It dries really quickly as tinctures are made with alcohol. The first time it made a lot of them jump off of me. Some were dead some were alive afterward that had jumped off.

The cycle from egg to bug appears to be 9-12 days for what I had so 2 weeks would theoretically get rid of them if it got them all off. However they can be difficult to get out of clothing, upholstery, and a house. I have not had to do that since I am homeless but I did have to get rid of all of my stuff numerous times because those ones did not die from the washer and dryer on hot.

I wasn't able to get rid of what I had using osha because of a lack of money. No matter what treatment I used I could only do it for two weeks and then that was it for the rest of the month; but I believe it could possibly work. However I did have them start coming out of my but alive after using osha for 5 days in a row-- I applied the timcture topically to my chakras every 4 hours-- I did have to wake up in the middle of the night to do this. The ones coming out of my butt were alive and would crawl around my groin area. I could not wash them off due to being homeless and needing to use something like rubbing alcohol to wash them off because like lice they grip the hair too strongly. I could pull some off but not all. Rinsing down there with some water mixed with a couple of dropperfuls of the osha helped but didn't do the trick. Sadly they can crawl from the butt into the vagina and infest it too.

Then the treatment would have to stop beforeI got rid of them all because of a lack of money. So they got resistant.

I eventuality used advantix on them for extra large dogs. It is a neurotoxin and because it is not made for humans I can not recommend it however it looks as if it might have worked. I hope it did. I had to follow up with a second dose on myself. It would have been good to do it a week later but I had to wait 3 weeks because of issues related to homelessness.

You can try diatomaceous earth for 48 hours to a week to try to get them out of your home. I would also get vacuum sealed bags and use the diatomaceous earth on your clothes.. but what you have might be killed by the washer and dryer--which would make it a lot easier. Also freezing them might kill them. My experience is it takes about a week of extremely cold weather to kill them off from any area. Below freezing.

I think they are a type of sand flea that a lot of dogs get now. I think they are from a foreign country and I think a lot of people have them and don't notice due to smoking weed or drywhich partially numbs people. Also a side effect of any substance overuse or abuse is to go into denial (more than normal) about things that are unpleasant that the person doesn't want to believe.

If you want to ask me any questions or know more about my experience please E'mail me at [email]poetryactivism@gmx.com[/email]. Other people have had similar experiences to what you describe. You are not alone. Doctors tend to insist any bug issue that doesn't match the description of lice isn't real in this country for some reason even though it's actually common amongst poor people who are malnourished.

Oh yeah... Eating coconut oil can also expel them. I tried eating two tablespoons of it in turmeric tea made with one tsp of turmeric powder 3 times a day. It greatly helped but I am intolerant to coconut oil and had to stop. I had to work up to taking that much coconut oil slowly as I got a very strong die off reaction when I tried to take two teaspoons twice the second day.

Also I have a history of MS too. I reversed it by changing my diet and going gluten free and eliminating foods I was intolerant to. In addition I am also low in vitamin D and my receptors for Vitamin D could work better. I also have to take a b complex for the B6, I have to take methylated B12 because my body is too low in methyl groups to activate it and I have to take methylated folate because I am too low in methyl groups to activate folic acid from my diet. Taking those supplements saved my memory and my nervous system.

I recommend looking up Dr Axe and gluten intolerance and MS online to look further if you want.

Firstly, I deal with chronic pain, and my pain level is high every day. The drs at Mayo, haven't and able to put all the symptoms together, but they are very similar to MS and Lupus. I also have fibromyalgia and shingles. It causes depression due to not being able to escape from the pain, and is very stressful.

About five months ago I brought home a puppy that was infested with ticks. It caused a major tick infestation in my house and I've spent the last five months battling it, but I believe it's under control.

About three months ago my head started itching terribly along with my face. I started thinking I had to see ticks on my head and my face was just dry due to showering so much.

I stopped wearing make up and I started moisturizing my face all the time to get rid of the dryness to no avail.

In June, I got a call that my daughter was in a terrible accident. She jumped in the pool and broken her neck. They had to put her neck back together and it was in and out of intensive care and the hospital four times and we almost lost her each time. She stayed with me for two months after being released from the hospital and my symptoms started getting worse. I would feel crawling and biting and when I went to the area, it was red and there were bumps and a lot of the time I was able to pick off a tiny dark gray bug. A few times they were wormlike parasites. My daughter started thinking I was losing it.

After my daughter went home and life was to go back to normal my symptoms continued to get worse. Tiny white things that look like an opaque grain of salt started appearing out of my skin along with tiny bright white mites, and I even showed my daughter one of the white things as it was coming out of my skin.

It got worse and worse and I went to a walk-in clinic and he did everything but call me crazy. I did research on the Internet and my symptoms fit Demodex mites, except that you aren't supposed to be able to see them and I could definitely see these. In desperation, I went to a dermatologist who took a biopsy of a bump on my arm, but he wasn't familiar with any skin parasites. He went out of town before giving me any results so I went to another dermatologist. He said he was familiar with Demodex, but that my parasite didn't fit that description, Nor anything else he was familiar with.

I took in some of the parasites and the salt grain like things, and we looked at them under a microscope. He said that he couldn't rule out that they were bugs, but he believed that they weren't. He said that the egg like things could be from my hair follicle and were the bulbs that each hair follicle holds, because they sometimes come out. Keep in mind that one one night I moisturized, I shed about 50 to 100 of these in a two hour period. He asked me if I would be upset if he told me that he didn't think they were parasites.

He said he thought it was delusional parasitosis. I told him I would love nothing better than to have this because it would mean I didn't have parasites. He gave me some information on this condition and it made me so happy and relieved because I told him that I would rather be crazy then has these. I continue to get the biting and stinging and I still pick these things off of me.

I continue to get red marks and have had a few of the wormlike parasites again. In the meantime, the first dermatologist got the biopsy results back and it showed Anthropod reaction. When I told the second dermatologist, he said that unless they found bug parts in it, it could be other things as well and he still wasn't convinced.

Yesterday I decided that I was not going to let this turn me into a crazy person and stay suicidal, spending every available moment picking these off of me. I came home from work, and got in the mindframe that these things weren't really happening to me, as I was trying to make excuses for each of my symptoms. Then the stinging started again, where I was able to pick more off of me along with the salt grain like eggs. Let me mention, that some of my health issues are nonexistent vitamin D in my blood, abnormal lymphocytes in my blood for over a year.

I'm finding it really hard to believe that these aren't really bugs, when they leave a mark, get red and I'm able to show that there was something that I'm able to pick off at the same time. Last night I found a healed bite and it had a black dot in the middle. I scraped and scraped til the black dot came off, and underneath was a little pit , with what looked to be one of the worm bugs, dried up. Probably due to the ivermectin topical I used last week. I have another one of these on my stomach, but probably more.

I have tried so hard to explain the sharp stings as being shingles, which I've had in the past. I am not hoping to convince anyone that these are real, I am hoping someone help me find answers as to why they are not. I really need help us I'm at the end of my rope and don't how much longer I can do this. Anyone?
really awful, I hope you get better. sorry I had to add a few paragraphs in order to actually read it.

Since this all started with a puppy, did you take the dog to the vet to identify the parasite and then the correct way to treat it? Lots of MDs are not familiar with the diseases/parasites that can be transmitted from animal to human. Having a vet identify and then treat the puppy would have given you info to take to an MD. Do you still have the puppy?

Sorry to hear about what you are going through. Ditto for turmeric, and supplement forms that are hydro-soluble may absorb even better than ordinary spice, food form.

First of all I want to tell you that you are not crazy and not delusional and neither am I. I have been experiencing the same exact ordeal for the past 18 months. In my findings I have found exactly as you stated the salt like Eggs, the gray bug, the worm, the pit, you name it this is identical to everything I have been experiencing. I have used ivermectin literally on a daily basis for probably 12 months. Still I'm the only one in the house having issues my husband has never been bitten but he did have a small rash for about an hour one day. I have also been to the dermatologist ,7 doctors, and three health departments and no one can seem to tell me what is going on. I'm sorry I do not believe in Morgellons disease for myself because there is actual proof of what I'm saying but no one will listen - that's the freaking problem. I will not accept that I'm delusional! I am a professional in business and highly intelligent and it just does not fit. Morgellons Disease is used too widely for anyone that they can not explain what's going on with their skin condition - so they just tell you you're crazy instead of really trying to find out the reason of what's happening. So in saying all this, I have decided I will not go back to a doctor and when anybody around me says hey what is this ??? And will reply "I have no clue what you are talking about.... because I am too to my wits end over anybody and everybody involved in this ordeal... But if I can help them I will cuz I don't want anyone to go through this.

I know it's hard to believe the mind could be powerful enough to create real physical symptoms, but it is.

Don't continue to live such a miserable life without trying ALL avenues of treatment
YEPPERS, OP, way too many words in your post. But, a Psych eval is appropriate

OK then.

High intelligence/high functioning does not guarantee you can't suffer from delusions. A big part of the problem is absolute belief that there IS no delusion.
