Had these about 2 years now, first thought they were Scabies, but doesn't respond to medicine for that.
What I have is small microscopic things that come out of my skin pores, granular, like a piece of sand, some are white, some are black, some are pulpy, some are hard, jagged, sharp.
Having used my cheap microscope, I have been able to find eggs, and brush off round black cells from my body into the toilet water. I have been able to take these cells, and look at them under the microscope. While watching them, after a few minutes they will start to get a dimple in the middle of the cell, and that dimple will continue to rise, and turn itself into one of those granular objects.
I have been able to put those granular objects under the microscope, and find what looked like a hole in the back of the object, with these small black round cells around it. I am assuming that this might be the thing's Uterus, and those are eggs being shoved out.( I figure this is the female) I was able to make out a possible mouth on one end, but the lighting was not good to confirm it. I was able to see small tubes sticking outside the item around it. I originally thought that was possible legs, but after leaving this a week, and coming back to look at it again, I found those tubes had grown really long sprouting out from it's body. I now think these are feeder tubes.
At night, I have to wear a shower cap to keep them from getting all over my face and pillow. I can hear them either jump off my head and hit the shower cap, or feel them let themselves go loose and fall out of my head pores and hit the shower cap.
I was able to get smaller specimens, (the ones that jumped) and see that they have a small paddle like tail behind them. They are NOT Spring Tails (I am thinking that these are the males).
If left to mature, they seem to want to dig down into the skin (pore) and make a red pimple with a hard white top. As the female lays it's eggs, the pimple gets higher. A small hole is open at the top to allow the newborns to come out.
They seem to like body heat and sweat. I am assuming that the eggs/round cells, have some means of crawling or propelling themselves, but my microscope is not good enough to see if that is the case.
Ivermectin is the only thing that will kill them when they dig in deep, but takes a few days. It feels like you are being cut by small razor blades when they dig.
I have to wash them off twice a day, takes about 3 hours each shower, only thing that helps get them cleaned out is Biore deep pour cleaning gel. SO far I have been able to keep the mature ones off of me, but I do not seem to be able to find anything that will kill these things.
I have to use Avon "Skin so Soft" in my ears at night, they seem to hate it, and it keeps them out of there.
Been through my MD, 2 Dermatologists, and a Specialist. They get to a point that they don't know what to do, or try to tell me that it is all in my mind. I let my wife wash off my back for a while (quit that in concern that she would get them), they nipped and bit at her as she would scrub them off. Got a lot of granules out of my back each night.
So far they don't seem to bother my wife or son. Hope I can keep it that way.
If I can find a better microscope or get a camera that would fit mine, I will post some pictures.
Does anybody have any thoughts on these. I know they are creatures of some sort, as they move, and will grow after being taken off my body. I have seen them jump and swim in the toilet water. This doesn't seem to be like Morgellon's, as I don't have any lesions or fibers.
They have turned my normal life into worthlessness, as most of my day is spent in the shower.
I have Morgellon's without lesions. I have small pimples and a rash on my hand. I get shards of glass like things coming out of my skin as well as granules and black specks. The fibers are hard to see without a black light. I don't see them jumping off my body but under the microscope, they have tubes like you describe. I have read that other Morgellon's people have described the black specks jumping off their body. The Ivermectin is used for Morgellon's and would help. Also, it could be causing them to jump and get away from your body. When I took Albenza, my Morgellon's reacted like crazy coming to the surface and that's when I noticed the fibers.
I'm not sure if this is what you have but it sounds similar to what others and myself experience. Maybe someone else has other ideas. Try taking a 1hr bath with 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup vinegar, Epsom Salts , and coconut oil and see if it gives you some relief. You may be able to get some samples from the water. Also, get a cheap black light and see if they are florescent.
I don't think it is Morgellons, from what I can see in the microscope (sure wish I had a scope camera on it). They start off as eggs, hatch ? into a small black cell, then morph into a granule.
I know that the granule (female) must get some blood from me before it matures. In the scope I can tell if they have a red center in them or not. They also move somehow, haven't been able to get a good light on top of them in the scope to see if I can see anything they could use for making motion. Occasionally do see something like small protruding hooks. After a few days of maturity, they start growing the tenacles. I am assuming that this is to find food for themselves. These would normally be expanding under the skin, and probably looking for a blood supply.
If one does get matured and stays in my skin, it feels like a razor blade cutting you. A small pimple will grow on the skin, and have a hard white top. There will be a really small hole in the top. As the female lays her eggs, the pimple gets higher.
These things are cold blooded and rely on me for their heat. They will stay somewhat dormant off the body, but become active if they come in contact with heat and sweat.
The males of the species seem to me smaller, and they are the "jumpers". They seem to grow small paddle like tales, and they are attracted to heat, and carbon dioxide. They nip at you if they jump onto you.
The Ivermectin is the only thing that will kill the females after they dig in deep, but it takes a few days to do so.
I have found that Biore "Deep pore scrub" makes them come to the surface (in several waves) to allow you to wash them off before they mature. My showers are 3 hours, twice a day.
I found out the hard way not to take a bath, as what you were stating to use, did in fact get them out of the skin, but they continued to float in the bath water, and nothing killed them, after several hours of continuous scrubbing in the bath, I finally figured out they were just going back into the pores. Then I got them in places that were originally clean of them.
Also Avon "Skin so soft" body oil keeps them out of my ears.
So far I haven't found out what they are or how to kill them, they seem to not be affected by most chemicals in the short run. Bleach, Ammonia, Borax, sulfur will kill them but it takes a while.
Beginning to wonder if this is man made "germ warfare". I can't find anything on the internet that even resembles this type of skin parasite.
Another reason that I don't think they are Morgellons is that they grow and move long after they have left the body.
I know to others reading this you sound insane. But I have seen these black specs on me, and after saturating myself in mineral oil I have seen the larvae or eggs on my skin. And the gritty black specs. The deep black ones are I bedded with some kind of burr or hook
Ok dear please go to your Doctor and get Amilsulpride. It cured me in 2 months.
I have been off medication for 8 months but am looking at changing my diet to alkaline so it dosn't come back.
I know people don't believe you.
Your not crazy!!! Sutherland Hospital in Sydney finally acknowledged after 6 months of crying, begging, thatI had a pysical problem. It is a phsyc drug, it just happens to work!!!!!! I did what your doing and more! Take evendence from the internet to the Doctor if they don't believe you.Good luck Nicky
Here on CZ they have a Morgellons forum. Perhaps they can give you some helpful input.
Your wife and son may not have the same problem that you have but the chances are they do have parasites and should be cleansing.
See link below for cayenne pepper challenge test to see if any of you have Tapeworms (sometimes one sees seseme seed looking things instead of “white rice”), for example. Hulda Clark says everyone she ever lab tested had Tapeworms & everyone had other kinds of parasites as well.
What helped me in case any of it can help you: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1522290#i
I really related to your story. I realize it's almost 2 years old and I'm wondering if you solved your problem or found out anything else. I am scheduled to have Terminix come out tomorrow to spray inside and outside our home. I'm praying that this will help me stop this nightmare I am now going through. I also am the only one in the home being affected by this unsolved mystery. I ordered a digital microscope last night from Amazon that someone on here referred me to. I've been wearing a 5 x's magnifying glass around my neck for a couple of months now (I kept losing it so I took a shoe string and tied it so I never lose it again) lol
I sure hope you solved your problem and also hope that you see this message and reply to me.
I don't know if you're still checking this thread, but if I were you, I would be applying coconut oil to the skin every day. Coconut oil helps bring these particles and the fibers up to the surface of the skin. This may give you some relief. Are you itchy?
For 2 years I watched volcanic sores on my body grow from 5 to 200! One yr. ago a scraping showed worm eggs, but biopsies showed nothing. After 50 to 75 hours of my own Research, I came up with MYASIS! I believe I have a RARE, but common in foreign lands, Parasite produced by one of 100 species of flies! A fly must have a Host. Usually the Host is an animal such as a Cow, sheep, goats, horses, or and so forth. To keep this short..Please look up Myasis and learn more about it. This may not even be what you have anyway.
Well, after opening up a few bumps on mt stomach and seeing hundreds of white eggs or larva pour out, I begged my Doctor for Ivermectin! This Parasite infection was also in my Breast and I have Silicone implants. I was afraid of losing them and I cannot afford a new set to repair them!
Well ...the medicene only killed a few "Bugs" and the Parasite continued to bite, eat holes in my arms and legs! The Doctor didnt seem to believe me anymore, so I ordered more Ivermectin Online and took double. It helped but didnt kill the entire Parasite because I take PREDNISONE for LUPUS and have a very LOW IMMUNE SYSTEM!
O.K. Well NOW It has gotton on my NOSE!! I am desperate! It is going to eat my face up! At this point I have nothing to lose I figure. Im going to kill myself if this goes further. The Doctor is trying to now cure the infection in the sores, but I now feel like I have GLASS sticking out of them! I run my fingers across the top of the sores and when I hit a snag of "GLASS" it is so strong, you could hang your purse from it! When you pull it out, it is soft!? It is the Parasite that is now dead and limp??
So...I too SPEND HOURS IN THE SHOWER! HERE'S WHAT I DID TO KILL THESE PUTRED KILLERS OF TIME AND LIFE.
I am NOT a Medical Doctor and cannot advise this remedy and say that you wont have side effects. So far I am fine. Remember....I was desperate. It has been only 2 days and the spot on my finger where the Parasite was separating my skin and living in between, has already healed up!! I think I will find out on my next shower that ALL the "GLASS" is gone! I went one mile down the road and bought a $5.00 tube of Horse IVERMECTIN GEL Apple flavored for a 1200 pound horse and ate HALF of it! I ate another 1/4 the next day. The remainder ...I rubbed on my skin. It doesnt work to rub on your skin...but I didnt want to be tempted to eat anymore! The Ivermectin for horses is about the same I believe as it is for Humans, only I am a 150lb Human and I ate enough for a 900 lb horse.
Sometimes you have to be your own Researcher and Doctor to save your Life. When I could NO LONGER BEAR IT...and I was trying to decide if I should use pills or a pistol....that's when that little apple gel at the feedstore seemed alright.
I wish you the best. Get well all!
I know this story was posted a while ago... but I was just wondering if there were any updates?
I also wanted to add that I truly relate to Kaywood's story. I too have come to the realization that this is some sort of miasis/ with a possible parasitic candida in the mix as well. I was prescribed some Ivermectin and antifungal Rx's about 2 years ago, when I could barely still afford a "Lyme-literate" doctor... but I don't remember thm helping all that much at the time (the drugs) for me. I'm thinking the dose was probably too low.
It would be lovely to hear how you all are getting on. I have hit an all time low... and I don't know if I can pull out of this one - or if I there's any hope left for me. Sorry - not meaning to be dramatic... it just is what it is.
I had the same thing for almost 3 years. Went to many Doctors, and like you said, they don't know how to treat it. I went to hell for three and half years. I am a Skin Care Specialist (Aesthetics), and after two years going to see many diferent doctors, and after lots of research I created a cream that make then go away. If you want to call me, I can tell what to do to get ride of this terrible thing.
Have you ever had surgical mesh inside of your body for any reason and has it been removed? Have you ever had the chicken pox or the vaccine shot and if so about how long ago? What year where you born male or female? Have you ever been on cipro or had and allergic reaction to antiboics? Have you ever taken a steroid or prensione for any reason which is a steroid?

I had the same thing for 5 months, treated with a month of invecterin, eurax, and several different chemicals applied to the skin which I found on UCLA dermatology website , if you still have them or want to talk about, I had doctors give up and say it was in my mmind etc, but other people saw the marks on my skin and my cats got it also.I did finally cure it, but was very difficult, email me at sleetsnow. at AOL
