Please help me. I have an infestation, eggs are blood/rust red, sticky, caustic, and appear in my stool, menstrual blood, out my skin in what I thought was bad acne; the bugs themselves are small like fleas, doctors say they are lice (yes they are in my head, eggs under the skin beneath scabs, tough to remove due to stickiness) Rid and Nix do NOT work; don't know how long I have had them; recently very bad - also, am an intravenous drug user, could I have picked up some eggs in my cocaine??
I doubt very much that you picked up the eggs in cocaine, especially since I imagine if you are shooting it up, you would cook it first and that would kill them (of course dirty needles are a whole nother story). If they are lice they can be transmittied quite easily through contact with other people of virtually any kind.
But the main thing here is not where you got them but how to get rid of them. Cocaine can mess up your body's chemistry to the point that you would have great difficulty in absorbing any treatment protocol for these little buggers. So that is a concern.
I would say as a guess that a parasite tincture (in liquid form) that contains wormwood, clove, and green Black-Walnut hull may help, but I don't know how safe that would be combining the use of that with the use of cocaine. You may shock your system too badly.
Your biggest problem right now is your drug problem. Period. I would recommend that you would get great benefit from going to either Narcotics Ananymous or Cocaine Anonymous and get clean. And no, I am not just preaching here, I had to do the same thing. You will get so much loving support from the people there, no matter where you are. There are meetings everywhere.
Using cocaine makes it hard to deal with everyday things in a rational way. Your body also may not be able to get rid of these lice as it is already burdened by your system trying to handle the cocaine.
My heart goes out to you. It's totally up to you what you want to do. Best of luck and my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Ali, you have a good point, I would like to mention that the immune system is highly compromised when using any type of recreational drug. Don't expect the body t be able to fight this infestation while your still using.
OK, so I grabbed a couple of the little buggers out of my feces (yes, I washed my hands and used alcohol on them also). Again, they are red, flealike and profuse. Identification, at the least, would be appreciated. And yes, I know all about the drug thing, so unless anyone has info re: ingestion via IV use, that would be appreciated; otherwise, please keep that aspect out of the discussion, it is very well known to me and I am aware of everything and more that anyone could possibly tell me in that regard. Your concern is appreciated, though.
Well I wish I could tell you I know what those are. It's intersting that their infestaiton is both internal and external. I really think what kittywinters said will help for the topical portion. Try taking as many epsom baths as you can, and try to stayin the bath at least 45 minutes.
Internally, things that will help internal parasite infestation should help here as well, is my thinking. Try to avoid ALL foods that have sugar. Most parasites that I have read about thrive on sugar. If you can, try to stick to a diet of mostly raw vegetables and avoid processed flour and caffeine.
If you can, I would say do a colema or get a colonic. Oh! Here's one that's cheap and effective - get some RAW pumkin seeds - these kill parasites as well. Also, another cheap thing that will help is eating fresh, raw, organic garlic cloves. You may want to start off by eating 2-3 a day. Garlic is excellent for killing parasites.
I'll try to do some research on the lice, see what I find.
I think swishing with hydrogen peroxide would do the trick. Also baking soda and water can be a good thing to swish with.
Please be careful with whatever you try internally though, and kittywinters had a good point about the ES baths - I feel bad that I didn't think that that might strain you to do so long. Sometimes after getting out of the bath one can feel a bit lightheaded so be careful. Just try to listen to your body.
Also, staying hydrated is a good idea. You don't want to throw off your elecrolytes so I recommend reading about the "water cure" on this site. This can be very healing especially as your body is trying to deal with whatever these critters are.
