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.
Ali, I think it may be some sort of mite. Also, 45 minutes in Epsom Salt will have a strong effect the first time. I am assuming that her health is in poor condition all-around. 45 minute in ES may be a bit strong for her cardiovascular and central nervous system. What do you think?
You're probably right. At this point it is hard to say what her system can handle aside from the topical stuff. Perhaps just trying a little bit at a time to see what works is best. I do worry about a shock to the system of any of these.
"Mite: a minute arachnid with a flat alst transparent body and four pairs of legs. Many species of these rlatives of ticks and spiders are parasitic. including the chigger and sarcoptes scabiei, which cause localixed pruritus and inflammation. Some female mites burrow into the skin and lay eggs that hatch into larvae; the movemnt of the larvae cause intese itching" 4# Mosby's dictionary:1994 page 1004
When they feed, they turn red due to their transparent body. Also, see if you have a nest around, or in the walls of your bedroom. Sometimes a nest can be found near the bed and this is a way to become infected.
Also, for the HIV and immune compromised individuals, systemic (all over body) infestations can occur.
It could be lice too, because they can spread to the body as well, but they do not burrow under the skin as do mites.
Were you able to get rid of these bugs? The last time I smoked Coke I definitely inhaled these bugs and I have been tortured since then which was 3 months ago. My Dr said it is severe allergies and dermatologist says it is a common skin condition where people feel bugs on them but they are really not there. I can see them in the light when I wipe me hair fast or shake my clothes. They ARE REAL and I want them gone. I promised my wife and myself that I will never smoke crack again. I even prayed to God to remove this affliction and infestation from me and I will be a better person. I have tried RID, Tree Oil lotion and shampoo but they have not gone away. There are what seems like millions of them.
I find myself drinking more and more alcohol just to numb the sensation and that is not where i want to go.
Please help me if someone knows a way to get rid of them.
Look forward to some relief
See the link below for the parasite cleansing information.
I think it will rid the parasites from the body internally.
Externally, I think that you should soak in a hot, hot tub of water with 5 cups of Epsom Salt (ask your pharmacy), along with a half a cup of iodize salt (regular table salt ). I think this will work due to osmotic pressure. I think the bugs will sort-of crenate: the water in sides of the bugs cells will leave; this will cause it to die. Soak for 20 -uninterrupted -minutes. Don't forget to soak your hair too.
If you are a man, cut your hair down to 3mm, or 1/8in. Shave your entire body. Try to remove all body hair. Every one living with you must do this. It is up the girl how short she wants to cut her hair.
Go and get a bottle of tea tree oil and every morning ( one, or two drops only ) rub this full strength in to your hair. Leave it in all day, too. It has a pleasant smell and seems to fade through out the day. For the body, I would mix four drops of Tea tree oil with any oil available in the house. So you can spread the Tea tree oil all over your body. Tea tree oil is strong, so don't over use it. You can do this for a week and then drop to once a week for several months.
Clean all your laundry at a laundry mat. When you go to dry your laundry, dry all your clothing for an hour. No less! This will kill the eggs. Bag up any items that may hold bugs, or eggs. Vacuum the carpets, and spray surface of your bed with tea tree oil and water. For your pillow, purchase the child, or allergy pillow case: they are plastic and zip up. They only cost $1.00. This is hard to sleep on for a few says, but is so important.
Below are some links to look at to get you started.
"Certain mites migrate from birds, rodents, food materials, vegetable matter and house dust, either attacking or annoying humans. Some mites can be detected with a hand lens, while others require microscopic examination of skin scraping or even dust from vacuum cleaner bags. Mite irritations can be confused with entomophobia (fear of insects) in certain people. Mite diagnosis is often difficult because specimens must be collected and identified by trained specialists before treatment can be made."
Tropical Rat Mite
This mite will feed on humans even when rats are present, causing painful bites, intense itching and dermatitis. Barely visible, they are bright red to black with white markings and are usually noticed on walls in basements, kitchens, bathrooms and where rats are found. Mites drop from their host after each blood meal and can survive several days without feeding
Could it be scabies? Look on webmd.com for more info.
What is scabies?
Scabies is a very itchy skin condition caused by tiny mites that burrow into the outer layers of the skin. The most common form of scabies is called papular scabies. See an illustration of scabies.
What are common symptoms of scabies?
Scabies causes severe itching that is usually worse at night. Small children and older adults tend to have the most severe itching. Children typically have the most severe skin reactions to scabies.
It takes several weeks after first-time exposure to scabies mites for itching and skin sores to develop. After a reinfestation, however, the symptoms take only a few days to develop.1
How is scabies transmitted?
The barely visible scabies mites are typically spread by close contact with an infested person. It is also possible for scabies mites to spread via shared personal belongings, such as towels and linens.
Scabies can be spread during the entire time a person is infested, even during the weeks before symptoms appear. It commonly affects several family members during the same period of time.
How is scabies diagnosed?
Your health professional may be able to diagnose scabies based on your symptoms and those of people you have close contact with. If your skin condition is difficult to diagnose, your health professional can gently scrape some dry skin from the affected area and examine it for signs of mites under a microscope.
How is scabies treated?
Scabies does not go away on its own. A prescription treatment is necessary to cure scabies; the scabies mite is resistant to nonprescription-strength medications. Your health professional will likely prescribe a medicated topical cream. Depending on the medication, you may be advised to repeat the treatment a week later. For severe, difficult-to-treat scabies, an oral medication called ivermectin is available.
Some scabies medications are not safe for use by children, babies, pregnant or breast-feeding women, or the elderly. To avoid dangerous side effects, be sure to strictly follow your health professional's instructions for use; only repeat a treatment when clearly advised to do so. This is particularly important when using lindane (Kwell), which can cause neurological problems if misused.2
If you have scabies, you and any household members and close physical contacts must all be treated at once. This prevents the mites from being passed back and forth from person to person. Careful washing of clothes and bedding is also necessary.
sarcoptes scabiei: I posted this first, but now I think it it wrong. The female goes deep into the skin while the male goes around fertilizing eggs. So while the male can be seen, the skin has grayish lines all around the infested area. She did not mention these gray lines.
Yes, it probably is from the cocaine!!! Don't suppose your from MA by any chance.
I smoke, and I noticed that I kept getting this parasite. Some of them are red, some are greyish and flat, and then I noticed that some look almost like translucent/whitish tiny little "worms", for lack of a better word, and last, but not least, I noticed this whitish, "stringy" looking stuff that kept coming out of my skin.
My doctor first diagnosed this as scabies. I DON'T THINK SO! I'm a nurse, and it's not any scabies I've ever seen. Plus, I have them in my lungs also.
I finally realized that they were coming from the coke. Even though I cooked it, they didn't die. They also didn't die when I put the flame to it. It's like they were being carried in the smoke. I know that sounds strange, but, after I blew out smoke, I could feel them falling on me.
You want to get a prescription from your doctor for Permethin. Although this medication is in both Rid and Nix, the dose is much smaller. You could try Rid or Nix again, and make sure you leave it on for 12-14 hours. You won't kill them if you do a shorter time. I would definitely get the prescription from a doctor though. It's the best way to go. Because if it's from the coke and you were shooting up, you can bet that these little buggers are in all of your body systems! Just treating your skin will not help.
Any way, I definitely am with you on where it came from though. I am 100% positive I got it from the cocaine. I did a little experiment. After cooking some up, I let it soak in Rid, and watched as some bugs and this white stuff came out of the cocaine. I then soaked it in bleach and watched more bugs come out.
This is very important information. You hit the nail right on the head, Jellobeanie. Those filaments you see eminating from the end of your pipe are indeed non-cellulose fibrous matter which various parasites and other insects feed on. I also have them in my lungs, feces, etc. They are red, as you described. Right now the parasites are not as much of a concern as the filaments are. These filaments in turn feed on the dead nerve endings we create when smoking/shooting. They attach themselves and burrow very deep. Getting one out of your skin could cause ripples moving from the filament to another area, often a vein; and a temporary pain deep in the muscles. I took a hit a couple nights ago and now, without aggravation to the area, I have a muscular spasm/pain in my shoulder blade, and it is not going away. I suggest STRONGLY you check out the links I have attached. You will definitely recognize the filaments as shown on the Morgellon Foundation website. Please register your symptoms as I did. I hate to say this, but terrorists/the US gov. use drugs to cripple/eliminate the "dredges" of society (this is why they keep them illegal) and I wonder whether there is a subversive connection to the proliferation of this syndrome and the acts of 9/11; etc.
Thanks so much for your verification of my "diagnosis". Remember, however, that getting rid of the bugs that feed on the filaments only leaves the filaments without a predator. Each time you clean up (I have used Permethrin 5% as you described), you only leave yourself open to an increased infestation. I have had them drop off me, too (had to smoke in the bathtub to confirm my suspicions)and they are definitely more profuse after application and also, on the first day of my period (body getting rid of waste).
Focus on the filaments, shave your body (your head hair probably "attacks" you, getting in your nose and mouth - if your eyebrows and hair are very shiny and pull out easily, the filaments have wired themselves to your hair). Use conditioner and hair spray on your head to tame them. Use very hot water and a Qtip to pull the filaments from nasal cavities. Pull (yes, dig and pull with fingernails) the shiny stringy shit from any wounds or lesions. It will hurt like a hangnail, but keep it up. Two lesions I had which were red, swollen and bloody are now completely healed due to the diligent removal of these fibers.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU and please, keep in touch. (I am in Milwaukee.)
P.S. Smoke the purest powder you can get, from a reputable source. Rock seems to carry more.
The Morgellons are in love with acidic environments. Cocaine is VERY alkaline (the opposite to acidic).
When you alkalize your body with cocaine the morgs attempt to evacuate the scene via fibres that emerge from the pores OR the holes you created while shooting up!.
This can be very disturbing and the more alkalinity, the more noticable the morgs become under the skin.
Once I injected so much cocaine my whole body erupted with bid lumps under my skin that looked like slugs or somethind. they were symetrically placed on each side of my face, body and this lasted for 10 minutes. I almost had a heart attack when I looked in the mirror.
Morgellons is the craziest disorder I know of and it definately was created by man and has a VERY sinister , underlying purpose that I really don't want to explore any further.
if it really is possible to rid your body of these creatures, the key is alkalinity. If your diet makes your body acidic, you will NEVER get rid of them.
Take it from chemalien, you are what you eat.
Junk food, POP, CHIPS, all the goodies are feeding the morgs, they love us JUNKIES and crave the Sugar more than us.
Acidic environments are attractive to the little buggers.
Hey there, I found this site bc I googled exactly what is happening to u.
And I did that bc it's happening to me too. I snort cocaine and each time I do, parasitic worms develope rapidly in my sinus cavity and the evidence soon shows it'self within 2 hrs after I blow my nose. I am in aggreeance w you that it's the cocaine. After doing lots of research I have found out that there is a type of parasite that exists in tropical areas (where cocoa leaves are grown) and they specifically love these plants. Therefore cocaine is filled w up to hundreds of thousands of the parasitic eggs. This parasite has taken over my body they are in every organ. I can assume that thru the blood stream this would happen a lot quicker. Please let me know if I can help. I just purchased a parasitic cleanse- only problem is that if u do the bitch again. It will start all over.
Let me know if u need any info
