hello willtheory, sorry I'm so late in replying, the cause being continual fatigue and of course this wretched infection.
anyway how are you these days, still on the injectable ivermectin taking orally? Does this med have any affect on your paras, are you still suffering and have you tried anything new lately?
I think you could be right that mine might be related to a disseminated tape or even fluke that is in the tissue and skin, this has crossed my mind before, maybe a co-infection so I'm going to describe, not an easy task, what the skin and tissue manifestations are like.
I have a build up of white circular threadlike shapes coming developing into confluent patches, the tiny white thin worm and a few larger, displaying a sort of condensed circular threadlike appearance that run confluent into other with the ones already there. This is all over my face and body I should expect too, but not so noticable on the body. I also have the thicker white worm shapes too that are not circular patcheds and I have never had any para exit from my skin, what I see on the skin surface is calcification but of course at a deeper level they are alive and reproducing as I can feel them move at times. I can see also a few longer segmented white shapes too.
Amongst all this I have white hard lumps under the skin, not that big, like a hard pimple, all this if without any inflammation. I can still cover my skin with makeup with disquises it appearance but now my skin is not like it was, smooth and healthy looking and an uneven texture because of the lumps underneath in the skin tissue.
what I have explained above, the skin manifestation are connected to the movement activity and hatching that is described in my previous messages, these skin manisfestations are a product of the heightened activity I've had since last autumn.
but my scalp is different, it has inflammed lumps, like spots or boils and sometimes the whole scalp skin area is pink and sore, now I have just for these sore lumps that never heal, nothing comes out of them, no pus. I have about 6 to 8 of these scalp lumps at any time, this has gone on for a few years now.
I still feel some activity every few days, not extreme but still causing red flash marks that come up in the skin and take mintues to subside.
[Q] - Ivermectin has not really done anything to control it so I wondering if you know of any other med. apart from Prazi, that works systemically throughout the body tissue for tapes? I think there none, can't remember the names now, N - I think is one but they work only on the intestinal/colon area.
I'm started taking 1.5ml to 2ml of the Ivermectin injectable in a protein drink yesterday when the horse paste ran out.
I now eat raw garlic every day and take 4 large Clove capsules. I think my intestinal/colon is clear, I see no evidence of paras in my stool and feel no discomfort intestinally.
The meds and supplement that did aggravate them most were ABZ, Prazi, Iodine. I would like to avoid taking Prazi again as it was hard to take but not sure if the other tape meds are really systemic in action.
should have sent this message privately, but I'm not going to re-do it, maybe it will be of use to others for recognition.
I have used a different username but I think you will know who this is from.
