I get rashes and tiny little marks on my skin,when I put lotion on them or scratch them I find little black specks buried in skin or on top of it,mainly on elbows,round my waist and on ,y shoulders and under my breast. What the he'll is this? I wonder if this is coming from my cat,who has been scratching and gnawing on his fur/skin. This is soo frustrating and embarrassing. I also have headaches and stifness of neck and shoulders constantly. Please help. Now my son is starting to have prickly patches of itching marks and I see black specks on his cheeks and on his arms,elbows. I certainly don't want my little 5 yr old suffering too:( Help!

Sorry to say this but its the same exact
symptoms as me & my 7yr old daughter have & I just got diagnosed with scabies! I'm sick about it! You better hurry and get to the doctor & to the vet because the longer you let it go the harder it'll be to get rid of them. Do
You guys have physical bumps & burrows under skin or like skin colored clusters of blister looking itchy bumps?

This also sounds like what some people describe as Morgellon's Disease.

thank you for your reply. Scabies is what I suspected,as an aunt of my husband had it,yet months ago. I ALS looked into morgellons ,but when I told doctor about my symptoms when I was hospitalized w bladder infection,they just thought I'm imagining things,said it may be bedbugs,to clean my sheets. That is not it! I itch and new specks appear. My husband even thought it's dirt on my skin ,as I rub on lotion,but now he has seen how cuts in the palms of my hands just appeared over night and I have scabs on knuckles,like I been cutting self on razor,out of nowhere. If I work out,it increases immediately and I get little red pin sized marks,like I been poked w tiny needels. Now I think hubby believes me,but doc didn't even scrape my skin for sample ,only gave me benadryl. Now,after I.v for 4 days,it cleated up- but a month later,as my period came,it got a lot worse in just a few days time,making me sleepless and irritable,constantly feeling creepy crawly, and insanely fed up! Are there any natural cures ,cuz I don't want to poison myself and son. My husband isn't affected,strangely. Please ,thankful for more detailed answers and/or suggestions. I don't wanna live this way. I'm getting extremely depressed on top of all,w bad moodswings- and it isn't PMS:( Thank you for any advice,God bless you all ..
