Hi all. I had this horrible case of mites and I'm still not sure what it was but I think I've narrowed it down to fungus. They are gone now after I bought a dehumidifier, treated my hair for lice and cleaned with strong chemicals. My pets had them and thankfully after treatment they are gone. I used Revolution for the pets and had to use a larger dose on them - twice with two weeks between treatments.
I tried sulfur and all sorts of bug killers. Ugh. I've never felt more horrible than that and suffered a depression that I'm just getting through.
I feel for you all. The condition is awful enough, but the shame that comes with it is enough to make you give up the fight. Don't though. I've been able to be out in public again and not everyone has this or will give it to you. It's made me much more careful about whom I let in my home now. Also, I don't think they are gone but something about ME or the pets makes us no longer a good host. What changed? Besides the dog treatments and cleaning with chemicals - Nothing really changed much until I got the humidifier and used it a couple of weeks.... which might have also been time enough for dogs meds to kick in.One other thing is that I had quit smoking and then started up again.
FYI- I've met several nurses who have Morgellon's and one who admits it and says these can cause Lupus as she's got it. Take care of yourselves.
