...My ex and I were at the best hospitals in Bangkok and in the end were referred from the Infectious Disease department at Phaya Thai Hospital Nr. 1 to the head doctor's professor.... the worst case he had seen... daughter... finally transferred her to the tropical disease centre at the UK's leading unversity. Upon my return... biopsy...positive scabies mite... new HIV test (NEG), a prescription of Dermovate steriod cream and a return appointment in a month's time.
Meanwhile, my ex was already being given Stromectol... her scrapping turned up positive mite debris... they are still attempting to find a reason and treatment plan... I transferred from my GP up north to her GP in the south, which involved me having to move in with her... still not received a referral letter from the GP to her specialist at the tropical disease centre, but expect this by tomorrow when the next appointment there is...been treating myself with Ivermectin...caution to people: do not treat with Ivermectin and a topical at the same time. I think this is the reason that I now have an infestation in my sinuses, and I suspect, deep in my throat, because whenever I lay down now, a soft lump arrises from deep in my throat, then top part of my throat and ears start to tingle before bites start being felt on shoulders and arms. My body sores are healing, but now it is primarly new bites on shoulders, forearms and hands, which I sleep on. Anyone else can comment?... I am still hoping (praying now) that a doctor will take a heightened interest in us. I am not the type to self-medicate or try expermental treatments, but the doctors are leaving me, and many of you, in this terrible position.
I'll post more after tomorrows appointment with the specialist at the tropical disease centre.
1. Is the Dermovate working at all??? 2. Itchy Scratchy said and I so agree: "immune boosting strategies...
1) Multi-vitamins, several times per day (keep a running heavy stream in your system)
3) Cut down/eliminate sugar, pasta, potatoes, rice, wheat (bread), and corn based products.(Very, very tough to do, I know....).
4) Increase intake of fruits & vegetables
5) Eliminate intake of alcohol & caffeine
Additionally - shower often - I'm talking 3+ times/day. Mites feed on the dead skin cells, bacteria, fungal spores, and skin secretions. Showering elimates much of this, for a short time....it won't rid you of scabies, but it can't hurt to cut off their food supply as much as possible."
Do this stuff. I take GNC Multivitamin Ultra Mega Gold. One pill-great-easy. But forget the mass vitamin C. Jury is still out. Do an Atkins or Susan Summers type diet for the reasons Itchy stated. Also, Loose the weight. Now is as good a time as any. Your immune system will improve as you start moving better. Articulated at every joint is what you need to strive for. Also, my littleist sister said upon getting sinus surgery: every thing you can smell is actually a tiny bit of the real actual product touching your sinuses and I have to be so careful of smells after surgery to prevent infection." I never think of farts the same after hearing that. Ick! Someone's actual poopy dupe inside my nose! Abeit small, still ick! So yes, a microbe of scabies, you betcha I can see how it can get into your ear, nose and throat system. One time I said, "if you have a bronchial infection, just clean the shower with that bleach spray, know how it burns the inside of your nose and lungs? Well its burning them too!" I don't know why I said that, but it can't hurt to clean the shower after using it!:)
