Still free of bites but I don't know if my wife will ever get over it. She is still using diatom powered on everything and washes bedding daily. We are both bite free but the damage has been unbelievable! I bet all in all it cost me $10,000 plus. And it may have cost my wife her sanity.

Langoliers, it's hard for her to let go.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
All the best to you and your wife.

Give her time to actually believe that you both are free and so is your house. We here can all understand how she feels. We will be praying for you and her. Thanks for sharing what helped you.

I've read all of your posts, ALL of them, just like I track ALL of the veterans here. You spent time talking about and theorizing about the long red scratches.
I'll post my response to "misery in au" on the borax thread.

thats odd- actually did have one scratch on stomach tonight- on it was a dead mite (the bird mites are larger and more visible than scabies)

Get yourself an eye loupe 20x and take a close look at that "mite". The fibers wind themselves into tight little balls. Then go find an entomology website or a medical website and post it here saying that the scratch is attributed to any species of mites. The people on the imidacloprid thread that all experienced the long red scratches ,none of them said they had bird mites.

You would think these people would know;

How strange that these people on the morgellons forum are all experiencing the long red scratches.

Send your samples here. I'd love to here the results, when you give us a report please include the lab sample number.

Instead of just reacting please don't rule it out , give it some thought.

P.S. If you go do the research and decide to accept it then I have found the most progressive treatment for it on the planet. Read my posts from 3 Dec froward on the Borax thread, also it has nothing to do with borax, read all the posts and all the links , your answer is there.

I can only imagine! I'm not 100% free and I feel like I could never be the same! How long have you been bite free? You had bird mites? Glad you and your wife are doing well. I hope you never get another bite.

How much magnification do you need to take these pics? Can you suggest brand/model for a hand held microscopic camera? It would be really helpful. I'm not sure what to get...

I got mine on eBay 500x SVP DMS 40
It works pretty good it has lights that light it up and a zoom button focus ring around lens. Eats up batteries pretty fast though. It uses a memory card.

Good luck.

all the discussions about permethrine and ivermectin being effective in killing scabies are blown out of proportions. i think that before using any of these products we need to prepare ourselves for possible side effects. i myself went ahead and blindly used both realizing after few month that scabies did not go anywhere/ here is a blog where people discuss natural ways of eliminating scabies - http://skinimprovements.com - now, looking back to my treatments i wish i had found the alternave anti scabies methods,

Can you identify what is in your 3rd photo. I have found this under a microscope too, but don't know what it is. Is it an undeveloped scabie? iIt seems to have a barb for a tail. I hope you are still active on this post. I'm looking on this post for answers & advice.

Absolutely! Thanks! I looked this up immediately after your reply...you are right on the mark. Now my problem, I was itching had some bumps come up with black specks on center, thought I had scabies. Got some permethrin 5% from doc, bought some tea tree oil 100%, my scalp & bod are still itchy. Wiped my body down with Tt oil & found the "specks" on the cotton ball. I placed it on a slide & find what you had in pic 3. Not what I expected!! Now I wonder can I treat as if it were scabies? My dog also has bald itchy spots on her "elbows". Wonder if it is the same & was she the carrier? Sorry so long I'm just really worried now. Thanks for your help :)

Yup you're getting them from the dog.

Diatom powder works on them. You need revolution for the dog.

Hi Langoliers, hows your wife doing? Did she feel crawling all over her body? Do you guys still have DE all over the house? You got tracks from what ever you were dealing with? I'm to the point I'm going to shave my hair off. Any help is apperciated
