UGH! The local paper hasn't responded to me so I just sent them this email:

Seriously no response?
Did anyone even bother do to a google news search on scabies when they got my email?
How about looking at http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies which is a forum where thousands of people are suffering and looking for help?
I know politics gets the most readers and hence the most ad revenue but come on! Public health is even MORE important!

Thanks for responding
I had already quit my job they didn't know thm:at and yes I agree whatever this is will be spread. I told them and I was seriously considering tracking down all my clients and letting them know. They got very concerned and asked me not to do that... At the time I just assumed they didn't want another case number..now Im not so sure..This has consumed me and now I believe that it isnt scabies in my case. Not sure what is biting me and laying eggs. I found some tiny insects in my clean bed that only I had slept in. No cat. Shes sick and scratching too. She has no marks or evidence of fleas. Ive tried advantage revolution and frontline. Currently she is on ivermectin the third week. No relief.
I was prepared, like you to stand up and alert my clients newspapers anyone who would listen. And I still am but in my case Im sure it isn't scabies. I have several specimens and tomorrow I will try to find out what they are. Looks like a tiny gnat. Some have wings some dont. Not sure what im dealing with or where to go for help at this point. Im taking horsepaste and it clears them pretty fast. but they start right back. I can't seem to kill them. Ive tried all the sprays. Thanks again and I hope you have luck with this awful misery. Scabies or whatever it is

Anonn,

Gnat like? If it wasn't for your mention of wings I'd say bedbugs since they hangout in/around beds. I wish you well in finding out what your pest is.

Josephine,

Sadly most doctors just have no friggen clue. Also, I'm starting to wonder if scabies has evolved to the point where they know how to hide their presence by excreting something that makes you not have the traditional visible signs.(My 'rash' is super faint and always has been after the first month of having scabies.)---Then again, it could be just be my body chemistry not having a huge histamine reaction... who knows.
