You should go to an infectious disease specialist and get a proper diagnosis. Your kid will be proud of you for making the right decision down the road.Yes - please stick to giving information instead of fighting. It's not helping anyone.
I think I have springtails now too... first I thought it was scabies... but last week I bombed my car with 12% perm before a road trip and after 4 hours in the car my kid (who hasn't gotten them except one or two crawling/itching/biting moments) complained of pinpricks and crawling on his legs. Same thing on the way home. Thank God he's easily cured with herbal oils.
I had covered myself in perm for the drive up, taken iver (along with all the herbal supplements), and bombed the house before we left. Now I'm right back to square one. And I do get bites in the kitchen and bathroom on my legs.
Crap. I so can't move. And the poisons sound poisonous. And the DM everywhere sounds like an asthma attack. Ugh.
It's going on 5 months for me. So depressing.
If your skin scraping comes back negative then there are other tests Like the western blot that will reveal your condition.
Also taking organic clove capsules kills eggs and mites, it takes a couple weeks to build up in your skin, take 12-16 every day , 4 or 5 after meals. Take them for a month. If you still have "mites" after that then you should definitely go to an infectious disease specialist.
