$60 for an hour of consultation. What a rip off!!!
$50 for going over that time.$150???

OMG, you guys deserve to be shot or hung up by your fingers on the cross.

and selling cedarcide on the side? IT DOES NOTHING TO KILL THESE MITES.

Another rip off site.

I HATE YOU.

All of the products listed on the stopskinmites website are a bunch snake oils and are overpriced. None of these things kill the mite. They can't sell ivermectin, permethrin, lindane because they are not licensed to sell the true meds to fight scabies.

Don't get wrapped up in these snake oil companies. overpriced consultations, oregano oils, essential oils, cedarcide, foggers, this is ALL BULLSH*t BECAUSE it doesn't cure you.

you need tried and true meds. Stay away from these websites. They will only drain your bank account, and now this is all this forum has become, a haven for snake oil sales people, pushing products that only prolong your infestation.

Hungry Ghosts is probably the owner of this website and posts under suspicious pretencious claims.

buyer beware!!!

With the Arbonne, are you applying it with a Salux washcloth or a rough nylon scrubby to dry skin and allowing it to dry completely before rinsing? The first few weeks I used it, I failed to do this, but once I did, it helped immensely. Felt SO much better. For hair, I added tea tree oil and peppermint oil to my shampoo right before applying it to my head, scrubbed really well and left on for at least five minutes... I know that works to kill the bugs because I combed through it after rinsing (while still in the shower) and combed out a humongoid springtail... It twitched a few times and died. Hooray!!:)
I see you are pushing ARBONNE here which is sold all over the net and on that stopskinmites website. What are the ingredients? I can never find the MSDS ingredients in these snake oil products. Why would this work? This entire thread is a sales pitch disguised as someone who is suffering from collembolan.

I don't present anything as scientific fact - I'm telling someone what has helped me. You saying that springtails don't infect humans doesn't mean that I haven't seen them come out of my skin. I have a microscope. I'm not the only one who has experienced this. Just because you haven't, doesn't make you right Fred.

You mean like the world expert on collembola? http://46.18.32.69/~doehetzelf /publicat/sidney.htm
There. If you love PubMed so much there's a few studies there as well.

I can tell everyone I have gone to every skin Dr I can find. I thought I had scabies, then mites, I started taking high doses of Garlic pills, i read they will help, it did, the biting & crawling skin got worse at first them these white teeny worms started appearing in my sores, in 3 days I had 3 spring tails crawl out of my skin right before my eyes, I saved them & researched to find out they are spring tails, the white things are the larva, the black specks are their feces's, I am also bathing in borax & peroxide in my bath water & applying tea tree oil. I am taking these bugs to our College to verify they are spring tails.

I was on this site one year ago. Thought I had collembola. Then thought it was bird mites. Took me four months of suffering to realize it was Morgellins. Trust me. This is what you have. The virus attracts the mites and springtails and other bugs. I had the black specks too. Itching. Bugs in my hair , nose, eyes and ears. Here's what you need to do. Spray house and clean with Kleen Green. Use coconut oil on body or neem lotion. It will stop the bugs from attacking you. Wash hair in neem shampoo then peppermint shampoo. Same with conditioner. Leave on five minutes. Treat hair every morning with Nizarol shampoo and salt with a bathing cap. Take bath in apple cider vinegar and salt. Sit at least 30 min. Then do. peroxide and salt the next time. Or try Japanese sea salts. Use a lice comb every morning. After you blow dry use a fork heated with a lighter and run threw hair with your head upside down. Sounds crazy but it gets the bugs out. Take GSE extract, olive leaf, Clove leaf, neem pills and oil of oregano pills. Switch up every week. Take a strong probiotic, milk thistle, lysene , multi vit etc. you have to get your immune system very strong to beat this. Eat a lot of green leaf veges Stay away from sugar, wheat, soy and dairy. Trust me. You will feel better in a few weeks. I buy all my products online. Amazon has them all. Also take Chlorella and colostrum ic And don't loose your faith. God will help you through this. He's helped me. God bless.

Hey everyone pay attention to these sulfur soap sales people they have really been attacking me on these threads. They are trying to discredit all things that they don't sell.
I Tried it all and now one year later i'm cured. And sulfur sales boy your products didn't help at all.
I beat them with a Doctor who gave me
1) Stromectol 5 5mg tablets once every seven days.
2) Lindane lotion 4 or 5 treatments
3) Diatom Earth lightly dusted on everything. And in bed with ya.
No only a real jerk would attack someone on these threads for sharing there battle with others in order to help just so they can make a buck on others pain and suffering.
Ok, how long did the dr. keep you on Ivermectin,(Stromectol)? How many weeks, etc. Who is your doctor or where can I find one who won't dismiss me as delusional? Would your doctor be willing to refer people to other doctors who will take them seriously if out of the area? I've been in the E.R. and hospital over 8 times with various life threatening symptoms. Heart almost stopping at night because of various localized areas of internal bleeding, throat having large openings into sinus cavities,(couldn't swallow food for a month), intestines falling due to liquid diet, vision and hearing disrupted due to movement through sinus areas being completely infested... and more! One dr. prescribed one 5 pill dose of Ivermectin,(which began to work) out of sympathy- thinking that it may cure the delusion, bugs were dripping off of me in the hospital and everyone who got within reaching distance of the bed began to itch their head- but I'M delusional. I brought in hair follicle samples, the bugs I puked up for 3 days after something shifted in my throat, tape samples, skin samples, only a small square was cut out of a bag of the puke on my last day there as they were desperately trying to get me out of the hospital although I could still barely walk and had just began to eat-(still getting food into my sinus's)... I had no one to be released to, so they PAYED for a cab to take me to the next town where my husband was working! I guess the springtails got to be too much for even them. Most of my family still believes I'm delusional because that's what the doctors said although the exterminator we hired took it very seriously when he found evidence of springtails and heard about my symptoms. I had to temporarily move out of state until my husband relocates because the demolition of the abandon house next door was re-infesting the house daily. He's living in the car because we had to leave sooner than we could acquire a new place in our price range. Now I've infested the home and potentially the people I love, because I had faith that the Ivermectin would work. Had not done enough research. I not only need to find assistance for myself, but now for potentially 7 to 15 people close to me, who I've witnessed scratching. Anyone out there who can help in the Napa, Ca. and/or Oklahoma city/Tulsa area would be greatly appreciated!!! The hospital and insurance that screwed me is Kaiser Permanente. Even the parasitologist refused to take a skin sample because of my record and previous bias. I have 2 tubes of Ivermectin for horses that I acquired from a farm supply store in case of emergency, but I would rather not chance screwing up the dosage. Ive seen 2 more doctors after my relocation who would not write a script. They're more concerned about their own liability, than a stranger off the street. I am taking D-E - and a number of herbs and remedies for internal parasites, I'm only eating food, seasonings and teas which are anti-parisitic, drinking loads of Kiefer Yogurt every day- Coconut oil- Miracle 11 enzyme soap.. but in an environment I can't control or keep clean.. or daily wash my sheets with borax- vinegar,.. etc. I'm extremely limited until my husband finds a new place. Help. http://www.headlice.org/news/2004/delusory.ht...

Apologies for the tone of my previous message. Must have needed to get that out. I didn't get into many of the other symptoms, but you guys seem to have covered most.. although I did have a bundle of them in my throat that got pissed,(because I was shoving turmeric and raw garlic down my throat)and started pouring out of my nose and throat. I puked for 3 days, finally forcing them down into my guts because I was tired of not being able to breathe well.. thinking that they wouldn't survive the trip. This seems to be what lead to the stomach/heart trouble and my inability to swallow. Also lead to the diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)- which is getting better. I can eat now.:)

List of meds that some have said work and have also been used in combination with each other.
Tetracycline
Diatomatious Earth
Ivermectin
Albenazal (I forgot.. I WAS also given this by an ER doc which helped a bit)

Blessings and best wishes to all!

Are you saying that they feed off the enzymes in your body?..Could you be more specific?

My daily regime:
supplements:
I've upped my dose of vit C gradually to 6000mg,
st. johns wart,
cinnamon,
tumeric,
calcium,
magnesium,
zinc,
blue green algae,
papaya enzyme,
grape seed complex,
was taking ecinacea but out now and will replace with something else.

Liquids:
oxygen drops in water,
green drinks,
carrot juice,
coconut oil-(on body as well, helps alot!).

Other:
tons of oregano,
pumpkin seeds,
only use stevia as sweetner,
kiefer and greek yogurt.

Also:
Miricle 11 soap is an enzyme based soap that seems to work on the skin head and hair immediately. It removed layers of old and infected skin in the first 3 days of use and unless re-infested by the environment or others, the relief lasts for hours, even without the coconut oil. I believe that the soap pulls them out like coconut oil. They also have a mineral/enzyme body treatment I just ordered, should be here tomorrow. It's used internally and externally, is said to repel bugs, keep skin healthy and not dry it out. People use it as a moisturizer oxygen/ph elevator, and allot of other strange uses.

You can also use the soap to wash clothes with and it seems to help. Haven't tried using just that- don't want to waste it on clothing- and I'm just hand washing one non porous set every night with dawn and a spot of Miracle 11 at the moment due to re-infestation from floor under dryer. Ah, my package just arrived early!!!!! I'm excited to try the new stuff. Thanks for the info, any more ideas or info will be greatly appreciated, I'm a sponge at the moment- no pun intended :-/
I'll try to check out your other posts soon.

Good health!

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed... ;
7: Pan ZX, Shi SD, Zhang F. New species of Homidia (Collembola,...(Nematoda: Spirurida) following albendazole and albendazole sulfoxide in vitro exposure.

Looking for actual medical info, this article seems to have magically vanished from the site?
the above is the google search title with enough info for someone with a medical degree to find the study.

Here is the url it lead to:
This url....

http://www.google.com/url...

.....redirected to this url:

I caught the first one before it redirected, stuck it in another tab and it gave me a "bad gateway" message. They either removed the article, or it's another figment of my imagination. Searched on the site with no results other than soil sample studies it seems.

DID FIND ONE PDF verifying collembola human infection here, but with little detail, and only breifly mentioned... but validated, none the less.

Yes they are in your enzymes. That is why they don't show up on blood tests. But you must get your immune system very strong to fight this. Take Primal Defense ultra probiotic. 3 every night. Plus Trace Minerals. 3 with dinner. Protect your liver dye to all the supplements and herbs you are taking. Take Milk Thistle twice a day with meals and Bioprotect twice a day for your liver. One st breakfast. Two at dinner.

Take two Multizyme with breakfast, lunch and dinner along with one Pepsin HCL for your enzymes. Take Dr Mercolla Chlorella to fight pathogens. Take five a day Split between meals. Take detox baths. ACV vinegar with salt. Peroxide with salt. Japaneses salts. Alternate between the three. I always add Neem oil to baths, body lotions, shampoos, conditioner , and styling creams. Works wonders.

I don't know. This all sounds so lovely, but, to be honest with you, someone who has scabies and has a very good immune system, does not need to take these supplements and probitics.

The scabies mite and eggs actually live in the skin and on the skin. You need tried and true scabicides to kill scabies, not milk thistle and probiotics. I understand that some people need immune boosters, but they do not cure SCABIES. Scabies do not live in enzymes; they actually live in the skin. So, again, why go off way off base with these statements, other than to make money off of products which you specifically name here.

To tell someone to use a certain brand of soap or a specific probiotic smells of an advertisement for a certain product.

We're discussing springtails/collembolla, not Scabies. Although some of the symptoms are the same and some people with springtails are misdiagnosed with scabies..(probably the reason this topic is in the scabies forum)...the external treatments for scabies- DO NOT WORK for this. She is replying to my question about being more specific about the enzymes, and not pushing any websites or just one specific product- so I doubt she's actually trying to cash in although I know plenty of people do push their own product here. I am suspicious of the chiropractor who said they "live" in the enzymes... because he/she is suggesting treating with enzymes. These things are both internal and external, unlike scabies- although some don't have internal symptoms. There is a couple who treated collembola with tetracyceline(sp) and sucked them out of the skin with brewers yeast after and while treating their home. Brewers yeast on the skin makes sense because they feed off of fungus and mold while living in the "wild" and they would probably be much more interested in yeast than the stuff housed in our bodies. I ate a sandwich last night and after eating half of it, my throat, hand which was holding the sandwich and the arm I got the bread out with, were burning and I got my typical "sunburn" I get, only when there is an area of infestation, or if someone has a fan on in one of the "bad rooms". For 5 hours, I ate anti-paracitic foods and liquids and did some diatomatious earth.

Before I realized they were airborne in a slight draft... and microscopic, I couldn't figure out why my arms and legs were weakening and loosing circulation, but now that my skin has become so sensitive due to past infestations, I literally get a sunburn indoors on exposed areas when they're around and NOW- I can feel where they are by the almost immediate burning sensation, and how they feel in my nose and mouth when I breathe. I've become the bug detector of the family. I just want to reiterate that I think this is one reason it's so difficult to rid cars and homes- they can stay in their tiniest incarnation and I've read in the entomology- that they can even regress to a smaller incarnation after molting, if the environment dictates. Unless people continue treating after they stop feeling them, they'll probably come back. After the research I've done, I think that keeping Diatomatious Earth as a constant treatment, home and body, is a good idea, even after they are believed to be gone.

Yes, they definitely eat fungus - not enzymes... Ignore Fred and VSS.

Hi Written - I have had a springtail infestation for nearly a year now due to a mold infestation in the apt. Until the environment is cleared, they will continue to bother... But I have found this in my research:

Linoleic acid - http://www.pherobase.com/database/genus/genus... (and maybe palmitic acid? Couldn't tell if this was an atractant)
Benzoic acid - http://www.pherobase.com/database/genus/genus...

http://www.pherobase.com/database/order/order... - what is attracting them to is pheromones (the internet of the insect world). We could get some pheromones that tell them to GO AWAY

1,3-dimethoxybenzene, 2,4-dimethoxyaniline, phenol, 2-aminophenol are alarm pheromones

These are available to buy from chemical companies - not sure if they will sell to us!

Changing the internal is a big partm, biut the environment also needs clearing. I iused the toxic insecticides from, domyownpestcontrol.com to great effect - but until the mold gets taken care of - they'll keep returning.

Are you in CA? If so can you PM me the name of the parasitologist from Kaiser? I am in the process of educating my doctors - and since I have one who witnessed one emerging from my skin I have a good case to make.

If you read the scabies forums, here and on earthclinic - you can tell who actually has collembola. The King Diet guy said that Morgellons, Collembola and Strongyloides have the same symptoms and are mistaken for each other. I would add scabies and Curvularia Lunata and other mold infections.

If they are in your gut I would suspect Strongyloides since collembola have to breathe air.

I do nasal irrigation to keep them out of my throat - I mix the NeilMed rinse with one from a company called Baraka which has cedar in it. The best bug samples I've gotten are from my nose because then you don't squash them in the collection process.

Moxidectin was used on a cat infested with them - that study is on PubMed. Also look at the study of the people infested with Thrips who were initially diagnosed with "Folie a deux"'. Delusional parasitosis, formation, dermatitis... those are all euphemisms for The Doctor Doesn't Know.

I'm surprised you are getting treatment from a chiropractor??? WTF???
When Hungry Ghosts says to IGNORE Fred and vss, that's a bit of a egotistical bitchy effing attitude, don't you think HG?? You beacchh.
Well, there you go, you are talking about diatameceous earth. ALL YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF DE SALESMEN, disguising as people suffering from collembola. Yeah, right. Have a great day. And you too, Hungry Ghosts. Have a wonderful evening. And go eff yourself.
Diatamaceous earth does absolutely nothing for you.

And you guys still don't even know what is actually infesting you.

You are a bunch of wacked out psychos trying to make few bucks off of poor people out there.

If I was a newbie, I'd skip ALL your sh*t, and move on to some thread that can actually HELP YOU.

Are you in CA? If so can you PM me the name of the parasitologist from Kaiser? I am in the process of educating my doctors - and since I have one who witnessed one emerging from my skin I have a good case to make.
If you read the scabies forums, here and on earthclinic - you can tell who actually has collembola. The King Diet guy said that Morgellons, Collembola and Strongyloides have the same symptoms and are mistaken for each other. I would add scabies and Curvularia Lunata and other mold infections.
If they are in your gut I would suspect Strongyloides since collembola have to breathe air.
I do nasal irrigation to keep them out of my throat - I mix the NeilMed rinse with one from a company called Baraka which has cedar in it. The best bug samples I've gotten are from my nose because then you don't squash them in the collection process.
Moxidectin was used on a cat infested with them - that study is on PubMed. Also look at the study of the people infested with Thrips who were initially diagnosed with "Folie a deux"'. Delusional parasitosis, formation, dermatitis... those are all euphemisms for The Doctor Doesn't Know.
Oh sure, hungry, we ALL collect bug samples from our nose hoping that we don't "squish" them in the process. WACKO...

I'm surprised you are getting treatment from a chiropractor??? WTF???
When Hungry Ghosts says to IGNORE Fred and vss, that's a bit of a egotistical bitchy effing attitude, don't you think HG?? You beacchh.
Well, there you go, you are talking about diatameceous earth. ALL YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF DE SALESMEN, disguising as people suffering from collembola. Yeah, right. Have a great day. And you too, Hungry Ghosts. Have a wonderful evening. And go eff yourself.
Diatamaceous earth does absolutely nothing for you.
And you guys still don't even know what is actually infesting you.
You are a bunch of wacked out psychos trying to make few bucks off of poor people out there.
If I was a newbie, I'd skip ALL your sh*t, and move on to some thread that can actually HELP YOU.
The typical pattern with VSS is that she drinks heavily on Saturdays so her posts become even more over the top, if that's possible.
