Yeah - I do all that bed/laundry stuff... I guess out go the cotton sheets! Someone on the birdmites forum said satin sheets. Sexy!<quoted text> I have gone to two doctors so far. The first one basically asked me if I knew about morgellons (I do not think we have morgellons btw when you can look at this link:http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=8f-FGaoxuwwXX) then he referred me to a psychiatrist. The second doctor told me I had my pores cloged since he did not know what to tell me. They are clueless. I have not seen that blog but I will take a look and see hopefully something else works there. The clothes are a huge issue. I had bagged them all up even though it helps it does not really make a huge difference because your skin keeps on refecting it. I definately had the same problem with you and the Jeans. They penetrate deep into them. I know it sucks because who doesnt love wearing jeans but it is worth tossing them out if nothing you tried works. You can actually live your day without feeling the crawling going up and down and all around your legs etc..its a freakish nightmare! For the sheets try white microfiber if you can and toss out all the others :(. At least once or twice a week soak them in clorox for an hour with any other white clothing you have and them launder them normally. Once done I suggest you bag the clean clothes seperately from the dirty ones and wipe down your bed with alochol before you put your sheets on them. Trust me..you will see a huge difference. If you feel anything on the pillow seal it tight with a bag and then put the clean white micro fiber sheets on them. I did try the cedarcide fogger from stopskinmites and it worked but I had to fog ALOT!! and everytime i felt something somewhere I fogged there to. I have not felt crawling anymore but mostly tingling, pinprick, and burning. I think I only have the fungus at this point but it is so hard to get rid of.
If you can try what I told you and let me know if it worked. We are here to help one another on this for sure.
You should try Whitfield's Ointment if you can't get a derm to prescribe econazole... it's Benzoic Acid which is what I've been researching, and it's an older anti-fungal.
I personally believe that Morgellons is actually a variety of diseases and infestations that all manifest the same. Although a lady on the bird mites forum said she got rid of the mites finally and they left her with Morgellons, which certainly can happen - but that means she can tell the difference in the itching/crawling/pin pricks/black specks/white specks/sores from bird mites and the same symptoms produced by morgellons. I do think that the lyme disease/morgellons attracts bugs - in the same way that the conspiracy youtube guy CollembolaChick posted about does - but LOTS of things attracts bugs. UK2 said his was entomoeba dispar. Another says candida, another says evironmental fungus/mold. The list goes on.
I've never had unhealing sores or fibers that didn't look like fungal hyphae under a mircoscope. And since collembola come in a variety of colors - red, blue, etc I don't go into the nano-bugs from space. Although they could be ;-)
