How much neem to how much alcohol?
Thanks
91 percent alcohol will work but it's too harsh for the skin. You want to keep your skin ph level good

Just use a good organic body lotion or a alo Vera lotion and put 2 drops of neem oil in each handful of cream. Put it on your skin when wet. Don't rub in Let the lotion dry on its own. It will stop the itches and bites and keep the bugs off you

Also buy the lint rollers. Use on all your clothes after you put them on. Will get off the bugs. I also use on my bed sheets every morning. Don't have any problems sleeping.

I then spray Kleen Green on my clothes after the lint brush. This will protect you from getting bit and infected

And keep up your faith. Jesus has helped me thru this. I'm 95 percent better.

I'm months bit free my wife is still freaked out and is not ready to stop fighting them yet. But we beat them with 4 main things other then normal bed linen and all cloths washed daily.
Ok here are the big 4 in order of importance.
1) diatom powered (good earth) on everything and in bed and in the hair.
2) linden lotions 3 to 4 full body ( in the nose and ears and linden shampoo )
3) Stromectol pills (4 or 5) pills every seven days.
4) brewer yeast
Good luck
How long did you take the stromectol pills

You people have scabies. After five months of this and third trip to vet and third trip to er. I finally got goof doctors that diagnosed us with scabies. Get zyrtek permethrin cream from USA. Take a good shower with aveeno itch free body wash cover yourself in permethrin cream and go to sleep after sitting up as long as you can. You have to move everything to the garage or bag it for four days . Scabies dies off the host in four day at 122 degrees f for ten minutes . A great pesticide in temprid sc. Call a good vet for ivermectin and lime sulfur dips. But most important go see a good doctor. After one day I already feel better after months of hell

Thes 'pinprick' dots you speak of, do they look sort of like red blood blisters under the skin?
Have you had them in your scalp? I can't get rid of them. I know that's what it is because I saw them under the microscope. It took me nine months to finally figure out what it was. And that was by accident.

One more thing... I posted this info here on the scabies forum because for the first two months, we thought we had scabies or some other sort of resistant sarcoptic mite. Lots of hard pin prick type feelings and crawling sensations... Then I bought an Omax microscope for $199 on amazon (excellent microscope, by the way... Don't waste your $79 on a crap toy microscope from Toys R Us... Tried that... Worthless).... That helped me figure out exactly what we were dealing with. So if you've been dealing with what you think is scabies for months or years, yet nothing works, buy a good microscope and figure out exactly what it is... Then go from there. Best wishes...

thank you so much for the helpful info, we have had this crazy horrible stuff and i appreciate everything you have shared, you have given me hope!!

AS others have said invermactin for scabies has worked and I put on topically also get cedar fogger and try that but make sure you don't have mold or water problem first found out I had crack in bathtub that probably started the insanity with some fungus that attracts bugs ...your not crazy and don't give up I recommend no sugar as that seems to attract them also to you...DE earth works but messy and cedar oil is expensive but has cleared my environment a lot am trying transport next always the best riverliverr

A friend of mine informed me they finally figured out after three years that she has springtails, so I started looking up info on her condition. In my reading of this thread, it seems that these little boogers can be picked up and carried from one environment to another. Is this the case? I was going to visit to help her clear out a storage room and closets, however, I am now hesitant to visit her at all until she is rid of them, which seems to take months if not years. I live with my cats in an apartment complex....Is this something I could possibly bring home to my babies and others in my building? Please Advise!

Shelly,
could you please help me to get in contact with the norwegian man you said can identify collembola?

I have been struggling for a few months now and have found out after searching for photos online that it most probably is springtails that is terrorizing me. Have wasted to mush energy and money on doctors that dont even want to look at it. It almost broke my spirit all this repeating humiliating experiences with "know-it-all-people" that only laughed at me when I was in pain. I desided to document by filming and taking photos, collecting what comes out of my skin and will buy a microscope to know for sure what I see is what I see.

I have tryed allot of things, where some helped and others didnt, and will share that here if its of interest of anyone to read. But I would like to get in contact with this person you mentioned that could identify this creature.

I know his work... that is why I consulted him. I know three other people had the same experience with him. one minute he says collembola infestation doesnt exist the next moment he was telling me to look at lyme disease. The point is he avoided connecting the dots for me and was evasive. Im just telling my own experience. The youtube video I posted has additional articles listed beneath it that are telling as to what this is. Why all of a sudden is this happening to people in the north east in the last year? As to the Paper from The national pediculosis association, one of the entymologists on there almost lost his job over it. He was actually combing out the hair of an acquaintance of mine and found multiple bugs in her hair. In a conversation with him, he wouldnt talk to me until I mentioned her name.
If you go back on this thread and look even this "world expert" had told one of the posters that collembola don't infect people and that it is porobably Lyme disease.

If you want to cure your lyme disease this works.

most people on the scabies forum actually have lyme disease, the skin symptoms can be very similar.

You may stick a bug from your filthy house under the microscope but that doesn't mean anything. Your derm saw one come out of you and hop away so that is in know way and identifies anything. You have not established anything but a bunch of nonsense.
The morgellons debris that you have coming out of you look just like collembola sometimes. BTDT.
Send some of the morgellons debris to an entomologist to get identified instead of some juice bar scientist.
the post's you made a few months ago conclusively showed your symptoms and evidence as , guess what, Morgellons disease.
I am a human and i am infested with collembola. After 2 years . I got a microscope. Springtails are very easy to identify At any stage of growth.

A hidden toxic mold condition in walls and hardwood floors, behind bathroom tiles and floors from a previous roof leAk. Landlord never correctly fixed roof and just covered damage with a quick paint job. so wasnt long after i moved in That the water started finding its way down into ceiling walls and floor.In a small apartment would take it toll on anyone's immune system.

Not sure ..... Why people continue to deny human springtail infestation.
And yes they do live and destroy everything INSIDE houses or apartments with fungus or bacteria.

In my case.... Toxic Mold
Wipes out immune system and gives collembolla something to feed on.
What's so hard to believe about that?

No one has the same problem that you came up with from those stupid drama websites you go to. Collembola don't infest people. I asked you several times to post some substantiated science saying they do and you posted a bunch of incoherent gibberish.
Just because your finding "collembola" in glue traps doesn't mean they infest people . You can find mice in glue traps too but they don't get inside you.
Any collembola that are where you live are feeding off the mold you described in your place. This has been what you've been posting for at least 3 months now. If you can't figure out how to abate some mold and treat the environment for collembola in 3 months or move out in 3 months that's pretty lame.
If you can't figure out how to do that call the county health board. Spraying white vinegar around kills mold and putting a moth ball every 3 feet and leaving for a day will kill the collembola. Allow for ventalation because the moth ball trick puts out some toxic vapor so you'll want to open a couple windows for a while to ventilate before you go back in and pick up the moth balls.
You may want to research the diseases that collembola pas to people when they incidentally bite them , they do not infest people. Wolbachia and Bartonella are common infections of colembolla.
Collembola do not infect people except on drama websites. The Neurological problems associated with the infections that an incidental collembola bite will pass to a person explain the nature of your posts.
Going to a Dermatologist for these types of problem is useless, you might as well go to a podiatrist.
Not sure spraying vinegar around house and scattering a few moth balls is the answer to toxic mold hidden in walls ceilings bathroom floors.

Sounds like you ve not much experience with mold or Anything.
You sound foolish and strange. Why are you even arguing ?
Open your eyes and your mind.
And learn
Before you open your moth.

Took me almost 2.5 years and I'm finally feeling almost normal. Yes! Lint rollers work. I use them prior going to sleep on my sheets. May I also recommend ironing all your clothes inside out and spraying 70% alcohol in a bag to place the clothes u will wear the following day. If you seal it real tight, with the smell they suffocate. Worked so well for Me I rarely n sometimes only slightly feel anything and it usually goes away quickly. Ive literally sweated outside with these clothes (i live
in miami) and had not felt a bite or itch. Amazing!!

Oh, forgot to mention, u need to seal these clothes in a bag with alcohol smell overnight. It will NOT work with all clothes, like cotton, it is too thick. If you constantly feel stuff with a specific outfit no matter what just trash it!! It will infect your other clothing n u will never get better. Only keep the clothes u feel are bug free!!! Any sofa or furniture with same situation trash as well. I had to get rid of so many things n I moved n I'm now doing better. This is your life and material things come and go. Jehovah God knows what we need..Matthew 6:33.
I also believe a good diet is required, although, I admitted I love coffee and wine n many of u with this condition know that's a BIG no no. I find, however, that if I reduce my intake I do much better. I don't have to eliminate. I've been drinking coffee in the morning n have had no negative affect. For example, no itchiness, bites, crawls...n the bumps I used to get are all gone. None have returned. However, if I drink coffee several times a day I do feel activity in n on my skin. Also, 2 days before my menstrual I feel an increase amount of activity... So I do also believe hormones also play a. Huge role here. But, I'm so much better then before, I smile, laugh, and I feel myself again. I also have friends over all the time (without them getting infected) Cuz it has been under controlled to the point where its not a threat to no one else. I only hope my collembola infested friends could get better soon n that one day we can all say we are 100%. Isaiah 33:24. That day will come.

Hi. After 3+ years battle with this *** and many mystakes i found best solution for remove parasites from skin. Its common lotion for warm muscles or massage. It must contain "heat" compounds that your skin give "in flame" effect after application. I dont know which compound from this lotions is effective (devils claw, camphor, caspaicin, cinnamon), but this lotion is very helpfull.
Cedar or teatree lotions are not effective as this one.
I has big relief with this cheap solution, my home is clean, but enviroment in work is still problem, probably you know :-( I hope that endurance is solution.
