How to find out what type of mite you have

Hi Ccc, Well, if they are truly hairs it could just be folliculitis, but when you say 'hairs coming out of skin', I'm thinking you mean that something that looks like hair but isn't. If that is true I'd start looking at morgellons as a possibility. Many people with morgellons have either white or colored fuzz fibers coming from their skin or darker grit like stuff. It is a bit frustrating because currently there is no agreement on the causative agent in morgellons. But with that said, there are things to do that have been very helpful to get rid of symptoms while research on the possible cause progresses. A few theories currently being researched are: - Hypertoxicity as a cause. Either environmental sources such as mercury or dental products which the body is burdened by, causing eruptions in the skin that attract infections like staph, body bugs and may result in various fungal infection (some have hyphae which are string like). - A type of bacterial infection (BDD) is being studied that causes the body to create keratin which comes through the skin. - A connection with Lyme disease or similar spirochete type infections including FL1953 which cause toxins in the body. Again what is thought to be happening with these illnesses are the hyphae coming through the skin. A couple search words to find info on this forum would be: Morgellons Lyme Poor Man's Protocol Terrain A few websites with helpful info are: http://morgellonsp gpr.wordpress.com http://morgellonsf ocusonhealth.com  (May 27, 2012 | post #33)

Either that or they are cured. Hopefully someone will report back to either this thread or one of the DMSO threads so there's some record of the success or failure of the treatment.  (May 22, 2012 | post #1764)

Scabies on face and scalp?

Get some ivermectin, a prescription from your doctor if you can. Or do a search on this forum for ivermectin to see sources for the vet grade products available.  (May 22, 2012 | post #494)

How long does Ivermectin take to work?

If your symptoms seem worse after applying a topical such as lindane there could be a few reasons. Most likely the treatment has been effective and is showing locations of burrows under the top skin layer that you didn't know were there. This happened with me. Another possibility is that the mites scattered from their 'happy homes' a bit during treatment and you need to treat a few times more and use a sulphur, msm soap, epsom baths or other topical that is somewhat repellent in between treatments. You are probably already doing this, so nuff said there. It is also possible that you have gotten a minor staph infection from the mites. You can ask your doctor to do a skin culture (they just swab the skin and let organisms grow for a few weeks to identify what is there, and do a susceptibility test for it to let you know the proper antibiotic to treat with). Many essential oils have been studied and proven effective against staph infections. (staph hasn't developed resistance to them as they have with many anti-biotics) So if you suspect that you can do more research online for that. It's really unlikely that the ivermectin would cause any worsening of symptoms.  (May 18, 2012 | post #56)

msm tablets mixed with lotion

Good thread! This lotion by Eidon has 20% msm. The large size shown here lasts a long time. http://www.swanson vitamins.com/EIM00 9/ItemDetail I've also used the Griffin Remedy Orange Blossom lotion with msm and aloe, which helps the essential oils (clove and lemongrass) penetrate really well too. I'm not certain what the percentage of msm is on this lotion but am checking. The aloe ingredient in both lotions also has a sulphur content and helps in getting to deep layers of the skin. What has worked for me is to spot treat with full strength EO and after a few seconds cover the entire area with the lotion, then apply lotion everywhere.  (May 18, 2012 | post #3)

Bruce, It's great that you don't have morgellons. For those that do, here is some recent research on the subject and some reference to lyme type infections: http://www.omicson line.org/2155-9554 /2155-9554-3-140.p hp  (May 16, 2012 | post #13)

MMS and DMSO

The only thing I've heard of that is new is Spinosad. But the oral is only used for dogs do far. Topical spinosad lotion is now FDA approved for head lice.  (May 15, 2012 | post #7)

Patty, P. S.

Hi Bill, You were the first person here to answer my post. That was when I was asking things like, 'do I need to use special soap between perm treatments?' -lol. I couldn't imagine how hard this would be for me to get rid of! But I hope i've now figured out an underlying cause that will make it possible. In the meantime through this forum I've found out ways to knock them back and have an almost normal existence. I also like the coconut oil, but haven't used it as much in the environment, although a dust mite spray that I used for bed pillows was was made of coconut surfactants...it did work. Will look up the name, but yours sounds cheaper. Wishing you well, -armed  (May 14, 2012 | post #1433)

My Ivermectin Treatment Story

Hi inUK2, Glad to hear that you have such good care available there. I hope you get relief soon and as you go through their protocol and see success you can let up on some of the topicals you have brought with you. Good luck!  (May 10, 2012 | post #178)

2 yrs later its not scabies its lyme disease

Immediate dosing of heavy antibiotics works if you discover the lyme disease or coinfections very early, say within a month. For those that have lyme or coinfections that have gone untreated for a while, the current treatment recommended by LLMDs (lyme literate doctors) is 'pulsed" treatments of various antibiotics sometimes over several months. The reason for this is that the longer the spirochete diseases are in your body they can form protective biofilm communities and more then one type of treatment is required to isolate and kill the different parts of it. Doxycycline can be used as part of this treatment. In an of itself it is not a bad medicine for this...it is a matter of how it is used.  (May 10, 2012 | post #6)

2 yrs later its not scabies its lyme disease

Hi Persistance, Many people on the birdmitesorg yahoo group have found that they have either Lyme disease or other coinfections, and when they treat for those they are no longer bitten by birdmites or other environmental mites. Because of this I was tested for Lyme/coinfections but came up negative. There is another pathogen that has been discovered and recently many people in the Morgellons community have been tested positively for it. This protozoa FL1953, now known as Protomyxoa Rheumatica causes problems in the detox pathways and a susceptibility to infection by environmental fungi and mite/collembolla activity. It is common among people that have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and many autoimmune disorders. The lab that tests for it is Fry Labs in Scottsdale Arizona. They will work with doctors in the US and abroad. I've recently tested positive for this and have started treatment. BTW, I started my 'mitemare' in June of '09. Here is a link that has more info on it (there is a link within this article to an interview that is also informative -wade through the first 8 minutes, then it gets interesting) http://betterhealt hguy.com/joomla/bl og/243-dr-stephen- fry-on-fl1953 It is best to start out with a doctor that is at least cognizant of Lyme...hope yours is, and that you get some answers from them.  (May 9, 2012 | post #2)

I don't mean to cause an argument of any kind. When I was accused of being non-truthful it did hurt my feelings. But to put it in perspective it was at a time when there was a bad troll problem on the forum and I can understand some of the confusion caused by that.  (May 9, 2012 | post #1699)

I was only talking about the DMSO treatment issue. I get your point about the rest....I remember being accused of the same...no wait, it was by you! -lol.  (May 9, 2012 | post #1697)
