Describe the "black spots" for me please!

Mitynutty, thank you for your sanity. I think you're right. These forums are reassuring in a way because they help you realise you're not alone, and you're not completely delusional, imagining all sorts of things. But they also freak me out and get me into this downward spiral of despair. I'd like to think that you're right, and some days I believe that an explanation like yours is possible. I'm a very rational person, so of course that's what I'd like to believe. But then other times when the detritus looks white and oval just like eggs, I start to doubt myself again. I'm a lot better than I was, and that's NOT through more chemicals. I stopped using them, heavily suspecting that they are part of the cause in some way. I also gave up sugar, and found an almost immediate calming of my symptoms. I already avoid wheat, and I'm now eating a lot of vegetables and not so much processed food. So I'm wondering if the symptoms are to do with yeast, as well as chemicals like Permethrin. I'm treating myself to the odd sauna too to counteract stress, am listening to calming music and having earlier nights. I might also consult a nutritionist, (if I can get enough money together), as I'm still not sure what is best for me to be eating, and feel very run-down. I'm still having stuff coming out of my skin, which I hate, but not nearly so bad. Can I ask you, as someone who's gone through all this, how long does it take for things to STOP coming out of your skin? Or will that just be sth that happens to me from now on?? Thanx again for speaking sensible words  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #19)

Sam, this is an old thread I know, but I'd love to know if you identified your arthropod, as I keep getting lots of the black spots you are describing. I'd assumed it was scabies, but maybe not. Perhaps that's why the Permethrin isn't working? I would love to know the answer if you're still around.  (Aug 24, 2012 | post #17)

Bleach baths help if not cure, Please read!

anp, did you really cure scabies with steroids? Are you sure that it was scabies? Maybe the Permethrin did work, but you had the post-scabies itch afterwards (which can feel like scabies), and the steroids then made that better. I wish it was simply a case of taking some steroids to get rid of these...  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #6)

the cure is so simple, I can't believe it......

Hi, I'm in the Uk where they don't sell Clorax bleach. Would any other kind of bleach do? How about Domestos? Or a store brand? Thanks.  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #1319)
