Reader Struggling with Parasites Should Seek Medical Advice from a Travel or Infectious Diseases Physician

A reader recently sent us a concerning message and some interesting photos. She explained that she has been struggling with some sort of parasitic infection for just over a year. She has made 3 trips to the doctor and received a prescription for anxiety medication and lice shampoo, but hasn’t gotten any real relief. During the past year she quickly dropped 40 lbs, which she believed happened at the start of the infection. She also took a pregnancy test that was positive, but miscarried a month later. She was feeling itchy at night and her symptoms pointed to pinworms, so she got the “banana flavored medication” for pinworms, but it didn’t help her at all. Now she believes the parasites have moved to her ears:

She can feel them moving around on her head and hiding behind her ears, eyelashes, and in her nose. While she can still feel movement on her entire body, the parasites on her face and head are the most uncomfortable and impossible to deal with.

UPDATE! All About Worms has partnered with HealthLabs so that

She thinks the parasites might be translucent because she can see something on herself, but only in the right light. She explained that she can feel the weight of whatever it is on her body, so she knows it exists. She hopes we are able to help.

    I also for months have had odd changes in my body, house and children. I have marks all over my skin, and if I shine a light on to my legs and such I can see the creature moving. I noticed at night they are very active when I lay in bed or if my skin gets too hot. I’ve lot so much weight, I’m fatigue all the time. I can see them moving in my bed and blankets.already went to the doctor 2 times to be told I’m fine and asked if I had a drug history?!! My children started getting the same marks or bites on them and got very ill. Also same symtoms. I am the worst of all at this point as my immune system is not the greatest and for weeks I have been down. I feel like I’m already past the parasite stage and into the disease stage. I’m desperate for help. There in my food. My floors. They burn as if fiber glass is in an open would. I’ve had very irrigular periods for a couple months now and also had a postive pregnancy test. Than negtive? What is this thing?

    I’ve battled this for 6 months. I think it’s a micro moth/fly that is breeding in sewage or in soil. I saw them once in my magnifying glass. Inside a little thread/dustball. They were maybe 5 coming out if it, white/yellowish with a brown head, similar to an indian meal moth but smaller. They were so tiny they can easily live on a human or in clothes where they spin cocoons i think.

    Clean your walls with TSP and spray everything in your house with enzyme based cleaners.
    Then order Ivermectin on Amazon (for horses/cattle) same ingredient as for humans but without prescription and for abt 10 dollars! Take it internally and use it externally by mixing it into a lotion. Scrape your body and face with a credit card or similar to remove the biofilm they produce. This is important!
    Also use hydrocortisone and sulphur cream on your face and scalp.

    I’m almost free of them now and my hair is coming back!
