Hi.... I've Never done a Post. I'm not much of a computer person - my profession did not call for it. However, Now I am..... I am not 100% sure When this problem exactly started, or how it came about. I can tell you that it is very subtle to the person who isn't a Breeding Ground to Whatever is On/ & In My Skin, in my Ears, up My Nose - my crotch area shows some signs of this Thing or Things, but thank God is not itchy Like my *Scalp*, or we would have some Serious problems....! I Am a Hyper-Clean person, but it has also gone you know where. Once again, not even close to how ITCHY & ALIVE my scalp is. And, my arms/legs & BACK (especially) will go through periods of 'Being Attached' - random spots where I feel like they take a chunk out of my skin, Especially when I am in the bathroom, before/during/ & after a shower (Maybe it's some kind of Life Cycle of the Bug/Parasite?), Also when I don't have long pants, & if I don't do the 'Peg Leg' @ the bottom of my jeans or pants (Fold over, & roll up only the minimum amount necessary - 1 1/2 - 2 Times, in order to make a seal - so all of the above cannot fly up, crawl up, or jump up my pant legs). And, I have to Tuck my Shirts into my Pants, because if my lower back is exposed it seems to be the spot that the Parasite/s prefer..... Oh yes, & my hands - front & back & partially up my arm - it feels like I have two casts on my hands/forearm - Soooo dry & stiff - almost blistered. In some areas - little cuts with dried blood.
*Treatments that I have tried: Before, when I thought that I just had Dry, Itchy Skin: 1. ) All kinds of Lotions/Creams/ & Ointments - & 1 Prescribed Solution (forget the name, but did nothing! ).... The Winner of That Category: the original NIVEA Creme (in a Blue Jar), I actually chose that creme because I was told, by my Homeopathic Doctor, that I needed to be religious about taking oral Magnesium *Glycinate* Supplements (As many as my stomach could tolerate), along with L-Theanine, & Tyrosine - Every Day - 2 X's per day.... ) Anyway, the Nivea Cream had (has) a good amount of Magnesium, which through a little accidental research, I learned that Topical Magnesium Applications (Oil, Baths, Lotions) are Better Absorbed by the Body, than taken orally. So, I spent 3 Hours in the Bathroom that evening: Shower, Shave, Exfoliate, and I used the entire container of the NIVEA CREAM - Everywhere on my Body & Face - During application, it sloffed off (spelling?) / Surfaced/& Extracted these tiny pimple like bumps that I had going up both sides of my torso - up to my shoulders - & slightly on my upper back. Once applied, my skin was SMILING (A Subtle type of Orgasmic) (Sorry if I offended anyone! ) - My skin felt pampered, for once, in a long time....! Anyway, I think I may have tried an Epsom Soak (Bath) - But could only lay there for 5-10 min! And, one of my fav's - another temporary fix - I Actually Shaved my ENTIRE BODY - Felt Great on my BACK! ..... Fast Forward to the past 3-4 Weeks or so, my scalp seemed to feel noticably itchier - My immune system was pretty low - 3 sinus infections in a row!! Treated, but never cured, with Antibiotics/ & a Steroid Pack - MethylPrednisolne. More and More Dust started appearing in my Home - I felt like I couldn't get anything 'Clean'. And, then one day, I cleaned out a brush of mine - used for Blowdrying my Hair, & there were a Ton of blackish FUZZBALLS - Freaked me Out! Also, I WAXED my Face, like I Always Do (Once, Every 4-7 weeks) - & after I pulled the wax off - I looked @ the strip of wax, to see how much hair came off, & I saw a noticable amount of black spots - IN The WAX! ?!! ? I'm going to continue in a little while, I HAVE TO RUN To WALMART to Purchase this BLUE OINTMENT (in a small box) - My SCALP is *A L I V E* & Even My HAIR (Which Feels like IT'S ATTACKING My EARS & FACE & NECK - I have hair that goes down my back - almost to my Bra Strap. But, it is UP off my neck& out of my Face - Except for a Few Fly Aways & Becoming More & More DISTRACTING!!!!!!!!!!!! I put a Paul Mitchell Essential Oil (Tea Tre & Lavendar) on my SCALP (massaged it in) & My SCALP is Having an AFTER-PARTY FIESTA, & 'THEY're Are Starting to RELOCATE (Or are WAKING UP Their 'NEIGHBORS' Down My UPPER BACK!!!!!! Alost UnBEARABLE!!!! This is the 2nd or 3rd Time that IT has Been THIS BAD (I think the Common Denominator is LATE Night - Early, EARLY A. M. , & TEA TREE Essential OIl - THEY LUV IT----NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! -------------------------I'll Be Back to FINISH My Description - Sorry So Lenghty & Boring - I'm EXHAUSTED!

An, my Apartment Backs Up Into an OverGROWN CREAK, where during the Summer - Covered the Water!
