I've been having a lot of luck recently w/raw pineapple. I've been eating lots of it...it's great to be able to eat sweets again...I guess the bromelain eats worms...when I rub it on my face it kills the little black demodex like things (lots of things do kill them, it's killing all of them that's difficult)... I've stuck with the diet, meat, eggs, veggies and not much else... Have been taking garlic, a black walnut/wormwood/clove combo and a good antioxidant complex. I expecially take the blk walnut/wrmwd/clove at bedtime and then I apply a skin tonic which I make out of 1 oz. tea tree oil w/2 capfulls of 91% alcohol and 1 capfull of hydrogen peroxide w/25 drops oregano oil, 15 drops grapefruit seed extract a little olive oil and a drop of dishwash soap to make it all blend together well and put it all over my body at bedtime (I mean all over...except head) and then I wrap Glad Wrap all over my body to keep it in place til morning ... and I've noticed a real loss of activity with every day... And I can tell you this thing got real scarey w/me... these horrid worms can literally punch or dig into your muscles and likely organs and tissue so are potentially dangerous I'm sure. No doctor has helped me one bit. I have a hard time believing they are nanos or genetically modified things...but I have to say they are weird and when I go after one in my upper body sometimes one in lower body reacts so maybe they are somehow connected. But the black walnut definately is a key component and TTO is effective...I think they have to be fought exteriorially as well as interiorially at the same time or they just move from one area to another with ease. You can also take Silica & Nat phos homeopathics, they help too and Bryonia is good if you have cysts.Sulphur homeo would help too..it can open cysts so they can't hide from your attack on them. I take ionic colloidal silver too (very safe in this form) just to avoid infections or viral/bacterial troubles from all this nonsense. Cats Claw (TOA free) is very good too for most things. They do get in your eyes and Walmart sells homeopathic eye drops too or saline eye solutions help, I mix a small amount of colloidal silver with it. If this gets to you mentally, take homeopathic kali phos or ignatia or a general homeo nerve remedy. The TTO wrap lets you sleep through the night. I don't have any sores. Saltwater baths are good too...just plain salt or Epsom.

I am so glad to see your post. I totally agree about the worms, I can feel them under my scalp at night when I use either olive oil or mayo... I had one in my eye muscle but was lucky enough to get Ivermectin( if you want to call it lucky) Sometime during the night it came out and I found it on my nightclothes.. Ugh! Your so right about the doctors, my regular one almost ran out of the room... I have been too 2 dermatologist, my optometrist numerous times, 2 internists, and 2 other physicians. Not one had done a skin scrapeing or taken a eyelash or a strand of my hair, and I had asked for it.. I was lucky enough to find one arachnid mite on my face and the eye doc. Thought he might have seen a couple of egg sacks on my eye lashes. I am learning that this is internal and external. I might try grinding some cloves( a tsp) and eating that once a day. I saw it on you tube, how to fight intestinal parasites. Stay strong! I am so glad for this website!

Maybe you could tie up the cloves in a cheesecloth and put it in a cup of tea. Not sure if I would ingest them, but I put cloves in apple cider along with nutmeg and cinnamon stick.

Ok folks,

My dogs got the Cheyletiella mite and subsequently gave it to me. I will go over what has worked so far, and some extrapalations of some remedies here and how they are working.

1. Window Cleaner with Ammonia ( almost any blue window cleaner), this stuff really works, I've used Raid, tick sprays, foggers, everything...this stuff is the best and it's not even close. Buy yourself a $20 sprayer from Lowe's and get a couple large $7 jugs of Windex, spray down your carpet and the walls, the couches under cushions, everything, and especially your bed and pillows. Keep a couple bottles of spray to use afterwards on couches and such on a daily basis. Spray carpet occassionaly with a borax/ epsomj salts solution as well, just like the dip recipe, minus hydrogen peroxide.

2. Wash dogs bedding daily, use dawn dish soap for detergent, 1 cup of borax per load, and bleach heavily. With all loads use hot water, and let sit for 30 minutes after it fills and mixes well, this is crucial, hot water and chemicals alone will not get everything in the fabric, the little guys have to stew for a while to get everything.

3. Your own clothes, huge pain in the butt. This, other than the carpets will be your main reinfestation possibility. Once again, hot water, 1 cup borax per load, dawn dishsoap, bleach if applicable. Important!- buy a bunch of hangers and hang everything, even socks or sheets. If you put in drawers when the infestation is still current, you wont get rid of them, hang everything, and leaving your clothes in piles is the worst, both clean or dirty, wash dirty clothes quickly and hang the clean ones.

4. Your poor pup- experimenting on a dip right now, will see how it goes. 1 part hydrogen peroxide, 2 parts epsom salts water(1=1 solution (ie. 1 cup epsom salts, 1 cup water, ect.), 1 cup borax per 64 oz. Going to add Tea tree oil to next batch as well, will see how it goes. Or optionally, can use a tea tree condtioner before the dip, Paul Mitchell has one with strong tea tree content and peppermint content, both of which critters really dislike. Spray with your espsom salt solution on body every day or 2 as well. Bag balm on belly is nice if their skin is getting irritated.

Yourself- Ok buy Cetafil, this is what you will bathe with, rub yourself down, let stand 10min, rinse off, use tea tree conditioner on skin if you want, rinse again. Have a small spray bottle with 1-1 epsom salts/water solution, and spray body with it liberally. If you are going in public, avoid face and neck or anyplace showing, as the salt will leave a white dust all over your skin when it dries. Make sure to shower every night before bed, and spray heavily everywhere...I mean everywhere. If you have a tub, use epsom salt(a bunch in n tub with borax), I don't have one, wish I did. If your scalp needs extra attention, use petroleum jelly on your scalp or mineral oil. I have gone so far to cover my entire body in it, I don't recommend it for long periods though. A good one is a hair conditioner you can find in Walmart, called Blue Magic, its petroleum jelly and coconut oil, both of which suffocates the bugs

5. Your car- Same as #1, clean and spray heavily with windex, keep spray bottle in there to douse every couple days.

6. One thing will not beat this- Your job is to make yourself and your pups as univiting as humanly possible to these things, use everything you can in conjuction, I know the things listed above work, but it's going to be a process, and not a quick fix.

7. Buy a push sweeper, dont use vaccum unless its a bag HEPA vaccuum, even the try to use push sweeper. The air and critters hiding in your vaccuum go everywhere when its turned on, making your cleaning a misery to yourself by respreading them everywhere.

This has made wonderful progress from when I first realised what was going on, and I'll post later to show any progress or failures, good luck folks.

I've just moved into an infested home and didn't know what was going on until, by the process of elimination, I was able to determine that the house is full of bird mites. I have read all the suggestion but so far nothing has worked for me. I had to get up at 10 p.m. last night, throw bed linens in the wash, vacuum bed and room, then spray all that. I let the linens dry on the highest dryer setting for an hour, then made the bed, spraying each layer. I finally fell back into bed and here they came. I was so tired that I fell asleep anyway and awoke with my nose and ears full of mites. The corners of my eyes and mouth were also affected. I feel crawling all over my head and body constantly and think I may be going insane. I can't go anywhere and won't let anyone come here. My pets have to be shampooed daily, so their lives are miserable as well. I just sprinkled borax all over the house, bought some listerine for my shower later. I've been using a home made spray with aromatic oils and alcohol. The pest control sprays I've bought were useless and simply served to irritate me and the pets. This is an awful experience and one I'd never heard about until now. All comments and suggestions are welcome.

We tried everything. Only things that are working: oil soap. Wash everyhting with diluted murphy's. Wood, cloth, vinyl, leather, carpet, body, hair... We have spray bottles in EACH room with diluted murphys (per instructions on their bottle). We spray each time we feel a crawl or bite. It suffocates the mites. We wash hair & body with shampoo, oil soap & water mixture (mostly water). Use nylon body puff. All towels, clothes etc get washed immediately or bagged up tight. After shower rub down with baby oil & tea tree oil. Once a day use clove oil & massage all over including spine area. Clove oil kills mites within an hour. Drink nutmeg, clove & echinacea tea. Steam your carpet & upholstry with a shark or other garment steamer approved for bed bugs. I spray the diluted murphy's in sections just before steaming slow. Vaccuum each day especially before steaming. Vacuuming hatches the eggs. Treat vehicles same. Hope it helps.

Warning

I do not recommend the mustard powder treatment. I diluted the mustard powder in water until the mixture was 1/4 mustard powder and 3/4 water and applied it to my cheeks and around my hair line to get rid of the mites. It felt warm. After about a few seconds the area felt very hot so I washed the mixture off and my skin was brightest red. The mixture had burnt my skin despite the very low amount of mustard to water. I now look pale with but too ridiculously red cheeks which I pray will calm down as I have a flight to catch in 2 days and hate to wear make up on a long flight so instead I may look like an idiot unless the redness goes away.

I don't think this solution will work on caucasian or sensitive skin without burning it, if you dilute any more then the mixture is not effective. Once my skin is healed I will try Ted's borax and hydrogen peroxide method which seems a lot less harmful.

I have to (respectfully) disagree about mustard powder being unsuitable to Caucasian skin. I'm white, of European descent, so my skin is rather olive-toned but definitely I am white. I use mustard powder in face wash, body wash, shampoo, and lotion that I made for myself. I dilute it as follows, though this is approximate:

Face soap: 1 tablespoon of mustard powder, dilute powder well in 1 tablespoon of hot water, then add several tablespoons of a plain, unscented liquid face soap. (for making this, I prefer the soap that's more like a gel or liquid soap rather than the really watery soaps that come out of the bottle as a pre-lathered foam).

To make shampoo, body wash, or lotion, I do the same.

I feel a bit of heat on applying, and as I lather it in, the heat abates. I leave it on for a few minutes.

My skin is now very soft & is soothed from the demodex mites. My hair is softer and fuller and lovelier than before. My shoulders, neck, chest and back are now clear of the mild acne that kept coming back every time I wore tops that exposed my shoulders or back or chest to my long hair. I feel cleaner. I absolutely love mustard powder, it's my newest discovery... I jokingly call this my "Marvellous Mustard Mask" or my "Magical Mustard Mix" and it makes me very happy! I had to play with the ingredients a bit to get it right, the trick is to be sure not to burn yourself. But make no mistake, mustard is powerful and will whip those stupid mites into shape! You don't have to fear the mighty mites that make you miserable... I don't anymore because I know they're very vulnerable to MUSTARD powder (:

I tried Borax mule stuff, but I wasn't very into that stuff, didn't find it as effective, and found it a big hassle. I used to use tea tree oil, and would still use it 50% diluted in oil around the eyes to kill ocular demodex (causing ocular rosacea - meaning messed up lashes and chronically red or bloodshot eyes caused by demodex in the eye area), but for my skin, it stinks. I don't like the smell, and mustard seems to be more powerful and do the trick best. My skin and hair are benefitting from it, and I no longer feel contaminated. I don't care if there are a few on me, everyone has SOME of them. But I like knowing they can't thrive, there are few. I also do a fun trick, I'm an early bird, so often wake before sunrise. In the dark, I sometimes wash my face in my "marvelous mustard" soap mix. Why? because some mites only come out at night, to mate (YUK! ) and flee in the light of day. No problem, I just kill 'em while they're out on their little dating scene on my face! As I do, I think... "See ya, suckers! "

Maybe some people are too sensitive for it, others must just dilute it enough.

I have been suffering with an infestation for 7 months now. I've tried so many things and spent so much money and nothing seemed to make a difference. That was, until I was directed to this site and Toni's post. I was actually on the right track and didn't know it. I had been doing a mustard bath product every night for about 2 months. I would watch the bugs rise to the top of the water in the bath and was sure it would make them go away. The problem was, they were still laying eggs and hatching during the day before I did the mustard bath again. Now, since adding the regimen of the mustard powder in my shampoo, body wash and adding it to DMSO, something Ted had mentioned on the site, I am seeing a measured improvement. I am on day 8 and hope to beat Toni's 6-week time getting rid of them. The obstacles that remain are treating my ears, eyes and finding a lotion that can keep the mustard powder moist throughout the day. I'm having to retreat 2-3 times a day at work.

You mentioned mites in your eyes and ears. I used a Listerine mouthwash in my ears. I put some in and put tissue in to keep it in. After about 3 days, I don't notice them anymore. You may have an overabundance of demonex mites in your hair folicles. I used bleach (different strengths), vaseline, sulfur cream and medicated lotion to decrease them. After I do a treatment, I put aloe vera on the cleaned face and leave it on. Also, sulfur soap will help decrease the number of mites. There is no cure for them yet, so all we can do is try to control them. One site mentioned putting pyrethrin cream on the face 1x per week, but they are deep in the pores and I'm not sure the cream would penetrate deeply enough.

I got Bird mites from my son's parakeet. The bird also gave them to my cats who gave them to me. I washed my cats first in blue Dawn dish soap then in Neem Pet Shampoo. The next day their fur was already growing back.

Doctor's thought I was crazy and they wouldn't help me so I used the pet shampoo on myself because I saw that it was organic with all natural ingredients I figured what could it hurt. It helped me too. Now I found out that there is also a internal neem leaf product that can help rid you from the inside out of these pests. I can't wait to try it. I think that Neem is going to be my new best friend I hope this will help some of you that desperately need it. Tami

Cure for mites:

After eight long months of going to doctors and prescriptions that didn't help me, I finally found a doctor who knew what to do for me. I take Neem Leaf along with N-Acetyl Cysteine twice a day. Both are to boost the immune system. I cannot tell you how happy I was to finally have relief, and it happened overnight! I tried everything in my bath water, cleaned constantly, and wore myself out both physically and mentally. These two are the natural wonderdrugs for sure. So, do not throw out your mattresses and don't waste your time in the tub with god knows what as I did. I would say good luck, but you wont need it, as this absolutely worked overnight.

I do continue to take them until my doc says otherwise. They can be found in the Sprouts grocery store chain or a health food store.

About olive oil to cure mites. YES!!! My 12 dogs were gifted with mites by the neighbour's woof. I also got it.

It was torture. For 4 months not one of us slept as we all scratched all night. After trying every natural remedy and ultimately resorting to toxic stuff from the chemist, all without result, I was absolutely desperate and saw no way out.

Then on Earthclinic I read about oil and tried and we were all cured overnight. I assume it smothers the mites but does not kill the eggs as two weeks later it flared a little. So I "soaked" them and myself all in oil again and now 2 months later it is a forgotten episode.

Also handy to tell is that olive oil has also saved many of my rescue puppies who came down with Parvo virus. I squirt one syringe of high strength dissolved vitamins into their mouth and follow 30 minutes later with a syringe of olive oil. About 2 tablespoons. And you will be shocked to see them vomit and poo tons of worms too, shortly afterwards. This knowledge is the reward of a long lifetime of loving and observing dogs.

Olive contains some potent bug killer compoundss. Olive Leaf Extract is sold as a natural antibiotic. Adding a pinch of the leaf should greatly increase the power of the oil, but looks like you got some high quality oil to begin with.

I know EXACTLY how to cure demodicidosis (demodex mites) especially on face. They eat away at your eyelashes. It's horrible. All you need is one thing..... A bottle of oil of orgegano. Clean your face at night before bedtime and rub ooo into your skin. It hurts and stings. Do it every night until your face starts peeling. You will have relief within a few days because you've poisoned the mites and they die. This is the best.... I nearly went crazy from these mites and didn't listen to doctors. OOO is the greatest.

After dealing with bird mites for 3 years, trying almost every solution listed on various internet sites, I've finally found relief by using a solution called "DeFlea Shampoo Concentrate".

Preventing Reinfestation of Mites  

Posted by Sharon (Tampa) on 05/29/2014

l recently had to visit my daughter to help her move, who has these mites and is in denial. It took me five years to learn enough off EC to rid myself and my dogs of these horrible things. Knowing l was going to get a snoot-full of mites off her car, bed and furniture, and having limited suitcase space, l packed MMS flakes plus citric acid activator for a ten-day stay (Note: it is possible to be covered with them with few symptoms, when you have a healthy immune system.) l have discovered that larger amounts than specified will work in the bath with regular tap water, BUT, the mix produces a healing gas that displaces your oxygen, and you MUST use a fan to circulate the oxygen you are breathing while you bathe, or you will start coughing uncomfortably. If you cough even once, immediately increase the air circulation. l use a box fan on high. l also use 3 tablespoons mms flake with 15 tablespoons citric acid to activate it, don't wait, get in the tub, immerse yourself head to toe for at least 7 minutes, scrub everywhere lightly-no soap or other items which will deactivate the solution- until after the 7 min soak, shampoo and cream rinse after the 7-min soak. When l got home, l experienced none of the usual problems of re-infestation, except for what l got in her car on the way to the train. If 3 tablespoons seems to make you cough, use 2 tablespoons with 10 tablespoons citric acid. This is a 5-1 ratio. Here is a reliable web-site with more info on MMS - g2cforum.org ( explore this site with tabs at the top, the forum is full of personal experience info.) You can purchase the flake (sodium chlorite- watch this spelling!! - read carefully what you are buying!! ) on ebay by the pound. Some feed stores carry the citric acid in bulk for cheap. Yes you can bathe your dogs in it, be aware that white dogs fur will turn pink, as it leaches the metals out of their body into the bath. rinsing with weak baking soda and water will restore the white.

Hi Sharon: Could you tell me more about how you got rid of mites using MMS. I bathe in 90drops per night and even spray my body with the skin protocol amount and I have not been able to eradicate them. It seems like this much larger amount you used has worked for you. How often did you bathe in this amount to kill them?

Also did you take protocol 1000 during this time. Also is your daughter having success getting rid of them? Thank you

Having fought a 10 year battle with these mites before eradicating them, and thousands of $$ l would like to remind newcomers that these mites get on everything in your home. They make new adults every 7 days. In 6 months, you can have a million, and a week after that you will have 2 million. Your ceilings, your walls, your upholstered furniture, your car seats and any fabric coverings, light fixtures, computers, electronic devices, dog or cat beds, the underside of tables and chairs, curtains, books, any cracks and seams in wallpaper, mattresses and pillows, Wow. Almost impossible to see with the naked eye, some species can live up to 9 months without feeding. You must spray these areas, and cover your seating or sleeping areas entirely encased in plastic that has all seams, including zippers duct-taped. Check every 3 days for holes and duct tape those. Preventing re-infestation is as important as treating yourself. You can bathe and treat yourself, but going back to sit on that untreated couch or chair or car or porch or yard will re-infest you, that is why some things seem not to work, it is working, but you are going where there are still mites living to get on you. Read all the letters to the end of the mite site and you will get valuable information to help your fight. It is worth the time, as further down you will get info that you may like better than what you have read before. l rid myself of mites using what l read here and Ted's info (thank you so much, Ted and EC) and using kerosene and taking DE powder internally. Also used a pest company twice to use miticide everywhere. Now if someone will show me how to convince my family members that they have mites l will be eternally grateful. Cheers.

I fought these things off and on for years. My dog and some of my friends dogs have also had to fight this off. I was putting Vanguard (with mite control) flea control drops on my dog and thought... why not... and put just a couple of drops on my arm... in 2 days I was itch free and stayed that way for quite a while. They came back, I treated again. I don't have any idea the long term complications of my actions... but that was first back in 2011 and pretty much they were gone until I recently moved and got old bed clothing out of storage and now... we're back to fighting them again! But one thing I do like about using the frontline... every time they bite me I'm poisoning them. After a while it would seem that if they all take a bit, they'll all die.

I have been dealing with bird mites for three years, after innocently bringing an abandoned bird nest into my home as a natural decoration. Within a month I was bitten all over, then swarmed with tiny bugs I could not see. I left my house and rented a place near my job. My car and office were infested. Finally figureed out what was happening via birdmites.org. I used bug bombs, RID, etc. To no avail. Used natural remedies like neem, tea tree, cedar oil, DM, you name it. Nothing worked against these monsters, which I could feel all over, esp. In my nose, ears, eyes, crotch. Then they burrowed into my skin leaving lesions all over me. The scariest part was realizing they were in ME, not just the house, car, etc. I have been to 8 doctors who treat me like I am insane and diagnose Morgellons. Ozone, H2O2 baths help a lot, and last year I discovered that hot saunas helped beat them back, so I take a sauna 2-3x week. Still felt like I was just managing them, not killing them off.

I write this today to say that I have found that quassia wood is working to kill them off. Soak the bark chips in water and drink it and apply it all over. I have been doing this for 4 days and the results are amazing. I will post back as this treatment progresses.

I picked up a skin mite infestation while a tourist in the Costa Rica rain forest five years ago. I have tried ivermectin oral and topical including eprinex, permethrin 5% cream and 45% permethrin for extra large dogs, lindane, malathion bug spray mixed with rubbing alcohol and citra-solv, bleach baths, epsom salt baths, borax oral drink, borax topical, essential oils, neem, ammonia, sulfur, etc.

By alternating I can sometimes knock them back but nothing cures. I have seen two dozen doctors and specialists, flown all over the United States seeking expert help and while I have the skin scrape results to prove I am not delusional, the doctors are clueless about how to help me.

Can you give me a update on your experience with 'Quassia Wood Chips' oral and topical??

Thank you, Jan

It has now been about 2 months using the quassia wood decoction as a body wash and drink. It has really helped heal and eliminate the sores. I continue to use the wash, mixed with witch hazel, all over, and drink it. I have also discovered that the "bug patch" really helps. It is a vitamin B1 patch sold for "no-see-ums", mosquitos, etc. I have three on at a time and it is helping a lot. Seems that the B1 (thiamine) goes right to blood stream and changes my smell--they hate it. Helps keep them out of my mouth and nose as they avoid the smell of expiration. I am still struggling with the mites, wonder if this will ever be completely over, but know that slowly it is getting better.

I have this infestation/infection and it is the "superbug" that Morgellons sufferers refer to. My variation of Morgellons is with superbugs infecting my entire environment, especially clothing and paper material. Its a tiny white superbug that flies extremely fast, mostly to get to my scalp/head. Their existence is manifested by white/black/brown specks and tiny white/black fiber/threadlike material. After dealing with this for 3 years, I believe that I'm more than halfway to being free from this. The challenge lies in having enough money to leave EVERYTHING behind AND to rid most of them from my body. My goal is a clean environment and clothes that is not infested and not having them in/on my body which otherwise would reinfest clothes and my home environment rather quickly.

I think that this superbug is the vector for the organisms/particles that comes out of lesions when essential oils/solutions are applied. For me, it came first, and then ultimately I developed lesions, myiasis in the fingers' nail area, and of course the infestation of my environment. I'll share some insight from my years of observation of this plight and could help others to live again.

My infection began when my neighbor's cat ran into my apartment unnoticed at night as I entered. By the time that I found him, it was curled up and sleeping on my bed. Shortly thereafter, I heard "popping" sounds of something in my ear when going sleep laying on my side with my ear against the pillow. I thought they were harmless earmites of some kind and used over the counter lice permethrin sprays on my bedding. It didn't go away and due to a busy lifestyle, I didn't try to eradicate it, living with it and only dealing with it when I go to bed. Looking back, I saw a lot of people scratching in close proximity. But like everyone, didn't realize that I'm the cause at first; one has to be very observant and conscious to recognize it. Then 6 years later, I got a cat, and made the mistake of letting it go outside and utimately bringing the Morgellon's superbug. I recalled that I felt a "fuzz" when petting her after that day. My cat also brought back a flea infestation and I believe that a flea bite infected me with the Morgellon's/superbug. I also had a couple of mice at the time and this is most likely a part of this developing problem; possibly with mites from the mice. I began noticing that there were white specks EVERYWHERE and continually reappeared despite vacuuming the previous day. Then one day, I woke up from a nap and felt something clogging my nose. I pulled out a clump of long white strandlike material and that brought me to the realization that something was wrong along with an infestation of some kind. I had 4 exterminators come out, telling me that there is nothing but "dust" after showing them the white specks. One of them said they were whiteflies and that they don't treat for agricultural pests. I then started feeling crawling/bites on my scalp, especially when I was in my car. I bought a steam cleaner to clean and kill whatever bugs were in there and strangely black specks and splotches appeared on the fabric that I was steam cleaning. (According to Ted on this site, Morgellons bugs turn black when killed.) There were also strange black, white, and brown specks and smears on my furniture and logically I proceeded to clean. Then I noticed that shortly after cleaning a furniture item, the specks and smears were on them again. I ended up throwing out ALL of my furniture and moved into an apartment that I find out to be infested with Morgellons and ancillary bugs that are attracted to it. I got bites creating an itchy red rash, put hydrogen peroxide on them and black specks surfaced. Strange material/particles appeared on all surfaces in my apartment and I began to feel bites or something landing on my head despite not being in the car. I also got rid of my car, fought property management to get out of the year long lease (and won). But the nightmare had begun. I stopped work due to all the sores/lesions on my face and dedicated all of my time to cleaning and trying to eradicate this infestation. At the time, I didn't know about Morgellons and never thought that these parasites are in my body. I continued to feel the bug bites and crawling feeling on my head. I also had the superbugs on my belongings and they would fly to my head/scalp when I disturbed whatever they were on. I lived in hotels for 6 months moving into a new room every 1-3 days, sold my car, and only had a large bag of belongings. Yet the plight continues. At the time, I realized that I could infest others, especially the people that I cared about and stayed to myself and my girlfriend who strangely wasn't affected at all.

Eventually, I spent all of my savings and maxed out my credit cards due to hotels, living expenses, and buying products to try to eradicate the infestation. I was homeless, unemployed, and lost most of my social circle. This was in Southern California and I had to move back into my mother's place in Seattle. No one believed that I had a bug infestation and family/friends even discussed an intervention for a psychiatric hospital stay. It ended up not happening but I knew then and there that I'm alone in this. I saw many doctors, mainly PCPs and a couple of dermatologists. None were helpful, few even made a close observation of my lesions/sores with all the rest saying that they don't see anything. I was prescribed Hydroxyzine for itch and tubes of steroid gel. Unknown to me, I was eventually diagnosed with Delusional Parasitosis and they put me on Risperidone. I didn't know that it was prescribed for their assumed DP diagnosis and was told that it would help me relax, so I took it. All of my cleaning activity caused the superbugs to infest my fingernail area. There was a white substance under my nails and skin around the nails, which were cracked and white in color. When I clipped the skin off, something would fly out and hit my face along with white grainy particles coming out. My clothes were heavily infested by then, with brown and white specks constantly on most items and the superbugs flying off and hitting my face/scalp. It was hell and I wished that I wasn't alive at times. In my mind, I knew that I couldn't even date or have a family with this condition. Also, I only focused on my environment and didn't consider that my health would be the key to repel the bugs and kill the ones on/inside my body. I moved into my own place and began infesting it, despite all attempts to stop its re-population, with ziplock bags. I knew that I had to work again to earn money for the products that I used. Ultimately, I had infested my workspace - keyboard, chair, carpet, and moniter and was being reexposed each day. People withing 10 feet of me would scratch or cough around my area on the bus. I knew that it wasn't a coincidence because when a lot of the bugs were jumping to my head, a lot of people around me are scratching as well.

Key points and what has helped me:

Now I barely feel bites/crawling from clothes for most of the day. I'm trying to rid them from my body and building up my health and immune system. When I use the bathroom for a number 2, I feel the bugs come out and get back on my head. I feel particles/bugs landing on my face/head. I know...it's disgusting and I have to rid them from my body. I even quit smoking due to this because the bugs will infest my cigarettes and when smoked come flying to my head and face. Even my medications get infested despite being double ziplock bagged in an "airtight" container after repeated openings. My plan is to leave everything behind(since it's all contaminated) and not have enough in/on my body that would otherwise infest new clothes/environment.

- The superbugs fly and their particles are airborne. This dynamic is the most challenging when trying to overcome this variation of Morgellons. Many particles float in the air constantly, emanating from contaminated belongings. It is one of its life stages - possibly nymphs. If you pay attention and look at the "air", you may see tiny tiny particles, which can be seen as a slight white blur. Sure some of it is dust but upon close observation with a dark background, the particles have a CONTROLLED floating pattern. I believe that this is why many people cannot overcome Morgellons. A person continually breathes the particles in and anything that is amongst the particles will become infected. My theory to permanently overcome Morgellons is to get away from the contaminated air as well as the contaminated items. For example, when I buy a new article of clothing and leave it unbagged in my apartment, it will start having specks/superbugs on it within 3 hours. After about 8 hours, it is fully contaminated and if worn, will cause crawling, itching, and biting on my skin and head. This means that wherever I go, there is a cloud of particles that envelopes/float around me. Not to be funny but think of Pigpen in the peanuts comics. This is why people will scratch and cough/sneeze when I am within 5 feet of them and on a bad day with infested clothing, 10 feet. This means that on the day of leaving everything behind SOMEONE WHO IS NOT INFECTED has to bring clothing to me; anything that I'm within 5 feet of for an extended period of time will be infected. Even ziplocked items are not fully protected over time. When the bag is opened, particles/bugs will float in and reinfest. This airborne aspect is why cleaning can be futile, because the airborne particles will just re-infect a cleaned item when placed in the other side of the room. This also means that I can infect others. I get depressed from minimal contact with family. I don't socialize much and don't have friends due to discomfort being around others in the same place for an extended period of time. My concern is that when they realize that they scratch while being around me, they will know that I have an infection of some kind.

- Cleaning needs to be done while the entire body is protected or covered. Keep in mind that some items cannot be cleared/rid of parasites. There are items, esp plastics where I have sprayed with a killing solution, poured boiling water on, and then rinsed only to still be infected evidenced by a white film shortly thereafter. Cleaning is basically moving particles/bugs from one place to another and it could be to YOU. The problem is when they are disturbed, they will become airborne and land on your body as well as being breathed in at a high concentration. I use Ted's recommended Tetrasodium EDTA/Ammonium Chloride formula to kill the bugs. Kleen Green purchased on Amazon ($75 + $19 shipping for a gallon of concentrate) works well too and I take a bath in it. It kills the bugs (EDTA is better at killing) and forms a protective barrier on the body when air dried. The problem while cleaning is when the solutions are sprayed on any surface, the live ones will fly at me. Their other particles will go into the air exactly where I'm at and breathed in. I plan on moving in a month and therefore decided to only do spot cleaning and not disturb the others. If I were to stay, I would spray EVERYTHING, including walls and ceilings in one cleaning session.

- These superbugs/Morgellons go INSIDE my body and will come out while on the toilet. I fear that it is also in other fluids, if you get what I mean. I'm theorizing that if my immune system is strong, then it will eradicate some of them. The other ones need to be driven out.

For building the immune system:

- Eating minimal carbs/sugars and consuming a healthy diet esp. vegetable/protein.

- Taking Vitamin D: 10,000 IU/day. There is a book about the author taking 10x the daily recommended dosage everyday for a year and most of his health problems - arthritis, high cholesterol, etc were gone.

- Taking Glutathione, which is produced by the body to rid toxins. The most effective product to induce Glutathione production is MaxOne GXL Glutathione. This is key to building my body back up. According to Wikipedia: Glutathione (GSH) is an important antioxidant in plants, animals, fungi, and some bacteria and archaea, preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides and heavy metals.

- Taking Cholorella (cracked cell wall) 8,000 mg/day. It is a green algae superfood high in chlorophyll, protein, antioxidants and minerals. It's widely used for its properties to stimulate and enhance the immune system, and reducing radiation treatment side effects by increasing white blood cell counts. In addition to this it has a chelating effect (getting rid of metals) which will help clean the bioterrain in my body. NutriGuardian's Chlorella found on Amazon has the highest mgs for the money.

- Taking a probiotic. This is to develop and maintain a strong immune system with the gut's good bacteria. The gut is a main component of our immune system and probiotics will help with nutrient absorption. I take 5 medications and they inhibit efficient absorption of nutrients. I chose a liquid form of probiotics (SCD Essentials Liquid) with the two main genus groups: Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Although there are others in there, broad spectrum probiotics will have these two groups. I found it on Amazon as well.

- Supplementing my diet with a multivitamin superfood powder to optimize my health. It goes without saying that a vegetable rich supplement is healthy. I use Amazing Grass Green Superfood Alkalize and Detox in a drink.

- Alkalizing with Ted's formula, mine consists of 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a regular sized drink bottle. I drink this twice a day, 30 min. after a meal. Parasites have a hard time living in a neutral PH body so this is a key step.

- Killing/ridding bugs from my body with Ted's formula which consists of a capful of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide 3% and 1/4 tsp (I added more) of Food Grade Borax.

- Expelling and repelling superbugs with Essential Oils formula. I found this here at Earth Clinic and it works! A person in an interview said that he/she was cured from Morgellons with this. It consists of 5 drops (I do 7) of the following essential oils with a water chaser after each oil. They are: 1. Clove Oil, 2. Cinnamon Cassia Oil 3. Lemon Oil, 4. Red Thyme Oil, 5. Oregano Oil, 6. Rosemary Oil. Use 3x/day and it's 3 days on, 2 days off.

- I take Biotin which helps with a healthy metabolism and creating important enzymes. Biotin is often used to strengthen hair and nails, and is also called Vitamin H (for hair). Since Morgellons affects the skin and the superbugs will bite/burrow into the skin, it's important to maximize it's strength. Many systems benefit from biotin including the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism and cells.

- Vitamin C - 3,000 mg/day. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, good against toxins in this Morgellon's fight.

- Wormwood Tincture - 3 dropper-ful/day. This helps drive out the superbugs/Morgellons. Wormwood is known to help the body produce an environment that is toxic to harmful organisms. It is also a powerful antioxidant and aids digestion.

Other Helpful Tips -

- Using an Electric Pressure Cooker for my clothes, with a wash cycle in the washing machine IMMEDIATELY after the cooking has ended. This will eliminate most of the bugs and will feel comfortable when worn. If you let it sit in the cooker, it will be reinfested due to bugs settling on the inside of the lid/top as well as the rest of the cooker. I hang dry if possible assuming there is enough time to dry before use. I cook clothes the night before it is worn. A pressure cooker gets the temp. higher than boiling water. This rids the parasites from clothes by killing and MAINLY driving them out of clothing items. Borax didn't work for the superbugs that has infested my clothes. I even boiled some clothes only to find that some were still alive and clothes still uncomfortable to wear. So I thought...why not cook them at an even hotter temperature. I bought a 10 quart electric pressure cooker found on Amazon (this was the largest one for electric ones that I found. Anything bigger would be an autoclave.) and in one session can treat a pair of jeans, 2 boxers, a t-shirt, and a sweater. That's one outfit, which I cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I make sure that there is at least 1/4 fill of water in the pot. WARNING: DO NOT USE IN YOUR HOME, USE OUTSIDE WITH ENOUGH DISTANCE FROM YOUR HOME. This is because A LOT of the superbugs will come out of the pressure cooker during cooking despite the lid being locked. They come out from under the lid and through the steam vent on every pressure cooker. I first used it in my apartment hallway and now is infested badly. Didn't think they would come out but they do. The area around the pressure cooker WILL BE INFESTED due to cooker use, so place accordingly. If you don't have an outlet, I recommend a generator to power the pressure cooker placed far enough from your home.

- Using a Far-Infrared Sauna to sweat out toxins and kill the bugs/Morgellons in the body. If you are not familiar with it, Google it. After each use, I feel super clean and bug free.

- Wear a bandanna, beanie, or other head gear whenever possible. My head is shaved and the bugs aim to go to my scalp when I'm in a badly infested environment or when cleaning. It's important to not allow more to burrow into the head. I believe that in addition to electrostatic energy attracting the Morgellons/superbug to the head, that these are socially oriented organisms communicating and ATTRACTING more to where a group/nest is. For example, if I spray EDTA/Ammonium Chloride to kill them on a sleeping bag, the ones that are still alive are all in clumps together.

- Use Nature's Gift Debriding Soap to kill and extract the bugs/Morgellons from the skin. Non-toxic and natural. It works very well and turned my situation around. The first time that I applied it to my scalp without diluting, there was a big purge of Morgellons/bug particles/specks with clumped up fibers that are round and thick in the middle. In fact, I applied regular lotion later on that day and it REACTIVATED the purging while I was on the bus. The moisture will reactivate and I felt tingling along with some crawling sensations on the head. Then fibers and particles dropped to my lap. There was a fan that the bus driver turned on above my head and it blew all the particles everywhere. Oh well. I use it full strengthen on infected areas to kill the bugs. In fact, my infected finger are now finally cured after 3 years. Apply and use a pumice stone to scrape biofilm/dead skin off infected body parts. Dilute it and use in the ears; I move my head around to get the solution flowing into all the space in the ear canal. I hear loud popping indicating dying bugs and after about 15 minutes, rinse my ear out with a spray from the shower head. Using Clinere earwax picks will extract dead ones as well after rinsing. I've ordered another bottle and will cover my entire body with it for 30 min. or more if necessary. You will feel the bugs move around trying to get away from the soap inside your body. For me, they exited out of my toes. I always felt them crawling up my leg to a certain spot and saw a cut/scrape there and realized that they crawl up my calf and enter the body in the spot. I don't remember scraping that spot and wonder if the superbugs/Morgellons created it. Thus be sure to seal all wounds.

- My keyboard was always getting infested and they jump at my face, along with particles floating above the keyboard, infecting my hands while typing. I searched and found WASHABLE KEYBOARDS on Amazon. I scraped money up and got the best one which is by Logitech and is truly washable.

I hope that all of this helps and please share if you know something that can help us. This is the only way for us to overcome these parasites/Morgellons; I felt the need to spend a few hours typing this up because what goes around comes around. Doctors aren't helping so we need to help each other. My email is socal2wa (at) gmail

Re: Dosage on taking Colloidal Silver...

I take 2 tablespoons or more three times daily to rid myself of possible system wide infections. I've been on that quantity for about 9 months. If I get a sinus infection or ear infection I must irrigate into sinus cavity on both sides and into ears. I use an ear syringe to make sure the CS goes deep into the sinus cavity.
