There is no more doubt that I do indeed have this morgellons dis-ease. It is so complex, with the "beast's" different manifestations, with all the different symptoms, the progression of thoughts and emotions - from disbelief, to questioning one's sanity, wondering, researching, frustration, finally to admit, in my case, that I really do have this bizarre thing. The physical and mental symptoms are bad enough, but the isolation this has caused me is perhaps the worst of all. I finally did go to see my son (he is autistic and in transitional housing right now, after a 3-month stay in a hospital specializing in autism and behavior problems) after 3-4 weeks... he was telling his caregivers how he missed me and wanted to see me. I showered, scoured, put the mixture (one of Ted's suggestions) of 30% orange essential oil and alcohol, on all obviously affected areas, after spraying my entire body with ACV... I put all freshly borax-washed clothing on, including gloves, as my lesions are currently abundant on one arm and hand. I tied my disinfected hair back and brought a hat... I was pretty much covered. I explained how I could not give him a hug, although he tried several times, breaking my heart. We danced to the radio music, sang songs, played "follow the leader", kicked back and forth a huge rubber ball... we laughed and played. It was a very good and needed visit. I did kiss him on the forhead, and verbally express my love... we had great eye contact, and he and I shared many big smiles. Today I find myself worrying if any of the "bugs" got left there... If I could possibly have infected him. It was an hour and a half visit, we were in the basement play area... I didn't touch much, and I never sat down. If I don't get myself better soon, he will end up in a group home, rather than returning to me. I will NOT risk him living with me until I and our home are CLEAN. I know I will need to move first. Does anyone know a step-by-step procedure in order to move without "them"? There are manifestations of them all over the apt. , and all over my stuff (much is actually still in boxes... Opened boxes. ) I understand about putting all clothing and other soft items in plastic bags, and I've been working on it. Does anyone know how to treat all my other stuff that can't be sealed in garbage bags... because they are on everything hard or soft. I do not have much money, so I can't just throw all my stuff away(?! ) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, so I can work toward moving, ridding myself of this, and reunite with my son. Somehow this apt. Was infested with the little buggers when I moved in - end of December. I don't believe I can ever be fully rid of them/this dis-ease until I am able to safely move out of here. Please respond if you have any answers or suggestions for me... I am kind of new to this.
I do have some observations and suggestions that I hope might help you all, as I have found some relief with these things:
Clove oil! Last night I was SO exhausted I couldn't find the energy to shower and scour myself, and my two fleece blankets that I sleep with had not been washed, nor my sheet/pillowcase. I put my finger over the top of my clove oil bottle, passing it over my sheet, blankets, etc. , allowing little drops to scatter over it all. I slept well, without them noticably bothering me at all! This morning I brought one of the blankets out and laid it over my computer chair. I examined the blanket then, and was dismayed to find several black specks (bugs! ) on it, and I picked them off to go put them in the toilet, which is my custom. They were dead! If they'd been alive, they would have tried to burrow into my fingers on the way to the bathroom, and they did not move on me or in the toilet. Yea!
I put this in my ears with my pinky fingers before bed, and when I'm sitting at the computer, or when ever I feel one crawling in there... it stops 'em from crawling... It's supposed to kill them on contact, but it seems to take a minute or two. I also sprinkle this around my bed and the floor by my computer, and under my dog's blanket. I made a thin paste uning this as the base, then I added olive oil and some essential oils I had around... clove, cedar, peppermint, fennel... It's a bit difficult to get the consistency just right. The first time it came out great, but for some reason the second time it came out lumpy and too thick... I think I'll try to fix it in my small food processor. So, if you get it to come out well, like a very thin paste, cover your whole body with it after evening shower, before bed. It leaves a fine, comfortable and soft coating, and you'll be much less bothered by the bugs. The essential oils feel clean and tingly... nice. You'll have to experiment with it, because I just added a bit of this and that till it felt right. Oh, I just remembered on my first (successful) batch, I added about 10% borax powder and a little salt, mixed the powders all up, then started adding the other stuff until it "felt right".
I have no bathtub here, so I can't do the soaks that some report have the things coming out in droves, so I keep rubbing various concoctions on my skin, to see if some will come out. I pulverized a whole, peeled head of garlic in my small food processor, then added about 4 heaping tablespoons of virgin coconut oil and a splash of olive oil, and whipped it up again. I rubbed this on my right arm, where there have been a lot of lesions lately. After awhile of intermittent rubbing, some of the black specks surfaced, but they were very alive. Each time they would surface, I'd run to the bathroom and grab some off me, putting them into the toilet. I've found that if you pull one off they will start trying to burrow into your fingers, so I rub my fingers together while I'm on my way to dispose of them, which seems to somehow keep them on the surface, then quickly flick it into the toilet.
I rubbed intermittently, a lemon half over my many-legioned arm last night while at the computer, just to see if it would make any surface. It didn't seem to, but I went to the bathroom, looked into the mirror, and watched in amazement as a black speck quickly darted out of my nose... not my nostril... the side of my actual nose! I was able to quickly grab it and put it into the toilet... Flush! I wish I could have gotten that on video... THAT would surely show the disbelievers something interesting. It was like from the X-Files. The living "black specks" look flat and square to me, and they can move and burrow very quickly... they remind me of tiny square, black bits of razor blades.
I just had an idea, while writing this... I do not own a video camera, or I would try to capture some moments like the one described above. Many of us have collections of artifacts... Mine are taped to notebook paper or envelopes, showing the various manifestations of these things; and when we go to the doctor and show them this stuff, IF they even bother to look at them with a microscope, they come back and say that "there are no identifiable insect parts... They are not living things... " - well, that is what has happened to myself, and others, I've read. How about this? Anyone owning any sort of video camera, please try capturing some of this "action" on tape, so we can show it to the CDC, etc. , and all the disbelievers that might be of some help if they saw it. I've read a lot of posts telling of applying something to the skin or bathing in different mixtures, and the black specks and fibers coming out dramatically. If you people who can get them to come out like that would make videos of it... that could really help, I think.
Good luck, and God bless us all!
Alone, isolated, sleep-deprived, horrified, I pull myself out of my discomforting bed and stumble in the dark toward the dining room table. I'd left pieces of clear tape hung over the sides, waiting for when I need them next. I pull off one piece of the tape, and carfully, in the semi darkness, place the small contents between my left little finger and thumb, unto the sticky side, then I affix this to the blank notebook page there. I'll wait to examine it later, after trying to get a little more sleep, as it's only 5:00 am, and I'm so exhausted. I'm in desperate need of sleep, but there are others in my bed with no intention of rest, but only to continue tormenting me. As I lay there and close my eyes, I feel their presence both physically and psychologically, persisting in their apparant mission: to drive me insane or eat me alive, which ever comes first.
I got out of bed at 10:00 am, maybe with about 2 hours of constantly interrupted sleep, feeling foggy and sluggish, but decided it was time to get up for the day. There are many chores needing to be done, all in the interest of trying to better my current agonizing situation. I don't know yet what I'll really be able to accomplish though, given my depleted state. It's time now for my morning tea and trying to wake up. I thought writing about this might help somehow.
I moved into a new apartment about the last week in December, thinking I'd stay here through the winter, and maybe save a bit of money to move into a two-bedroom come Spring. My 11-year-old son, after a three-month stay at Spring Harbor Hospital, is now in transitional housing, and is scheduled to be coming back home with me around that time. My son has autism with "danger behaviors" including aggression and a compulsion to run off, usually into the street. He has miraculously defied death or serious injury many times in the past several years. He needs constant care and supervision. That caregiver is usually me, as I would like it to be. During this transitional period, it is suggested and scheduled that I go to see him at his temporary home and school, to spend needed quality time together, and to learn new techniques, schedules, behavior management tips and etc. , to prepare us both for his return. Today is Thursday, February 10th. Wednesday is our day to get together. I have not been able to see him in over three weeks... the first was because of a blizzard. The reason I had to cancel this and the previous Wednesday, is because I have developed a contageous disease; and I cannot risk passing this on to him.
I went to the E. R. On Tuesday, February 1st. I brought an envelope with many dozens of strange sesame seed-sized (but elongated in shape) "deposits" that I had picked out from bites all over my chest and abdomen area. I showed them to the doctor, and he looked at both them and me with a strange, doubting, almost humorous expression. He said: "I have never seen anything like this in all my life". He took them back and showed them to his colleagues, and they looked at them with magnifying equipment, he told me, when he returned. He said "These are not bugs". He told me they had no identifiable markings like legs, heads, and I intuited that he was questioning whether or not I was simply playing some hoax on him. He told me that "for all I know, they could be scabs from you scratching at yourself". I asked him if he really thought I'd just gauge myself up like that, just to show up at the E. R. To freak him out or something... and his facial expression showed that he really didn't believe that, but just didn't know what to think. I asked him to take a look at the newer wounds/lesions that had reciently appeared on my upper back, which he did. He did note a pattern or trail there, which he thought was consistent with scabies. So, he gave me a prescription for Permethrin cream, and some pills (Hydroxyzine) for itching. I tried the cream from head to toe, as instructed, one night after my shower. I really felt some relief, and had my first decent night of sleep in weeks. Unfortunately, it all started up again the next day... crawling sensations under my skin, being bitten, more lesions, and the next night was sleepless, again. I don't get extremely itchy like many do, for me it is more painful, with the biting, and creepy with them crawling into my eyes, nose, and ears, etc. By now, I don't think there is a speck of flesh on my body they've not visited. Although the lesions are mostly on my abdomen, back, and arms, I have been bitten on my head, face and genital area. They particularly like crawling into my ears, biting me, laying eggs, "partying" in there. I've been dusting my body, inlcuding my ears, around my eyes, and a bit into my nose with food grade diatomaceous earth. This stuff is supposed to kill them on contact, and it does help, but they still seem to have enough time to do some damage to me before they die, and I'm able to pull them out. Even though I place some diatomaceous earth into my ears each night before bed, I still feel them crawl into my ears. I quickly get a bit of the D. E. (always by my bed) and put more into my ears. Sometimes I feel a lot of crusty stuff in there; and often when I rub this, I will pull out eggs (3-4 slightly smaller than a pinhead). Lately at times, instead of eggs, I will pull out a worm or worm-like creature, about 1/2 inch long. This is really horrifying to me! I now see these worm-like things in the house, usually on clothing or something soft. There are also black specs on things, and the little things that look to me like splinters of wood, about 1/8-1/4" long, thin, and pointier on one end than the other... These were the first creatures (?) I saw in the apartment, weeks ago, and they still far out-number the other things described above. I believe these are the mites that first bite me, and then all the crazy lesions and mutations happen after that. I'm confused about this, because with all I've read about mites in general, and especially the scabies mite, they are all described as much smaller than what I'm seeing here... "barely visible to the human eye", they say. They are everywhere... hard surfaces, soft surfaces, in my teacup, everywhere. The black specks are everywhere too, just not as plentiful. I have not experienced the fibers coming out of my body - just those hard deposits, and new freckle-looking marks, which some say are connected. I have, however, just in the past couple of days, seen strange fibers (blue, black and red) on the floor/carpet, mostly. This morning I found a blue ball of fiber with what looked like a white ball inside... It reminded me of a coccoon, and I taped it unto the notebook page with the other strange stuff. The worms really scare me, and I wonder how their population will increase. I wonder how many are living INSIDE my body.
This situation has caused me to become very isolated. I need to see my counselor I usually see on Tuesdays, but for the last 2-3 weeks I've had to cancel because I will not risk infecting her/her office; and she cannot meet me somewhere else because of "billing regulations". I cannot see my son, which is causing me deep sorrow for him, for me, for us. I cannot ask for help going to the store or the laundry mat, as I feel the need to be responsible about not passing this on to anyone else. My downstairs neighbors knocked on my door yesterday afternoon asking if I'd like to go downstairs and play cards and hang out. They really seem like good people I'd love to hang with, but... I went down stairs and knocked on my neighbor's door last evening and explained why I could not sociallize with them at this time (as they had asked me if I might join them the next day (today) instead), and I'd said, "That sounds good", not knowing then what else to say. I was verging on tears, feeling the need to tell her the truth. I feel dirty, even though I am not. I feel like a leper. I am lonely and traumatized. I need help, but have no idea where to go. I need to try some products like "Kleen Green", and I'm running out of money... the child support money has not come in yet, and I've not paid my rent. I don't feel it's right to pay my rent, because I got this thing from moving here; but I am too weak to fight anyone. I don't know if I'm dying or losing my mind, or both. I feel TRAPPED and helpless.
This disease that has caused me (and countless others) so much harm is called Morgellons. It is REAL.
Los Angeles, Ca
I have been visiting your site for sometime and it is awesome! I was reading about scabies and would like to add that maybe some of the cases could be Morgellons. Morgellons it is believed is systemic and is associated by mycroplasma. There may be 200 kinds of them. Some believe that Morgellons has association to eating GMO foods. I know that when I quit eating them things got better. I suffered untold unamaginable hell gor the first year not knowing what it was. Permathrin was a waste of money and so was Rid for head lice. Doctors are not good at treating this. In fact they seem to be in denial by the most. Natrual products worked. I am close to remission and like most have spent a lot of money. Sme have spent over $40,000 just to hear a doctor tell them it is all in their head; Wrong, it is real. Feels like bugs crawling under your skin, head, soles of feet. Open lesions can appear, fibers under skin and coming out. Awful, awful experience. Few will stand up for you because I believe they know but are afraid. A friend bought three DVD's from a program on God's Learning Channel about morgellons and wanted to give them to doctors. Guess what they refused and one said, " I fear for my life. " Weaponized mycroplasma is a good thing to read about. I found an article online about how the GMO grains crossed over into the horses cells and Sulfa drugs was used. There is many good sites about GMO and the affects on us. The American Academy of Envirionmenatal Medicine , May 19, 2009 is a very good article to read. Then ask yourself what could be wrong with your skin? I finally got smart and made my own cream which does help heal sores. The Borax and Food Grade Peroxide works. I also added L Iodine and dribbled it on my head rubbing with my fingers. I of course added water to the Peroxide but also put a drop of pur on places where a pimple was starting. Awesome stuff. You know it works or FDA would not be trying to get rid of it. Morgellons is parasites which are the base of most diseases. Did you know that every 63 minutes someone dies from cancer> Did you know that more die from parasites? Yes, it is true. So go to work and start gettng rid of them. I do alot of natural parasite cleanses including yes, it is gory but worth it; enemas. Doctors do not give antibiotics long enough to help us and most of them do not work for transgenic parasites/man made diseases. The research I have done is in the natural products. Tetracyline seems to help internally. I was going to try Grae Fruit Seed extract but could not find one pure enough. Does anyone know of one? Keep up the good work Ted. We depend on you since everyone else is afraid to cross the barriers to help those suffernig and dying daily.
Right on the Welcome screen this morning they are talking about how they are putting nanotech in our food supply, cosmetics, gas etc. It even shows the fibers wrapping around human hair, exactly like the fibers people are experiancing with Morgellons, see what the great scientific secture is doing to us, in order to create a name for themselves, wake up people, their doing in mankind, and the planet, we need to get back to natural ways.
EC: Can you send us a link to the article or show that you saw this morning? Thanks!
I'd like to point everyone to the suyspected origin & quite possibly the cause of Morgellons.
See Clifford Carnicom's AEROSOL CRIMES & COVER UP: MORGELLONS: GROWTH CAPTURED
CULTURE WORK IS CONFIRMED. http://www.carnicom.com/culture2.htm
Apparently & in my opinion, Morgellons is being delivered via the continuous ongoing Chemtrail spray operations that occur globally. Incidentally, I don't ever recall, giving my consent to be a test subject or ginea pig, did you?
Yes, I find Collodial Silver, Hot Peppers, & Garlic work to alleviate thes ymptoms, if not actually reduce the number of parasites. More to follow.
Interesting Info on Morgellons or Cryptostrongelous Pulmoni:
Following article is apparently the real name of the Morgellons worm....guess Australia is way ahead of the CDC...hmmmm:
EC: Look at that photo - yikes!
I have had the Morgellons like symptoms on three different occasions within the last 3 years. Eyebrows, eylashes, and hair follicules flaking with red, white, black and blue sand like grains that itched and floated in the air. If I was standing in the bathroom, you could noticably see the red and blue and black dots on the counter and in the sink. I collected some of these in different colors and size to take with me to the doctor.I was told by emergency room staff that I was delusional and that my evidense was nothing more than lent. I could see floties resembling lint floating in the air un high volumes in areas such as the bathroom when using a black light. These blue, white, red and sometimes black dots seem to land and dissolve into the skin with a small bite like feel. They grow in size and resemble freckles when on the skin's surface. It proves unsuccessfully if you try to remove these using normal medication for scabies. Also if you try to pop the pimple like things, they just ooze and leave open sores that have a dark ring around the opening. I and my 3 yr old son both have excema. Mine is localized on my thumb and his is on most of his body. Although I do not think that we are ever rid of this (parasite?) I do believe that I have found ways of maintaining in a dormant form where no new marks are visible until another exposure (usually a year later). Also I am relieved of the crawling sensation. Usually when people get these sores they avoid being outside due to embarrassment and stay covered up. I believe this worsens the problem. The two other times that I encounterd this I was able to see a reduction of symptoms through two common factors. The first time I treated it as if it were scabies. I followed normal cleaning (house and personal) procedures for Scabies with little results and started taking myself and my children outside for at least 50 minutes during the hottest times of the day. I made sure we participated in some actvity that was under direct sunlight and caused our bodies to sweat. The itching lasted for at most 2 weeks after repeated daily exposure to sun. I again treated the house and ourselves for a scabies infections while continuing daily sun exposeure. I also started cooking with freash garlic and onions about 4-6 times a week. We could no longer see them on our skin or feel them but I did continue to see black dots in my son's stool (he was around 1 yr old when it first happened.) The second time was about a year later and I followed the same procedures but also happended to begin tanning in a tanning bed. This quickly sped up the healing process of the crawling feeling on my skin and things seemed to go away. It seems after cleaning out my parent's garage, I opened a box and it felt like dust went up in my face and bean to sting a little. Later that night and in the subsequent nights, I noticed what appeared to look like glitter, then red dots and blue dots that would smudge when you wipe them. Then my face, body and scalp started itching. I saw signs of what appeared to be dandruff. I've come to realize that it always starts out with exposeure then into your skin and almost like an flower pollenates. it sends of white san like things from your hair shaft. Then the turn into red dots after the white ones (sometimes blue) land on your skin. They look like pen marks or very small blood blisters. The next stage looks like the red dots get darker and then larger until they resemble a freackle. But if you are familiar with your body, these freckles appear too quickly and seem foreign to wher you want to sqweeze them. It only seems to make it worse. I have used apple cider vinegar and found it very successful at removing the dark, freckle like ones. Unfortunatly I also recieved the burn mark on my face from the ACV to the point where I'm not sure which is worse. I keep vaseline continously on it to prevent exposure to new infection while it heals. After seein gthis website, I will try to consume the ACV solution 1/8 to 8 oz w2p 3 x a day for a while in combination with tanning again and will report back on the result. I have also had shingles about 5 years ago and do believe that this attacks hosts who are more likely to have asmtha, some form of HPV (shingles, coldsores), Excema, allergies and sinus problems. I believe that allows for an entrance site for the infection. I also believe that this is the same thing that many IV drug users and meth addicts complain about when they say that they feel bugs crawling on their skin. I personally belive that my family's exposure to this happens near the same time of year that we recieve a visit from a family member who is a known meth user. I believe meth addicts and herpin addicts contract this because those drugs make your body sweat and pores are stay opened, giving an entrance route to the (parasite?) similar to the open sores from people with excema, the torn blood vessals from people with allergies or sinus problems (from rubbing their nose). I have also experienced nerve problems and tingling sensations in my calves and muscles similar to those of shingles when I have noticeable symptoms. Some nerve problems that I would experience are similar to those of a drug user, I would paranoid, self- conscience, and easily irritated. I do think there is a connection between hay fevers, allergies, excema, HPV, morgellons, and the sciatic nerve. Loss of memory and lack of concentration are slo appearant but I'm unsure if that is from being consumed with something that is unexplinable and considered dilusional by mAany healthcare professionals. Currently, I would not seek help from a doctor again for fear of ridicule and accusations of being delusional by people who would not even take the time to view my "evidence" under a microscope or by my children's doctors when I brought examples and other articles pertaining to similar accounts. I was told that "the internet makes doctor's out of most patents these days." Sad but true. So I will continue to repeat previous steps and add a ACV and h20 drink to my treatment this time and will report back with the results.
Found Article! Have you all seen this article...it tells of a thing called Morgellons from years ago...tells remedies they used at that time...very interesting: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/letter/kellett.html
I am surprised at the lack of information and general implied skepticism when describing Morgellons. Perhaps you were meaning to sound unbiased but I as well as others believe it to sound quite the opposite...an unbelievable condition that people conjured up and are diagnosing themselves via the internet...not so, my friend and I hope that you never experience such a horrifying disease.
The fact of the matter is that when a person becomes infected, while one might try their hardest to reject these bizarre progressive symptoms, there is no denying that something is very, very wrong...and then the strange and disturbing journey unfolds right before your eyes that are oddly very similar in nature and description, to what other people are going through - even right down to how many doctors they have been to that are just as baffled by what they are hearing and seeing from their patients. It is very easy to "self-diagnose", once you have these distinct patterns of infection that your body is struggling to battle. For example, not any other illnesses that are in the medical books today, would describe an itchy, crawling sensation, only for you to continually find unwanted and strange 'artifacts' that you had never seen before coming out of the pours of your skin. The samples taken of this infection could not be produced from a person who has Delusional Parasitosis- if there really is such a disease-- especially when they are collectively the same in nature. And this is just one of the symptoms of this very complicated infection.
Furthermore, how and why are all conditions given a name? Names are given to categorize a set of symptoms. From past history, we have all seen how long it takes for the medical establishment to acknowledge a new and rare disease. While many people were suffering a long time with this illness and trying to seek help from medical professionals, no one was really listening. So, from a will to survive and out of frustration and desperation, a collective and intelligent group of sufferers took it upon themselves to compile the similar symptoms of a disease that was of unknown etiology. They became pro-active in hopes of not only finding a cure, but to prevent this from spreading to other unsuspecting people - such as the person who wrote this description of Morgellons. Now, thanks to these people who were "self-diagnosing", we have the CDC studying this, an independent lab researching, as well as a upcoming medical program that will be addressing this pandemic on national television.

I am suffering, horribly, from Morgellans Disease. My head is full of open sores, and biting things come out. It has been for 460 days now. I am losing my hair, my joints and head hurt. my life has come to a stop because of this. I was taking, MSM, Diamateous earth, wormwood, Citrate acid, Ionic Boron. I have done heavy metal Chelation, because I have a 4.7 cadmium level in my blood. The cadmium level stayed a 4.7 before I did Chelation, and it was a 4.7, after I did 6 Chelations. It took none of my heavy metal out of my blood. I tried Atristatin, that made the Morgellans, worse, and made me sick. Now I drink berry smoothies, with Chlorella and Tumeric. I have received the tetrasodium EDTA and the Hydrochloric Acid, I have Borax, do I drink it in water? Is Ionic Boron, the same thing? And what do I do with th BoPeep Ammonia? Roberta

I call this the common sense attack. I'm much better but can't say fully cured yet. Fitst learn to think like a bug. Where would you live ? hide ? feed ?
What kind of bug is this ? More than one. I believe its a food chain. One bug attracts the other. Thats why some things seem to help but make worse at the same time...kills this but attracts that.
Why do you attract the bug while someone else doesn't ? Chemicals in the body maybe, subtle fragrance maybe, diet maybe, low immunity, who knows.
I believe we have an internal parasite, maybe a worm that is good food to outside bugs. Ground Cloves are helpful for internal bugs. I also believe that the sealant on my dental work is a strong draw. My worst lesions are over my dental implants because I think the chemical has leeched into my body already so removing them would only have minimal results.
So....think like a bug. I have two major bugs. One Springtails. They are vicious. Live on everything, fly into you like a dart, ouch, and hook on with the same mechanism they jump with. They don't let go even when dead. Two...filth flys..yuk. These live in swarms near your drains or wet areas. When you walk through the swarm they embed thrmselves in the wounds and dead stuff caused by the springtails. Filth flies turn to a white wet dust smear when touched. Im sure there are more involved.
So, nothing will work on you if your environmrnt reinfests you just as quick. Start outside your home. Make sure there is no standing water, mold growth, vegetation growing against your home. No birds nests in the area, no leaking drain pipes leaving ground water. Put buckets under drainage areas if possible to avoid water pooling.
Mix lemon scented ammonia and SMALL amount lemon dish soap with water in spray bottle. Again dollar store items work fone. Spray outside house heavily! (save for floor and inside cleaning also ) This will not be enough..keep finding things to spray outside. Do it daily if possible. Try Blue mouthwaah, epsom salts and beer mixed with water in spray bottle. Keeping in mind this may kill wanted flowers and plants...you might try pouring peroxide on soil in wet areas. NOTE...Clean your front door and screen doors often...even daily. Your door becomes part of your room if left open.
Now, clean out all the drains in your house, invisible flys swarm there. Open and snake, then pour anything you can think of down there...not all at once...never mix chemicals, even natural ones. Use gel type cleaner to clean the sides of pipes. Now keep the drains closed....always! When not in use. Good hot water, bleach anything...constantly keep those drains clean and closed. I bet you will see a difference.
Clothes...you cant get better with contaminated clothes. Replace what you can. First clean your washing machine. Using your lemon mixture you sprayed outside..think like a bug. Never lead with your face. Hold head back while spraying, Ok Im a bug, the water is coming in...where will you run. Clean inside lid, agitation thing in the middle paying close attention to top. Really clean everything..sides, top. Use spray bottle and spray back of machine , underneath. Now pour white vinegar and water and fill drum. Now add water from sink to clean above water line. Let your cycle run to clean machine. Phew...I know! But what good is washing if there are bugs in there. Always soak clothes before washing. For me, Borax alone just won't do it. Being careful of expensive work or dress clothing...Soak in Spinosad. Its a natural product from the ground like Borax but kills bugs efficiently. I've had no problem with casual clothing...not sure about fancies. When in doubt, dry clean. Google Spinosad for brand name...starts with Captain. Its usually found in garden stores...buy the concentrate. Don't stop if doesnt work the first time...remember your problem could also be storage. Keep soaking in Spinosad. If not working try soaking in decolorized iodine. This will be more expensive. Again be careful with dressy clothes, testing for safeness. Soak clothes for as long as possible before cleaning. Important. these bugs swim. Use small bowl or cup to skim off the top of the water after soaking and flush down toilet. Now wash clothes in soap with NO floral scent. Sheets should not be 100% cotton...they love and breed in cotton. Stick to polyester blends. Use a seperate sheet to wrap just around you at night...roll up in it...have lots of them...wash after every use or at least every other day. Use the bottom fitted sheet from the set by simply cutting away elastic. For home clothes I recommend WalMarts black yoga pants with top waistband folded inside instead of outside. the fewer seams touching you the better. Cut the neck out of your tshirts to avoid seams. Lay Viva paper towels against any active lesion area and place clothes over. The Viva clings well to the inside of clothes.
Lots to know here of course. Now lets fight some mold and fungus. Make sure there is nothing growing in your bathroom. Use bleach to kill mold spots. Air out and ventilate after shower. Even better, shower at gym, spa, work, friends house and help keep it dry. Use super hot water to rinse walls and tub after shower because it dries faster. Pour alcohol down drain to kill anything you just washed down there. Close drain!
Very Important...replace your shower curtain. I guarantee they are living on it. I use dollar store shower liners and replace every couple weeks.
Buy lots of zip lock bags. Keep all bathroom counter items in ziplock bag...including toothbrush. Its much easier to clean the bag then to constantly clean the individual items. I suggest the same for things like vitamin and pill bottles..makes cleaning inside cabinets way faster. It also allows you to spray your lemon mixture into the cabinet lightly. Clean your countertops, wood surfaces as much as possible. Cover the back of your toilet with saran wrap or tin foil and replace it often. Never store anything on the back of the toilet! Keep super clean. Keep your toilet seat down...they love water. Always roll up pants before using toilet so they arent sitting on floor then pulled up on you. Remember keep your drains closed. Move your couch and bed away from the wall as much as possible.
Ok...now about that smell of yours that attracts them. Do not eat or store fruit in any infected areas. No eating fruit at home...nothing...careful even with tomatoes. Once you have fruit in your mouth they will come after your face. Eat it outside the home and brush your teeth well after. DO NOT use anything on your body that smells like flowers, trees, or food. Citrus in small amounts might be ok. Coconut is ok. This includes laundry products and dryer sheets.
Pay attention..When and where do they attack ? What did you eat, wash with, etc. I personally wont use tea tree, eucalyptus or other botanicals that make me smell like vegetation or trees. Now lets get personal.. flys like the smell of waste products...yep, monkey butt I'll call it. Don"t smell like that even a little. Use wet tissue toilet paper products...unscented! Never use the toilet paper thats been exposed in your bathroom. Never use kleenex or tissue exposed to the air in your house. Keep your tissues in ziploc bag. I like White Cloud wet wipes for personal cleaning.. Clean extra well with the wet wipes. Thats not enough. Use a cream of some sort...light or no scent...dollar store has aloe vera hemmorhoid stuff...works well. Replenish each time you use the bathroom. Douche clean with plain yogurt until no personal scent remains.
Use dollar store antifungal under breasts, inside elbows, top of shoulders, sides of nose and any other folds where it would be safe to use. Dab on sores to kill what the bugs feed on. Consider washing with plain yogurt occasionally. It helps to kill fungus and bacteria. Cover body with it including hair and leave on for a few minutes standing in shower then wash off. Always final rinse in shower with Borax and water to remove any lingering smells no matter what you use. I do not recommrnd ACV on you or in you if you have Morgellons....... fermented fruit draws flys. Wash with cocunut oil soap...3 for a dollar at Dollar tree. I wash my hair with it too then use an unscented conditioner. Note....wash hair in sink before showering if you can to stop bugs and hair product from washing down body. Will help stop body lesions.
Ok now that we have started to clean house, we can start trying to treat the skin. Rule number one...the best way to kill them is dry them up. I take a cheap knock off antihistamine every 12 hours with a break every couple days and watching for signs of dehydration. Calamine lotion might help. Alcohol is a good drying agent.
Taking Melatonin seems to help. I take 10mg before bed.Other things that help..Chlorella to flush out metals, Black Walnut to limit internal parasites, probiotics, Glutathione, NAC.
Miracle II all natural CLEAR product can be used everywhere! On skin...in eyes, nose, ears...brush teeth with it. so important to clean those areas, especially inside of nose. Their blue soap has too much smell for me..stick to the clear...no scent. The gel can be used on scalp with no greasy feel to hair ...on butt...near your eyes, under your breasts or genitals, anywhere with no problems. Much, much better than the petroleum product...vaseline. You can even drink the clear liquid. I keep it in a small spray bottle next to me always. Must be bought off the internet.
Soak your feet! Keeping fungus off feet is very important. I use a battery operated ped thing to remove the dead skin that attracts bugs and then soak in epsom salts. You could try peroxide for soaking also. Keep your feet scrubbed and clean. Wear shoes in the house...socks will just pick things up and keep them on you.! Make sure your shoes arent the problem. Wear shoes that can be cleaned. Use dollar store pad inserts and toss often. Never have contact with the permanent padding in your shoes...you will never get them out of there. Spray inside shoes after wear with alcohol to help dry them. Think about the coat you wear. Is it washable ? Is it clean ?
Remember to keep all clothes in plastic bags and dont expose them to the air until your house is doing better. Vacuum lots! Even run the vacuum on a chair just to pull some stuff out of the air. Suck up Borax in vacuum to keep bugs from coming back out. Keep everything dry in your house using your hair dryer. Spray car with Miracle II clear product and water. Keep spraying. If you have a desert area nearby, temps over 100 will clean out your car efficiently. Remember to open your trunk, your glove compartment, between seats storage and let that bake also. Get rid of cd cases, they love those. Declare war. Keep on it. Don't let up because it's somewhat better...it can come back..keep fighting. Use a pad type computer, they live in your PC computer! Keep earphones and extra wires clean and in plastic bag. Stay outside of your house as much as possible to weaken its hold on you. Go to the library. Go away for weekends...deserts are great! Sit in the sun when you can. Find moments to enjoy your life. Good luck!
I went to sleep 10.31.15 and woke up next morning w/rash all over my head face neck and chest. I was out of town at funeral so went to walkin. There I was given shot of steroid, script for more steroids an antibiotic. I came home thinking I was getting better, but on 11.20.15 went back to PCP. She said scabies. Grossly misdiagnosed. She said make sure you get it down there good. I said it's not "down there" and what about my head because she was only prescribing one tube of the permethrin cream. I knew that wasn't enough because my hair was long. PCP stated I am giving you shampoo for your hair. When I left that office I thought I was getting scabies ridding shampoo for my hair, but no it was steroid shampoo. PCP gave me SEVEN refills. Now you would think she thought whatever I had was bad cause who prescribes seven refills?? Well, three days later I was calling back for more cream and had to BEG for it. I was then referred to first dermatologist. That was a complete waste of time. She said you don't have scabies and didn't offer any other treatment plan or proposal of any kind. I have started going to gym everyday to alternate between hot tub, sauna and steam room. All of these are helping a lot and I am disturbing these mites for sure. Today, I took my waterpik put it on the slowest spray and fill container w/very warm water and peroxide(quit a bit)and sprayed it in my ears. I have asked three different doctors to clean out my clogged ears and they refer me to Walmart for ear cleaning kit. None worked. The spray felt good and it knocked out the white things in my ears. I have started an assault on my body w/water and heat. It is helping a lot especially the sauna because it's 170 degrees in there. I am done w/borax bathes and permethrin creams. I purchased one month gym membership and if it works plan on continuing w/membership. The isolation is almost unbearable. I put makeup on the spots on face and joined bowling team last night. Has anybody thought about suing their doctor for not receiving proper medical help and making you feel like you were crazy?
I wanted to confirm that the superbugs that I'm dealing with and has been my biggest problem is the same one referred to by some Morgellon's sufferers. I understand that there are variations and differing symptoms and that not all MD sufferers have the "bug" aspect. I am certain that I have Morgellon's due to thick black fibers with white feathery ends coming out of a lesion that never fully healed after a few weeks of what I believe may be a variation of the "superbugs" biting my ankles under my desk at work. My body started expelling these bugs after I found out about and used a debriding soap product; it caused for strangely shaped debris and squiggly short thread-like fibers come out of pimple-like lesions on my bald head and then the fibers that I mentioned above from my ankle. But these "superbugs" are causing immense discomfort and life-endangering associated floating/flying particles in my home.
The bug: clothes, plastic, and paper are their ideal infestation sites. Tried everything for the clothes and the only thing that has worked is Pressure Cooking my clothes for 2 hours to make them comfortable enough to wear for 12 hours before being reinfested due to the environment or reproduction. They fly extremely fast, and most likely whitish to translucent/clearish in color. I see white specks and white powdery residue on infested items. They are virtually invisible unless sunlight is shining from certain angles and when I disturb any item that they are resting on/in, they will fly for my face, especially my scalp. For example, if I open a ziplock bag of contents that they are in, they will fly out of the opening with enough force that I will hear a slight pop if they hit my earlobes, or clothing. It's not the air current causing for its collision with me; you can feel that it is purposefully flying at my face due to the force and speed between disturbance and making contact. If I'm washing an item that they are on, I will feel that something has landed on my scalp. Some are random scatter collisions but others are definitely with purpose as I've wrung out an infested towel, moved myself from being directly in front of the towel, and feel them landing on my scalp. As I'm typing right now, I can feel them coming out of the cracks/openings between the keyboard keys and pepper my face. Maybe so many are coming out that they are not aiming for my face but I doubt it because I will feel them landing on the BACK of my head.
The second aspect of this is there are so many floating particles/"superbugs" in my apartment that I choke/cough at times as I'm breathing them in. If I don't clean off most surfaces each day, the concentration of the particles are so dense that careful observation will reveal a slight haze of white in the air between myself and the object that I'm viewing inside the room. My joints hurt and I have a lot of inflammation due to all of these particles breathed in and I fear is contributing to my Morgellons condition and ever increasing Morgellons related organisms/myiasis inside my body. If so, my condition would be indefinite. I'm confident in saying that they are related to the superbugs because with careful observation against a dark background, I can see tiny tiny things floating/flying around me. The best way to describe it is to visualize Pigpen from the Peanuts cartoon and his omnipresent cloud of dust that surrounds him. Airing the room out doesn't help, they stay around infested items. Air purifiers don't help because the filter will become infested in a day and end up blowing the bugs/particles. Using a fan doesn't either because once the "superbug" infests the fan, more bugs are blown into a room. All it takes is a few infested items in a room and over time, the airborne particles/bugs increase in number and there is no saving it. My sleep has been minimal and I can't improve my immune system to fight these bugs from hell off. As I mentioned before, they envelope me and I'm breathing them in...causing health problems. This polluted air will infest ANY item within 6 hours; that is how bad this is. If I lay new clothing items out in the room, after 6 hrs, I will feel the bugs coming off of it when wearing. Black, white, and brown specks can be seen on the shirt. Moving is the only answer but I can't do this over and over.
This also complicates ridding myself of this problem because I will need to not only kill the Morgellons parasite IN me, but also get rid of EVERYTHING in my environment at around the time when my internal body environment is free. But one will usually cause the other and it's hard to time everything. Not to mention all the money that I don't have. Cleaning helps for 24 hours because anything cleaned will still be in the polluted air as well as being reinfected from the superbugs/cloud of debris that is around me. I've tried...to no avail. I'm ready to leave everything, then clean them off my skin, toss the clothes on my back, and for someone not infested to bring me new clothes to start over. And of course if my internals are ok, then I won't reinfest my environment.
I believe that some people don't realize this aspect to their condition and therefore not able to rid themselves of the problem. Or due to the inability to send a sample to a lab, some of us don't correctly know what we have. Add to that people who advise on the wrong parasite and it becomes very confusing. Does this parasite go hand in hand with Morgellons? Is this the same bug that Morgellon's sufferers refer to? If not, what is it? I'm trying to figure out if I have other parasites afflicting me. In terms of what's helped me:
1. Debriding Soap (NG) (Google it, it can be purchased on a website called "Get Your Life Back, LLC"). This kills the parasite in the skin and causes for debris/fibers to come out of lesions. I had myiasis of the superbugs in my fingers around the nails and anything that I touched would have biofilm/white granules on it. It contributed to infestation of items.
2. Oil Remedy: I found this on EC - Ingest the following oils: Rosemary, Red Thyme, Lemon, Cinnamon Cassia, Clove, Oregano. I personally do 8 drops with water, 3x/day, 3 days on - 2 days off. Less "superbugs" are attracted to me and I think it played a part in expelling fibers from lesions. Noticeably less people around me are scratching and sneezing from me, which would indicate that less particles are coming out of my skin. This is different from dead Morg fibers coming out: there are other ones that causes people to scratch and sneeze associated with my condition.
3. Chelating with Chlorella, taking Vit D 10,000 IU/day, Wormwood tincture taken internally, Glutathione (this is a key antioxidant and immensely helps with cell functioning, healing, etc), Biotin (I take double the recommended dosage on the bottle), Vitamin C, 3,000 mgs/day, Ted's ACV/Baking Soda Alkalizer 2x/day after meals, Ted's Hydrogen Peroxide 3% concentration (capful), 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda, 1/4 tsp of BoraxThanks for any input in a liter of water 2x/day.
4. Only necessary cleaning; all cleaning is moving contaminants from one place to another and with my condition it goes from an item to ME as I clean. This makes my body more infested. But I use Ted's recommended EDTA Tetrasodium 10%, Ammonium Chloride 10% in 80% water to kill/disinfect environment. Downside is when anything with the superbugs is sprayed upon, they fly everywhere in distress and many land on my clothes.
5. Pressure cooking clothes - only way for clothes to not have superbugs jumping onto me when wearing them. DO NOT use inside your home as the parasites will come out while used. Do it away from your home, outside, and know that eventually THAT area will be infested.
6. Always wearing a beanie/hat. It protects my scalp from further infestation and are purchased from the Dollar store.
7. Wearing a wet handkerchief on nose/mouth when cleaning or using a clean dust mask to minimize breathing the parasites in.
I have had Morgellons for over two years. I have finally found something that seems to be helping me. I use the dilluted oregano oil, ( 1/2 dropper of oil to 16 ounce spray bottle of water). I have had a very bad problem with my scalp. This has been working so far. I warn you that the oregano is very strong and will cause a burning sensation to the scalp. It is worse where the Morgellons reside. I spray anytime I feel something on my scalp or body. Make sure that you shake bottle before each use. It has loosened the fake skin on my scalp so that I can remove it with a good nit comb.
The other thing I am using is: 5 drops of oregano oil, 5 drops of red thyme oil, 5 drops of cinnamon oil, 5 drops of lemon oil, 5 drops of rosemary oil, and 5 drops of clove oil. Put in 3 ounces of water (oregano first so it doesn't hit your throat first as it will burn.) I gulp it in two gulps and chase with lemon water, as much as you need. I tell you this is not for the faint of heart as it will burn. I do this 3 times a day for 3 days then take 2 days off and then start again. I have been doing this for 2 rounds and have felt relief quickly. I will continue to do this for quite a while but will taper off the dosage.
I also use 91 % isopropyl alcohol on everything as it kills stuff in the enviroment, especially bathroom surfaces. I also spray my air mattress with it every morning and every night, putting bedding in freezer set at zero during the day. I then put in dryer before bed for 1/2 hour.
I hope this helps some people because I know how helpless and frustrated you feel.
May God bless you all.
