Invisible biting bugs or parasites living under my scalp


I have invisible biting bugs or parasites living under my scalp. They travel in and out of the skin through the front and back of my hairline.
In addition, they crawl into the ear, eyes and mouth 24 hours a day. Looking to treat it internally and externally. I believe this condition started after a stay in a North Carolina hotel. There I was bitten by a bed bug

Light drinker (drinks 2 glasses of wine on weekends)
Eat mostly organic vegetables and sometimes eat free range chicken
Don't eat a lot of sweets
No major health problems
Vertigo during the spring allergy season

I thank you in advance for any help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Tell me is it a sensation or have you seen these bugs although you said invisible but still you may like to clarify.

here are examples of

(Note: - Sensations are also important and should be especially noticed. For sensations of pain, of all kind see section 5. The special sensations may occur in any part of the body, or internally or in the head or extremities. Give the sensations in your own language to express it. No matter how simple or even ludicrous, it is necessary to give it.)
Examples: - It may be like a mouse or bug crawling; like wind blowing into the ears or eyes; as if someone was pulling a hair; as of a blow on the of a band or cord around the head; as though you had a cap on or hat; as a plug in the ears or some other place; as if another person lies along side of him, or that one limb is double; as if abdominal muscles were pushed out by arm of a child ;
as if boiling lead were pushing through rectum ; as if anus would fly to pieces during stool ; as if moisture, or a drop were running through the urethra back ; as if the year was grasped by an iron hand ; as if claws were grasping the bowels; as of a splinter in the throat or flesh like a string of thread on the tongue or in the throat; as if joint were dislocated; as; as if legs were made of wood.

(Note: - These are merely illustrations, a few which have occurred to other person, and are given that you may understand what is meant by sensations. Always give the locations as well of the sensations.)

You may have bird mites that hitch a ride on the bedbugs.

Read bedbugger.com forum, bed bugs in my hair.

It seems that the easiest solution to this is to do something
to encapsulate your bed, and shave your head. I know
they have a non toxic spray now to make sure your house
and everything else is fixed.

It feels like a thousands of bugs underneath my scalp. If I hit my head I can feel them scatter in different directions. I can also feel
them vibrate and a pulsing sensation as they come out of my hair follicles. Sometimes they hoover on my right shoulder or my upper back and neck. They feel heavy.
If, I spray hairspray at them they will move down to my feet or legs. I believe they fly. Also when they crawl into my eyes I can see something that appears dark and miniscule.

I thank all that have written in with suggestions. I am truly at my wits end with this situation and don't know what to do because my doctor can't see them and they don't show up
as parasites in blood work.

I think Anuj has some remedies for you to try.

I read about another person who had similar and no one
could see anything, and it was found it was bird mites.They
can be smaller than a dot of pepper.

Thanks Anuj!! I currently have MSM powder by Bluebonnet 26oo mg (Methylsulfonylmethane Sulfur) in my fridge. Can I use this? If not, I will pick up what you suggested at the health food store tomorrow. I will also look for staphysagriya q. I found Staphysagria, 30C Pellets online. But will check with my local health food store for Staphysagria q.
Thanks! I will report back soon.
SweetLeaf last decade
no pls ,have what i have suggested.
anuj srivastava last decade

the only thing you are going to find in your health store
is hylands cell salts of kali phos 6x.

You might not find even them. If you cannot find Kali Phos
6x cell salts then order those from DKO naturals in Canada
dr. Reckeweg brand- put dr redkeweg kali phos 6x in the search box.

The other remedies you can order off this site - abc
remedies shop. This is bc usa stores do not carry anything
over a 30c potency.

The staphysagria Q is the mother tincture. You click tincture
and Q will show up in the next box.

The sulphur 200c you can order in pellets. It takes around
3 to 4 day to get this - and the DKO site takes around
2 days to get it.

Thanks for the information about the products Anuj! I am going to order them tonight. I will fill out the questionnaire this weekend. I will touch base once I receive the products and start taking them.

SweetLeaf last decade
Hi Anuj Srivastava,

I found this on the site. Is this correct?
Staphysagria Format Liquid {potency 3C Size 1 Ounce? If not please send a link to the product in the store.

I think I have the sulphur correct:
Format Pellets, Potency 200C, Size 2 dram.

Thank you.

Hi Sweet leaf,

My name is Simone, and I am putting the ordering
info on for you.

Wait for Anuj to suggest on this.
I see that Boiron and Hylands on the Abc remedies
shop do not have mother tinture which is called

They only have as lowest available 3X. ( you do not
want a C potency)

So the option would be to get 3X in liquid if Anuj
thinks that will work. You need to order from
Hylands or Boiron so you get both things if
possible and do not pay double shipping.

However , if you absolutely need Staphysagria Q the mother tincture ( which is the base out of
what all potencies are made) you have to order
from Helios Homeopathic Pharm in the UK. Takes
around 5 to 7 days. It is listed at the bottom after
potencies as Mother Tincture.

Wait for Anuj to tell you, bc it is no use to get
some potencies that really will not do the job
for you.

There is no link to the product in the Store-
bc Usa won't sell the potencies you need in
the store.
simone717 last decade
Thank you Simone.
SweetLeaf last decade
I have not tried this potency,no harm in procuring and applying it.
anuj srivastava last decade
ok Summer, then get the 3x liquid, smallest bottle and get
the Sulphur 200c pills.
Remember to get the cell salts, either from your health store, or
whole Foods if you have one near you. Or order them from DKO.
simone717 last decade
Thanks. My good friend just ordered everything for me as a gift. I was too stressed out to place the order. Once the products arrive I will take them as you said and report back after four days.

1. Unknown invisible flies or flying parasites living and reproducing underneath scalp that exits from the front and back of the hairline. They crawl and fly into my ears, eyes and nose. I suspect I can see them when they crawl into my eyes. I originally thought this might be eye floaters. However, I visited the eye doctor twice this year and my eyes checked out normal.
I can feel the weight of them as they hover over over around shoulders, back, hands, and legs. It feels like thousands. Sometimes I feel a sharp bite on my hands or legs. They damaged the skin around my belly button but it has now healed. In addition, my eardrums hurt/feel pressure and the nose is often dry
I find small scratches on my skin, which is possibly due to this unknown fly or parasite digging or burrowing into the skin. Now and then the skim will redden around the trunk area or I will get an odd looking rash that disappears a few hours.

2. No physical/mental suffering before this.

3. I am disappointed that doctors can't easily identify this unknown creature. I was tested for parasites and the results were negative.

4. When I am at my worst I feel alone, sad, cry and question will this ever end.

5. It all stated last November after staying in a North Carolina hotel. There I was bitten by a bedbug. I noticed my skin became red and itchy, and I had a rash and a few bite marks.
A weeks later, I felt something trickling down my face. I went to dermatologist and was prescribed an antihistamine. Overtime I realized that something was living underneath my scalp and reproducing. At the time I can say it felt like dime to nickel size in amount. After I traveled to the Caribbean early winter and spent a lot of time in the ocean. At first they seemed to not come out. After returning home the amount of these unknown creatures grew to what felt like a quarter in size. As the months went by, it felt like half of my head was full of these things. Now there are even more.

6. Daytime is the worst because I am awake and aware of my current situation.

7. Things that are tedious and slow like washing the dishes bother me.

8. No. Have not started

9. Cool or cold weather

10. Moody sometimes. I don't have much patience.
-I don't recall feeling any different after a storm
-Yes I like the feeling consoled a little
-No not sensitive to light, noise and scents
-No wired habits
- They are very supportive
-I fear dying from this. I have dreamed about a cloud of flies leaving my head. In dreams I often see myself not wearing a bandana, which I wear all the time to try and keep them out of my face.

12. No food cravings

13. Thirst is normal

14. Hunger is less

15. No

16. Sweat is normal

17. Bowel movement is healthy/normal

18. Sleeping better at night now. I don't try to fight them with hairspray etc. Sleep is peaceful (8 hours)

19. Yes

20. I am constantly wiping at my face or swiping at my head to remove them.

21. Previous: Paroxetine 20MG Tablets & Gabapentin (Dr. treated as possible psychological problem)
It didn't work.
Sufameth/Trimethoprim 800/160 tablets
Single dose of Ivermectin
Mebendazole and Feddramin
Doxycycline 100 M (qty 28)
22. Makeup Artist
23. No major disease runs in my family
24. Fit/low body fat
25. n/a
26. regular period (3-4 days)
Normally a bit grouchy a week before period
27. n/a
