I'm about to lose it with the itching and biting on my skin and face. Most of the posts here that are related to this condition seem to be several years old. Can anyone help me diagnose and/ or find a cure??? My dermatologist doesn't have any answers and I've been suffering now for over 2 months with this! I suspect some kind of microscopic insect b/c I never actually see these things on me or in my house. Everything I've tried only seems to aggravate them. I've resorted to actually spraying a peppermint-smelling flea killer (made for cats and dogs) on my myself, whenever I feel one of these things biting me. The stuff really stings and only seems to help momentarily. I've been washing everything in bleach and/ or pine disinfectant. My cat had the same thing--I am sure--b/c he scratched constantly and had several raw skin patches behind his ears. The vet confirmed that he did NOT have fleas, but one week after the visit he stopped eating completely and he died. I'm afraid of spreading this, so I've stopped going to church or out w friends. Can someone help me with this????

  • Have you tried tea tree oil at night? It has helped me sooooo much!!!! I bought a tea tree oil face wash then after I wash my face I add tea tree oil to my moisturizer. Also in a water bottle I put 50/50 listening and water and I’ll mist that it kills the bugs/ paradites quick!!!!!!

  • Do you have any sores and are you finding any fibers or small pieces of wood/sticks?

  • Try Diatomaceous Earth- Food grade. That's what I am hearing and it is harmless to people but terrifying if you're a tiny bug.

  • Sounds like your describing scabies or skin mites. Could be anytype of mite as well. Or foul mite/bird mites or red mites.

    They are so small that their almost in possible to see with naked eye. Some species are. They sleep during the day and look for food at night. Which is why the itching sometimes will increase then. Different species of mites have different M.O.'s some feed on dead skin cells,ear wax, molds, fungus, and just lay eggs within the skin. Some can live weeks without a host, dustmites with a dirfty home for example. So identify the species of mite is crucial.

    Something like %90 of them are females so just missing one during treatment can make the entire thing futal.

    If you rub permitherin cream on entire body but that doesn't kill the ones in your subcutaneous that don't come out or their eggs. Permitherin in a liquid will kill a cat. You cannot expose a cat to it. Something with the neurons and maken em... special from then on out and killing.
