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????
