Ok, for the past several weeks my husband and I have been plagued with a parasite that is both under and on the skin. We both have been seen by doctors who professed not to know what it was and didn't even want to get close enough to examine. We offered a suggestion could it be a parasite and was told could be scabies. We were treated with several rounds of the well known, Ivecetrin and Promethium scabies medicine to no avail.

After several repeated trips to doctor we were told "we cannot do anything for you here, we are referring you to Dermatology". We went to Dermatology today and the doctor basically told me it was all in my head, that I couldn't possibly have scabies or bugs, it not possible. I insisted and thanks to my husband who took pictures of every phase of our experience we were able to show pictures of a parasites being pulled out of my back and several perched on my arms. Even with the pictures the doctor still denied what she saw and said I had convinced myself that they were bugs. She removed her gloves and rub her hands on my husbands hands and arm to prove her point. (waiting game for her's to materialize)

My husband had a separate appt. date with the same doctor and she suggested that he not come to that appt. and that he seek out a second opinion. needless to say we attempted this several weeks (referral outside the network)and it took so long that we rescheduled with our medical provider. Well after no help at all received today, we will be going to a medical professional outside the network and hopefully someone will stop long enough to listen and observe before telling us we are imagining things. If anyone out there has a similar experience and have found a cure, not a fix let me know. We have incorporated several fixes and while they allow us to cope it has not eradicated the parasite.
