Maybe I've been reading too much about parasites but last week after all that reading I begin to notice that my head itches a lot.

I've always had dry skin/scalp so I guess it could be dandruff but it also feels like something is crawling under my skin at times.

Has anyone else experienced this?

One of my worst symptoms is that my hair falls out all the time so I wonder if there is some parasite in my scalp.

Oh...and it is not lice. Unfortunately years ago I had experience with that after my kids returned from camp with them. I know what to look for so I know that is not it.

Just curious if anyone else has had these symptoms and found anything...or got rid of the itchy/crawly feeling.

Ya...

Yeast can cause all of that.

Babesia is worth looking at...

And def go after parasites.


(These are all major players)

You are not imagining that you feel crawling. After doing salt/c and many antiparasitic herbs, bumbs and lesions started to push through and appear on my scalp.

They turned out to be parasitic worms that were dying from the salt/c and herbs. GiGi has submitted much info in past posts on this.

Lyme disease has a MAJOR parasitic component to it. Do a search on here by typing parasites and Lyme. Check out

www.lymephotos.com

They talk about this phenomena.

Gael-

Lymephotos is one of the first sites I ever explored. I briefly tried salt/c but it messed with my stomach. As a result of all the abx, I developed GI problems that I never had before.

Ugh...this whole process is just making me crazy. To fix one thing, you cause other problems.

I will do the parasite cleanse. I've been worried about yeast for a while but still don't know if I truly have candida. How do you find out for sure?

I've been taking OLE, probiotics, followed the lyme diet ( little to no carbs/sugar) ever since I was diagnosed (7 months ago). I admit I fell of the wagon during Cmas but I've really tried hard to prevent the yeast.

Oh...I also took diflucan and nystatin for a while.

If it is yeast in my scalp is there any thing good to get rid of that?

You have yeast. You don't need tests done to know.

If you have Lyme and have been on abx treatment for more than 1 month... there's a 99.99999% you have yeast issues.


Check your tongue upon wakening up... if you see white on the back of it... you can be assured.
