I get them a TON....Still trying to figure them out but they seem to get bad when I eat certain foods and then scab over when I stop the "bad" food. But really..I don't know for sure.

I just did the IR Sauna and noticed that my scalp started burning so maybe detox as well?

I actually found that dry brushing before the IR helped alot with the itching and burning. I also sweat better if I dry brush first - opens up the pores.... just a thought.

No you are not alone..I take a some Chlorella and Seaweed before the sauna and that seems to help with my detox herx.

I feel like I am sweating out demons..... [Smile] !!! How long do you stay in?

You are not alone...I have 3 right now & never had them before treatment. The other day I was talking to a young man who has a tick borne illness also. He thought he was having a stroke since it was all on the right side. He was on the ground working on a car...I noticed he had hang tag moles only under his right arm...I mentioned to him I have the hang tag moles only under my left arm...It is my left side that is effected. Strange stuff! He still needs treatment & I'd love to find a way for him to be able to get it.

I have done 30 minutes @ 124 degrees, but have felt so awful & have not been in awhile, thanks this motivates me to get started after I do a chelation challenge test for mercury prerequisite to get the rest of my 10 amagalams removed, safely :-)

I have had scalp sores since I started tx with antiparasitic herbs and salt/c. Started pushing thru my scalp and then scabing.

They are parasites. When I picked at them the parasite would appear, and I could clearly see the shape.

A cold mixture of yogurt and Kefir, mixed with milk, and applied (put paper towel on and cover with a baseball cap) was the only thing that stopped the pain and burning.

Parasites are a MAJOR part of this disease, and should be treated with antiparasitics.

jpsmom; I don't know how hot mine gets..Mine is probably not as good as yours but I know I can only go about 20 minutes on the high setting even when I am feeling good! I tend to get a headache if I stay in too long..

Best of luck with your mercury removal and hopefully you can get back in your IR...

glm111; Can you suggest any antiparasticss?

Humaworm, Paragone, Parastroy. Hulda Clark. I also use salt/c. Do a search on here for parasites and also for salt/c.

thanks Gael,
i am on antiparasitic, so i guess they probably are, but i have never seen any. i have heard milk draws them out and heard about someone soaking in the tub w/ milk around a full moon, they of course are more active. kefir on the scalp sounds like a good idea !

I have them at my hairline on my neck and have had one or more for about 5 yrs. I could be wrong but I've seen research and posts that say Bartonella.

We shall see soon from testing. I wish all I had now were little pimple like itching sores on my hairline.

It's developed into something much more than that in the last several months. I've had all I can take. These skin lesions are painful, they burn and itch and drive me crazy. I actually feel them under the skin developing before they break the surface.

I'm getting them from head to toe now.

Mix the kefir or yogurt with milk, because the milk contains lactic acid and drys them out and kills them. Amazing how such a simple thing can help with pain.

P. S. If you are on antiparasitics, then that is what is making them appear. Stay on antiparasitics for quite a while if you can, to be sure you keep killing the infections.

Stay on maintenance dose because the parasites have layed eggs and larva and if just one is left to hatch, the cycle starts all over again.

I've done parasites cleanses in the past. No I haven't done anything in 5 yrs, something like that.

I'm really not thinking parasites, but you just never know. This has been happening for a period of years.

Great deal of stress could have let something get out of control. I will look into parasite stuff soon. Thanks Gael.

But past on sx and history with me and new tick bites I'm really thinking it's bart or even babs is looking like a real possiblity.

But parasites needs to move to top of my list. That's why I just had all co-infections testing done. I've got to know who I'm fighting, somehow someway.

I'm not doing it with abx. It will be another way whatever it is. jpsmom, I did a great herb tea with voodoo doc that had wormwood, black walnut and clove etc etc and used a zapper for 2 months as I recall before.

I need to go shopping for parasite stuff. Yuck!!!

Pam,

Parasites take a concentrated effort to get rid of, and long term tx is KEY. It has taken me several yrs of antiparasitics.

One or 2 months is just not going to get all the adults, babies, eggs and larva. I hope you consider this option.

Gael

Gael, I just wrote note to self. Parasites, herbs and rife machine every 4 days for parasites.

Thank you for reminding me. I get to using my rife for the big bad guys and I've lost focus on something like parasites????

So much to do!!!!!!!! I've just need to use my knowledge and focus on one thing at a time. There is so much to worry with since my illness has gotten so complicated of late.

I need to go have a darkfield microscopic look at my blood. It will help tell me somethings about the misery.

Thank you.

Pam

It's been 2yrs since the "parasitic infestation" diognoses, 1yr for "chronic Lyme" diognoses. Taking 2 diff antibiotics Monday, wensday, Friday, changed every 8 weeks, ivermectin 6, 3mg every 10 days, Bubur Pinnalla drops, samento & Banderol anti microbial defense drops increased every other day in green tea with stevia two x's a day.
Grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil, raw pumpkin seeds.
Lost huge patches of hair that are finally growing back.
Soak my feet in Bioenery foot bath. And soak in Epsom salt baking soda & Borax. I'm Getting better BUT Have A WHOLE NEW BATCH of WHTE LUMPS & Swelling cropping up under my scalp and now another section of my head is going bald!
I know I have to change my diet that been the hardest but I think I'm aiding the parasites by not eating clean. Need to follow an antiparasitic clean diet! No miracle pill for this!
The book "Bite Me" by Ally Hillfinger deals with misdiagnosed Lyme treatment & its affects.
Gonna try powder milk in the tub/head & see how that goes.
Good luck everyone!

I had them all over my head at the beginning of my ordeal. A nit comb, benzyl benzoate, and rosemary oil were the most helpful things. I wrote a book on how to overcome this most difficult problem after the drugstore permethrins did nothing but drain my wallet. If you want a free pdf copy please pm me.

Yes I'd love a copy! I've used a nit comb too but they're under the scalp. I need to break this cycle! My derm says it's sebum pushing the toxins out of the skin.
I think it's a bit more than that! They deff move! When I put essential oils on my head white lines appear in my eyes!
I've been to the eye dr 3 times with no help.
Very frustrating

I relate to this, woof. Don't scratch though as it only spreads the problem. Get a bottle of rosemary oil, star anise oil, or "Dermosan BB" (a 25% Benzyl Benzoate antiparasitic lotion from europe sold on ebay). Cover your head with whichever you find or prefer, then put a hat on.

Edit: Don't put 25% BB on the rest of your body - it's like napalm. Always shake the bottle before you apply it or you're going to have a bad time.

If it's from Morgellons, I like to rub oil of oregano (w/ high carvacol concentration) onto it. It keeps them out of it long enough for the spots to heal up. I've mixed Burdock powder into just enough coconut oil and used that too. : )

I haven't read the whole thread, but this works for me:

Strict avoidance of shampoos containing gluten, carageenan, fragrance, SLS, etc.

When I get a bump, i apply a tincture of green tea (about a cup -- brew it yourself) with a few drops of thyme. It really does work. Be sure to dilute the thyme in the green tea.

It keeps in your fridge for several weeks

Just a note and an idea for you all that works for me. I had the sores, have Lyme and coinfections and if you want a quick powerful solution, do a 100% skim milk only diet for a month. Every single one of my infections goes away within a week, my Morgellons red fibers go away, basically everything. The only key is you cant cheat with any other food. Think of it as a skim milk fast. I personally use Organic Valley Lactose Free 0%. There are a lot of reasons I think this works. Milk is ultra low in manganese. Lyme needs a ton of manganese. Protomyxoa and lyme biofilms need a lot of fat, this starves them of it. Dont know exactly why it works but it does every single time. Give it a shot,milk is cheap and I do over a gallon of skim a day somedays

Also,shampooing twice with Dr Bonners Liquid peppermint soap, and letting it soak in on the second round. Following that by rinsing and then soaking in ACV. They've stayed out of my scalp since I have been. This idea is from Morgellonsshield.com

Thumbs up for Dr Bonners Pepermint Castille Soap.

My #1 soap recommendation is "Dudu-Osun" (african black soap). This and only this has healed my morgellons lesions and you'll be happy you bought it.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FYZS526

#2 is Shanghai Brand Sulfur Soap from China (the best!),
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00R7T14J8

#3 is Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap (yowza!)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002LMN7B4

#4 is Margo Brand Neem Soap
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BN3ENM4

Hope this helps!
