I was in North Carolina at the time of hurricane Florence. I was staying with one of my sons and his wife who have no symptoms whatsoever. But then I went to Florida with my other son and his wife and was with them for two weeks prior to leaving out of Florida to go back to Oklahoma. I was in Oklahoma for about six weeks to two months before I noticed any symptoms. I started out having a rash that was invisible but itch really bad at night. Now I have hives that come and go. My lymph glands swell up but then that to goes away. I have been treated for scabies, 4 mites and bed bugs, and with no results. I have treated this as if it were an allergy, removed all carpet, went to all hypoallergenic soaps and detergents. The only chemicals used to clean with in my house are rubbing alcohol, peroxide, and vinegar. I have put hypoallergenic covers on my pillows and mattresses. I have tried Epsom salt soaks, Sulphur soap products, oceans of lotion, all kinds of cortisone creams, antihistamines like Claritin, Allegra, Benadryl, and Atarax. No help from anything except that Atarax semi controls the itching. It does not eliminate it or get rid of the hives that come and go on a daily basis. There is no Rhyme or Reason to when they come and go or when the itching comes and goes. I have been treated with Diflucan, miconazole cream, and other antifungal creams. My home has been checked out for bed bugs, mites and although none were found it has been treated for them anyway. I have washed and rewashed own Linens and laundry for 2 months and No improvement whatsoever. I am at a complete loss and I am tired of paying out of my pocket because I have no insurance to go to a doctor and get no relief. I recently spoke to my son and found out they have been having the exact same problem. It has affected him his wife and his child who is less than 2 years old. They have been to the doctors and we're told it was just sensitive skin. I don't buy that nor do I believe that because it happened to suddenly. They have been dealing with this for just over a year. There is definitely something going on and a correlation to the fact that we were together and in the same place. I am contributing it to being in Florida because the other son that I had been with prior to being with this one has no symptoms whatsoever. I do not know if it is something that is ingested but to me it seems like it could be parasitic in nature. I do not know if it is a bug or if it is a fungus. The only thing that my second son and I had in common was the fact that we stayed in Florida together. It seems odd to me that he has been dealing with this for over a year and now suddenly I am dealing with it. However no one else in my house has become infected. It is only affecting me. Please help me. I don't think this is something that is routine or normal. My son has gone through all of the many aspects of cleaning and taking care of his house and themselves and treated for many of the same things and come up with the same solution oh, absolutely nothing has helped.
