i have bed bugs, head lice, scabies, and possibly rope worm, which does not exist in north america, apparently. i am at home most of the time, but i do have visitors. i believe all were put on me at the same time. it has been a month now, and my fear of dropping any of these tiny monsters on someone keeps me from leaving my home to seek the medical advice i need. i am an intelligent person, educated, and i love researching. i am at my wits end.
the biggest problem i have, and the reason for my post, is with my ears. i did not know i had headlice when i jetted hot shower water into both ears to relieve the tickle deep inside my ear canal. i did not know i had wax either. the shower impacted the wax and locked the little buggers in there. ear wax is not supposed to be good for lice, but it has become their nesting place. i can hear the eggs explode at intervals; i can feel them fight for life when i put known liquids of all varieties in my ear; i can feel them when they crawl out my nose; i may be be breathing them into my lungs producing a white foamy spit after a cough. i can hardly believe this is happening to me; so how can you, or any doctor, believe me?
i am a homeopath, and the only things i have not tried in my ears is honey, olive oil, garlic, white vinegar. the head lice are non responsive to double action flea shampoo applied to my head. they do not die, even when i put a bag on my head and pressed my palm where i felt them moving with the shampoo still in my hair. when i block off my ears, the tickle on my head slows down. just now i pulled a live bug off the entrance to my ear canal. not sure which way he was going. the best remedy is a spray bottle of 70% alcohol sprayed right into the ear. they drown, if i can keep it in there long enough; their squirming for life is more than i can bear. hydrogen peroxide feels good until it reaches in further, then the velvet knife pain becomes unbearable, and i have to dump it out. there is nothing i can do to fix this.
my emotional state has some new friends as well. i cannot even take out my own garbage. my bachalor apartment needs to be burned to rid me of the pests. i am 62, on a disability for ptsd, and very quickly going down hill. social services would put me in a home if i seek help. doctors will not believe me; my family is already estranged; but i do have a friend who knows i am not crazy. we both have been fighting these pests for the same time. we were together when infected.
i have seen evidence of their existence, including the rope worm, with a magnify glass. i have also seen other things that i do not know, but could be a fifth parasite.
i know you will tell me to seek medical advice, and i have, to be turned away for other reasons. mostly i am not seeking your advice; i just needed to tell someone that this is real, and i am suffering. if my problem is known to others, i would like feedback on their own story. i do not need any criticism; that will break me. an ear wax melter solution is what need most.
sorry, i did not proof- read this. i just cannot do it.
