I've tried everything. stromectol pills and cream. Doesn't work. Only for a day. We are now going to an allergist today which I don't know what he will say. I feel them all over my body and can't see them. My boyfriend only has them in his hair. I can actually feel these bugs jumping out of my skin. It is driving me nuts. I bought sulfur shampoo and ointment and only helped a little. I feel them coming out of the skin on my face too. What are these things? Please someone e-mail me at lenoreschmettan@ymail.com and help me with a remedy on how to kill these things. Is this a mite? Am I having an allergic reaction to something? Do I have a medical problem? I went to so many doctors and was treated to no end of this.

Well, back from the allergist and he said that we both have something wrong with the nerve endings and told us to take zyrtec 10mg allergy once at night for two weeks and if we don't feel better we have to have further testing. My god this better work.

I hope this may help some people. I thought I had this problem with feeling things on me but couldn't see these bugs. I tried everything. To my amazement I came back from the allergist and he put me on zyrtec over the counter allergy medicine once at night and one in the morning 10mg. It took a month but I finally don't feel a thing. He explained that I had a bad reaction to something. I never knew that the nerve endings under my skin can make me feel like I have bugs jumping and crawling on me. He said we have nerves all under our skin and when they get hypersensitive they can make you feel like bugs crawling up and down our body, tingling, buzzing and jumping. I still feel a tiny bit but almost gone. He said I have to stay on the zyrtec for a couple of months.

I am infested with gnats as far as I can tell. They have been entering my eyes, nose and ears. This has been going on for a while. I've been to several doctors. No help. I'm losing my mind. It's warming up and I worry spiders will start attacking me in hunt of these insects. Is there any doctors that diagnose and treat this?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I'm am a physician with a strong background in biology and a scientist by nature. I was infested by these pests and tried everything: tea tree oil, borax scrubs, pyrethrin, isopropyl alcohol, sulfur cream, etc. I finally resorted to Ivermectin, which slowed it down enough to get on top of the infestation. I looked at many medical articles, blogs, and scholarly articles in entomology to research what it was and how to treat it. At first, i thought it was demodex mites but the inadequate specimens i had on the microscope didn't look like it and the pattern didn't quite fit. The infestation was mainly on my arms and chest, not face. I finally got a clear specimen that was DEFINITELY a collembola parasite. I showed it to a colleague who confirmed what i saw and compared it to pictures of collembola. This was clearly no delusion.
It's discouraging how much of the literature says that humans aren't affected by this, and it's often stated with certainty. It's even worse that people claiming to be authorities on the topic are mocking the sufferers here and telling them to get psychological help. It discredits my profession and makes us look narrow-minded. Science is about remaining objective and taking in new data for consideration. On the humanitarian side of things, it is discouraging people from seeking the specific help they need!
