Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Medicine. Anything human!
I'm seeking informationa and discussion on the human collembola infestations. This topic has been touched in other forums in Human Biology but not discussed directly. I would like to share, test and discuss some of my own finding and theories as well as others presented in other forums.
I would like to being with understanding if and where any research projects are dedicated this parasitic condition.
Hi there ,
I am terrified bevcause I believe I have this as well as my little four year old.
I would like to know if you were ever tested and where.
Please devulge any information that may be able to help me.
I cannot get any antibiodics for my son or for myself.
I feel as though I am deteriating daily.
thank you for any help
This is terrible. You might be better perhaps to post on the fiber disease. I do not know, but believe that these arthropods live on plants, maybe systemically.
Contact Mary at the Morgellons Research Foundation, and see if any of your clinical features might correspond with Morgellons, or the Fiber (Fibre) Disease.
Contact Dr Amin, or read his literature (parasitologist).
Is that same as springtails? My study partner is exterminator and says they are really bad this year because of moisture in area. You could try insecticide I think (but not on body of course). Or maybe insect repellent for skin?
colembolla oh no!!!
Damien what do all the stages look like?
We know it does not have a larva stage
I still have not found the answer to my unidentified bug.

I know that they dislike dryness, and feed on (among other things) other arthropod droppings and fungi.
Some solutions can be prescribed for scalp and skin, but, if they are actually breeding on the scalp as a feature of Morgellons/fiber disease/neurocutaneous syndrome, then, perhaps, we are back to the Dr Schwartz protocol, or similar.
Also, read what Cliff Mickelson has to say about the callus, and about the borg loving oxygen, as do springtails.
I am writing to ask if anyone can please suggest what I should do.
I had suspected that my son was possibly infested with Collembola and Morgellons. It unfortunately is true.
Personally I discovered the symptoms in April, I have lost over 25 lbs now and have had wierd foriegn object in my stools (small black round balls, rice looking objects, and red thicker noodle ) what frighten me yesterday is that they are now much larger.
Because of the collembola I have also loss hair,vision problems, and have developed a huge cyst inside my eye lid. (suspected an egg, but may not be)
I was tested for parasites (neg) but of course never Collembola.
My need is dire. I am baffled on how quickly this disease is debillatated.
But unfortunately, what saddens me the most is that my four year olds health has turned for hte worse. He is having uncontrollable twitches all night, he is scratching like crazy, scalp, groin, under arm pits, feet.
He runs a fever (at night) is clammy ,sweaty palms. He has small hard pimple like bites n his arm and feet.
I have taken my son to our family doctor and Pediatrician. to no avail. Since his fever mainly comes at night, he looks fine during the day. (bites are explained as bites, but they are not going away. The other, explained as heat rash...etc...
I have an immidiate emergency. I am so desperate but dont have anywhere to turn. Please help with any, absolutely any advise.
Thank you all for listening.
Have you contacted your health Department yet? I would suggest you do that ASAP, they could help. Also, if you have health insurance call them and tell them what is going on. They have case workers for special needs and that is how I found my doctor.
I got so fed up with being shuffled around and getting no where that I called my insurance company up, told them what was happening to me and that they needed to get me a doctor that would agree to either rule out or treat this specific condition before any more future appointments were made. And that I was not going to another doctor that never heard of it before again.
Not only did they go out of network, I got the biggest most prestigious doctor they could find! Not that it makes him any more knowledgeable about this but at least he is trying.
Get your kid a lint brush, the sticky tape kind (pet ones work best) and tell him to use it where he feels movement. This should help some. You can also use it during the night on him if you see his sleep is being disturbed by the itch. Salt baths, sulfur powder, and garlic are our best defense without the antibiotics or other drugs.
Wash all clothes in heavy ammonia and pick the fibers off as you launder.
There is also a homeopathic remedy called Sulfur 6X that is safe for children. It is used for itch and rashes but it will also cause this stuff to exit. You may purchase this at any health food store for around seven bucks give or take a few cents.
You may also think about purchasing the tea tree gel type lotion that I believe is made by a company called Jason. The health food store associates will be able to guide you to this product. It works better for kids IMO because it is not real greasy and feels really good.
If you have any other questions please just ask. I am sorry to hear that your child and you suffer. Good luck and hang in there.
I am not sure if I sent this message to the appropriate site.
I am in need of recommendations of hair products. I do use the Paul Mitchell products but seem uneffective once it dries. I am willing to try anything. Even if it isn't for the hair.(oil/lotions etc..) as long as it doesn't flake where that would be a worse scenario.
I am having insects/flakes moving and popping off of my hair. It is quite embarrasing, not to mention uncomfortable, extremely itchy and hair frizz/almost standing straight up.
Please help with any advise.
Figured I would jump in on this~Heck~I've been dealing with this for almost 5 years now. Here's a good one for the skin when you just hop out of the shower. You know that sticky feeling that tries to win your skin back into miserable mode? Try Gold Bond ultimate comfort body powder. It's the one in the white bottle and have found that it is not kept with the same original gold bond and other antifungal products but with the lotions and after shower products (at least at Wal Mart).
In the shower, Physoderm body or face wash. Either one. Reason being, it contains salicyclic acid. Glycolic acid works great, too. I personally cannot live without these products.

she is awesome, shipping is VERY FAST and FREE. Her products also have been extremely relieving. Top 3~ For dry skin days are Emulsifying Cleanser....To literally remove the gook from your skin (also hair) Intensive Sea Cleanse and for the really bad days~ MD Formulations Face and Body Scrub. These are your 5 star products. Like I said, 5 years later, and a ton of money in search for relief. I might get a sore here or there. Just one and never more than 2. In the beginning, I had over 150 lesions, all on videotape to prove it.
Now let me ask any of you this. Have you ever heard of any other disease being treated in this manor? Look at the globe, Not only have all 50 states reported it but it's huge everywhere. They still try to label it as a delusional or psychological condition. Aids didn't even beat this race and did they label it or treat it in the same manor? I think not.
Anyone with me here? Don't exhaust yourself for answers. I honestly don't think we'll get them here. This is a deep one and I think our cure just might come with repenting and turning from our wicked ways. Our children are under what we do and who we are which means this is for them, too.
Please know that I am not trying to ruffle anyone's feathers, I have them too but from what I understand, this is a plague and indeed it is. I have heard that if we DO NOT repent and turn from our wicked ways, this is going to be WAY worse than what it is right now.
I want to thank you for all that great advise. I truly appreciate any , and I truly mean any information, suggestion's on this topic as well as Morgellon's.
If you have any other pertinent information please forward.
I would like to know if you are aware of anyone in Virginia (who does not mind disclosing e-mail/phone # )who might have this. I was hoping to speak to them. They may be able to direct me towards resources , physicians that may have helped.
I thank you for your support and guidance.
I know what you mean, but I do not think that this disease is the fault of the sufferer. You are not the one who has indulged in wicked ways here!
Those who have, or know who has, (if applicable) should not only repent but confess openly so that the proper treatment can be made available to all, including the poor little children.
Meanwhile, consult a knowledeable health care professional in order to obtain accurate diagnosis and full treatment.
See the writings of Ginger Savely on this, (Nurse Practitioner in San Francisco).
Her regimen of treatment has much in common with Dr Schwartz's excellent protocol.
Topical treatments can help greatly as an adjuct to systemic treatment, but check in case anything considered may be contraindicated at various points within the treatment programme.
