Some Skin Parasites Can Ruin Your Sex Life

Certain skin parasites can ruin your sex life--especially if you're single. They are not sexually transmitted but simply through skin contact or sleeping in the same bed. Not to say that if you're married they won't cause a living hell either. Fact is that by the time the infected person discovers he's infected with skin parasites, he's already infected his partner. And with these skin parasites, the last thing you'd be interested in is sex for you see you'll be so busy dealing with the itching skin and the biting of your skin that you won't be interested in having sexual relations. Sexual interest will simply disappear.

What kind of skin parasites could cause this kind of itching skin and biting hell? According to the experts there are several things to look for on your body to determine if you may be infected with skin parasites.

  • Fibers or filaments on skin at various non-healing sites where the skin parasites reside. You can see it with the use of a jeweler's loop and they are also fluorescent under a ultra violet light.
  • Cotton-like balls on your body without any reasonable explanation.
  • Intense itching skin.
  • Non healing lesions or sores.
  • Stinging or biting.
  • Hair loss.
  • Black specs on the skin and bed sheets.
  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Hard nodules under the skin.
  • Fibromyalgia or joint swelling and pain.
  • Presence of tiny strawberry type of spots--look like bright red blood spots just under the skin.

Any three or more of these symptoms are associated with the Morgellons skin parasite plus a most likely a co infection of protozoan and or Lyme disease.

Morgellons is just one of several skin parasites that reek havoc on the skin causing itching skin and biting symptoms that are relentless. Other parasites that cause some of the same symptoms are:

  • Strongyloides stercoralis-a nematode
  • Collembola (Spring tails)

Which ones are present are not easily diagnosed. In fact there are no recognized diagnostic procedures for Collembola and Morgellons and most doctors, upon examination of the skin, diagnose the problem as stress, being in your imagination, anxiety, general nervousness, Rosacea's Red Face, or worse yet that you have delusions of parasitosis, folie a deux (two people sharing the same fear), folie a tois (three people sharing the same fear), or acarophobia--enough to drive one away from managing stress to anxiety panic attack.

For strongyloides stercoralis there is a laboratory in Tucker GA, Parasitic Disease Consultants 2177 Flintstone Dr. Suite J, Tucker GA 30084 that will perform a blood antibody test for about $75. The phone number is 770-496-1370. But don't hold your breadth; even if it's diagnosed as strongyloides stercoralis, doctors are very unfamiliar with its treatment. Whereas they prescribe antibiotics for bacterial infections like candy, they are totally unfamiliar with the use of wormers and may not prescribe the correct one or the right dosage. They seem to have a fear of using wormers. 

And then again, since these skin parasites weaken one's immune functioning, other parasites such as collembola may have joined the fray complicating the treatment. In fact, for both Collembola and Morgellons there is no recognized treatment by the CDC--they are just beginning to research Morgellons.

Being infected with these skin parasites is a living hell-perhaps like Job's experience in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. But what's even worse, is that some of these skin parasites are extremely contagious. One person inadvertently gave them to her sister by exchanging dresses at a wedding; many infected from simply living in the same household; some infected from sitting in an infected chair; one claimed that she sat across from someone who was infected and caught the parasites.

In the absence of getting any treatment from one's doctor, in desperation he/she generally goes to the internet for solutions which is where one wants to be cautious. Everyone who has had some success with some kind of parasite claims to have some kind of regime for dealing with parasites-some harmless and inexpensive and some as much as $1,600 claiming cure in 90 days with another diet and tons of herbal remedies, cleanses or a radio frequency machine (very valuable for other health issues), but not proven for skin parasites or...

Truth is that "cure" is a relative word. Cure after simply a few months exposure can be accomplished with some specific inexpensive skin creams--no diet required. Cure after years of exposure is highly unlikely without the diet. After having suffered for approximately two years I discovered a dietary connection. There are foods that feed skin parasites and foods that starve them. The trick is to eat the foods that starve them and avoid the foods that feed them. The diet has kept me symptom free and healthy and yes, I've tried everything which is what my e-book entitled Soothing the Itch Within and the Diet to Control It is all about.

Suffering from skin parasites raises some important questions. How do you bathe? What skin creams or lotions provide results? How do you get skin parasites out of your bedding, furniture, rugs…? Although your doctor has no answers to these questions there are real down to earth answers to get your life (including sex) life back to normal.

Additionally the e-book and the diet is valuable as it addresses the complications of Lyme and Protozoan infection that often accompany parasitic infection.
