Hi there thanks soooo much for that pic. A couple of years ago on another web site Suzy my friend in the States (I come from Auckland New Zealand) I sent Suzy a lot of specimens and they looked very very much like the same thing. I don' know wether Suzy has kept them, she did put them in the boot of a car that she didn't use she didn't want them in the house and I don't blame her. While I am here as I don't know how to start a new thread. I have a new GP I know that I have said this before but please bare with me. She prescribed Malathion Lotion and Aqueous cream AND THEY HAVE HELPED ME SOOOOOOOO MUCH. My itching levels have gone down from 8 out of ten to three out of ten. My pyschiatrist RANG ME TONIGHT and said that the results were very significant!!!!!!!! Do you all think that he is coming around to the fact that 'MAYBE' Roberta does have a parasite???????????????????Maybe at last I am getting somewhere!!!!!! I don't care what tests they do but if they find something then it may help us all!!!!!!!!!!!! After 11 years this is really a break through for me. And maye be he will delete DOP from his diagnosis. But he doesn't get the credit!!!!!! A very young new GP prescribed these lotions for me. I did say to her that maybe young blood and lateral thinking might help me, and please believe me it has!!!!!!!! I know that I will have bad times it is not just going to disappear but the relief that I have at the moment is tremendous!!!!!!!! There is one more think a lotion that a friend gave me and it is terrific. It is milk and manuka honey body wash. I have only used it once this morning with itches in my private parts and it worked almost instantaniously. You might be able to get it from the internet. Love and best wishes to all. Roberta.
The third pic down, looks exactly what grew 1/2" out of a cut on my thumb recently. I wish we knew something, this is just unreal. I know I keep going on about the milk topically, sorry, but it helps, it seems to kill whatever is "exposed" as far as critters go. Other than that, we've got to push on someone (Kaiser?) to find out what's going on.

Check out Eric Eaton's new Book!!! Our Readership is constantly inquiring about a great field guide for insect identification. Eric Eaton's new book, Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America is now in its second printing. Look for it at your local bookstore or buy directly from Amazon.
Here's that section enlarged. I used Photoshop and just clicked the button called "one step photo fix"... and just let the program do its thing. I must admit it looks a little menacing now. Your thoughts?
The first one I saw, which I blew out of my nose, had a tan/brown segmented body with spiked hair sticking radially out of it. This was between 7 and 14 days after I picked my son's cat up and placed it on my shoulder. I felt like I sniffed something into my nose. The cat lays in piles of dead leaves waiting for something to stroll past. It could have been a collembola, that I sniffed in. Well in the interim I had one of my worst tooth aches ever, and by the time I got to the dentist the pain was gone and he could see nothing in the tooth or gum and it remains that way for the last three years. It looked like what some collembola looks like on the various picture pages. I did not think to try to see the front end of it. Well later I clearly saw what appears to have been the front end of two white/blind collembola from the debris coming off of me. They had two relatively short antenna at the head segment, followed by several segments with a pair of legs out each side of that body segment. No hair on these two (at that stage of development?). This was back when I did not have a microscope camera and when I was also seeing the football shaped bundles of fibers, some white fibers with hooks clearly on the end. (I see some indication of a hook in one of JOSEJ's pictures. I also used to see the flat dark diamond to parallelogram shaped objects, also as shown in the blowup. I also used to see the tubular "hair" objects with something inside. I have a video of something extremely tiny moving along the outside of one of the tubular "hairs'. I haven't figured out how to post it. Notice also, that the "thing" appears to be segmented with antenna and what appears to be four legs. I believe Collembola are supposed to have about eight body segments and six legs. The third pair might not be very prominent.
FrustratedGuest: The only people that think this is delusional, are those that do not have it. I woke one day 3 years ago with 23 'bites' on my legs. After being treated for scabies & lice, checked for bedbugs etc...with 12,000 people complaining~Somebody HELP US!

hownow browncow : How do you know they were bites, because they look like bites, the bug thing is delusions, or doctors would see them, are you telling me doctors are blind as well as stupid, if they are blind how did they read there exams?

hownow browncow : The more interesting question would be, how do doctors pass those exams. If you would imagine I do not have this disease what would you base your intelligence on, five bug bite looking spots, 6, 19.

hownow browncow : Have you ever heard of Morgellons, that rash you had, imagine its a disease rash, part of the hidden ugly associated with being INFECTED with a DISEASE. Have you ever heard of a dermatologist, I will not say they are worth anything, but they treat

hownow browncow : SKIN ISSUES, not bug issues, still parasitic invasion is quite common, DEMODEX are VERY common, but they just are not this disease, you do not get a gold star. If the kind of itching I had was caused by a parasite I would have no body left

hownow browncow : Don't be frustrated, get some fertile chicken eggs, grind a hole in them and put a drop of blood in the embryo, I guaranty results, I think you will find that this monster can live in any warm blooded animal. Its simple, incubator, fertile chicken eggs.

hownow browncow : I know too busy shooing the bugs away. I had a Jehovah Witness come to the door today she had a few little tiny flys after her, she kept swatting at them, I asked her please do me a favor, stop bothering my flys they were trying to get something to eat,
Jul 27, 2014 0:34:58 GMT -5
hownow browncow : I know your in pain and disgusted, the bug idea is getting us NO WHERE except to the bug house, the funny farm, the loony bin, the rubber room, the bug factory, nut house, mad house. Credibility is nil when you say bug

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, why do you have to resort to sarcasm to ones' who are in the same rocky boat as you? I thought you were a troll! I can understand that after 42 yrs, you're probably real pi$$ed, but really, it doesn't help our cause! Don't get me wrong,
Jul 28, 2014 0:36:44 GMT -5
Kitty2014: humour is the most precious thing we have left, I s'pose and as futile as you think it is, I will always challenge anyone who thinks we are not speakin' the truth! I don't even understand why they come on here, as this is a Morgie community, is it not!?
Jul 28, 2014 0:44:50 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Anyway, I kinda like your style, now I know you're a sufferer! I'm sorry life and the to$$ers' who ridicule us have reduced you to your almost hostile sarcasm! By the way, I don't presume I'm special, with my own disease, just defensive of what I've got!
Jul 28, 2014 0:50:16 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Lol!!! Incidentally, got some interesting pics, but none of the little 8astard fibres or whatever they are! I've seen a couple poke out of my pores, but rather than get my camera out, I just panic and try to get 'em to go back in! Lol not!

Kitty2014: FrustratedGuest, I feel your pain! If you want somethin' that may be of help, with an alternative answer, look at: http://livingwithmorgellons.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/what-morgellons-does-to-a-life/ I've found it helpful, see Binky's posts esp!

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, I must apologise, it was Hownow browncow being almost hostile and accusing one of feelin' special! I am truly sorry!!! It's this box, gets confusin'! Wish we had a full page! Lol!

Kitty2014: Hownow browncow, hope you're feelin' much better yourself! Don't forget, we're the good guys!!! Peace and mental confusion! Lol!
