Urge the CDC to take action against surging unexplained disease

Messages Sent So Far
Thousands of people around the world, and the numbers continue to grow, are complaining of symptoms which include: crawling sensation, severe itching, stinging bites, skin sores and pimple-like bite marks. We continue to visit doctors and spend our money on senseless remedies, in a desperate attempt to put an end to our suffering. Many believe is microscopic mites, others believe is Morgellons...but in the end, none of us know with certainty what is the cause of this horrible affliction
We need Congress help urge the CDC to look closely and seriously into this mysterious disease that is plaguing and ruining the lives of thousands of people around the world. Urge the DEP investigate the pests responsible for this infestation.
Please take our plead seriously and help us !

I had no idea about this epidemic until I started feeling like bugs were crawling and biting but could find nothing. I started reading online how doctors would only tell you your crazy but I went to my doctor anyway thinking he's been a pretty nice guy and always seemed compassionate so surely I could trust he would be able to check me for scabies. To my shock I told him about my plight and asked him if he would check me for scabies only to watch his whole demeanor change. He started raising his voice to me and threatening to send me to a psychiatrist and had me crying I was so hurt and shocked at the way he freaked out just for the mere mention of scabies. He literally refused to examine me let alone treat me. I'm still hurt and confused as scabies have been treated by doctors for ages now you can't even mention it? I'm still hurt and angry because now I'm left with no choice but to self treat and the medicines I need are only available by prescription. I caught it from my dog who caught it who knows where. I live in Tulsa oklahoma and I have never seen so many rats anywhere as I've seen in this city. If you travel through and see what looks like gopher holes in the school yards I'll bet anything you'll be seeing rat holes and I've even seen them come out of the siding of neighbors homes in hordes the minute something disturbs them. Not only that but a river runs through and we've had everything from opposums to skunks and flocks of birds and raccoons in our fenced yard even a badger once. Well a mamma raccoon came in our yard and brought her whole family with her and made themselves at home under one of the buildings in our backyard. My dog wouldn't have it so they soon went to battle and the dog won. She moved her family out but soon after the dog who sleeps with me started itching like crazy even after I had her checked by the vet to be sure she didn't catch anything and was up to date. Whatever this is soon started crawling all over me but I can't find anything visible but the bites and itching. I've given her peroxide and borax baths used no bite mange remedy by durvet, Martin's flea and mange remedy and I've also used sulphur soap and rid bed spray washing clothes and bedding with borax and bleach. 91 percent alcohol but only temporarily slows them down. Frontline plus helps but still nothing rids us of them. Husband in the same bed they don't touch him. I guess it's all in my dogs head and mine. I'm beyond hurt I'm infuriated nothing is being done to help us. I read somewhere Dr's have been threatened to lose licence if they do because illegal immigrants are bringing them in. I guess potential voters are what matters but we vote too. Just Google it I'm sure you'll find it.My vote goes to those who cares about the U.S. citizens and vets.

Abdul, so sorry to learn that, but it is exactly the type of story that could make the national news if some people on campus would pursue it. Do you have an entomology department to identify the bugs? I lost my job because of lack of sleep from these things...I cannot imagine trying to get an education with no sleep and constant biting, sting, crawling, digging, and spraying of poisons....this HAS to go public! Some people said that the CDC knows about this but is trying to avoid mass panic -- well, mass panic IS APPROPRIATE and something needs to be done quickly. Thanks for posting, Abdul, and good luck.

To Auburn WA, we don't know how to get rid of these mites, which is why we're here pleading with the CDC to do the right thing by us. They are not "the usual" mites. To make your case at work, you can get samples on a lint roller from your clothing, skin, bedding, and upholstery, and pick the biting fuzzballs off your clothing. But no one with any influence in the medical "profession" will look at them. Our best bet is to look at why we, as individuals, are being tortured by these things and others in the same environment are not. The answer likely has to do with our immune systems and whether or not we host a fungus that the bugs like to eat, so mind your sugar and starch intake, use fresh clothing, towels, and bedding every day, eat and take supplements that will raise your body's pH to more alkaline as the American diet makes us too acidic, lower the humidity in your home if there is mold, treat any chronic infections you may have such as dental issues or lyme disease, take a few rounds of herbal treatment for internal parasites, which we all have... Your best bet for getting health care related to this is with an integrative (holistic) doctor or Chinese medicine doctor. It s&cks being treated like a nutcase and a leper, so you really need to become as informed as possible since none of us here are licensed to give medical advice and no one has "THE" answer, just some tips for temporary relief. Good luck and come back to let us know if you find a solution.

I've had this for several weeks, and don't even know the kind of doctor to go see that will take me seriously, since 3 treatments of Premetherine & Ivermectin haven't been successful. I can only try to use what people who have had these mite suggest, and so far a few things help a bit, but none have worked. How do you rid yourself of these mites? I go to work, and I get swarmed there by hundreds of mites. I can't get much help fighting them without physical evidence, or diagnosis. Please fund this research.

It is insane that do many people are dealing with these mites/ insects and the CDC not any other helpful organization has done one thing to help. Not even recognition of these ppl going through literal HELL! It's as if these little bastards were govt created??? Since every Dr I cried to for fear of my children's health told me I needed a psych eval! They wouldn't even get a feeling microscope to confirm wether it was me being insane or really what i told them it was, and this was ranging from St Christopher's to their regular ped. This is a disgrace, and should at least be acknowledged by your ppl, and it would be mighty nice if you could even come up with some helpful tips for us who are suffering. You should be ashamed to call yourselves the Center for disease control... Do your freaking jobs already... or did you when you created these little ****ers? I only hope you and your family never need to experience this insanity of having things you cannot even see crawling all over your children, home, face, hair, and body that you cannot find anything that kills these little ****ERS!!!

Thanks for the PT tip, Denver! I will have to try that. I used to think that the buggers were only in my clothing, but a year ago I was out of town on a business trip, scrubbed myself hard in the shower last thing before bed, went to bed naked, and within minutes the critters mobilized as usual. I had to come to grips with the fact that they are IN my skin. Regarding hot water wash, I have the same water heater issue as you, and bought a top-of-the line washer with hygienic and allergenic settings after my previous washer died of overuse late last year. This machine is supposed to heat the water up to 154'F, regardless of the temperature it comes in at. Bottom line: a waste of money because there is NO discernible difference. Any fuzzballs that still cling to laundered, soaked, and steamed clothing still come alive and sting as usual when the item is worn. Those gov monsters have really got us. It is not in my nature to wish ill on others, but I'll make an exception for anyone who has created or deliberately transmitted this, or dismissed, committed, chastised, or ignored us in our suffering. They need to gain a first-hand appreciation of this never ending misery.
