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 !

September 2017 will be 2 years of my search on what has invaded myself, family, pets, home and vehicle. I have been ridiculed, humiliated and told I was crazy. I've developed insomnia and a phobia, isolation is the only comfort anymore and it's effects have just about or are near to devastation. I've not missed a day within the last year & 6 months of actively trying to exterminate this devil. To live each day with this it's an ongoing brutal battle.

To Houston tx Yes, it's being called super scabies by some of the medical folks, but it is not. Scabies is a whole different parasite. I think some drs believe that's what it is, but none of these drs are actually doing exams or even a skin scraping to be viewed under a microscope. They r just assuming its scabies that has become immune to the products that's use to kill them. Until this "bug" is taken seriously people won't be getting help from their doctors. For what ever reason drs r choosing not to educate themselves further on this. All they have to do is listen to their patients. Doctors are trying to say some people are getting this from reading about it on the internet That they doing it to themselves. Well I got this YEARS before there was the internet. There was no one for to talk to about it except the people I worked with that had also. To Tulsa So sorry your doctor that you trusted and thought u had a good relationship with treated you so poorly! That was awful. I know how that feels. When some you think really knows you and respects you and see you as a solid person, turns on you like that. But with skin thing, you are really on your own. Well you and a few other thousand people online that you can chat with. There are a bunch of different sites to go. Some are selling products but also have a forum where you can see what people are saying has or has not worked for them. It's different with everyone. I believe this is a fungus on us and different bugs are attracted to that fungus. That's why people describe such a variety of critters. Then there are those that really do start out with bird or rat mites. But those mites also carry a fungus, that fungus can also cause a biting pinching feeling. It's sounds like with your dogs and all the rats you were talking about maybe your dog got rat mites on him. There is no easy cheap fix for this. It takes diligence and hard work. You may find that none of your other family members are bothered by this. A lot of us think it has to do with your immune system and also your diet. For myself, I found the days I ate a lot of sweets and carboydrates The bites were crazy!! Pay attention to what you eat. Keep a log. Make sure your water heater is turned up high enough. Turn your washer on hot and really test how hot it is. For some the hot water heater is far away from the washer. By the time it reaches the washer the just isn't very hot. Continuous use of pesticides on your body or in the house doesn't really seem to help that much more. All you can do is keep reading the different sites. Try not to panic. Minimize your wardrobe down to just a few things. Wear them over and over. When ur not wearing or washing them keep them in plastic bags that are tight tied. Wash your clothes every 2-3 days if you can. Get an 3 extra large lint roller. Use one on your body. One on your bed and one on the places you sit most often. Get a plastic mattress cover. Duct tape the ends closed. Keep you bedding off of the floor. Vacuume everyday. Look around your home for birds nest or damp areas. Like in the attic or under sinks. Or your house foundation. I've read of people wearing those cheap hazmat suits when they are in their homes. also sleeping in them. They said you can actually feel the bugs hitting the suit trying to land on you. Also wear those rubber croc shoes. Wear them in the shower. Use paper towels to dry off with instead of your regular towels that may still be infested. Don't take baths. Takes showers. Or if you do take baths , wash your hair seperatly in the sink. Some people only have these in their heads. Mostly. If you wash your hair in the tub you can transfer the bugs to places you didn't have them. Same thing in reverse. If these are mostly on your feet and legs , taking a bath could transfer them too. Just read and read and read some more. Pick out the things that make the most sense.

Could this be what's also called "super scabies"? Check out this video on youtube of people just like us. At least they got some airtime, but even a doctor with this was ignored by the CDC and local health office. "Body Bugs and Super Scabies" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRK1FSF2TSc There are some coping tips in the comments below the video.

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.

Almost whole Marshall U. campus area is now infested with these. Most people are spraying isopropyle alcohol. But it comes back.
