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 have Borrelia B, Babesia Divergens and Bartonella H. All diagnosed through PCR. My journey started with a tick bite followed by an acne looking rash. After being left untreated for a year by kaiser Permanente Northern California, my rash turned into Morgellons. I wish I was delusional. My reality makes zero sense and I'm not the only one. We are all sick and being neglected by healthcare providers. Find the cause. Find a cure. Do the research. Stop publishing delusional BS on the internet discrediting my physical illness. Thanks

Here is what I discovered since I posted a few months ago,dealing with these pests for years I'm happy to say I think I found a way to make life a little easier for all of us! I bought some sulfer soap and it was the best thing I every did... shower with it use a loofa sponge and rub it in really good, wash your hair with it and let it dry a few mins,wash it of with a good moisturizing soap,I use one with tea tree oil and condition your hair with teatree and mint conditioner .Shred a bar of sulfer soap I use a cheese shredder...get a spray bottle fill with hot water and the soap shake it really well,now spray everything in your house it will leave a white film on some stuff which you can always wipe off.spray under the bed and the mattress the walls floor carpets everything,I spray every time I make my bed the sheet blanket and pillows.Use Arm and Hammer laundry detergent and add the sulfer you can use Borax along with it but use a good softener after !. I wash every day and I spray my house down every day,I shower before I go to bed ,i have noticed a big difference after 1 week,it's been 2 months now and I feel I'm in control again,it will take a bit longer but after years of this tormenting biting ,itching and crawling life is almost back to Normal! I keep a spray bottle filled in every room and I always have one next to me, I think it's 60% better now... when I do feel a bite I spray the spot and it stops immediately, I have a little way to go but I am 100% sure this time I will win this battle! Never give up be strong you can win and have a normal life Again! I wish you all good luck and God's blessing on this war!

No one believes me when I ask for help. They think I parasitic delusions. My doctor put me on antipsychotic meds. Said my mental status was questionable.I suffer alone and I fight these bugs all day every day. CDC needs to recognize this problem and encourage doctors to address it more seriously.

Hi there Costa Mesa. Ur not crazy and ur not alone. There r thousand and thousand of people dealing with this. U didn't mention how long and what u tried. this is also mold related. Mold attracts all sorts of microscopic critters. If u have mold in ur home or work place, ur r breathing in mold spores. The mold becomes systemic with in YOU. The bugs and mites become attracted to YOU. Don't try to convince a regular doctor of this. They will note in ur medical file that u have mental problems. Instead talk to drs about possibly having a fungal infection of your skin and scalp or where ever on ur body this is affecting you. They can understand a home having mold and making u sick. Mold spores in the air can also feel like bites and stings and make u itch. There r also mold mites. That's not a generic term. Mold mites r real. I just can't remember what the real name is. But if u google mold mites u will find it. Mold mites have tiny little hairs that they shed. These get in the environment along with mold spores. Along with the other bugs attracted to mold. Like springtails. Check ur house really well for mold. Look in ur bathroom first. Under ur bath and kitchen sinks. Look under and behind the fridge and ur washing machine. Che k ur attic for tiny leaks. Check the crawl space under ur house for a leaky pipe. It doesn't take much to cause a huge mold infestation. Anyway if I can talk to ur doctor about fungal or mold problems, he may prescribe u an anti fungal prescription instead of an anti depressant and a referral to see a shrink. For real. It's very rare when drs actually do a skin scraping and have it checked under a microscope. U need to get the humidity down in ur house. If u don't have a vent or fan in ur kitchen or bathroom or a window, get a small fan. In the winter time get a small heat. Run it for 5-10 mins after a shower or bath to help keep it dryer. An air purifier will also make a difference. Cut down on sugar and carbs as best u can. This will help right away. Not make it stop, but it slows down the biting stinging. Mold and fungus like sugar. Get ur body as healthy as u can. Ur home too. Change ur furnace filter and check ur AC units for mold. Check for bird nest or mice-rats. In ur attic under ur house. even a near by tree that has a branch that touches ur house can make the perfect hiway for mites from a birdsnest to U. The best drs to help u r Lyme drs or naturopaths. Sadly naturopaths r not a first choice when people get sick. Most people don't see naturopath or homeopath drs until AFTER they've exhausted all other options. U can talk freely with an NP or homeopathy dr. They r used to hearing about strange stuff. Weird stuff. Unbelievable stuff. Make sure ur water heater is set hot enough. Use a lint roller on ur body and bed before u get in it. It SEEMS, that the bugs r less drawn to synthetic materials. That may help. Get a mattress cover too. When siton something lay down a large plastic garbage bag on the chair or ur car seat before u sit. Live as bare minimum as u can stand. I never had the crawling all over the body. But I did have the bites and sting fibers black dots and lesions that wouldn't heal. The lesions that were SO BAD and kept me from sleeping, I put ice cubes directly on them. A baggie would probably easier. But I found that the ice cubes would STOP that feeling of biting and movement going on in the lesions. It would allow me to fall asleep. I'm allergic to so many chemicals. I couldn't use pesticides. I did manage to get rid of them. It took me a few years. It wasn't fast. For me there was nothing fast about healing from this. I also put black walnut salve on the lesions. We also moved right in the middle of this things starting and quit my job which is where I got this from in the first place. Along with most of my co workers. I don't know that moving no helped or not. Most people it doesn't help. But because this plague wasn't coming from my home, I think my stuff didn't get as infested as it could have. One last thing. Especially if u have pets. Read about a fungus callled SPORO SCHENKII or sporotricosis or sporothrix. Wiki has good info. Read the WHOLE THING. Especially if u r starting to feel physically sick. Not just itchy. I can get sporothrix from ur pets. Sporo is a fungus found in dirt. Gardners can get it too. It's found all over the world. U can get it from having a cut and then the fungus spores get in the cut. That could happen just by petting ur animals if they have it in their fur. U can get it by breathing in the spores too. After u read that if u want to go further. Check out this guy on you tube. Type in this, THE UNKNOWN CAT MORGELLONS. There's 2 of guys talking about this. One guy is just a trouble maker. So u must type in THE UNKNOWN CAT Not just Unknown cat. He has put out several good videos. From when he was first sick to getting well. Turns out he had sporothrix. The fungus attracta the bug. He had the fungus in and on him. So the bugs came to him. It's worth watching his videos. I hope this info will help someone. Don't give up. Keeping talking. U just have to be careful what u say when dealing with MDs.

Dear Representatives of the people, I have a question for your. If the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, county, state, and federal health departments, and all major pest control companies won't help us with these mites, Who will? Of course, the answer is obvious, No one will help us. That's why we are forced to petition you. But, you don't know nothing about health care. And, even worse, you're swamped with petitions from big dollar Special Interest Groups and Corporations. So, you got to admit, it's kinda of a stupid system, don't you think?

Do Something and Do Something Soon! I am a single mother to a once happy 8 yro little girl, we were both happy and living life to the fullest until about a month ago and then our lives turned upside down overnight! I could go into all the horrific tales what is going on in both of our bodies but I believe 100% the CDC already knows what is going on! It all started with a lady in Korea and now it's spreading all over this beautiful planet invading our bodies like a terrorist attacking it's victims in the most slow and horrific manner ever thought of. What happens in the dark WILL come to light and by the CDC blinding their eyes to what is going on it tells the American people exactly what is going on. It's time they step up and if they don't won't to confirm anything that's fine but at least assist in a cure. If they need confirmation that this disease is more than delusional, I will be happy to send them specimen samples I have in each stage of growth that they can experiment on.

I'm 53, single, raising a teenager-working a lot of hours to provide for us it's already busy-then I acquired this- it's horrible the marks on my face the time spent in baths and trying different remedies the money that is spent buying anything that may help including pet antibiotics. I hope the CDC is allowed to study this again- an honest effort this time. Then maybe a cure. At this point I don't think anyone of us cares where it came from more than we care about just having our lives back for a cure. My 15-year-old also has it- It's already a rat race trying to make a good life. Trying to fix myself worrying about him trying to fix him. Very sad-I have to tell myself many times during the week to stay strong- don't panic.

This started with mites that were actually seen. But they were microscopic and probably thousands gathered together on a water bowl. Initially I had fairly good sized bites. Now I don't have any bites, but have the crawling sensation. This affliction disrupts a person's life completely, and destroys any productivity. I am just devastated to be suffering under this.

I thought I was going cray every speck of anything I thought it was bugs of some type. This a very debilitating problem. The apt I lived in before where I am now had black mould everywhere, they were remodeling and there was mould and lead paint,asbestos. I had to move because of health now, the new place I saw mould n the storage closet. They supposedly had some type ingredient to kill mould.I now see that is not the case. . These mites are horrible. Something needs to be done. Research needs to be done. When I went to the Dr because of the rashes and itching. He gave me some topical cream and suggested allergy meds. He stated that people spend a lot of money and can never get to the bottom of the infestation. More research please.We who have suffered know the horror it plays on your mental health

No cure here after nearly 3 years, but I am coping a lot better and only get a few "disturbances" at night. Here is what is helping me get through the night (yes, I do all of it every night): 1. Ease up on the sugar. Hard for some of us, I know, but worth it. 2. Go over your entire bed and pillows with a lint roller. Use several sheets to ensure that you pick up everything loose. Keep the roller in bed with you to "get" things and repeat when you get up in the middle of the night and morning. 3. Spray something of your choice on the sheets and pillows - ammonia with a bit of mint oil, 91% isopropyl alcohol with a bit of mint and neem or ylang ylang oil, commercial *herbal* insect repellant, etc. Rotate them. All are not good for you, but what the heck. 4. If you don't bathe right before bed, wipe off from head to toe with a clean washcloth and soap or makeup removing wipes. Be sure to get in between your toes and the bottoms of your feet. 5. When dry, go over your entire self with a lint roller to get off anything left from the scrub-down. Also the insides of your slippers. 6. Put coconut oil or moisturizer on your face and chest. I get few/no bites there this way. 7. Do a sinus rinse with store-bought saline solution or NeilMed packets and distilled water - not tap water because it can introduce new parasites to your sinuses. You may have white snotty-looking worms in your sinuses, nose, ears, mouth, and tear ducts, which are all interconnected. Alternate occasionally with menthol nasal spray. 8. If you wear clothing to bed, go over all of it with a lint roller, inside and out. Pick off resistant fuzzballs that are obviously not part of the fabric weave. Inspect seams too. 9. Apply some sort of deterrent to your trouble spots, which may be back, backs of thighs, privates, between toes, etc. Rotate these products, which can include msm cream, sulfur cream, tinactin spray, original Noxzema, Nature's Gift Debriding Soap, Home Health fungal lotion, salicylic acid lotion, etc. 10. While #9 is still damp, with a cheap makeup brush, apply FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth to these trouble spots. Do NOT inhale this stuff - I use a dust mask and do this while standing in the bathtub. 11. Apply organic herbal hand sanitizer, ionic silver spray, or Caudalie herbal water spray (expensive) to itchy parts of scalp, and only if it's bad, dust with diatomaceous earth. 12. Take 5-10 mg of melatonin in dissolving tabs unless contraindicated by other medical treatment you are receiving. 13. Brush and floss teeth and follow up with the mouth rinse of your choice. Sometimes I floss these little $#!+s out of my teeth! This regimen takes me 1.5 to 2 hours at night but helps me get to sleep sooner and stay down longer. Good luck!

Have tried it since but it has not worked. Attempted overdosing on meds couple of times as this will completely destroy your life without any hope of ever being rid of it.

Have been suffering with the above symptoms for over 2 months with no relief. Unfortunately due to lack of evidence doctors treat it as scabies but state they do no think so. When am around other people can see them scratch. Not sure how I got them or if they are passable to others. Doctors do not seem too concerned. Not sure if others in are afflicted and not saying anything. But do feel like it is a silent epidemic right now.

If one catches a camp fire gone awry early it can avoid a giant forest fire. When this thing first pops up for people in an early stage there is a chance Permithrin could halt it because it's still containable. Unfortunately at the beginning stage the doctors all too often poo-poo the patient...give some symptomatic relief with Benadryl, tell them it's probably a just a reaction to laundry detergent and dismiss the patient. This critical beginning phase if not addressed properly early on can lead to an utterly debilitating extreme infestation that will destroy the patients life. Doctors are oblivious to the notion of skin parasites generally and would only consider text book scabies as pretty much the only skin parasite out there. Even then many doctors are hesitant to even consider scabies and prefer to write the whole thing off as reaction to laundry detergent. The doctors are not listening to their patients and the result is ruined lives and untold suffering. No slight exaggeration. They find it fanciful that someone knows they may have contracted an ongoing stubborn mite from a farm animal or pet because they didn't read about it in the Merck Manual. Bottom line people have microscopic skin parasites in a big way and the numbers are growing fast. The doctors need to be more open minded and trusting of the patients in their care who are in desperate need.
