How do you get rid of a human flea type parasite that burrows under skin in scalp and skin? As an adult, it looks like a reddish-brown shrimp looking thing. You can even hear a cricket type sound in the scalp. Smaller ones are black or gray, round on one end and pointed on the other. I have gotten rid of a lot of them, but not all yet. They can drop over your home, infest your clothing, etc. I know to try apple cider vinegar, Dawn soap, and baking soda regimen in the bath routine. That helps a lot. Also, I am using an enzyme cleaner on the skin, as well as a cedar oil spray. There are no pets in the home. This was actually contracted while renting another apartment. Also, I believe these parasites were coming from a contaminated hot water tank into the bathtub faucet or cross contamination in a water line. There was black sludge that I saw coming out in the faucet. It looks like the fleas can survive water, because they were in the water. Any other advice to get rid of these? I will be trying some garlic pills and also used Neem pills.August 22, 2016 at 5:28 AM #52996
I have been struggling with the same problem – did you find a cure? I have tried many things including those you mentioned. Skin & hair treatment from doctor didn’t work.

Trying to determine if my child has flea bites on her scalp. Not sure what it is. I know where she lives part of the time has fleas, so that is what I’m assuming. Taking her to dr on Monday. But of course this is Saturday night and I’m freaked out.October 28, 2016 at 2:21 AM #58219
Have had fantastic results from using a soluble vegetable protein, that is sprayed/misted on and when air dried, suffocates the organism. The product is called Kleen Green and can be shipped in a couple days.November 2, 2016 at 4:45 AM #58695
What kind of dangerous symptoms are possible with flea bites on humans?December 8, 2017 at 10:06 AM #73801
I have 9 cats, love them all and they have had a rough time with fleas from being outdoors.
My solution, use a comb to loosen up the eggs and use 2 containers, one with soapy water, the other with clean water for rinsing and use a washcloth. Close your bathroom door and begin the bath process, the soapy water KILLS the fleas dead in there tracks. If you have more than one cat, you’ll need to do this to the infested cat. And lastly, keep them indoor and keep their environment clean. Vacuum, mop, dust, it helps a lot in keeping fleas at bay.February 22, 2018 at 5:31 AM #76803

I’m also having an issue with fleas, they are literally all over my body. I have no pets, I think I may have gotten it by putting on a short at a boutique, anyways they aren’t on my bed, or on my clothes, (just right now) I scooped 2 of them up from my ribs. I need an internal solution, rapidly, in order to alleviate my symptoms. I have been showering twice a day, sprayed ammonia on my clothes, washed EVERYTHING, and twice a day rub 50% isopropyl alcohol all over me, HELP, I desperately need it. But for people that need help with their issue, use the alcohol, although it doesn’t overall target it, it kills the fleas, as well as soothes the bites that have been inflicted, plus it’s a dollar and inexpensive.
