In June of last year, 2017, my indoor cat began shaking her head and was behaving strangely like jumping on top of the armor in my bedroom. The first thing I thought was ear mites, and that i’d get ear might medicine on the 1st. So i got a gallon of a pump bug spray, and put petarmor on her. I couldn’t keep up after a week, and the hot days (Chloe in her cage and i was spending my days outside on my porch) in between spraying the house.February 22, 2018 at 6:12 AM #77436
Hi Janet. ME TOO. For about the same length of time. Please email me and I will tell you what products actually seems to be working for me. Since we are going through this at the same time, maybe we can be of a help to each other. My email is cl_coder @ yahoo.com. Copy and paste will probably work best as some people can’t figure out if it’s an L or an I. Just so you’ll know, it’s an L.February 26, 2018 at 10:11 AM #77562
Had a nephew stay with us a few days and learned he was infested with fleas, but knew he may have had bedbugs in his belongings. He kept scratching his head and when I checked it I saw these bugs but couldn’t pick them out. I took olive oil and rubbed on his head, I noticed scabs, from head lice was my thought, then rubbed table salt on the scalp. We shaved his head and found no scabs. Weird we thought and put him in a bath with a little bleach. He felt better. The fleas came out of him while he slept. We bathed him again in bleach water. He was not itchy and said thanks uncle and auntie. This is when I learned they can get in you. After the bath we found no bugs, as he slept they came out from somewhere, where? His orifices was our only thought. It was true.. for his itchiness I showed him how to rub salt on his body, helps with itch and gets rid of fleas on the body. Even clothes, rubbing it on them. Throwing salt everywhere kills fleas and is safe. When he was to go home I told him to throw salt in his room to keep it free of the fleas. I too have been told I’m on drugs, tripping out, seeing meth mites and gotten the looks like I’m crazy. I don’t use drugs but have been accused of it since then. I had to laugh reading the articles of how you too are being accused of craziness. But if they don’t experience what we are, then they will never believe fleas are not just for pets. Also had to deal with the fleas in the home afterwards. Using lemon scented Lysol or lavender scent, Borax booster, Bleach, Dawn dish soap, and SALT, is what I use to keep rid of fleas. I live in Arizona with lots of desert. Salt does wonders for me. All my cleaning and laundry products are either lemon or lavender scents, they act as repellents.February 26, 2018 at 10:53 AM #77709
I have been battling this for 2 years. They live in my hair although I have shaved my head 3 times. It helped but didn’t kill them. You have to find what kills them and their eggs or they will continue to multiply. Dial antibacterial soap helps. Washing your hair with dawn and apple cider vinegar helps, but I’ve found nothing to kill these filthy parasites who attack your skin, insides of your ears and nose. A bunch of quack doctor’s who swear you’re crazy because they don’t wanna do their job. I caught these from an infested motel years ago and I’m still battling them. Wash your blankets and sheets thoroughly, vacuum regularly and use borax in your carpet, it helps but doesn’t totally stop these monsters. Keep fighting. I’ve tried every oil, but I will try the clove oil and ivermectin if I can get a prescription for it. Good luck to all.February 26, 2018 at 11:38 AM #78040

Hi did you ever get rid of them I have the exact same problem, can you help? Many thanks.February 26, 2018 at 11:53 AM #78058
I am so happy to have found this forum. I have been dealing with a flea infestation for months. Me and my poor animals have been suffering. We even bought professional exterminator bug sprays. Igr and an insecticide. I’ve only just begun the purse, and I was so upset to find them on me after I had sprayed my room and bed thoroughly.
I feel they are living in me. With so many soaps and meds and even soaking my body with iodine which is supposed to give fleas, have done nothing to rid them from my body or my poor suffering dogs and cat.
Sometimes I just want to burn my house down. Me and my pets would be out of the house. But those damn fleas will probably even follow us then.
I will be contacting my nurse practitioner to see if she can give me the medicine without a visit.
I have been so deathly afraid of going to docs even taking my pets to a vet, for fear of spreading fleas.
My poor dog is so sick and I am heartbroken. I believe he has a tapeworm.
Thank you for all of your posts. I hope this dilemma is a thing in the past for you.
I pray I can get rid of these suckers.

I got exposed by my dog back in 06. My dog slept with me and that was my mistake, loved her to death and glad I did, but not glad I’ve got fleas all over my knees, scalp, nose sometimes, the back of my hands, forearms, and the back of my calves and in the hair of my back. It sucks, thank God for Valium or I wouldn’t be sleeping at night, I just say screw em and go to sleep. If I am awake late I start to look for them and medicate the spots, then take a bath and they still come out of my skin.February 26, 2018 at 4:05 PM #79299
This is for Gary. You are the only one who has proposed a solution: ivermectin and Tweezers. Were you able to get them out of your body?
Any other suggestions on getting rid of human fleas or sand fleas?February 26, 2018 at 4:13 PM #78145
I had these fleas for more than two and half years now. I remember when I first got it was on my vulva area after I had sex with my boyfriend. He has two cats that he sleeps with. It itched me so I picked it with my nails and it was a speck looking thing. I taped it on scotch tape and went to see the doctor who sent it for pathology but they said it was just my dead skin. Well I confronted my boyfriend with giving me some kind of sex bug but he swore he didn’t have any other partner and he didn’t have it. Well I used hot water to get rid of it and used special bath powder but it never went away and one day I noticed it disappeared from my vulva area. I thought finally it was gone but sadly it all moved into my rectal area and I see it when I wipe after pooping. It is in my stool and it hasn’t gone anywhere. Recently I had some discomfort around the rectum and I had blood in my stool and got a colonoscopy and they found a tumor. The biopsy results came and it is a pre cancerous tumor. I am supposed to go see an oncologist next Monday. I am gonna mention to him that I have fleas living in my body. I still think these fleas are the cause of my precancerous tumor. I don’t think I have cancer.February 26, 2018 at 4:40 PM #79550
Finding this has helped, in a way. Nine months ago I started noticing bugs crawling on my my head and across my body at night in my bed. I have lived in the country my whole life. My husband didn’t believe me at first, but now has no choice; he is not affected by them. I have had my house and surrounding lawn treated 6 times. At the point I found out my closet was infected the exterminator said the only thing left was to burn down the house, helpful. I sacked up all our clothes and ran them through the dryer and bagged them up, very time consuming but worth it. Since our closet is an open walk in we put plastic up quarantining it. Nothing goes in if it has not gone in the dryer. In the last 3 months they have now entered into my ear and my private areas. The things I have picked up on that have worked so far are; vacuuming every other day including my bed. On days I don’t I use a tape wand, this has been a tool I use a lot. I have removed all the area rugs, wicker baskets, any cloth covering tables. I have put a bed bug cover on my mattress. I have long hair so when I get home I wrap my hair up in a chunk of flea collar. I apply dawn soap on my scalp with a q tip and use it for a shampoo, conditioner is required after I have started taking a shot of cider vinegar 3 times a day, I feel a little release with this. I found some skin parasite dust on Amazon and it is on the way, crossing my fingers on it. If I find something else I will share. It helps to know I’m not alone.March 1, 2018 at 12:59 PM #79694
Take heart. I have suffered this horror and was able to overcome it. You have to overcome all confusion, doubt, and fight to the very limit. These things want your body and your soul. The stress and every other negative emotion they bring weakens not only your resolve and plan of action but also your physical form. That is a medical fact.
Read my story…
Take what I pass along…
Remember, your are human with tools and intelligence…
Adapt my story to your situation…
Gather everything you will need…
Visualize and plan it…
Fight for your life…
I know what everyone here is going through. I spent 4 years with a partner that did everything to hide his infection that he had passed onto me from being revealed. Unfortunately he was in the medical field at the largest public Hospital in Miami. Hence, he was well educated on how to go around me and deal with the doctors to make it seem like I was insane and also a meth addict (although he did it himself and constantly fed it to me). The games he played with my head still scar me. It took 4 years to remember that I am human. I am normal. Never had a psychotic episode (even with all the acid and shrooms I did WAY before I was into meth). Always, always, always, believe in yourself. Even if it may be in your head…it is YOU who shapes your reality. So, if you clean incessantly, so what? As long as you feel comfortable that is your biz alone.
Regardless, after 4 long miserable years I had to flee from that environment (literally). Yet still being afflicted with this curse I could not get on my feet due to the fear of this plague and the “CO$TLY” trial and error with products and methods I had to research and implement on my own.
This ebb and flow of success and failure eventually led to a decision where I had to face moving back to my home town in Kentucky to live with my mother and her husband. This would be the first and only time since I had moved out when I was only 16 years old. She was such a refreshing light of support while I tried to hold on after I had left my ex that I vowed that I would literally die before I took this home to her. And I meant it. This is were I drew the line between me and the parasitic evil. It was me alone or they could have my lifeless body. But never the woman that birthed me.
I know Im being very dramatic but that feeling was real. So read into it and get a feeling for what you also must feel to beat this. The doctors only laugh at you. They will not help. Nor will anyone else. So… understand this.
As I said, I had some successes and fails that came from my own creative thought and various posts online that I educated myself with. (**There is a book, rather, Holy Grail, that I wished I had read at this point. It’s $2.99 on Amazon and I will post it’s title and author at the end. I highly recommend it.**). Yes, it is going to cost money but not as much as you think. It is the function and purpose of each item. It is the dedication and reputation of the process that beats the parasite. It is also the cleanliness and sterilization of environment and body that washes them from your life.
-1 vial of Ivermax injectable Ivermectin from Amazon ($25).
**This is the nuclear warhead. Pour-on, ivermectin paste, or pill just doesn’t don’t do enough. You will also have to buy syringes ($15) and “sharp” needle tips ($10) to administer it. It is a thick liquid so I personally order the 18 gauge needle and I shot myself in the thigh muscle.. IT WILL HURT. And the purging will begin swiftly (in about 10 minutes). But remember what is at stake.
-OTC permethrin lice shampoo. I’ve read in many posts that these absolutely do not work against mites or fleas. I beg to differ. But I also made my own rules in this process. After my shower before bed and after I injected the ivermectin, I covered myself head to toe with the large Walgreens brand lice shampoo that had permethrin in it. AND I SLEPT IN IT ALL NIGHT. ONLY TO WASH IT OFF WITH THE DEAD MITES IN THE MORNING. You see, when you inject the iver, the mites don’t die immediately giving the possibility and chance for them to somehow survive. But with a potent dose of Iver followed by a wall of permethrin for them to smack into as they fled they didn’t have much chance. Plus I believe the consistency/stickiness of the shampoo solution adheres it to the bugs quite nicely. It’s a better application than sudsing up and washing it off after 10 minutes.
-1 Bissell bagless vacuum ($69). It was a cheap but fairly powerful vacuum which I needed since I had the only bedroom on Ocean drive with carpet. Remember, if you use a bagless vac, it is imperative that you dump the canister in plastic bag, rinse it out, and take the bag out of your home as soon as the vacuuming in finished. If you can, vacuum twice a day.
-1 hand vacuum. The better you can afford the better off you’ll be. But any decent hand vacuum will do as you should have one for your bed, pillows, dressers, etc. Also the more versatile the better.
-1 (4pk) large sterilite containers from Amazon. The reason for these are simple. To protect your clothes from the environment. I scaled down my wardrobe. Threw out whatever I never wore. But if you can’t do that, double bag what you rarely wear in large bags and place in storage. What you do wear (I allowed myself 2 outfits per day for a week. That’s 14 shirts, 14 pant/shorts and so on), wash in hot water with a cup or Borax or a cup of ammonia for each load and after drying on high heat IMMEDIATELY PUT THEM INTO THE STERILITE BOXES.
***NOTE.. LEAVE ONE OF THE STERILITE BOXES FOR WORN CLOTHES. NEVER REWEAR AND OUTFIT. WHEN THAT 1 CONTAINER IS FULL WASH THE ITEMS IN IT. THIS KEEPS YOUR SLIM WARDROBE IN CYCLE. THIS KEEPS THE BUGS FROM GROWING LARGE IN NUMBERS. THIS KEEPS THEM CONTAINED. REMEMBER THAT IT IS A METHODICAL SYSTEM OF CLEANING THAT AIDS IN WINNING THIS BATTLE***
-As I mention above, stock up on Borax and/or ammonia. They not only help with laundry but they very useful as liquid sprays for cleaning surfaces such as the shower, counter tops, and your shoes. They do not fade colors. They are very effective at killing mites. Oldies but goodies and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
-Some form of sleeping aid. I won’t lie, injecting ivermectin isn’t pleasant. The Purge is intense. You are gonna want something to help you drift away while the meds do their thing. Be it Xanax or Benadryl get something to get sleep. This also washes away the stress and worry and allows your immune system to function at a higher capacity.
-5 cheap sheet sets. This allowed me to change my sheets every morning. And I would have a clean set of sheets to put on at night. During the day I left the bed bare because I had a…
-Vinyl mattress cover. Easy to clean if I did lounge in bed for a while during the day. A little ammonia spray and it was good as new. Yet it was not comfortable enough for me to stay there all day so which is good. Staying still is not your friend in this situation. We humans move faster and greater distances than mites. Plus they like to lurk where you sleep. So you don’t want to be there for large amounts of time.
And honestly, this is it. For the dosage for the ivermectin injection per body weight can be found easily via Google online. And honestly I did less, cause it hurts like a bitch. The needle is large and the liquid is thick. I remember using a 10ml syringe and my dosage was a full syringe plus an additional 2ml. Only once was I able to add the full dosage. I did 6ml in each thigh. After that I did 1 full syringe and then 8ml. And I did not do the injections every day. I gave them to myself every other day. But I made sure to sleep with the permethrin shampoo every night. Within a 7 days, I had no symptoms of the mites, fleas, lice or whatever the hell they were. I don’t know, and to this day I don’t care. I still had another week before i left to move in with my mother so I kept up with the cleaning with ammonia, vacuuming, and laundry.
I won’t lie. I felt I was taking a huge risk. I imagined blowing out my liver or kidney. But keeping my family safe was worth it to me. And it paid off. Sometimes you gotta take a leap of faith to find out what you can withstand. I was able to breath easy and reclaim my life. And I hope that my experience can help someone reclaim theirs.
Oh.. I mentioned the book, the proverbial “Art of War” against mites and such. Actually, it’s late and I wanna get back to my Xbox so I’m just gonna paste the link to the digital copy on Amazon. This book is IN-VALUABLE. And if your being bugged I implore you to buy it. He has about 50 other books as well, and you can even consult the author over the phone. I actually spoke with him for about 10 minutes even before i read this book. But he’s not cheap which is why I could only get 10 minutes with him lol. But he worth every second. This book I’m sharing, he is constantly updating as people give him new helpful tips, and better products become available against parasites. He cares about humans and this problem more than any doctor. And what make him even more worth your attention is that he speaks from experience. Yes, he was infected, cleared, reinfected, he infected others, so in and so forth. He does not shy from any of it. Seriously, this book is a must have.
How to Get Your Life Back From Morgellons and Other Skin Parasites Seventh EditMarch 7, 2018 at 1:30 PM #79920
I had this probably 2 years ago. What helps kill the eggs is a flea bomber, I’ve found what helps on the outside of the skin is flea + vets all natural peppermint spray, as for the ivermectin, I searched online and the oral pill is called “Stromectol”(please consult any doctor before taking these) I was desperate back then as I know some of you are, but you never know. I never ended up taking these but somehow they eventually went away. Different products I bathed in and helped a little bit:
-Some flea shampoos (DO NOT SOAK YOUR HEAD)
Also one thing I thought of that may kill them but haven’t tried (some people use it for health benefits anyways) is Cryotherapy, where they usually submerge your body in a mist that is negative some odd hundred degrees for 2-5 minutes, considering high cold and heat kills them, it’ll freeze everything EXCEPT your face so make sure you thoroughly cleanse your hair BEFORE AND AFTER ATTEMPTING THIS. Sessions usually go for $70-150.
I know how all of you feel. My Ex-stepdad brought home a stray puppy with fleas and contracted the whole house and I had to go to the ER once even after bathing 3-4 times a day and spending most of My day in the bath. They were literally eating away at my scrotum and it looked like a deflated red balloon. My doctors didn’t believe me at first until they saw open blood wounds where all the fleas (little white specks) were scurrying to in matter of seconds and gave me a formal diagnosis of fleas but couldn’t do anything but prescribe Benadryl. I eventually had to wash everything, alkaline my blood and improve my immune system. I fear they may be coming back due to my new dog and will be here testing other methods to help you all combat it.March 11, 2018 at 9:58 AM #80056
I am going through this flea infestation as you had, and I am wondering if and how you got them out of your body. I live in MN and my boyfriend and I have been to our regular Dr., Dermatologist, Infectious Disease Dr. and they don’t confirm it. It is crazy as we have no animals in the 8 unit apt. But we have mice in the units and squirrels in the roof and on our deck. We have been dealing with symptoms of something for 6 or 7 months and just recently figured out what it was by researching and researching as it has consumed our lives. Please help!
Thank You for your post also.

I don’t have bites anywhere but I know they’re in my mouth down my throat and on my neck. Please if anyone know how to deal with this let me know. One person said the invisible bug. Read up on it. Good luck everyone, if anyone gets rid of them please write it in the sky so your fellow flea killers can get relief.March 26, 2018 at 4:39 PM #80504
Have you tried drinking vinegar?April 6, 2018 at 6:52 AM #80760
Hi to all. I have gone through all four pages of posts and it gives me shivers. Three weeks back my maid who helps my mother at night told me that something bites her while she is watching TV in the sitting room. I thought it would be something like a mosquito and would vanish after some time. When this further continued and my wife also got red bumps and itched then I asked the maid to show me the creature. I searched on the net and discovered that it’s most probably a cat flea. It hops and has a hard shell so a blow would not kill it. It jumps so quick that I just feel the bite and can’t find the flea, but once in a while I may locate it on the bed but before I try to hit it would jump and disappear. My wife and maid are allergic to bites so they get more itch and red bumps. As the rascal has sucked enough blood from my maid and wife while they were watching TV or cooking in the kitchen, a full infestation has engulfed my apartment. I don’t have pets nor carpet, although on ground floor I see three kittens almost a month old. God knows if the 6 legged devil came from the kitten or my maid brought it from her home. I researched a lot on the net, asked questions on quora and found out many things. I bought a vacuum cleaner bag less but found that fleas run away if I don’t immediately seal it into a plastic bag. My wife, maid, my sister (who is visiting me to help my bed ridden mother) and myself have gone mad in vacuuming the bed mattress and floors. The second generation is very tiny and very aggressive in bitting. Yesterday I sprayed powder below bed sheets so that we may have at least peaceful sleep. We find flea eggs black specks scattered every where. From the last two days I find black eggs on my lap. I was wondering how do I get these damn material on my lap. But today when I got a sneeze and cleared my nose I found very tiny black specs in the washbasin. I was scared to death, are fleas living in my nose? Further I am also feeling worm movement in my rectum. Today I rushed to the dermatologist and he dismissed that fleas can live in the nose and Rx anti lice lotion and antiallergic. He said fleas don’t cause worm but you may take vermox to expel all worms. So here I am sleepless thinking what to do next.June 7, 2018 at 11:40 AM #82650
Same story. Since 2002 when I walked in a basement in Chicago. I wake up every morning at 1 am itching in many parts of my body: peri-anal, scrotum, inside the ear and nose too. Every morning i at 3 am I prepare a paste made of Borax 20 Mules Team and Palmolive dish washing detergent. I apply paste with my hands from head to toes. Then used a nylon body brush to brush my entire body. It takes me 45 mins. I also drink Borax 1/4 tea spoon of Borax in 1 gallon distilled water. 4 onz. 3 times a day until a gallon of dilution is finished. I also take Neem capsules that I prepare myself in the morning while fasting. And I clean floors, walls and ceilings with Pinesol once a week. It helps a lot but Im tired from so much work. I work at 5:30 am Monday thru Friday.June 7, 2018 at 11:42 AM #82620

I was reading on this post & I feel for ALL of you whom have had or are dealing with “Fleas” inside your body.
In 2012 I went to Pensacola Beach with my family from Kansas. When we were done for the day & we’re leaving we were attacked by a swarm of some kind of biting bug. I never thought anything of it until a couple weeks later I started itching like crazy. I just figured I had gotten chiggers or something since it was only around my ankles. Then over the next couple months the itching had spread to cover all of my legs. I went to my doctor & there I was called “crazy” told I had “Delusional psychosis” & that I had Nothing in or under my skin. I went to a dermatologist & had biopsy’s done & nothing was found. I saw a couple more dermatologist over the next 4 years just to be told there was Nothing on or in my skin. During this time I had been sitting in bleach baths, dehydrating my skin with rubbing alcohol & hydrogen peroxide with minimal relief. I finally got so fed up that I started looking for the hardest thing to get rid of on the human skin & I found out that scabies can be one of the hardest to treat. I knew that the treatment doctors used was a 1 time only pill of ivermectin & 1-2 tubes of permethrin cream (which was $80 a tube) & that sometimes it wasn’t enough. So I went online to amazon & ordered ivermectin (for horses) & 1 gallon of permethrin 37% (or 35%) with NO spirits. The horse ivermectin paste went by weigh, so I took a dose & then showered using the permethrin AFTER I had diluted it down to a 5-7% solution. I took the ivermectin ONCE a week & showered with the permethrin every 3-4 days. I had noticed that after 3-4 days the itching would return because after so many years I had eggs hatching Constantly. I also Deep cleaned my house, especially my bed, couch, & chair. Those were the areas I sat or laid the most. I changed my bedding EVERY day while I was doing the treatment. After 6 weeks of this I spread the treatments out because the itching had decreased so significantly that I then changed to ivermectin every 3 week, permethrin shower once a week then to every 2 weeks then monthly & bedding to once a week. I finally stopped after 7-8 months because the itching was COMPLETELY Gone! if you have experienced this intense itching you will know what I’m talking about when I say that it felt like my skin could Finally Breathe. During this whole time my skin had felt like it was clogged up & no matter how many times I scrubbed it just felt icky. But the treatment I did changed all that. I unfortunately have scars from my shoulders down (thankfully I stopped it Before it got my face) but considering what my body had been through for so long I will get over the self consciousness of having them.
I’m not saying that this treatment is for everyone & I can’t say you have the same thing I did. I’m just sharing my experience that I had with the No-see-ums, sand fleas, whatever other name they go by, & how I BEAT them!
Good Luck to y’all, there is a way to find salvation, you just have to keep on searching.June 26, 2018 at 11:55 AM #83484
Ive been going through a bad flea spell for the last 40 years! When I have a flare up, I get busy again on trying to figure out exactly what kind of flea! Ive come to a conclusion that its a tunga penetrans speci but they are all over the state of Texas! So sand flea doesnt cut it. They attack in thousands, roam all over your body. Mentally it puts your body in shock. Your anxiety sky rockets. I have seen the larvae everywhere I go. Schools, grocery stores, Walmart, tanning spa. No one wants to talk about it. I believe it is what people are calling Morgellons. Doctors can be idiots bc they are not taught in doctor school exactly about diseases and the fact we are all different. I think its plague, cancer spots and diagnosed as anything rather than what it is. It has always attacked my face and eyebrows and scalp this time. I think the doctors need to let you have as much permethrin as you need, not make it so hard to get. If you could stay on ivermectin as long as you need to people could get well! Its absolutely terrible and you will think of suicide!July 11, 2018 at 10:01 AM #83755
How did you get rid of them, you’ve described my life! I keep getting baggies and pictures and videos…OMG they are killing me!September 7, 2018 at 4:24 AM #84930

Phillis dabbs what happened? Did you get rid of them? Just this is the same as what has decided to take over, not just my home, but my life as in they are wrecking it. I don’t think I can handle much more of it. Everyone came in this chat and ranted about having fleas but no one seem to have come back on to say how they got rid of them. Can anyone tell me if they did and how they did. Thanks. Any information would help no matter how irrelevant you might feel it is.
