Hi. This is going to sound freaking crazy, but lots of people that I know has seen this happen to me. Working on the floor of cottage (surrounded by woods), I get scabies. Didn't know what they were until I went to Dr. A few weeks after getting them, I was coming out of laundry room and felt something like a pinch. When I looked- I was full of ticks! Freaking out- I tried to remove some and gave up after screaming each time I tried to. They really do latch on. I went to bed and told no one. When I got up In the morning all of the ticks were dead and drained flat. After that, when I tried to dig into my skin, it would turn a yellowish color and be almost impossible to get through the skin. Got my meds for scabies. Scabies gone and what's left of the ticks sink into my skin. Once again, try to work on this run down cottage and get skin mites- I'm moving! Take the meds, start to get rid of them and boom- they're back in full force! I had forgotten about my car seat covers. While waiting for the ivermectin to come in-my skin is just zinging and larvae is coming out of my pours- I'm covered. After the last time and having delt with bed bugs(thinking I got rid of those but no, still have the nasty things- I freak out about bugs. So this 2nd time- all I see are bugs everywhere. One night, I feel a pinch and look at my arms- an army of ticks. This time I show my whole family and they freak out too. After pulling the ones on my face off- ouch I go to bed. Get up in the morning- once again, ticks are flat and dead and being used! I show my family again. Make an appt with disease specialist. He tells me that they are not scabies, - can't be cuz they're not in the right place, says nothing about the ticks, tells me don't touch or scratch at all, and see you in 2 weeks. I get home completely disappointed. And look up skin mites. I realize because I have scabies bad, that it's Norwegian scabies. And that they can be anywhere on your body, mine are covering face and arms. So I use a tube of permitherine that a friend gave me and a full dose of ivermectin- the mites themselves are coming out to die. And there are hundreds! But what the heck about the ticks and the tick cement that the scabies had used? Found nothing online. I know I'm not crazy- others have seen the tick thing too. Please help- has anyone ever heard of this?
