I signed this back in January...Its evident no one is listening to this! I have heard the Kleen Green has worked for others. Just haven't had the money to order any yet. But I will as soon as some extra funds come in. I am now fighting shut off notices from all the things I have bought in the past that haven't worked!

We (me, my husband and our 2 children) have been battling these microscopic mites for 9 months now. We contracted this infection when in Southern California last summer at my mom's place. She had no idea she had them, but suspected her dog had mange.... Turns out she and her pets have this too. We have only tiny bumps, which turn into welts after a hot bath. They also are present on our scalps and get into our ears, nose, throat, and eyes (more with my mom and I as they prefer women, due to our hormones). We have tried every natural treatment (tea tree, neem--which I was allergic too and which is dangerous for children), epsom salt baths, coating ourselves with coconut and other oils (to keep the bugs from being able to move about and breed on your skin), permethrin on it's own, permethrin in combination with oral ivermectin (which we had to get from Tijuana because Health Canada wouldn't give it to us)... All treatments helped to knock the bugs back--especially permethrin with oral ivermectin, but we are not cured yet. Doctors, even my husband's reasearcher, colleagues, do not know how to treat this. They treat for scabies (if they believe that something is actually biting you and that this is not all in your mind!) which helps some, but does not cure. I believe these new mites to live longer off the body than traditional scabies mites, hence making treatment more difficult due to possible reinfection. I am pushing my own husband to find a way to research this so that all of us who have been affected can be cured. I no longer live in the U.S., but am a U.S. citizen, and I urge Congress to please fund research into this area so that all those affected may be cured and so that this does not become an even bigger problem than it already is. Thank you.

I believe this was contracted after a stay at a hotel. It's not bedbugs because it's on me all the time, and I have spent a lot of money with 3 pest companies and a dog that all told me it's not bedbugs. The medical community seems clueless. Treatments are ineffective. It's been over a year and I've infected people at my office who i have no physical contact with (they don't know about my problem but are now complaining). People tell me they feel itchy and crawly when I'm near them (again they don't know). This is going to be an epidemic and medicine better get a handle on it.

Entomologists need to begin working more closely with dermatologists. A trained entomologist can see microscopic mites in dust samples and on scotch tape. Mites can be present even without a severe rash. An entomologist I saw was able to identify a strange type of mite on my skin and in my bedding. The dermatologists I saw treated me as if I were crazy. This is a real condition that has to be given serious research.

I've been battling this for years, and secretly believe it was the reason I lost my job. Someone please, this isn't all in my head, my two sons are complaining of things crawling on them as well.

At first thought it was in my head, was worried about bedbugs, but never really saw anything. At times with the lights on even, I could FEEL something crawling on me, but couldn't see anything... this was months ago. Now it's to the point all day long I can feel these things crawling around on me and there doesn't seem to be any quick way to end it or guarantee to get rid of them. Please CDC, Congress, one of you do something, lack of sleep is gonna kill me.

This is real. I'm suffering from parasites in my body and different bugs in my head. I'm not sure how or what caused this. It needs to be addressed.

Been dealing with them for 2 years. Came in contact with invisible mites from a hotel room. They can drive a person mad fairly quickly. Needs to be addressed.

How is it my fault when I unknowingly moved into an apartment that was infested with some type of microscopic insect, refusal by both city and county government to assist in eradicating this things from my life that may very well be contagious.

After fostering a fledgling sparrow found in Receiving at my work & noticing tiny bugs crawling off of the bird varying in sizes I have begun suffering from itching & bumps all over my skin & even constant crawling sensations slowly moving across my skin. I successfully saved the sparrow, but now am regretful for even taking the thing home. Mentally, I really have no fear of bugs of any kind. But when it gets to this point I don't know what to do. I even made a concoction of the highest strength cayenne pepper powder mixed with a bunch of Neem & Tea Tree oil after reading about these kind of things killing mites. This ended up being one've the most painful experiences of my life. After rubbing the stuff on from the chin down (of course avoiding my groin area) I felt a mild burning/cold sensation. Then when I proceeded to shower it all off I went through a pain so bad that I nearly went into shock. I felt truly great after the pain was gone but low and behold, later the next day the crawling starts again. It's been nearly a month now & I have taught myself not to itch at all, but still am ending up with strange marks of all kinds on my skin. I just read that some strong white Vinegar may help, so I'm about to douse myself in that & take a shower. Hope this helps... Atleast temporarily. I don't know how long one can go on like this. I am trying my very best to block the crawling sensations out've my mind & trying to pass it off as all mental, but it's still there. Then at night is when the itching Truly becomes intense, I lose sleep over it. I've started drinking to sleep better but then I'll wake up around 2-3AM itchy as ever, using all of my mental power to avoid itching at all. Please, PLEASE. Help! This mite problem needs to be acknowledged as it seems to be spreading VERY fast. If the CDC or someone willing to help in some way doesn't get on this soon, I'm afraid we may have an all out plague-like epidemic on our hands.

Don't worry this******is so contagious soon everybody will have it. I've given up on getting help. I just live my everyday life spreading the shit. You really can't tell from looking at someone they have it. I watch others around me as they start itching and scratching not having a clue what's happening to them, but I know.....................This is so sad :(

I have done everything to get rid of these bugs that I cannot see. I can't sleep at night , I feel things crawling in my head and body but I can't see them. I am almost becoming a mental case. Please help me and help everyone else. This is really frustrating and terribly disruptive of our lives.

These 'invisible bugs' seem to be very powerful. We have been bitten thousands of times. We cannot wash them off our bodies. They are now in my car and in my floor at work. I have lived in my home for 2 months and we noticed he bugs the first week. The exterminator cannot see them, but he can feel them crawling in his legs. No resolution.
