What's Biting Me?

I have bugs that keep on biting me. I've had this problem for a year and I can't get rid of them! You can't see them unless you look closely. They're white and oval shaped with no visible legs. They are kind of hard, but can be squished.


They bite like bed bugs, but they bite during the day, too. They bite on my feet, arms, back, private area, scalp, and most annoyingly my face. I can feel them bite, too. The bites end up looking like zits.

I shower twice a day and they still keep coming back. I'm afraid I'm spreading them everywhere (furniture, people, my house, clothes).

Someone please help! What is biting me?

They sound like mites, or lice, of some sort. Can you post a picture?

If you can't see them but can kill them, get one and enclose it inside a folded piece of scotch tape. Don't squash it, just seal it and it will of course die. Then, try and get it to a place where you can see it upclose. If it has any resemblance to a lice, it could be the dreaded "body lice" or crabs.


Then, you simply google what it is and how to get rid of it. Good luck, and yes, stay away from others till you find out what it is.

The problem isn't just what's biting you but that you and your house is full. My kids brought lice home from school and it is no easy process to rid the home and clothes of them and you at the same time. If you have pets they will have to be treated too. I don't know what part of the country you are from but if you get Tat sprayers (foggers) open all the closets cabinets and so forth drawers and put pets outside and you too. For the pet, get Advantagell as it kills mites too. It is a once a month flea, lice, mite treatment for dogs and cats. After a couple of hours go back inside, open up the house and take a shower and wash your clothes in vinegar and soap water and dry in very warm dryer.


The pillows and such will have to be dried in a hot dryer or washed and after the first time I usually sprayed with raid or any good flying insect spray like Tat. (Tat is cheapest) I hope this is not what you have but it isn't just you that gets it rich and poor alike end up some time in their life with something they don't like and didn't want.

My children picked lice up from an Indian headress that they all tried on at a museum field trip. After I treated the kids' hair and the pets, I vacuumed all the rooms, all upholstered items and the beds including the frames. My doctor said not to use flea spray, it was a waste of money. He told me to tie the bed pillows and throw cushions into large, heavy trash bags (double bag) as well as stuffed animals and put them in the garage for 48 hours to kill any lice and the nits.


You can throw them in the dryer afterwards to pull out the dead bugs. And I used bug bombs that were for fleas after I vacuumed and then did the bombing again in ten days.

You could also call the places that exterminate bed bugs and see it their treatment kills other insects as they superheat the rooms. That would be a bit easier on you if it will work.

Good luck!

I have been dealing with this for 4 years. I have been to several Dr's, clinics, even emergency rooms. 1st they said it was scabies. But the poison cream didn't work. They started saying I was delusional and once that is in the computer or your medical records every doctor you go to or at least I went to already had that in there minds! When this first started I was working cleaning up crime scene and hording houses. I stayed on with a nice lady that had lost her husband and ask for my help. Her sister n law called me and hired me sight unseen. I had only met both of them over the phone. She had a penthouse apartment overlooking the ocean from her balcony that she had never been out on and they had tapped the windows shut and couldnt even get to or open blinds that fell apart when I did get to them and had to pry open doors and windows. It was very sad! This lady had fallen and broken her leg because of so much junk with an S! In her house. I threw out as much as I could before she came home from hospital and stopped me. She had stacked to the ceiling box's and boxes of cheap mail order stuff, mail, books, paperwork, trash, bags and bags of alcohol, bleach, hundreds! Paper towels, toilet paper. Like more then you could use in 20 years maybe longer! Just cases of expired can goods that could have fed so many hungry people. The carpet was BAD and dead bugs in the furniture when I unzipped the coverings, holly crap! I won't even start with the refrigerator! Hundreds of Glad wrap, bags of every size, foil, parchment paper, etc, etc.


Medical stuff even things on microscope glass slides with things on them that her husband brought home from the the hospital were he was a doctor. Who knows what was on them! I know he had hundreds of books half of them of different diseases. I remember getting a little bite on my arm that itched so bad, and then another, and another! They hurt when they bit and itched like crazy! Then my legs which turned into sores that would not heal. I have not gone anywhere in 4 years without long pants even in 90 degree weather! They didn't bother her but after a few months she went back to hospital and I cleared her apartment of everything. Carpet, drapes, windows, vinyl floor beds furniture, I mean empty. Got all new stuff. It looked beautiful of course when she came home her snide comment was it looks like something out of a magazine. Not a complement she said it was cold and uncomfortable! Anyways that's how she was! She told me one night that her husband started itching and would scratch his legs until they were raw and bleeding! Wow nice to know! He started falling and when he was taken to hospital his spin was turning into dust and he died never knowing what was wrong with him! Fantastic right! What in the? I don't work for her any longer but did for 3 years! So much more you just wouldn't believe the craziness! I know I'm rambling but it is crazy and reads like a armature horror novel! I have to finish later but it gets better, or worse I should say!

To be continued.... for now, peace love, and always keep it real!
