Two weeks ago this problem started for me. I thought the trigger was contact with dust mites while cleaning a very dusty cabinet. I have always been very allergic to dust. The itching started on my back, along my bra-line. The second day of itching I noticed a new welt on my hip and took a close look. I saw a dot that seemed to be a scab, but I couldn't scratch it off! I got the tweezers and pulled it off. I looked at it close and saw legs! We pulled out the old school microscope and sure enough, it was a dust mite. Could these things have gotten into my blood stream or laid eggs under my skin? I've read that they don't attached themselves to humans....but they DO! I think my body is loaded with high levels of histamine because of this infestation. Could these creepy crawlies be the cause to all of this suffering?View Thread
