My symptoms included the following:

  1. maui_3_sea_skinmiteThere was the feeling of something crawling on me, but I could not see anything. Turned out this was a Hexapod called Collembola or Springtail which the vector control of my local health department confirmed from a sample I sent in.
  2. There was pin pricking, which felt like biting, and it felt like I was being eaten. I believe this pin pricking sensation was caused by a genetically crossed fungus/virus breaking through the skin. This phenomenon looked like pieces of lint, but under a microscope, it looked like fibers growing in a specific pattern. The infection was not contracted from spores in the air but physical contact. The fungus was spread by the Collembola that was crawling on it to feed. The fungus is a gourmet super food for the Collembola that would normally never be attracted to a person's skin or found in a house.
  3. There was a burning itch from the fungus and nothing I tried made it stop.
  4. It felt like something was lightly brushing against my skin like a feather. I believe this was the fungus spreading under the skin.
  5. There was a tightening and tingling feeling in an area of activity. I believe this was caused by the fungus spreading internally through nerves under the skin.
  6. Symptoms become more active with the combination of heat and moisture and where clothing was tight against my skin. Turns out both fungus and Collembola flourish in these conditions.
  7. Symptoms became worse while eating or handling food. I believe the fungus was excited and reacting to changes in blood chemistry and an alkaline surge of the PH of the body.
  8. My symptoms got worse and were apparently escalated by electromagnetic energy from the computer or TV.
  9. The fungus got into fabric and leather and the infected clothing or shoes re-infected me. (IE Clothing, towels, linens, mattresses, purses, backpacks, seat belts, car seats, shoes boots, slippers)
  10. maui_1_sea_skinmiteThe fungus also infected paper, and I was re-infected by some of my files I had to handle every day.
  11. The fungus infected my hair follicles, spread in the environment and then from the environment re-infected my body. This cycle is what made it nearly impossible to eradicate.
  12. It liked an alkaline body chemistry, which usually means healthy people.  It affected more females, babies and young children than males, other than men over 50.  A local pest control company told us that in the two other cases of this they had seen only the infants affected in a house full of other residents were infected. I now think it is related to skin type not hormonal.
  13. There was activity in the bed and during the first rising light of dawn; a crawling sensation was always experienced. Probably caused by Collembola coming to feed on the fungus coming out of the skin.
  14. There appeared to be different types of what looked like bites on my skin. The ones where we felt the initial prick showed nothing on the surface, but I now believe this is the most contagious phase as it is when the fungus breaks through the skin to spread just like herpes virus does.  I now strongly believe that this GMO plague behaves like a fungus on the skin surface and virus once it gets into the nervous system.  This is why no antifungal medications taken internally have worked.
  15. The beginning symptom just looked like mosquito bites and went away overnight with modest treatment. The ones that looked like a white head festered and did not heal. These were most likely a more advanced stage of the skin infection. These became active with heat and moisture and had an intense burning itch. No amount of even the strongest treatment (prescription Elimite, 5% Pyrethrum creams, enzymes, Internet remedies, Ivermectin, straight bleach, tee tree and other essential oils, boric acid, hydrogen peroxide, etc. (See list of What Did Not Work in TREATMENTS) seemed to affect these or stop the intense itching. (Until we tried the non-toxic skin products we discovered (see TREATMENTS: What Works). These "pimple" like bumps would sometime recess into the skin when we managed to dry them up and then re-activate and flare up with heat and moisture, sometimes weeks or months later. They would dry up, but a bump would remain under the skin as if the fungus had somehow encysted into the skin. Because this was a fungus infection and bugs are only temporarily present to feed, no bugs showed up in any scrapings or biopsies.
  16. The Collembola, which can jump, and are supposedly the fastest moving of all life forms seem to disappear into thin air because our vision is too slow to follow them. The insect is quite easy to eliminate with a saturating fogging product I found (see Fogging Products under PRODUCTS). It is the fungus that is nearly impossible to eliminate.
  17. I finally realized that my environment was re-infecting me and that the bug was not living in my skin or body. I began trying to deal with disinfecting everything. I knew a woman that was boiling her clothes and still having problems, so I knew hot temperature did not affect. Freezing and microwaving did not work either. No laundry products, poisons; boric acid, borax, vinegar, enzymes, or powders affected the fungus in our clothes. The washer and a hot dryer did not affect the fungus either. We tried towels in the dryer at maximum heat for hours, and they still gave us fungus symptoms!
  18. I know now beyond a doubt that the patented fogging products do kill the Collembola and seem to purify the air. We were somewhat helped by a $2,000 commercial steamer we bought, but it did not eradicate the problem. Looking back, I realized that the moist heat at the fringes of what was treated only made the problem worse. Only the fogging products worked for us to finally get rid of it in the environment.

This Condition Is Real

rainbow_skinmiteTo all who are suffering from what they think is human skin parasites, skin mites, Collembola, or have symptoms like scabies, but nothing works it is my sincerest wish that what worked for me will help you.

If doctors have blown you off and told you that you have Delusional Parasitosis because they are too lazy or don’t care enough to learn the truth my hope is this protocol will help you like it helped me and my family. Most likely if you think you have some kind of scabies or bird mites or skin mites that won't go away with normal treatments, it could be a genetically modified skin fungus attracting a microscopic bug called Collembola that eats this superfood fungus infecting your skin. To this date, it has been almost impossible to detect because everyone is looking for a biting, stinging bug. After 11 years of consulting with thousands of victims, no bugs have been found under the skin by any doctors on anyone I’ve spoken with. That is because it is FUNGUS causing all but the crawling sensations. The Collembola has no apparatus to bite or sting. It is not a new kind of Collembola because many (including myself) have had specimens identified who had biting and stinging sensations and none of the bugs they caught had any apparatus to bit or sting only chew.

I suggest you read the entire site so you will understand that what you think will work won’t because I already tried it or have heard that someone else has (from over 1,000 victims I have personally spoken with at this point) and then go back and do what I did.


About Collembola


As seen with a 40x s microscope the adults are white, or flesh color, hairy and have legs and a whip on their underside that allows them to jump farther than fleas. They seemed to mostly inhabit our floor. We are not sure why, but they need to be treated as if they are airborne maybe because they are so small if they jump they can be airborne. Their size and huge numbers necessitate a total saturation of the environment to wipe them out.

The fungus (which we still do not know exactly what kind it is) is somehow only infecting certain people. Based on the data from survey questions that my local health department helped me formulate, 80% of the cases are women of all ages. Next is babies and young children and men over 50. Young men are rare. After years of studying, I now believe that the fungus starts the problem and is spreading physical contact with infected people, clothing or things. The Collembola is attracted and then also gets infected and then spreads the fungus.

The fungus on the skin attracts the Collembola as well as other fungus loving insects like fungus flies whose natural role in nature is to eat decaying leaves and fungus. I believe this is why multiple symptoms occur.

In my case, I never identified a parasite that was biting me. We had scrapings and biopsies that showed nothing. The doctors were not looking for a fungus on the skin so of course, they did not test for that if there even was a test. The fungus fibers were so small they appear to be lint even with a 10-x magnifying glass. See Gallery for pictures I took with a $500 microscope and camera of what I carefully took off my skin using a 10 x lighted mirror and tape or surgical tweezers.

If I had not studied closely and compared a few to each other under a microscope (40 x), I would have dismissed them as lint. I saw that the specimens all had the same shape and structure. I was able to kill the Collembola by fogging and the fungus by using a special tincture and smothering and suffocating them on my skin by using Cotz SPF 58 sunscreen. The Cat's Claw tincture was critical for me in killing the fungus on my skin as well as stopping the itching.

See more details of what I did under WHAT WORKS

 How to get a specimen of what is crawling on you

This is the very first thing I suggest you do to make sure it is not something else in your environment

  • Get clear packing tape and a 10X Magnifying glass
  • Place the tape (sticky side down) about 5-inches above the floor
  • If you don't want to hold it (since it may take hours), use a couple of jars on either side to hold the tape. You are the bait, so if you sit there, you can attract them faster.
  • Place it in an area of most activity during the time of day most activity is happening
  • After a few hours, secure the tape (sticky side down) over a clear jar mouth to protect it
  • Place the jar over light and study it with the magnifying glass to see if you got anything. Circle it (or them) with a pen. Keep trying until you get something.
  • Transfer tape (sticky side down) to a small Tupperware or jar and place a lid over it to send to the vector control in your local health department for identification. They do not charge for this.
  • By identifying what is in your environment, you will be helping yourself and others to bring awareness to this plague. You can also prove to family and doctors that you are not delusional.

Megan's Nightmare

Megan's Nightmare

In 2006, my daughter, boyfriend and I contracted a medically undiagnosed skin infection that would nearly destroy our lives.After great persistence and much research, we would later learn that our common, nightmarish symptoms were caused by a genetically modified plant fungus crossed with a virus that infected our hair follicles and nervous system and attracted a microscopic insect, Collembola, to our skin. I believe it may have started with my daughter who one day she showed me a rash she had on her upper back. It looked like a combination of mosquito bites and pimples with white centers. Being a preventative health consultant for over 40 years, I ruled out her healthy diet as the cause and suspected that it might be something in her environment. As her rash didn’t itch or bother her at the time, neither of us were all that concerned about it. Then about a month later, my daughter came to my house to help me and my boyfriend rip up some old carpeting. It was hot that day, and the three of us were sweating from the work. We took a break together on my sofa and soon afterward my boyfriend, and I were both itchy in almost the exact same spot where our upper backs had pressed against the sofa where she also had sat. Within days my boyfriend and I were in hell with a burning itch and sensations of biting and crawling on our skin. Though we believe my daughter contracted the fungus first, she would not experience these symptoms until months later. Now looking back, we suspect that my daughter was first exposed to the fungus months before when she and her boyfriend moved houses. We learned that the prior tenant had a serious skin condition and must have somehow infected the house. Though my daughter contracted the fungus and suffered all the symptoms, her boyfriend did not, which is evidence that not everyone is susceptible. As our symptoms became worse and our lives a living hell, we sought the help of multiple doctors and specialists. In the end, no one had an explanation for what caused our suffering or why the three of us had had the same symptoms. We tried numerous medications, but nothing worked (See what “Doesn’t Work”). The doctors we consulted sent skin scrapings and biopsies for testing, but nothing showed up. They did not test for a fungus on the skin, and even if they had, did a test even exist for what we had? Much later, with a powerful microscope, we would discover the fibrous strands of the infecting fungus. Eventually, we accepted the grim fact that if there was a way out of the hell, it was up to us to find it. I couldn’t work as I was suffering so much and was afraid of spreading whatever I had to others. Researching possible cures, explanations and solutions became my full-time job. Being on my computer was particularly agonizing because my symptoms became worse and I felt like something was attacking me. Burning incense or candles kept whatever it was away until they burnt out. It was clear that this "thing" did not like strong smells and involved a bug since all insects avoid smoke and fire. I was determined to find out what was biting and crawling on us. I created my own traps using clear packing tape and sent multiple samples to the Hawaii State Health Department.The lab positively identified the samples as Collembola, a common microscopic insect. The technicians were surprised that I had collected the samples from inside my house. Collembola, they said, are rarely found in clean environments, are not parasitic and rarely ever bother humans. They explained that these insects are attracted to and feed upon decaying organic matter like leaves and fungus and that they lack the physical anatomy to “bite.” Though discovering the Collembola didn’t explain what was “biting” us, it was nevertheless progress and would lead me in the right direction. We studied Collembola and bought a special microscope to view our samples. We learned that these insects are incredibly prolific, are more resilient than cockroaches and can be found in the harshest of environments such as the Arctic and active volcanic lava tubes. That was bad news as it explained why extreme temperature changes didn’t kill them off.My boyfriend and I tried everything we could get our hands on since we could not live with the torture. If you think of something, I have more than likely tried it in the 2 ½ years of this nightmare. In all, we spent over $15,000, but nothing worked. We tried different pest control companies and all conceivable types of fumigation sprays, powders and steamers. Some companies told us that nothing worked for this kind of problem. One company told me that they had run across it in two other homes. In one house, just the babies were being attacked and in the other, just one out of a family of five were affected.In 2008, I created a website to share my story and warn others about this condition. I hoped that I could save fellow sufferers from wasting their time and money on all the things that I tried that did nothing but hurt my immune system. Soon after, someone read my site and contacted me to tell me about CeadarCide, the manufacturer of two products that would prove a critical part of clearing Collembola and fungus from one’s environment. At this point, I started to believe that this condition was a deviation from the natural order of life. Why would Collembola, an insect that is attracted to fungi and decaying matter and helps break down human corpses, attack a living person? It was baffling. Was this condition the accidental byproduct of genetic modification gone wrong? Or worse, was it created for darker purposes? Some of my suspicions were affirmed when I read that CedarCide had been created for the military’s use in killing pesticide resistant mites in the Middle East. Later, after collecting hundreds of surveys and after speaking with thousands, I learned that healthier people with clean internal systems are more susceptible than people who live on red meat and junk food. That this attacks healthy people is highly strange since diseases in nature usually prune out the weakest members of a species. I also know that females and older men are more prone to get this. To date, very few young men have ever contacted me. I believe if a person is susceptible, that once exposed they will contract the fungus and eventually attract the fungus loving insects to their skin, thereby worsening their condition. I also know that a strong immune system is critical to getting over this. See my book Don't Pollute Your Own Stream re-published under You're Not Fat You're Swollen on Amazon. It will teach you how to build a healthy and strong immune system to help fight this. There is a happy ending to this story! After 2-1/2 years of suffering and tireless experimentation on myself at great expense, I finally developed the protocol on this site that lead to my full recovery and way out of hell. My daughter and boyfriend were also cleared and have been well ever since. I now have a normal life. Never did I think there would be so much joy in simple things like using the same towel and sheets for a week. I even wear the same clothes for days on end just to celebrate that I can do that. When my toddler granddaughter stayed at my house for 10-days, I was so grateful that she was not in any danger of getting the plague I had suffered with for so long. To take hot bubble baths with her and cuddle her in my arms was something I could not imagine during my struggle. I am in gratitude even being able to type this letter unmolested by any irritating menace since it had been excruciating to be at my computer for all those years of torture. The turning point came at a time when I had reached the limit. I could no longer go on suffering. I am strong of spirit, but I had been worn down to the degree that I wanted to end my life. I was sleeping naked in the bathtub with no blankets or pillow trying to get some sleep and burning my skin with a magnifying glass in the sun during the day trying to get some relief from the burning itch. I bargained with God that if I was cured, I promised to help others overcome this nightmare as well. My prayer was answered. Shortly after, I was in Wal-Mart when a woman I had known 20 years earlier walked up to me out of the blue and told me that Cats Claw was good for skin infections. I was completely covered with clothing from head to toe so how she would know I had any skin problem was a mystery. Then another person I had just met gave me the body wash to try saying my skin looked damaged so maybe this mild soap would help. These and the cedar products for the environment turned out to be what saved my life. My prayer is that you, who by the grace of God have found me, will follow the protocol I have sacrificed so much of my life energy to create and lead yourself back into a peaceful life as well. Once out of harm's way, I hope you too will care enough to contribute in some way to helping those still out there suffering from this nightmare. Until we are all free from this, we must reach out to those still in need. If we do not reach back then, did we deserve the help we received? If I did not try to help others after I was safe, did I deserve the help that came from sincere prayers to God for help to heal this in myself and others? The answer is why I am still here doing this…. Peace to You,Megan

How long will it take for me to get over this? What I have witnessed is that protocol works like mathematics but how thoroughly you do the required steps is a huge factor. It also depends on how long you and your environment have been infected without doing anything that works to stop it. The reinfection part of this is the biggest factor. The longer you have been suffering, the more there is in your environment to reinfect you. You could get over this in a week if you have just had symptoms for a week. If you have had symptoms for months, then you could still get over this in a week or two IF you are not reinfected by something you are still living with IE person, upholstery, car, etc. If you take time off work and concentrate your efforts and treat EVERY time you feel a symptom immediately, you will get clear faster. Doing the protocol halfway means it may take months to get clear since everytime you feel a symptom and do not treat the fungus is progressing. What is the difference between this and skin mites? Skin mites live under the skin, and the mites in this condition are foragers and only come to feed on fungus on the surface of the skin. No skin mites ever showed up in my scrapings or biopsies, nor for anyone else, in the last 11 years, I have been consulting on this. *There have been many scrapies that show positive for an “unidentifiable” fungus. Skin mites are easy to get rid of with standard treatments. Scabies infects the creases of the body and this fungus condition predominately over larger areas like back, chest, arms, etc. Even bird mites and their bites are easy to treat. Most people, including myself, treated for bird mite bites and then scabies as a first attempt which of course does not work. What is sad is that all creams prescribed for those conditions make the fungus worse even if symptoms are subdued for a short while. For myself and most people, the bugs end up crawling into the eyes, ears, and other orifices but not to live; they are just after the fungus that consistently infects the edge of mucous membranes. Both the fungus and the Collembola seek moisture, so the bugs crawl further into orifices attracted to the moisture there but not to live or reproduce. What is the difference between the bug symptoms and the fungus symptoms? Bugs do not land and never move again. It is assumed they burrowed into the skin, but this is not what the sensation of something landing on me was. As it turned out, it was my own hairs moving and touching due to inflammation of the hair follicles; something I never felt before. The only true bug symptom is something crawling from point A to point B across your skin. Everything else turned out to be a fungus symptom, IE pinpricking, biting, stinging, tickling, something landing and not moving, tingling, feather brushing, and burning itch. Do my pets get infected, spread or carry this? This is a question on the data surveys and intakes I have been collecting for the last 12 years, and I would have to say no correlation from the 1,000’s of answers I have received. From the research of these surveys, the fungus does not infect the pets probably due to the difference of their body chemistry. I do believe the pets are bothered if there are large numbers of Collembola bugs in the house but the Collembola are not after the pet since the bug is not a parasite they are only fungus loving insects after the fungus which so far does not infect pets. Why don’t others I live with feel anything? Only those with certain body chemistry are vulnerable to the fungus infecting their skin, so the bugs are not on them. Predominately those who are susceptible are all females, next in line are babies and children and then men over 50. Cases of young men between the age of 19-40 are almost non-existent. Is this contagious? YES, it is VERY contagious! From what I have witnessed from my own and everyone else's stories, it is spread through skin to skin contact and infected upholstery, clothing, and linens. What started in California, Texas, and Florida is now in almost every state in the US. I have now consulted with countries all over Europe and Asia. England, Ireland, India, Canada, Australia, Japan, just to name a few. It is what the infected person has been “intimate” with that is likely now infected. Unless this is on your hands, not everything you have touched is infected but what you have sat or laid on or worn most likely is. Is there a doctor I can see? Unfortunately no. I have written hundreds of letters even to doctors specializing in GMO caused illnesses. I saw nine doctors myself with no help. No one so far has helped anyone that I know of and nothing anyone has been prescribed internally or topically has worked. I was told that in most cases what was prescribed made the person worse by either weakening their immune system or proliferating the fungus with cream. One specialist told me that I knew the most about this condition; not the answer I was looking for when I was still suffering looking for help. Does a mite mattress cover work? NO, a fungus can pass right through this. Does an air purifier work? NO, this is not an airborne infestation Does tenting my house work? NO, this is a question on my intakes. No pest control company treatments have been effective. Why do I feel bugs everywhere I go? Collembola is one of the most common and prolific fungi and mold loving insects in the world. Found in every pile of decaying leaves and also anywhere where a water leak in a structure has caused mold. You would never know these bugs are there in your yard or structure because they are only after a fungus, not humans. They are not a parasite; only a fungus foraging insect with no apparatus to bite or sting. This is the first time in the history of the human race that fungus loving bugs (which can also include fungus flies) have been attracted to a person with a fungus infection. Jocky itch, athletes foot, wring worm, yeast infection, etc have NEVER attracted fungus loving insects although they are all fungus infections. That is why I firmly believe this is a genetically modified fungus.
