Thanks to all for your wonderful advice. Some of your suggestions I have tried and some not, but will try them all.
My biggest problem right now is the rate that these parasites reproduce. There is a "core" infection in my face (right next to the fold in my nostril) where many eggs were laid. I have discovered that Lavoris Cinnamon mouthwash applied to the face, neck and chest will reveal where the eggs (larvae?) are located. Also, hydrogen peroxide will reveal the location of the eggs on my face.
I am currently on high dose penicillin to kill off infection.
I suspect there may be many more eggs laid just under my scalp. I have long thick hair, and it is very hard to get medicated shampoo, etc. on my scalp.
The best "cure" so far is (get ready to laugh) chewing tobacco. As a female non-smoker, it was disgusting but it killed off some worms. It just about killed me too in the process. I swallowed the tobacco and had a violent reaction .. my BP shot up, pulse racing, heart palpitations, etc. Thought I might die, but after a couple of hours it subsided. There were raised red welts on my back where I guess these monsters died.
Germ-X has also offered some relief. I apply some to my skin whenever I feel them crawling around.
I'm really not sure that I have either moth fly or bot fly. Four labs agreed that it was an anthropod, but none could agree as to the type. Vasoline and tape have so far not produced a "worm" that could be extracted.
In the meantime, it's a 24/7 battle to keep the amount of eggs eliminated from my skin. I take about 10 baths a day. In between, I apply Germ-X (or vaseline) to my skin and rub the eggs and insects out. At times there are very few and others there are thousands. Many eggs, larvae and adults (look like fleas) also float out of my body whenever I take a hot bath.
Whenever I mow the lawn, I usually get sick and weak. A hot bath then extracts many of these insects from my body. Unfortunately, the ones that are still alive run to my face and scalp where I have a harder time eliminating them.
I wonder if a steam bath might push them to the surface?
Sometimes I think I will not survive this ordeal. My will power and resolve are running pretty low.
Again, thanks to all for your great suggestions. If you have any other ideas, I would surely appreciate hearing from you.
