You hit the nail on the head, it sure does take over you dominate thoughts. It brings new meanning to OCD. I am for the time being, hopefully forever past the biteing and itching stage of this demon. I no longer have cocoons coming out of my skin and I havn't seen any spider web things lately. I still have black specks, things that are like grains of salt, last week I went through pimples on my chin that felt like they were full of chards of glass, thank goodness that's gone. I still have radom fibers that look like hairs, but they're not.
Here are some things that have helped me. Lots and lots of water, hydration is really important when it comes to this stuff. Check out the Water Cure . Make sure your salt intake is good. I use alot of Seasalt . Vitamin C, I've taken 10 to 20 grams a day, maybe more. Maybe start with 5 or 10 grams and work your way up. I've made myself detox too fast and it was awful. You might want to avoid that. Extra vitimin A, E, and also I think MSM has helped me, but you can detox too fast with that as well. Drink pure cranberry juice, you can dilute it with water, but if you can stand to drink it straight do it as it seems to have more power. I started oil pulling awhile back and that is helping check out that forum. B vitimins might help with your energy level. One thing that pulled me from the brink of death was liver support. I took liver caps made by a local herb lady, they consisted of Oregon grape root, milk thistle, dandelion root, wild yam and licorice root. Last but not least Zinc and magnesium. You might try taking arnica, that makes me sleep. Goldenseal is another, I drank the tea and used the teabags on my sores. Slightly damp goldenseal teabag on the sore covered in plastic wrap left on several hours will draw the infection out. I already mentioned cayenne in another post.
Now for the outside. If you can get to the ocean, go. A few hours in sea water works wonders for this stuff. The seawater really draws it out of your body, that has been one of the best things for me. Salt scrubs, epsoms salt are good. Gentain voilet stop the itching, but leaves you purple. still veryuseful when all else fails. You can soap up and put it on the suds, scrub and rinse it off, that helps and doesn't stain you, maybe a little bit where the infection is bad. It wears off in time no matter what. The best anti itch product in the world Shuttle lotion, can be found at http://www.shuttlelotion.com/.
I also use a beonite clay mix with applecider vinegar made into a paste, really pulls the stuff out and relieves itching. That's at http://www.aztec-secret.com/.
As for antibotics I've had alot of them, they have not work and at times have made me alot worse. So maybe we are better off with out them. Personally I think they are what morphed this into a hard to kill demon.
I'm sleeping better, at least this week, I have to make an effort though.
