After I ate I pulled this out of my mouth. It curled up & has a hook thing on the end. Please let me know if you know its origin/how to treat me (and my father) these come out of our mouthes, nose. We also have white bumps that grow & you can pull fibres or chunks of something…sometimes flat and one end is smaller. I have sores on my face and neck scalp arms legs and chest.

Dear sincerely stressed out and clueless,
We are unable to identify the thing you pulled out of your mouth, but it looks remarkably like a thing someone found on the body while showering.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide you with some information.

    I’ve had the same exact things as well!! I also have lint bugs that I found all over my clothes bedding, everything! I have pulled larvae looking things from my skin, nose and treated my hair when all this started for what I thought was lice and had a larvae come out of my scalp. I have so many bugs saved it’s unreal. I also have tiny black dot “things” that I find everywhere and they burrow into my skin. My food gets contaminated by the blacks dot things and they jump also. I have watched the lint bugs crawl before. I have read do much on it and “morgellons ” pops up a lot. Boy was I scared after reading that! I’m not sure if the back dot looking things are mites or not, but they def feed on me since they burrow in my skin and I have to dog them out. I’m not sure the stages of growth on whatever this stuff is? But it takes over whatever it can get into because I’ve watched stuff in my house that it’s gotten in and it takes the usual shape of curling up like you explained and a rigid like texture to it even if the original surface was smooth. It does it to my snot when I get them out of my nose and ear wax too. I squeeze out larvae too and it’s a horrible feeling knowing they’re in me!! If anyone else knows anything about this please share!

    Carpet beetles and carpet beetle larvae. Vacuumed my moms house with our vacuum and got carpet beetles from her house. They came out if the vacuum. 2 years later we are still battling these killers and their larva. They are in our hair, nose, ears, eyes, skin etc. it’s so overwhelming I too feel they could kill us. I now have 2 broken ankles of unknown cause. And they eat dead carcasses? They are eating us alive!!! They are also in my stool!!! Can anyone help? Doctors do not believe me.

  8. Aimslice says:

    Beetle pupae or shell casing?

  9. Morgellons says:

    I’m in Ohio I also have this issue but also these little dust particulates have like dead bugs attached to them and then they latch onto your skin I think they are nanofibers which connect to each other and to your brain inside your body that’s how they’re doing this hivemind Society and it has to do with gang stalking does anybody else get gang stalked? We are not a part of their upper class from this they can read our minds this is part of MKUltra I believe but these Nano fibers attach to your skin pulling the dead bug into the skin which it like becomes embedded and part of the top layer of skin it’s insane that’s how they manipulate or destroy our DNA and slowly kill us or this is a vessle to also drug us and how they are feeding themselves are we all white? Secret societies Illuminati Etc are behind this I get gang stalked I’m a targeted individual

    It’s Carpet Beetles. We have been dealing with the same things . Called Terminix and paid a fortune for them to treat for bedbugs because I thought someone had brought them into my home . The treatment done no good at all and 10 days later they came back again and the guy said they never saw any signs at all of bed bugs and that he thought I had carpet beetles , which I had never heard of before. He asked if I’d seen any bugs at all and I told him yes two different kinds . A black one with white across the middle of its back and a multi colored one. He said definite carpet beetles and they LOVE the oil in hair and the salt on skin. My fiancé got such a bad rash on both sides of his lower back under arms and on the back of his right knee. It actually got so bad we left and got a hotel room for awhile and let Terminix treat for the fourth time . Stayed out of house two more days then came home and breathed such a sigh of relief and happiness that I finally felt comfortable in my house again. That lasted twelve days . They started again day before yesterday. I searched and searched for a nest and found them between the counter top and wall, all along the bottom trim of the fridge, behind the back splash all along two kitchen walls and under the trim on the bottom floor cabinets. The nest is disgusting . Slimy and gross. Terminix is coming back for the 5th time this coming Monday. IF it doesn’t do any better than it did this time we are moving because I cannot live life this way. Home doesn’t have that secure safe and comforting feeling anymore . It’s more like a nightmare. I’ve tried everything to get rid of them . Exterminator . Every type of bug killer sold in stores. NOTHING HELPS . The fourth time the big guy came out was the ONLY time there was any relief at all and that lasted only about twelve days . That’s all it takes for new ones. 7-12 days and the problem starts all freaking over again. They get in your mouth by being on your face or your hair and omg when that happens your tongue swells slightly and gets real red and you can clearly see the welts it caused by being on the tongue. They make the sides of the nose red and raw because they like it there because of facial hair there . Lips on both sides get the same way. Brand new couch only 7 months old is slowly being absolutely destroyed and I refuse to even set on it anymore. You can wash your clothes but doesn’t much good because the larvae will for sure find a way to get to it so I wash what I’m wearing that day in the hottest water possible then dry them twice on high. They LOVE lint so around the dryer or where ever lint can get they will be. The worst thing is if you have pets because they fear on cats and dogs. Our cat was losing his hair in gobs. Found out from Terminix that the worst thing I could do is let my cat back in the house. They fly,jump and when you frighten them or make them feel threatened they will freeze. They will pull their legs in to hide them and that just makes them even harder to see. I honestly would rather have bed bugs because they are easier to get rid of. Hope your moms feels better soon. Love and miss you all

      Hey Alicia, I was wondering since it’s been almost a year since you’ve posted this if you’re still dealing with this problem? You stated that terminex was coming in for the 5th time now but treating for carpet beetles? I was wondering if this worked and you are free from this nuisance? Thanks for all the info ! -Tracy

  11. Aimslice says:

    Aha! Thank you for that information Alicia!

    I too am dealing with same issues. Dr’s think were nuts. I have pics from each place I’ve been because those black or white shaped things are EVERYWHERE I’ve been researching hard every day for the last year or longer. Went to hospital back in 2013 for possible worms. They said I didnt have. Since then I’ve been to the hospital at least twice a yr. Tired of it. White lint ball are cotton parasites. I believe we all have tapeworm and mabye a few others.

  13. Tigerlilly says:

    Bathe nightly in watm bath with 3 cups of baking soda. Soak for 30 minutes. Submerge scalp for 5 minutes. Rinse off and dry off then Use 2 tbs baking soda in 12 oz water bottle and pour onto hair. Let dry. Dont rinse out. The itching will subside and the parasites will leave your body and scalp.

    If I am out of line in what I am about to say, I truly sincerely apologize. Let me state up front that I have experienced neither Lyme disease nor a full-blown Carpet Beetle infestation. But I am dealing with the presence of carpet beetles in my home, and I have experienced some of what many on here are describing. And I am here to tell you: I am worried about you.
    When I read the original post, and the moderator opted to bunt it to the community, I assumed that there’d be a few jokes, and maybe, hopefully, at least one person would read the signs and call him out. At least one kind person more or less did make good on the latter, advising the poster to focus on getting the Lyme disease diagnosis under control.
    But.. scrolling though most of the other comments was an acutely painful reminder of a very, very dark, self-destructive period in my life. I’m admittedly really uncertain in several cases if the commenter was over-the-top playing it up or was being completely honest, and tonight is actually my first time ever on this site so there’s quite probably a certain repartee to which I’m completely ignorant and, joke’s on me, righteously commenting in earnest will be pure cringe. But, meh, I’ll take the chance. I’m 4 years late to the party anyway, so maybe no one will even read this. 😛
    Each new litany of mystifying, horrifying ailments caused me to physically wince. Like I said, some of them couldn’t possibly be true, but others, the frenetic length at which they detailed their ordeal hit way too close to home for me. You see, several years ago, i was having the same experience — biting lint bugs that would fly at my face, pulling fibers out of my skin, white nodules in my poop, i was convinced that my nose had gone crooked in my sleep, and more, and all while certain that my house was so massively infested with wood eating insects that even my kitchen utensils were damaged. I never tried talking to a doctor about it but I unfortunately do know the utter helplessness and frustration that comes with needing help so badly and the person who is supposed to help you just can’t. Or won’t.
    But I’m not posting today to commiserate. I had to write this diatribe after reading the thread because I’m here to tell you that what you are describing is psychosis.
    Don’t let that word freak you out; it’s a medical term, not a judgment. And once you understand that that is what you’re actually experiencing, you will have incredible agency to escape the nightmare. You’ll have options. There are people who can help you.
    But just forget about the P word for now.
    My truth is that during that period of my life, it mainly revolved around abusing significant amounts of Adderall. Every month, I would binge on it until I ran out. At least five but upwards of eight days straight. And I wouldn’t sleep. At all. Every month, almost an entire week of stimulant-fueled insomnia. After a couple of years of that monthly habit, one begins to experience what is referred to in the side effects literature as ‘drug-induced psychosis’. And it was in that state that these ideas formed. I kept inexplicably feeling like something was biting me, and there was lint everywhere.. I was positive I saw it move toward me. There’s probably bugs inside the lint. And so I would spend a few hours dissecting all the lint I could find. I never found any bugs but I still just knew the lint was trying to get me.. it jumped at me(!), and I was so sure that it was multiplying. Gradually, when high and sleepless, my reality was more of these horrific deductions that couldn’t be proven but I clung to all the same. It was like I couldn’t help but think that way.. but only until after I crashed. Sober, these ideas never even occurred to me.
    My point is that I eventually realized that it wasn’t me having those thoughts, that fixation, the horror. It was because I was in a psychotic state, a perfect storm brought on by drugs and no sleep.
    I’m sorry it took me so long to get here, but I am ultimately here to tell you this: I’m not saying that you are a speedfreak like I was (unless you are, in which case, recap: it’s not you (nor the lint); it’s the drugs), maybe you’re not sleeping well, you work too much, you’re overwhelmed with family responsibilities, or you’re just deeply, fundamentally unhappy with your life right now. Or maybe you haven’t yet discovered that you’re actially bipolar, and you’re having a manic episode. I’m saying that this is about your Mental Health, before everything else. You are not crazy but you are in crisis. Please talk to someone.

    After reading the last comment, I’d like to respond. So, now that your sober your saying each one of these persons that are dealing with some possible parasite/ fungus, you believe them all to be speedheads that are unhappy with their lives, and nothing better to do but obsess over something that’s nothing, not there? Have you thought that maybe because you were speeding, to justify it you need to believe everyone’s doing it? And by your comment not just them, but the people who’ve been around them, and their pets, maybe you took away one obssetion to now obsess over the thought that anyone that’s got skin issues is on crack. Sounds like you substituted harsh assessment for your sobriety. I’m just saying, you know that saying ” when you assume” Do you realize how many parasites affect humanity in this world, today? That it’s more common than you’d like to think, and that people die everyday from cause, effect from a parasites around the world. And that as much as I know about dealing with someone who’s on drugs to the delusional point, I don’t believe your input on something believed to be true or their own manifestation would make a warm and sincere offering of constructive addvise if someone is using in the first place, just saying in my opinion. It was my intention to try and be helpful to the many that are dealing with something attacking their skin, and wanted to suggest looking up tiny black house fly, and it’s parasite life cycle, there’s an antibiotic along with ivermectin or prytel( something like those) to use at same time that could be a answer to a life ruining parasite that’s so elusive it could be years before complications will start showing up and really making life horrible. My best wishes Diane ❤️
