Omg you sound jst like me 4 yrs ago. I ended up shaving my head for three years and wearing a wig. I would wear a knee high stocking on my head under the wig. When I took off the stocking and ran hot water over it the stocking could literally swim wildly about the tub and it was clear that little worms expanded by blowing it air and were frantically trying to escape the stocking. My hair is about 3 inches long now but I fight every day to keep from shaving toffee. Did you have any tiny black gnats? I feel that is where mine started. They are in my eyes, skin, nose, mouth. The eyes are really swollen and I have an oothalmologist who said they are parasites. My hair feels like the hat has turned into a worm. I bought some tea tree shampoo at pet smart for dogs and it feels like it works. I use peroxide on my head because peroxide is the only thing that touches them. I have had it 4 years and thus has changed my liife in a horrible way. I used 2 b or. Sometimes I have to pour shampoo or dawn or conditioner real thick on my head with a towel wrapped around my head to make it stop. Vaseline over my head and a plastic bag over your head makes them very active to breathe. It is a nightmare. I tan st the salon because I feel better afterwards. Under the heat my skin and scalp start making popping noises. When I get up there is a lot of white seat that comes out of me. It helps for a day or two.
