I'm not really sure to be honest. I have a spot rash on my hand, and my wife had it on her neck. Our dog had something before we sent her away, about the time Max broke out. I was looking a web page on mites, and it looked alot like what was on my wife's neck (which is all but gone now).
I do think that if you have a lowered immune system, you are an easy mark for parasites... and as you holistically strengthen the body, they tend to leave. so, max has gotten much better without doing anything about parasites... and the rash on my wife was all but gone too. but, my finger really was getting worse, and it really looked like a mite. googling images of mites (scabies) you find pictures that look just like eczema. in fact, a mother on another forum mentioned that her child had eczema and mites.... so, a lot of things were pointing to parasites. plus, max's blood test from several months back showed sky high white blood count... it can be allergies, or even as the docs admitted, parasites. oddly, they just assumed allergies and didn't even explore parasites. i think it was a mistake. i have learned now that even some md's acknowledge that parasites can CAUSE allergies. so all these things together made me think, why not holistically treat for mites and see what happens, just in case.
well a few days on neem oil and max looked even better. my finger rash exploded in anger and is now slowly healing. it really makes me think i am dealing with some mite or parasite. It would not surprise me at all if the parasite was in addition to allergy eczema. there is not rule that you can't have them both.
