Hi I am a 54 year old women and new to this forum. I hope I find some answers. 2 years ago my head itched, so I went and bought otc lice meds, I spent a fortune. None of them worked despite the 2 hour nit combing with terminator comb on long hair. So I break down and go to my dr of 15 years and tell him what I am there for. He literally flinched and backed up! I told him I need something stronger, he did not touch me or check my head just wrote a script for a 2 oz bottle of malathon. I go home put this ity bity bottle of stinking stuff that barely dampened my hair. It failed. I asked him to give me 2 bottles and refills, he did. I did the same routine, and nit combed for 2 hours after each application. I was shocked to feel these demons crawling on my head still! So then dr gave me Ivermectin in pill form since ins. dont pay for sklice. total failure. I begged him for something else he gave me lindane - this stuff is black label poison. So I used this - and it actually made the problem worse - it pissed the bugs off and I got bitten really badly in my face ears nose face ears Oh God! Long story short - I am now having to see a specialist dermatologist. That was a total waste of time. I am non stop bitten hard every minute of every day leaving damage skin and hair and mental health. These are not lice. they are small black pepper sized some are oblong yellow. They are in everything I own, I cant hide it anymore could it be gnats? flags
