People with "BUGS"

There are people who do get infested with bugs on their skin and hair. There are times that you cannot see the bugs with the naked eye; yet there are times when you can. Theses cases are pretty clear cut because the little culprits that are causing the problems can be seen or caught and looked at under the microscope. Most of the time these cases are contagious by close physical contact, sharing clothes,blankets, furniture, bedding. There are steps to get rid of the little culprits which work well. You or your child will probably have to stay away from school or work depending on the policy.

You have probably heard of people at work or at school that have had this unfortunate situation happen to them. These things can happen to the cleanest family on the block. It should not be a social stigma. IT JUST HAPPENS!
There are tried and true ways to alleviate the problem . IT WILL GO AWAY if treated properly.

Now, there is another kind of ""bugs in and on the skin problem". This kind of problem is where the person feels and sees the bugs crawling and coming out of their skin. If you meet someone that tells you about their problem and wants you to see their bugs, you can say yes or decline the invitation. If you say yes, please be aware that the person showing you his/her bugs REALLY sees these things. YOU may not see them; you WON'T see them, but the person showing you REALLY SEES THEM ON THEIR SKIN!!! They actually "feel" them crawling around under their skin and can see them moving. It is Sooo real to them. This is a psychriatric condition that is treatable. The condition is called "Delusions of Parasitosis"
