Here are some of the photos of the things coming from my scalp scratch offs, I have had these for almost 3 years, they really burn and sometimes bleed quite a bit after scraping tem off....doctors I have seen seem to think it is shingles, but I don't think so, nothing seems to cure them and OTC products help relieve the itching and burning but nothing gets rid of them...tried many things, not sure if it is some type of parasitic infection or what...have many many photos of these things under a microscope, and have seen them moving. Hope you can tell me what they are , thanks , XXXXXXX
