Scalp itching, crawling bugs, white and black worms under scalp. Help?

I am not crazy...yet. Have had scalp itching, crawling bugs and now white then black worms I see the worms under my scalp, have pulled them out, and up until two days ago resorted to using the vacuum suction hose. Some are long thin white, fat white, thin black, long, short, rice looking half circles, alone and in a cluster. Dermatologist reluctantly prescribed stromecterol 3 wks agos, took three pills, told to never speak of it again. provider says fungus infection, and claims I am seeing these things, all in my mind. psychiatrist says medical not mental as already take antidepressants. Just tonight had my upper denture in and after removing plate with great diffuculty, white worm wrapped around inside and stuck to roof of mouth. Do not care if crazy anymore just want to die.

Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You can not have different worms in different part of the body- the scalp, the mouth.
reason being the worm you see in the wounds are the aggot phases of certain flies. The flies lay eggs in the wounds and the the eggs hatch to make maggots or the worms.
The flies can not produce maggot unless you have a neglected wound. i hope that is not the case with you and hence they are not maggots but may be organised keratin, mucus or dead skin to resemble a worm.
You may have such feelings if you are suffering from anxiety neurosis or psychosis.
You should consult a physician of your locality for a more pinpoint diagnosis and management.
You should improve the hygiene of scalp and shampoo hair thrice a week and keep the scalp dry.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
