Suggest treatment for painful ulcers that oozes out clear pus
I suggest a possibility of pediculosis corporis
Hello. Thank you for writing to us at healthcaremagic
I have gone through your query and I have tried to understand your problem. I will try to help you with your problem.
I could gather that one thing that is bothering you now is black specks on skin and on clothes.
I would suggest a likely possibility of 'pediculosis corporis' or 'body lice'
However I would request you to upload a few representative photographs so that I am able to substantiate my diagnosis.
Make sure that you post clear and focused photographs which clearly show me these specks that are concerning you.
I would like to know whether do you have any symptoms like skin itching?
Have the painful ulcers healed or are they still persisting?
I would also like to know your age and sex? Do you live alone or do you have other family members staying with you?
Do you have any other medical problem? and are you on some medications?
Unlikely a mold would cause serious skin involvement
Molds are mostly implicated in causing allergies like asthma, rhinitis, sneezing etc and it is unlikely that molds would cause ulcers or something like that, provided the individual is not seriously immunocompromised e.g has HIV or terminal illness but not in normal individuals or those who with only a weak immune system.
I shower everyday & have been washing clothes in hot water, adding Borax. I wash clothes after each wearing & put them away clean. I still see tiny black specks on them, about the size of a period at the end of a sentence. Do they need to be thrown away? I wash bed linens everyday. I am 62 yrs old & live alone. I am female.I've been vacuuming & disinfecting surfaces. My meds are for blood pressure & anxiety. My head is not affected. I do get low grade fevers as well as low temps like 95.4. I get fine rashes on chest and face. At times I feel nauseous. Why wouldn't the dermatologists pick up on this? Could it be a mite? I will try to download a picture. I'm not a technology expert so how would I send the picture to you? And, how do I handle this? I've been taking Epsom salt baths & notice black specks, slime & other debris coming off my skin. It's disgusting. Please tell me how to rid myself & my home from these awful things. If I left my home, how long would it take for lice & nits to die? Still don't understand why the drs who examined me couldn't make the diagnosis. I also believe they are in my car. Have noticed leathery patches of skin, but don't itch. I can feel a very light sensation of something softly landing on me especially near my nose and mouth. Other times, I feel sharp jabs. Can you help? Thank you! Again, how do I download pics & get them to you?
