I've had this problem for more than 3 months. Me an XXXXXXX had moved n to a old house. That was contaminated, rats,feces,dropping, parasites, mold, cracks an holes everywhere. It started on my face, it looked like a bump,i tried to pop. An 5 more come up, i tried popn those an more. Ifreaked cause i couldn't get em outta my facface. I know i had ringworms, an some kind of parasites were coming outta my fingers, it hurt. An feels like glass when i bump it accidentally. Now though i have eggs an tiny black things coming outta my head. Im taking a pic of my head now

Brief Answer:
This could be louse infestation or tenia capitis infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for your reply
this could be a fungal infection like tenia capitis infection or louse infestation

in my opinion you need to apply GBH (gamma benzene hexachloride) or permethrin lotion after consulting your doctor
apply it on whole of the head and keep it there for 10 to 15 minutes then wash your head with a good moisturizing shampoo

Maintain good hygiene
cover your hair with a cloth while working in contaminated places
