A while back are central airconditioning went out and we had to open the windows, unfortunately it let bugs in. One of them was a phorid fly, and I don't know if there was anymore. I bug bombed and couldn't get rid of them. I was the only one bitten. Know I feel like stuff is crawling in my ears,nose, and one night it felt like something was digging into the side of my eye and I woke up with an eye infection. I feel like something is jumping,crawling,biting,stinging on my body. At night especially, I feel like something is jumping on my eyelashes,face,eyebows,into my nose,mouth. I can't sleep. It can even be extremely painful when this biting occurs. What could this be! Is there anyway these bugs have transmitted something to me. My aunt came to visit a while back and she,her husband and child all had the same symptoms, but there's went away, mine hasn't. I never see anything, but sometimes I find black dots on my eyebrows or lint were I feel like i've been bitten. There's also allot of dust in are house though. I don't know what this is, but I know I can't tolerate much more. Please Help!

Hi, Thanks for writing in. First of all please realize that phorid flies do not bite humans. They are just a nuisance because they usually come in clusters. Most of the insects and parasites do not cause bug crawling sensation on the body. However it is important to rule out possibilities of spider bites, scabies, body lice, mosquito bites and centipedes. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Apart from these there can be non insect factors also which can cause bug crawling sensations like cosmetics, detergents, ammonia based cleaning agents and certain medications. Diabetes, hyperthyroidism and anemia can also cause a bug crawling sensation. I would suggest you to consult your PCP and undergo complete evaluation. It is important to rule out all these conditions by a detailed history and tests.

I sent these bugs off and they said they were phorid flies. Maybe it was something else biting me ,I'm sure more than one kind of bug flew in here, but I would see a bug that looked similar on me, and they did bite. I had also read that phorid flies do not bite humans. I know doctor's hate when people say they have looked stuff up on the internet, but they had something on morgellon's, is that real! Anyway Thankyou for Answering my question!

Let's see what the doctor says but I heard that there is a condition where you have the feeling of bugs crawling in you body etc... while in fact it is just a false impression.

Quick answer for you (with very interesting links to Morgellon's symptoms, whose sufferers are most likely NOT crazy): You probably let in either bird mites or thrips. Both are small enough to get in through the screen and both have been proved to bite humans and live on them for a short period. In order to get rid of them, you must try to catch at least two or three bugs in alcohol and have them identified. THen, find the nest and have it removed. There may be more than one, so be sure to look EVERYWHERE. Once the nest is removed you will need to have your home treated inside and out. Same with your car. Thrips live in plants and soil and will eventually die off if you treat them thoroughly, but bird mites are absolutely vicious. You may need to evaluate the importance of keeping some of your belongings and if that's more important than getting rid of the mites. They can be that serioius. Do not wait- they breed incredibly quickly and each day they go untreated they multiply by thousands. Best of luck!
