“Delusional Parasitosis is a mistaken belief that one is being infested by parasites such as mites, lice, fleas, spiders, worms, bacteria, or other organisms.”

It is odd how our brain functions when it comes to pests and the fear of being infested by parasites. 31% of people who have been infested by bed bugs tend to start showing symptoms of  Delusional Parasitosis.

The symptoms are:”

  • Patient seeking numerous opinions from medical doctors, exterminators, hygienist and entomologists, then often complaining about the incompetence of the advice received and treating the specialist with hostility and suspicion.
  • Sensations of itching, burning, crawling and biting that may lead to self-mutilation as the sufferer attempts to dig out the parasites. This causes minor scratches to gouged out pits and ulcers.
  • Exhibit the “matchbox sign” (also called “specimen sign”) which is where the sufferer offers for examination specimens kept in a small container such as a matchbox. Specimens usually consist of fragments of skin, hair, dried blood or scabs. Sometimes they may include living organisms such as ants or flies.
  • Extreme measures may have been taken to cleanse the skin and to disinfect or even destroy clothing and furniture.”

Do you think you have ever experienced Delusional Parasitosis?
