    Anybody else ever get it?
    I ask merely for information
    It's clearing up nicely with topical medication, if you're wondering

    I guess that’s better than scabies, I had a couple buddies that got scabies and when I looked into what they actually are it freaked me out big time.

    Good it’s clearing up

    I got it once in high school, likely to do with the lockers we used for P.E. Cleared up with medication, never a thing again.

    Had both ringworm (couple times as a kid, living on a farm) and scabies (got it from a skeezed out dude who sat next to me on a greyhound bus).

    I'd definitely choose ringworm over the scabies, if I had to. It's much easier to treat, and it doesn't end up all over your body by time you figure it out.

    Speaking of infections and infestations (and traumatic insemination), what about bed bugs? I've never had them, but they're around, and since I live in an apartment (and used to travel a lot) they were always on the back of my mind.

    One of the common treatments is heat- they park a trailer with a generator on it outside, and run big cables to electric heaters in the place. They raise the temp up around 117-122F, and it kills all the bedbugs.



    ... So what do you do with all the guitars if that happens?

    I had a not so hygienic friend who got the scabies and gave it to our bud his neighbor, I was smart enough when I found out that I stayed away for a while,
    I’ve always had kind of a parasite phobia although lots of them live within us, I’m fine if I don’t see or know, once I looked into scabies and how the “crust” they form is from dead skin cells they ley the eggs/newborn into I really got freaked out

    Yeah, it's pretty groady if you think about it. Funny thing is, many of those parasites like scabies and lice actually prefer cleaner people over dirty. Either way, it is definitely creepy in a way, the thought that you've got all these bugs crawling all over you and laying their eggs in your skin.

    I suffer from really dry skin and spots of eczema in the winter every year. Every few years it might start sooner than I think or be worse with no good reason, and I kinda go down that mental rabbit hole of "is it just eczema, or scabies?"

    I’ve heard that since elementary school about lice preferring cleaner heads. And I’ve had it twice so I know you don’t necessarily have to be unkempt to attract these things

    That sounds terrible about the eczema

    If you own guitars, do NOT use heat treatment...it will destroy the guitars, and you can't take the guitars out first because the guitars & their cases could be infested, too. You can only take the clothes on your back, and you gotta take them off before you back into the house. Chemical treatment or tenting is best.

    Use athlete's foot remedies. Works fast. Not a worm. Be aware, a staff infection can look very similar!

    .

    Ringworm is a fungus and the anti-fungal ointments take care of it. Follow the directions.

    As for the bed bug guy ... look up the youtube videos of 'bed bugs on a plane'. You won't be so cavalier with your luggage getting home after that.

    I got it as a wrestler in high school. which is pretty common.

    Got it from my running headphones decades later—took a bit to realize it was that old foe.

    A pain to cure as it is a resilient thing.
