Thank you for starting this support website and for this post.
KNEES n feet rough n crusty and im freezineg lately also hands got numb a lot 2day.
How do you feel?
Before I even read some of the comments and articles I said to my daughter that what my granddaughter bd girl doing seems to have some OCD familiarity to it.
I recently started picking at the skin under my fingernails because it always feels like I have stuff underneath them.
I have a friend that does DNA lab testing for bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
That was one of the first things I noticed about my own hair as well and with it being super fine it responds more to static electricity which these buggers seem to put off.
I especially hate the drug addiction myth.
And I haven't looked in a microscope since college bio -- but I "think" I see cell walls on some of the filaments, or fibers.
I use tweezers, fingernails and even pins to squeeze or pluck my fave until 20 minutes, half an hour has passed and I am now bleeding and ashamed.
