Has anyone else experienced this? I read some pages on this subject via the search and didn’t see anything specific to my situation. Is this a die-off symptom?
Is the skin flaking as well as itching? If so, or if it does later, this is part of healing the infestation. You may shed part of your skin because it was effected (even if you weren’t aware) by the infestation. Normal places for this to happen is the back, stomach, arms and legs, but not necessarily all at one time, and often only one area will experience this. As long as you’re not seeing a red or bumpy rash, don’t worry, it’s just part of your healing process. Try rubbing coconut oil on your back just as you might a lotion.
