What can live in carpet and also infest on humans?
Small white/ brown looking circle like found in home and feels as if under personal nails, hair, skin, even clothing. Sometimes itches but no bugs seen. Just egg like almost and continued to get worse. Is this even a condition, scabies maybe? Any cause would help with dilemma.
We cannot identify insects without actually seeing them. We recommend that you try to obtain a sample of the insect and get it identified by an entomologist. You can find an entomologist be contacting your local cooperative extension office. You may also want to visit your family doctor or a dermatologist so that they can perform the appropriate tests to see if there is indeed an arthropod infesting your skin.
