Does anything come out of them?
How long has this been going on?
What do you think this might be?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information John.
Do you feel that you are infested with some sort of bug/critter?
Sorry. I am on call today and have been very busy.....just got out of the OR and managed to get a bite to eat for the first time since a doughnut at 11 am :(
As much as you might not like to hear this it sounds to me like you are not actually suffering from parasitic infections -- and this is why your doctors can't find them and none of your treatments are working -- but rather you suffer from a common psychiatric condition where you BELIEVE you have parasites.Here is a very good article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/45/11/e131.fullThis condition is very difficult to treat, as you might imagine.I suggest you consult with a medical team well versed in helping patients such as yourself.Does this make sense to you?I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.Dr. Rick MD FACS
At this point your best course of action is to consult with a dermatologist.
She will be able to examine you, obtain biopsies of these black spots as well as anything that is coming out of them. Once these samples are surgically obtained the pathologist will be able to examine them under the microscope using special stains and techniques and be able to figure out exactly what is going on.
Make sense to you?
I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.

I am familiar with Gardners syndrome.
You would have to see the dermatologist in person to get the surgical biopsy done so a specimen can be given to the pathologist for examination.
I can not (yet) do surgery via my online computer.
So. Yes, you should see a NHS dermatologist.
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
