Since the symptoms are cause by an allergic reaction to the springtail, there are a variety of symptoms and vary from person to person. The main symptoms that my family and I have experienced are:
- a wispiness on the skin, like a feather brushing it, but nothing’s there
- a crawling sensation: can be caused by the fungus and bug
- a stinging senstation
- “bites”: actually cause by the furcula getting stuck in a pore or a sypmtom of the fungus
I had problems with them in my ears, while others had problems in their mouth, nose, and around their eyes.
