Will my dermatologist be able to see if I have parasites or a moth larvae on my head and I'm my ears? This shit is freaking me out

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

I had a stroke 4 yrs ago and it left me paralyzed on my right side so I get sick alot

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've been feeling something bite me in my room at night and find these little white things that look like lint or rice all over my room

sorry about the delay.

yes, your dermatologist would be able to check your ears and your skin

I am sorry you had a stroke

sometimes after a stroke, the nerves in the brain can be injured

and you can have abnormal sensations from your ears or scalp.

you should bring in this lint or rice in your room do your doctor for evaluation.

you may have parasthesias or abnormal nerve sensations making you have these sensations.

you may benefit from medications like Neurontin (gabapentin) or Lyrica (pregabalin) to help your symptoms

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
