House Plants/household plant giving me an infection?

I have this problem as well. The mealy bugs under the skin attracted spider mites, Phorid flies, moths, and larvae is coming out of the pores 24-7. I think the honeydew settles in the nails and feet. I spray myself with undiluted 91% alcohol and it has no affect. The FL medical system is not treating this issue nor do they care to look at the bug bites. They tried to prescribe psych meds but my digestive system no longer processes food. I am passing blood and solid food and lots of bugs! The GI doc refused to do a colonoscolonoscopy. No skin scrappings have been performed. Spent 50K on docs and got no help.
