Arthropods: Collembola are arthropods. The arthropod phylum includes the insects, collembola (springtails), arachnids (eg. Spiders), and crustaceans. Although many believe that collembola can cause human infestation, there is as yet no definitive proof of this, and there is no well established standard-of-care treatment.

Collembolla: My understanding is that these scavenger parasites cannot invade human skin nor can their eggs and,therefore, do not provoke problems for our bodies. However they may occasionally be found on human skin but produce no disease. No pharmacological treatment is needed. An entomologist would be an expert who could answer your question best.
