That's so interesting!
Have you and your daughter been in a car accident or explosions of any kind? My friend went through a windshield of a car once and the doctors said instead of hunt for everything that's in her body, they'll just let them naturally expel. 2 or 3 years later, the stuff finally started coming out.
My other wild guess would be feathers from a feather duvet? They might be jabbing you guys in your sleep without you realizing it, then they are eventually expelled the same way?
Either way, I'd love to see pics too!
Do you handle any ropes of that color, made from plastic fibers? I've gotten splinters from ropes . . . . more when I was a kid and people used this type of rope for swings. Back of arm, under elbow was a common place for these splinters. Really irritating. Now I know to avoid old splintery plastic rope.
The only other thing that I know of that fits this description is (as others have said) Morgellons. Which is not an imaginary syndrome.
May this mystery decide not to visit you again!
I wondered if you had feather pillows.
It looked more like bone than a hair as you described. I got it out, it had been festering and It's still a pretty gnarly boil. Mine was peculiar in shape-it had two small nubs on the base that looked like mineralized hair follicles. They were both meeting at a flat opaque translucent that appeared to be fibrous?
I take calcium chewables maybe twice a week for heartburn though I don't know if it's related. So strange.
I went back to google and found a paper about the mineralization of hair follicles. I don't really care to read the whole thing though I'm sure this could be related.
