Sterifab will kill most insects, including mites, scabies, lice etc. It is designed to be used on bedding, furniture, carpets, etc. It is not designed to be used on humans or skin.
Before you treat for anything, you need to determine exactly what it causing the problem.
If you can send us a sample of the insect we can identify it for you.

As of this writing (December 2020), the only explanation I have for anything that resembles a thread growing out of carpet, furniture, or even human skin, is that it is either a human product or a plant product. Threads are made of plant materials like cotton, etc. Some are synthetic and made of polyester, rayon, etc.
If the "thread" you are finding is a human product, then it most logically is a human hair. It is virtually impossible for a plant or synthetic "thread" to grow out of human skin.
I would suggest you figure out what the issue is before attempting any treatment. Regardless of what believe it to be, it needs to be evaluated by a professional scientist to determine its origin. Almost all major universities have a department of entomology or at the very least a department of biology. I would suggest to contact someone at a local major university, send them samples and get their opinion BEFORE attempting any treatment in which you could endanger yourself or others unnecessarily.
