What Is Morgellons Disease?

Morgellons disease (MD) is a very rare skin condition in which the infected person feels the presence of fibers underneath the skin, followed by sensations of crawling, biting, or stinging. Morgellons is relatively uncommon and has yet to be fully understood. Some doctors don’t interpret this situation as a true disease and consider it as a psychiatric illness, but others classify this problem as a true disease.

This disease is most commonly found in white, middle-aged women located in the US but as time passes, this disease has spread all over the word, and has especially become quite common in the US with the most reported cases.

What is the history of Morgellons?

The first report of Morgellons disease was in 2002 in US. This skin condition may very well existed before this date, but it was believed it can be insect or parasite infestation. The word itself dates back to the 17th century when a mysterious illness that infected children to develop painful, coarse hairs on their backs was discovered.

What are the symptoms of MD?

Morgellons can be indicated by the presence of small white, red, blue, or black fibers under or on the skin, which causes crawling sensations.

  • Itching
  • Joint pains and aches
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Hard to concentrate
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia [1]

Is Morgellons disease contagious?

The theory that Morgellons disease is spread by ticks means that it’s unlikely to be transferable between people. So, it’s generally safe to say that if a person asks their doctor, ‘Can I catch Morgellons disease from another person?’, the answer will be no. [2]

What is Morgellons disease treatment?

There’s not any clear medical treatment for people suffering from Morgellons. Treatment for Morgellons can be divided into two parts depending on how your doctor is able to distinguish your case of MD as a result of a skin infection or mental health problem.

But to get the best result in your treatment it’s better to find a doctor who has a wide knowledge about this disease and continue your long-term treatment and see a psychotherapist to overcome the anxiety, stress and depression that Morgellons can bring out.
