Morgellons syndrome, also known as delusional parasitosis. At the present moment Morgellons disease is a very divisive skin disorder. Morgellons is an unusual parasite-like skin disease, which produces irritating sores all over the body. Symptoms linked with Morgellons comprise sensations of itching, crawling, biting, stinging, pricking and burning, believed by sufferers to be caused by an infection or infestation of some sort. People suffering from this condition report a range of symptoms including crawling, biting and stinging sensations as if they had insects on and under their skin. Skin lesions (rashes or sores) appear all over the body.
Fibers of different colors blue, red, green, etc. threads are found protruding out of the skin. Some sufferers of this skin disorder or illness see it as like to scabies. A cause of Morgellons Syndrome is associated to Lyme’s Disease. Others consider that Morgellons is the result of nano machines accidentally or purposefully released into the environment. A nano machine is a man-made molecular machine comprised of a few atoms or chains of atoms use to do work at the atomic level in manfacturing process. In the biological field, nano machines work at the celular level inside of body cells. Another possible cause of Morgellons is Chemtrails.
Fibers likely to those described by Morgelllons patients seem to be found in jet plane exhausts – those white lines in the sky caused by the passage of airplanes. Chemtrails appear to be particularly heavy releases from planes containing fibers. There is strong anecdotal evidence linking these Chemtrail aerosol fibers to Morgellons fibers. It is possible that the cause for Morgellons is thus some type of chemical poisoning caused by airplanes. Many dermatologists treat Morgellons as delusional parasitosis. Treatment of Morgellons syndrome is recommending the use of antibiotics, antiparasitic medications, herbal supplements, and light therapy.
Atypical antipsychotics such as olanzapine or risperidone are employed as first line treatment. Antipsychotics are useful at treating delusional parasitosis at doses as low as one-fifth to one-tenth the dose typically prescribed for schizophrenia. The antibiotic treatment is not curative, because when it is discontinued, the symptoms return Persons with Morgellons symptoms may turn to alternative remedies described on web sites and discussion groups. Some treatments are dangerous, however, and have included the use of bleach, veterinary medicines intended for de-worming horses, and industrial insecticides.
