    Morgellons: Terrifying New Disease Reaching Pandemic Status

    http://www.naturalnews.com:80/025757.html

    NaturalNews) It sounds like something from a bad sci-fi movie. People report the sensation of creatures crawling under their skin, mysterious moving fibers appear, and finally bugs and worms pop out. Unfortunately, these terrifying symptoms are all too true. The people having them are experiencing Morgellons, the latest and scariest in the series of bizarre diseases appearing in the last few years, seemingly from nowhere. Morgellons is now reaching epidemic proportions in the U.S. and abroad.

    Morgellons is a multi-dimensional disease

    Morgellons starts with relentless itching, stinging or biting sensations. Cotton-like balls may appear on the body with no reasonable explanation. Soon skin rash develops along with lesions that will not heal. Many sufferers report string-like fibers of varying color popping up.

    Don't panic - it could all be in your head!

    The Mainstream Viewpoint:

    Because skin symptoms are often the most visible aspect of this disease, dermatologists are usually the first to be consulted. Most have no doubt that what they're seeing is delusional parasitosis. One reason is that Morgellons patients often present them with what they consider to be hallmark evidence: a sample of what's in their skin. Psychiatrists call it "the matchbox sign," a reference to the little containers in which the samples are typically stored. (Some doctors now call it the Ziploc sign.) Morgellons patients often show up in the doctors' offices carrying Ziplocs full of fibers; dermatologists say they are simply fibers from clothing, embedded in self-imposed sores, whereupon they promptly offer a prescription for antipsychotic medication. Rarely, complain the patients, is their skin examined first. "You think you're bringing them evidence, but you're really just shooting yourself in the foot," says Leitao. "It just closes the door."

    it looks like meth picking. tweeking out with the picking. though skin parasites do exist. chiggers, scabies, there is this worm, a nematode that can crawl across your eye or under your skin. there is this tiny mite that only lives on the folicles of human eyelashes. and it dont matter if you are clean or not. creepy

    I was recently talking to a friend who is a fairly newly qualified dermatologist. When I asked him what surprised him most in his 6 months of private practice, he replied it was the number of anti-psycotic drugs he was perscribing for people convinced they had stuff like bugs under their skin. I thought he was being sarcastic. But reading your link, maybe he wasn't.

    The CDC currently has a study underway, looking at Morgellon's syndrome. Results should be interesting!
