Home Invasion By Skin Parasites Like Morgellons

There are a lot of professionals that say Morgellons is a hoax. But then they haven't gone through the night mare of what Morgellons can do to you.

Morgellons is a word coined by Mary Leitao, a former hospital lab technician, whose young son began exhibiting symptoms of lesions and growth of fibers. In researching the symptoms she found that the disease was first described 350 years ago by Sir Thomas Browne in 1674. Perhaps its been around since then but until 2002 when Ms. Leitao noticed the symptoms in her son no medical professional has reported it. In fact usually those who seek medical attention for these symptoms are diagnosed as having delusional parasitosis and if two people from the same family have the same symptoms its diagnosed as folie a deux or if three people have it it's folie a trois

Sir Thomas Brown described the symptoms as some kind of worm-like parasite crawling just under the skin creating itching, biting and stinging sensations with a brightly colored parasite burrowing out of the skin for several moments and then back into the epidermis.

From where does it come? How does one catch it? Answer: The infecting organism varies. One lady was infected from a backed up cesspool. Testing her home revealed a high level of a certain bacteria. Another was infected from slime mold. Some are infected from their pets or stay animals that they have taken in. Many have no idea of what the infecting organism was or even the conditions that led to infection.

Those who are infected immediately turn to their physician for help. But doctors are totally ill equipped to identify much less treat Morgellons disease. Many physicians believe the symptoms are from the patient scratching their bodies to the point of creating rashes.

This has always confused me. How a doctor can look at the lesions, rashes, and strange fibers growing from the skin (that are fluorescent) and say that they can't find anything wrong. How they can take biopsies and do blood tests and when nothing is identified say that there is no reason for the symptoms. Why aren't these doctors sending their patients to local universities for study or reporting them to the CDC? No, they just dismiss their patients. Sure they might pass the patient along to a dermatologist or an infectious disease specialist, or a parasitologist and the end result is the same, they get dismissed.

But Morgellons disease is real and has led many to consider suicide. And usually the only way a Morgellon's disease sufferer identifies it is to search the internet. They search for "itchy skin parasites" or "skin parasites" And would you believe that many doctors actually believe that their patients who complain of the symptoms spend too much time on the internet or simply have too much time on their hands.

By the time the Morgellons sufferer discovers the reality of morgellons disease, they find that Morgellons has completely invaded their home. That the Morgellons parasite has spread throughout their homes and even if they could miraculously get rid of Morgellon's disease they would become reinfected as soon as they returned home. In fact anyone visiting them or riding in their car could likewise contract the disease. In fact even if they rode public transportation, the next person sitting in that seat could contract the disease.

Along with the intense itching, biting and stinging with fibers are also reported: · cotton-like balls · hard nodules under the skin · body temperature of 96 degrees instead of 98.6 · non healing lesions or sores · black specs, flakes or sand-like granules coming from the skin. · bug like things coming from the skin

In time, other complications arise such as: · fibromyalgia · brain fog · fatigue · rashes · hair loss

The road to recovery is two fold-disinfect the home and treat the body. Both must be done simultaneously otherwise reinfection never ends. It's like learning to drive an automobile with a clutch. If you let out the clutch too fast, the engine stalls. If you let out the clutch too slowly the engine races.

The home is treated with agents like dilute ammonia or if necessary other specialized products. The body is treated with special cleansing agents and using a special diet to reduce Morgellons activity. Treating the mind is best done with stress management strategies to get back a sense of self worth.
