Home Invasion By Skin Parasites Like Morgellons

Author : Richard Kuhns

Many doctors saying that Morgellons is a hoax. Too bad they haven't had the opportunity to experience Morgellons first hand. Mary Leitao, an ex lab technician, coined the word after her young son began exhibiting symptoms of growth of fibers and lesions. 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.
The symptoms were described by Sir Thomas Brown as some type of worm-like parasite moving right 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.
How does one catch it? From where does it come? Answer: The infecting organism varies. A backed up cesspool was the cause of one lady's infection. A certain type of bacteria was found in her home in high levels. 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.
It's normal for those who are infected to see their doctor for help. Unfortunately practically all physicians are totally in the dark with respect to Morgellon's disease. The reality is that many doctors blame the symptoms on the patient suffering from Morgellons. Doctors accuse Morgellons sufferers of scratching themselves to the point of creating lesions and rashes.
This has always confused me. How a doctor can look at the rashes, lesions, and crazy fibers growing from the skin (that are fluorescent) and announce that there is nothing wrong. How they can take biopsies and do blood tests and when nothing is identified say that there is no reason for the symptoms. It would make sense to send these patients for study to local universities or at least report the symptoms to the CDC. No, they just dismiss their Morgellons patients. Yes, they might refer the Morgellons sufferer to a parasitologist, or an infectious disease specialist, or a dermatologist and the result is pretty much the same--they are dismissed. 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. 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." It's not until the person who has Morgellon's disease discovers what it is that they also learn that their home has been completely invaded. They learn 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 things like non healing lesions or sores, bug like things coming from the skin, cotton-like balls, body temperature of 96 degrees instead of 98.6, hard nodules under the skin, black specs, and flakes or sand-like granules coming from the skin.
Later other health issues kick in fibromyalgia, brain fog, fatigue, rashes, and hair loss.
The road to recovery is two fold--treat the body and disinfect the home. It's absolutely important that both be done simultaneously to keep reinfection from occurring over and over. The process is just like learning to drive a car with a clutch. Let out the clutch to quickly and the engine chokes. If you let out the clutch too slowly the engine races. Disinfecting the home is done utilizing substances such as diluted laundry grade ammonia to products like Klean Green. To treat the body it is important to use a debriding agent, a special diet to cut down morgellons activity, probiotics and special supplements and so on to build immune functioning. Yes, there is life after Morgellons and that is the good news.
