Concept.png Morgellons disease
Disputed condition that the official narrative stamps as a psychiatric illness.

Morgellons disease is a "controversial"[1] and currently poorly understood medical condition, described a sensation of crawling, biting, and stinging on and in the skin. [2]

Official narrative

Morgellons is the informal name of a self-diagnosed, scientifically unsubstantiated skin condition in which individuals have sores that they believe contain fibrous material.[3] For these reasons, MD is often considered a psychiatric illness that should be treated with antipsychotic medication.[4]

Problems with official narrative

Clinical studies supporting the hypothesis that MD is exclusively delusional in origin have considerable methodological flaws and often neglect the fact that mental disorders can result from underlying somatic illness. In contrast, rigorous experimental investigations show that this skin affliction results from a physiological response to the presence of an infectious agent. Recent studies from that point of view show an association between MD and spirochetal infection in humans, cattle, and dogs. These investigations have determined that the cutaneous filaments are not implanted textile fibers, but are composed of the cellular proteins keratin and collagen and result from overproduction of these filaments in response to spirochetal infection.[5]
