Home Invasion Skin Parasites Like Morgellons
Article by Richard Kuhns
There are a lot of medical professionals saying that Morgellons is a hoax. Too bad they haven’t had the opportunity to experience Morgellons first hand. 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. While searching the literature she discovered that the symptoms were initially reported by Sir Thomas Browne in 1674–350 years ago. Perhaps its been around since then but until 2002 when Ms. Leitao noticed the symptoms in her son no medical professional has reported it. Unfortunately many who see help from their doctor with these same symptoms are diagnosed by their doctor as suffering from 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 stinging, itching, and biting sensations accompanied by a bright colored parasite that borrows out of the skin for a few moments and then back into the skin.How does one catch it? From where does it come? Answer: There are many different organism that carry the infection. A backed up cesspool was the cause of one lady’s infection. Testing her home revealed a high level of a certain bacteria. Slime mold infected another lady. Some are infected from their pets or stay animals that they have taken in. And there are many who are infected who have no idea of how they were infected.It’s normal for those who are infected to see their doctor for help. The sad news is that with respect to Morgellons disease, doctors are totally at a loss as to what to do. 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 physician can look at the rashes, lesions, and weird 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. 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. Searching the internet is usually the only way a Morgellons disease sufferer identifies Morgellons. Usually they search for “skin parasites” or “itchy skin parasites.” By the time the Morgellons sufferer discovers the reality of morgellons disease, they find that Morgellons has completely invaded their home. 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. And any one riding in their car or visiting them could also pick up Morgellon’s disease. In fact even if they rode public transportation, the next person sitting in that seat could contract the disease. Along with the intense biting, itching, and stinging with fibers are also reported things like cotton-like balls, body temperature of 96 degrees instead of 98.6 degrees, hard nodules under the skin, non healing lesions or sores, bug like things coming from the skin, black specs, and flakes or sand-like granules coming from the skin.Later other health issues kick in fatigue, fibromyalgia, brain fog, hair loss, and brain fog.The road to recovery is two fold–disinfect the home and treat the body. 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. If you let out the clutch too fast, the engine stalls. If on the other hand the clutch is let out too slowly, the engine races. Treating the home is done using one or more agents like diluted laundry grade ammonia to products like cedarcide. Treating the body involves using debriding agents to cleanse the skin, a special diet to cut down morgellons activity, special supplements, probiotics and so on to build immune functioning. The good news is that with the right direction, there is life after Morgellons’ disease.
