Brief Answer: You may be having Morgellons disease. Detailed Answer: Hi, After reading the history, I feel that you may be having Morgellons disease. In this condition,patient is having symptoms related to skin,nerves and mind. Sometimes it is also called fibre disease. There may be itching,burning and crawling sensetion. Patient also often reports that he has what look like threads, hair, or fuzz coming out of lesions on their skin. There may be psychiatric symptoms like amnesia, depression and difficulty in clear thinking. Exact cause of this disease is not known. While there is no specific cure for Morgellons disease, individuals who suffer from this condition have been found to benefit from medications that treat psychosis or tics, like olanzapine. So, I would advise to consult dermatologist along with psychiatrist for perfect diagnosis and treatment. If there is itching, you may take antihistaminics like levocetirizine till itching is relieved. If there is secondary bacterial infection, take antibiotics. Antibiotic cream or calamine lotion may be applied. Avoid soap bath,you may use dettol liquid in water. Antidepressant like escitalopram and antipsychotic like pimozide or olanzapine may be taken to relieve psychological symptoms... I think, you might be satisfied with my answer. But, still, if you have queries, you may ask.. Thanks. Dr. Ilyas Patel MD

This condition was witnessed by several ppl.I have also pics and samples.I have visited two different doctors who seem under the i mpression that I'm suffering from Schizophrenia So my question to you is: what can I on my own do to treat this.I have since writing you suffered a heart and breathing attack that has scared me severly.I seem to encounter the same obstacles as a lot of ppl with this condition.Medical professionals simply refuse to believe,it.I refuse to become a suicide victim like so many others because doctors who took the oath to help and protect us can't seem to be more open minded.Please be as specific with your answers as possible:brand,website,color,price...Anything at all that might help me locate these items.Please help save my sanity and my life
