Suggest treatment for sores on body due to morgellons

I have what I believe to be Morgellons . My doctor diagnosed me with a fungal infection with staph. But, the medication is not helping... I seem to be getting more sores, I m always tired, I have what looks like strings coming out of my body and little black dots.. I have cleaned and washed Everything in my house, I even used lice shampoo on my hair and body before I went to doctor afraid I had scabies. I m afraid to tell my doctor or show him this stuff, caz from all I read about Morgellans, doctors don t even believe it exists! What should I do?

Hi,

It is delusion of parasitosis. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. It is a psychological condition in which patient firmly believes that he has some parasites on the skin and he feels crawling sensation. You may take opinion of psychiatrist also. Both the specialists might give perfect treatment after reviewing your case.

Hope this helps.

I started feeling bad on Wed. Took a 2 hr nap and have been in the bed ever since Thurs. It started out with body aches (mainly back and legs) but has turned into a severe sore throat but it s not just in the back of my throat, it goes all the way down. I have a cough and try to do so as little as possible due to the pain. I have coughed up a tiny bit of mucus today. Any suggestions on what might be going on?

Can you tell me what kind of sickness would be a rash showing on your body that starts out like a few pink dots and then keeps growing into a big sore that has a tough covering that can be peeled off and leaves an open sore that oozes liquid? Vinegar helps and anti-fungus medicine, but they just seem to keep multiplying?

I m a 27 year old female with large pimples all over on my back, lower, upper, shoulders and small ones on chest. For the last three years I seem to get them at the same time each year, right before summer (yay! Thanks skin!). When I was younger I had bad acne of my face, but not on my body. Now...well...it s reversed. They are very sore and swollen and not really white heads. What is going on?!

hi, my stepdaughter is 5 and the past couple months, has been dealing with very itchy skin. she is only at our house every other weekend, but the last week, myself and my daughter who is 3 have started itching also. her mother took her to the doctor and said a prescription cream was given. i asked her today what the name of the cream was because i m taking my daughter in to be seen by her own doctor, and i figured he d want to know, but she won t tell my husband and i what it was. she got defensive and wanted to know why we needed to know. all she said was it was a one-time application and she didn t remember the name because she threw it away after it was used. the only medication that i can find which is a one-time treatment is for scabies...is there any other ones that might be used for treating eczema? i m worried we got scabies from her and that our itching is related to her issue
