Well, that depends, I am a holistic practitioner whom has been looking at the evidence of a protist, a modified form of dictyostelium discoideum, for a long time for the condition Morgellons...looking at the hx of the responses to the rx s given, the nutritional deficits, the exacerbations with use of certain foods which feed or starve the organism, and so forth. The inflammation and welts under the skin are actually mounds in the dicty life cycle, the spore capsules under the skin present as raised white heads, and further evidence is surfacing from an ocular case of dicty polycephalum, to a systemic gastro case, with lesions in the small intestine similar to the skin. On the surface, the cases look like excoriated acne and so many internal sensations of mistaken for DOP, but looking deeper one finds low vitamin d, elevated LDL, anemia, low folate (dicty gobbles up) and in later cases a dry gangrene is presenting also. Shutting down this organism would seem futile, but GABA pathway inhibitors may work for preventing spores, amoebicides along with something for the aspidocytes (a tiny back up cell inside the amoeba, not sensitive to antibiotics or what the amoeba is sensitive to, and turns into amoeba once original amoeba dies). So, my question is whether any of you are thinking these cases might deserve a deeper look without directly relying of skin biopsies for which standard lab tests do not reveal the pathogen? I see a case at the bottom which leans strongly towards this condition. I realize without cdc validation of this, one might hesistate to validate this...but, compassionate docs are needed for these people. I speak from abstracts found on the organism and seeing a correlation to the life cycle under the skin if one looks closely, for the pattern. I wanted to hear what any or some of you thought in regards to this.
