Morgellons Disease Pictures and Story

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced today that it is launching a study to learn about an unexplained condition that causes people to feel as if they have foreign substances growing from their bodies.

People with the condition, referred to as Morgellons disease, say they have fibers and other inorganic material growing out of their skin.

“We earnestly want to learn more about this unexplained illness, which affects the lives of those who suffer from it,” said Dr. Michele Pearson, principal investigator leading the study for the CDC, in a press release. “Those who suffer have questions, and we want to help them.”

“We have a team of epidemiologists, laboratorians and pathologists to carry out the study,” Pearson said.

The study will be conducted in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California Division of Research. For more information, CLICK HERE to visit the CDC’s Unexplained Dermopathy Web site.

In 2006, a number of Morgellons sufferers told ABC News in interviews that when they consulted doctors, they received diagnoses they called wrong or dismissive. Brandi Koch, the wife of former Major League Baseball player Billy Koch, said that she felt as if she were living in a horror movie, claiming she had colored fibers coming out of her skin.

Koch, of Clearwater Beach, Fla., said that her life was good until one day in the shower when she noticed something strange — tiny fibers running through her skin.

“The fibers look like hair, and they’re different colors,” Koch said.

Koch said she knows that what she experienced “sounds crazy,” but it’s true. “If I had a family member call me up and say, ‘I have this stuff,’ I’d say, ‘I’m sending a straitjacket over. You need some help,'” she said.

Anne Dill described a similar condition. Looking at Dill’s life in Florida, she seemed to be living the American dream — her three daughters excelled in sports and were straight-A students.

But life in the Dill household was far from idyllic. Anne’s 40-year-old husband, Tom, died in January 2006, and she believes his death was due to a contagious illness that has infected her entire family.

Dill described her family’s skin: “There’s this fibrous material. It’s in layers.” Dill said the skin on their hands was particularly bad, very swollen and itchy, and said it felt as if bugs were crawling underneath the skin.

Consulting Doctors


Dr. Greg Smith of Gainesville, Ga., has been a pediatrician for the past 30 years. He claimed that a fiber was coming out of his big toe, and he had video footage to prove it.

“It felt like somebody stuck a pin in my toe and wiggled it, and it just continued to hurt,” Smith told ABC News in 2006.

He said he never thought he had bugs. “I’ve certainly had those crawling sensations, and the fibers which come out of the skin are really bizarre, and really odd.”

Smith was handed over to a hospital psychiatrist when he went to the emergency room complaining of a fiber in his eye. He admits that he, too, would be skeptical if a patient came to him with the same story.

“I would wonder if they’d taken their medicine that day. It makes no sense. It’s totally bizarre. It’s something that — just telling the story is so outlandish on the face of it — that no one would believe it,” Smith said. Dill’s doctor told her to stop scratching, even though many of her sores were in places she could not reach.

Koch went to the Mayo Clinic, where doctors didn’t believe that the fibers she’d brought them had grown from her body.

“I saw the infectious disease doctor, and I showed him some samples that I had and he snickered,” she said. “I can’t go through another doctor blowing me off or looking at me like I’m crazy. I know I’m not.”

Dr. Vincent DeLeo, chief of dermatology at New York’s St. Lukes-Roosevelt Medical Center, weighed in on what he’d say to someone who came to him with this condition. “I don’t think this is any different than many patients I’ve seen who have excoriations and believe that there is something in their skin causing this,” he told ABC News in 2006.

DeLeo said the open lesions were most likely a result of scratching the skin.

Relying on Your Own Research

But biologist Mary Leitao refused to accept the medical skepticism surrounding Morgellons.

Leitao’s son, Drew, was just 2 years old when Leitao noticed an odd sore on his lip that would not heal.

“He very simply said ‘bugs,’ and he pointed to his lips,” said Leitao.

Leitao never expected to find herself at the center of a medical storm. But when her son complained about the strange sore, the biologist, who once ran the electron microscope at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, did what any scientist would do. She took a closer look.

“What I saw were bundles of fibers, *** of fibers,” Leitao says. “There was red and blue.” Even stranger, they glowed under ultraviolet light.

Armed with research, Leitao took her son to a doctor at one of the country’s leading hospitals. He dismissed her tale of fibers and wrote to her pediatrician, saying that her son needed Vaseline for his lips and that his mother needed a thorough psychiatric evaluation.

Undaunted, Leitao began poring through medical literature looking for clues. What she discovered was a 17th-century reference to a strange disease with “harsh hairs” called “Morgellons.”

She named the strange fibers Morgellons disease and put the information on a Web site, Morgellons.org. At the time of her interview in 2006, more than 4,500 people had contacted Leitao, claiming they had Morgellons-type symptoms. The name stuck, and the disease was featured on the television show “ER.”

But do these fibers grow from inside the body, as Morgellons patients believe, or do they come from the external environment — a kind of lint — as the medical skeptics say?

Searching for an Answer

Forensic scientist Ron Pogue at the Tulsa Police Crime Lab in Oklahoma checked a Morgellons sample against known fibers in the FBI’s national database. “No, no match at all. So this is some strange stuff,” Pogue said in 2006. He thought the skeptics were wrong. “This isn’t lint. This is not a commercial fiber. It’s not.”

The lab’s director, Mark Boese, said the fibers are “consistent with something that the body may be producing.” He added that, “These fibers cannot be manmade and do not come from a plant. This could be a byproduct of a biological organism.”

Dill said she looks at pictures of her family and finds them unrecognizable. “My kids have to see not only their dad but their mom disintegrating, and that’s gotta be really scary.”

While they wait for evidence that they hope will convince the medical community to take them seriously, some Morgellon’s sufferers wear pink bracelets that say, simply, “Fortitude.”

    we moved me to a brand new apt. leaving all my belongs, no clothes, nothing……..a fire would have been easier than to have to say goodbye to any cloth, wood…etc…but the worse was my husband divorcing me thinking he was to blame …i’m now 40 & as my former students say, i’m beautiful, yet i’m wasting away………….i can’t gain weight, i take way too much medicine for pain, anxiety, depression, insomia,,,,,,,,,,,but w/o it i’d be in a home….my family thinks i’m doing this to myself cause of the divorce, yet this was the cause, for my husband found thru a friend about Morgellons after my body looked like a human dart board……..he lost faith, so did i …i thought i must be crazy then when his friend saw a special & printed pictures, my husband whose dad is a animal vet. view under the microscope & the pics. were id. but it was all the stories of others that broke him emotionally ….as he said….all these sound like your everyday struggle & diary…which i had called the diary of an insane woman cause i knew what i saw felt, observed yet w/no computer it was too crazy so i thought well this might be a go comic book one day…i hoped to view back and say, “oh how silly i was” BUT THE STORIES OF OTHERS WAS IDENTICAL, HAUNTING….

    WHAT do i do, all i can do is pray, and i can’t seem to do that….
    i feel guilt cause i think the pain pills and all is the result cause i was one who never took an aspirin, so sometimes i feel this is God’s punishment….i take as prescribed, yet i’m still addict just legal, i’ve tried to to stop, yet i find myself in bed w/o a bath , clean sheets , no energy to fight, hope or want to live anymore….i’m stuck ….i’m not proud that i take these pills, but even if it for an hour of escape & feeling normal, i ask God forgive me, cause i can’t do this alone….would the pills be a problem before….probably not or i know not a dependence….alone i stay and tonight i took my med. to have the courage to write & take a bath…cause w/o the escape….i focus on the sores & now i’m going insane….A master degree in education, a model once, but more than all, I had all i wanted, my love, my soul mate, my friend, now i haven’t the energy to sometimes eat….crave sugar…which i try to at least do sugar free….’

    can’t someone please, have mercy & tell me where & what to do…i’m dying not just from this but because i’ve stopped trying and wish the want to was there, but i’m so weak alone, yet funny my ex made a trust to take care of me…too bad money isn’t what makes me happy, i don’t care if i have to battle this disease, i just fear dying alone, i tremble shake, nightmares….not even sleep lets me have peace…OH GOD, MY LORD JESUS help send someone….i’ll go on news shows anything to help others and perhaps find a cure or way to live a quality of life…..my number is 903 583 4901 call ….God be w/us all, nay

  2. Conspiracy theories aside lol
    Has anyone here attempted to use oral ivermectin (Stromectol, I think is the brand available in the states) as a cure?
    I did read through and I didn’t see it mentioned

    Ivermectin works both internally and externally and is a substance derived from a specific bacterium, it seeps through the skin from the inside out and is effective at killing off a broad spectrum of parasites, while being very safe to use on people over 30kg (severe overdosing can cause problems as large concentrations of ivermectin can cross the human blood-brain barrier and can then inhibit neurological function/apparently can cause blindness, but ivermectin typically does not cross mammalian blood-brain barriers and it’s very hard to overdose.)

    It works by crossing the blood-brain barrier, paralysing and killing parasites at a certain stage in their life cycles (except tapeworms, as their neuro functions work in a different way) so most people would recommend at least 3 doses, once a week to clear infestation by breaking the cycle, the half-life of ivermectin is 16 hours, another reason why repeat treatment is recommended.
    If you can convince your doctor to give it a go I think it’s worth a try, seeing as there are very limited options, with a lot of you being immediatelly dismissed by medical “professionals”(which is pretty disgusting if you ask me. With more and more people speaking up they can’t ignore it for much longer at least).

    I don’t suffer from the disease, I’m just a very interested and concerned individual. I’ve been researching M at various sites but I’ve never seen ivermectin brought up, I figured it might be worth the mention as it is proven to be extremely effective with other parasites.

    • Yes, I used it when I first got crusted scabies (the most severe type). I think I took 3-4 doses at intervals but don’t remember how many now. I posted that stuff somewhere… The black specs/mites fell off all over the house and I got much better.

      I had to throw away my clothes because there was no way to effectively clean them. For weeks, I wore T-shirts and boxer shorts, throwing them away after each use. I tried washing my clothes but the black specs (scabies mites?) remained in the clothes and came off by the thousands with a lint brush. Obviously, clothes/towels were impossible to clean. Also, there was a problem with “specks”/mites remaining in the washing machine and the potential to contaminate anything I washed. It was impossible to remove them all.

      Forget everything you heard about killing this crap with hot water or by bagging your clothes/linens. This stuff didn’t die. I even micowaved my cotton clothes (can’t micro polyester). Each time I wore previously “cleaned” clothing, I got worse.

      Also tried to boil my cottons. While cooking, there was growing trail of black stuff from the boiling water to the stove-top and counter-top. Similar to cooking crab without a lid? What a mess!

      Short story- after treatment with Ivermectin, use new towel, new clothes, new bedding etc.
      To help prevent environmental reinvestation from the scabies (which I later came to believe was the mode of transmission of the Morgellons Disease), I lightly sanded and lamenated the hard wood floors. I’m pretty sure this killed the scabies and helped prevent re-investation.

      My mattress was covered with specs/mites, so I also slept on an air mattress and cleaned away the “specs” every day. Would not go near the carpet- no way to kill that stuff except perhaps weekly PROFESSIONAL steam cleaning.

      Knowing what I know now, I would immediately remove all the carpet and replace with hard wood floors, freshly laminated. Expensive? Not as expensive as having this horrible disease.

    • Whoops! Meant to say hard wood floors freshly varnished with polyurethane, not lamenated and that I lightly sanded and VARNISHED hard wood floors with polyurethane.

  3. Check out all the YOUTUBE/CHEMTRAIL websites. Our government is spraying us from the sky with chemicals. That’s where this is coming from.

  4. EVANSVILLE IND had morgellons for 6 years

  5. I also forgot to mention that when I purchased my house in 2006 it was infested with flees. I had it bombed and it took us a month to get rid of them. The people who lived there before had two dogs and they would let them run in the woods behind my house and then let them in the house.

  6. Mary Kay,

    I was wondering if you could tell me about your friends symptoms so that i can compare with mine? I am from the south suburbs and I live in a wooded area and I haven’t heard of anyone out this way with this diseases. I don’t know if i have Morgellons but my symptoms are as fallowed.

    I started with clear fiber like hair that sticks out of my pores, just like a hair but hard as a splinter. I plucked them out but they kept coming back in different places of my body.

    About 3 winters ago I caught a bad stomach flu for about 10 days. I had fever but the strange thing was the severe coldness that I felt on my bones, i could not stop shaking I had clothes on layers and layers of covers on me and I could not get myself to warm up. I also felt itching allover my body and to be honest I was feeling so sick I thought about suicide and I am not the person to ever think of something like this. Every winter after that I get sick but it’s not stomach flu anymore it is just the chills and not being able to warm myself up no matter what I do and the fever gets very high. I get’s shots from someone that I can’t disclose because she get these shot’s from Mexico and I’m not sure what they are or the name of them but they help me. I just want to say that this person I trust with my life and I am taking a risk by taking them but she is a relative and she is very smart and I trust her with my life. I don’t know if this haves anything to do with Morgellons but i think somehow they are liked.

    About 6 months ago I started getting very depressed/panic attacks and not to mention the fatigue and I understand some people might say that I’m just lazy and overweight but the fatigue is just so bad not normal.
    my doctor put me on Lexapro 10mg for my panic attack and Clorazepate 7.5 mg to help me sleep. They didn’t help me sleep!! I had bad dreams but they were so real and in all my dreams there were florescent light similar to the fibers. I also started getting dry itchy patches on my stomach I assumed that they were side effects from the medication and never asked my dr..

    Around Nov of 2008 I started itching on my back and I asked my husband to look at my back to see if I had a hair on my back that was causing me to itch. He looked at it and said it looked like a pimple and he started to pick at it because I was itching so bad and it started to hurt. He said there was a black spot in the middle and for weeks he tried getting it out but it seemed to go in and out of the pore, as soon as he tried to pluck it it would sink into the skin. Finally after weeks of scratching it and picking at it he was able to pull it out and it was long and black looked like a spiders led or a blister but it came apart like it was made of fibers.

    About a week ago I got another one on my back and the black spot it there but he can’t get to it and besides it is very itchy and painful, if I just run my hand over it, it is extremely painful that it goes all the way to my spine and chest.

    Mary Kay or anyone with similar symptoms please get in touch with me and let me know if I have this or if it’s something else!!!!!!

    • Hello! So sorry that you are going thru this. I have been going through something very, very similar. I hope that this helps. I finally got diagnosed with a rare, and serious fungal infection. (* As well as multiple parasites, that so often happen with Fungus.) The Fungus is called: Tinea Capitas, but, a rare form- which sounds exactly what you have. This Fungus invades the inside of the hair shaft itself. It grows ‘stems’, (* that translucent lint-looking thingy) and fully grown becomes those black fiber things in your skin. Or, black specs. (* Mold,) the reason you feel it all the way to you’re spine, is because it grows under your skin, and can get all the way to your bones. You need a specialized test, a culture of a lesion, but, can is it’s the rare one, that will come out negative. Then, you need a special test on an infected hair, to diagnose it. To find infected hair, pluck one from a red/ or itchy spot, and look at it with a bright flashlight, inside the hair shaft itself, will appear to be dots, or barcode-like appearance. These hairs need to have a lab test, a routine microscopic examination of the hair itself, under 400 magnification with KOH solution. They NEED to ID Hyphae. You need to be on strong oral, anti-fungal meds ASAP. This is what I have, and I almost died from it. I ended up covered from head to toe with an awful rash, bugs, mites, flies– which laid thousands of eggs on me, which hatched out as … maggots and worms. This is no joke. Plz seek medical attention right away. Whatever you do, don’t go to ER and say you have bugs- that will only get you the stigma of parapsychosis, lol. Keep the emphasis on the fungus– insist you want these lab tests. I also diagnosis when ascariasi. The larvas travel under the skin. If you think you have that, look it up answer insist on that test, also. (* There is a blood test, stool tests are too outdated and unreliable. I ended up when hundreds of worms in my lungs, which collapsed, I almost died) ALSO, Lyme’s Disease can cause a lot of the symptoms you described. Good luck! I hope that this info helps you. Don’t give up,- this is your one life to live. I’m much better now,, but still have it all. Maybe no cure, just control it. Research cleaning your environment of parasites, fungus gnats, (* drain flies) and skin parasites/ mites. Follow those protocol, and you’ll have 99% of possible causes covered. It will help to alleviate your symptoms greatly, plus eliminate most of the organisms out of your environment. Don’t let those stories of never getting them out of your house discourage you. The last thing to leave, will be the macroscopic flies. They leave on their own, after you’ve beat the Fungus in your body- they thrive on FUNGUS. They will look for a new host once you’re body and environment are not a good place for them. (* Watch your pets, be tho. They may become new host!) Good luck, ur does get better, but I won’t lie, it will take hard work and preserverance.

  7. Help! does anyone know of a doc in the chicago land area that can help a friend of mine suffering from Morgellons?

  8. Hello fellow suffers,

    I have had Morgellons for two years. There is now so much information both good and bad, true and false, logical and illogical. The fact is there is no known cure at this time. The symptoms very with different descriptions of what is occurring on the skin, beneath the skin and what emerges from the skin. Dr. Hidegrade Staniger PH.D Industrial Toxicologist and Doctor of integrative medicine gave a very interesting TV interview in 3 parts saying that this problem lives and assembles in the stomach and kidneys:

    http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/2060/Morgellons_Nanomachines_Invasion_From_Chemtrails_1/

    http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/2061/Morgellons_Nanomachines_Invasion_From_Chemtrails_2/

    http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/2062/Morgellons_Nanomachines_Invasion_From_Chemtrails_3/

    Others suggest it is a resurgence of a pathogen first seen in the 18th century. I’m sorry I’ve lost the web site address.

    Whether Morgellons is a fungus similar to one witch attacks the roots of some shrubs and trees, passed on by insect bites or man made nano technology being sprayed from airplanes, known as Chemtrails, the reality is, Morgellons is here. Thousands are being infected everyday around the world. Until some one of prominence, fame or political influence becomes infected, or when the CDC concludes their testing, we will remain a group of people suffering from an affliction with no cure, and diagnosed as being delusional.

    How do I deal with Morgellons?

    Hydrogen Peroxide seems to elevate an impending outbreak. Peroxide will also induce an exodus.

    Tea Tree Oil stops the itch.

    Epson salt baths will cause an exodus, leaving the skin feeling soft for a night.

    Taking antioxidants, eating large amounts of garlic, ginkgo for brain fog, drinking apple cider vinegar with antioxidant juices and preyer seen to keep the rashes down – and of course…don’t scratch!

    I cut about a 3 or 4 inch strip of clear packaging tape and apply the adhesive side of the tape to my face in order to remove what bites, crawls and emerges from skin of the face or where ever the gooey worms, globs or fiber moving worms emerge. This is a good way to keep specimens and keep track of what is coming out of you.

    I pluck and pull out alien hairs.

    Wash clothes and sheets daily.

    Since I have practiced this regiment, I have had few pimple bumps with black specs out brakes – I rinse my hands with Peroxide at least once a day, applying the Peroxide when and where ever I have an itch. If the itch is intense or the out brake large, I will also apply Tea Tree Oil. The combination of the two works well.

    Taking Epson Salt or Peroxide baths or a combination of the two results in an exodus, you’ll be amazed at what you’ll see in the bath water!

    What the majority of suffers seem to agree upon is the necessary to build up the immune system. Taking Antioxidants; Vitamin Supplements, specially Vitamin C; eating antioxidant foods and juices, Helps! But in no way a cure.

    I have suffered from this horrid affliction! I have been unemployed for three years. I wish this on no one and do everything possible in order to not infect others. From my initial infection to the present day, I have come a long way. My whole body was infected. I had blotches, rashes and dermatitis all over my body. The Doctor I saw had no clue and sent me to a Dermatologist who diagnosed me with Contact Dermatitis, telling me that I needed to change my soap and detergent. After spending hundreds of dollars on toxic medications that had no effect, I cleared up the dermatitis by applying Apple Cider Vinegar to the effected areas and by drinking Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother two or more times a day. After a year of searching the Internet I came upon a number of Morgellons sites. The specimens I had collected matched what was being shown under microscopes on youtube. After changing my diet and taking the Antioxidants, Vitamins, Ginkgo, garlic, etc. I am functioning close to normal and feel that I can go back out into the work force in some area where I will have little or no contact with others. These things still emerge and fall off my face and body on an hourly bases.

    I hope what I’ve written helps those who have just been diagnosed or those of you who have been suffering wanting help.

    I have not tried Utra-silver nor MMS. Ultra-silver scares me! MMS I my try soon.

    Good luck and may God help us all.

  9. I’ve every reason to believe I have Morgellon’s disease..
    Based upon what I’ve read, the pix I’ve seen & the testimonials..
    Submitted by people who describe the same symptoms I’m experiencing..
    Contracted what I thought was a case of scabies 6 years ago..
    While visiting an island in the Pacific for a month..
    Treated the affected area with Lindane when I returned stateside..
    But to no avail for I’ve the same sores in the same places since 2002..
    Tried sulphur cream, iodine, the peroxide wash, alcohol you name it..
    Last month I ingested 2 rounds of oral Ivermectin..
    Lucky I’ve a doctor who pretty much prescibes with what I ask for..
    Even though I’ve not done an antibiotic in over 20 years I could’ve..
    Something like an anti-staph or anti-strep injectable..
    I’ve had a syringe filled with penicillin in my fridge for a year..
    When I realized I no longer had scabies it didn’t matter..
    I just kept treating my skin as if I did convinced it was a parasite..
    Brought something back with me off that island but I don’t know what..
    No doctor beside my GP will address it..
    I’ve been to several dermatologists but they hem & haw..
    None of ’em want to even do their job & take a skin sample..
    I have only Medicade so I’ve very little say in the matter..
    Saw my GP last week & brought a tiny 60X microscope in with me..
    For years I’ve only had a small magnifying glass to examine with..
    Radio Shack has a mini-scope selling for $12.50 so I bought it..
    What I had found when I peered through this thing blew my mind..
    In the past I’ve seen black specks & yes even the wavy white bands..
    But never the black rod-like fibers that don’t look like hair..
    No one I know has anything even remotely similiar to what I have..
    As far as I know I’ve not passed it on to anybody..
    I think it is a vector-born disease & I was infected by a mite..
    Where I was on the island chickens ran rampant & rats were evident..
    Sugar cane was burned driving ’em out into the neighborhoods..
    What may or may not have started out as scabies became this..
    Sores that’ll begin feeling like I’ve a splinter in my skin..
    I try to remove it the spot gets red I scatch it & it gets bigger..
    And redder & it may itch & I treat it with all kinds of topicals..
    Sores last upwards of 2 months & when they heal it leaves no scar..
    I’ve been covered from head to toe 80 penny-size legions at a time..
    Right now I’m on the mend with only my left arm & face affected..
    Last Spring my back, legs & ears showed visible signs of it..
    Even then the dermatologist wasn’t interested in taking a skin sample..
    It looked as if I had the plague with seething wounds all over me..
    This is getting long but I was glad to stumble upon this website..
    The pix associated with this site show what I’m battling..
    Only not as bad but close there’s somthing quite similiar I see..
    Morgellon’s has certain characteristics unlike anything else..
    Now that I’ve actually seen the black rod-like feature I’m sure..
    I want someone who suffers likewise to contact me..
    I want to talk seriously about this condition with somebody..
    Anyone reading this who can relate & who’d wanna reply it’s..

  10. Hi All:

    I have never had colored fibers growing out of the lesions I have experienced, but the following may help a bit.

    When my lesions errupt it feels like a hive about to appear. There is usually an itching at the site. It comes up looking like a typical whitehead. If I sqeeze it, the white part comes out, but underneath is a small white hard dot. If I put hydrogen peroxide on it, the tiny spot becomes more visible, but the hydrogen peroxide will not cure it. This remedy I discovered: buy in the first aid section of any store the “blister” non latex , multiday bandages. Scrape the lesion a bit with a sterile tool; clean it with hydrogen peroxide. Wait until the HP has long dried. Apply the multiday “blister” bandage. It is extremely important to keep this blister bandage on for as many days as possible. This may be hard, as they are ugly. The bandage allows the body’s own healing fluids to form a bubble (“blister”) around the lesion. After several days, when you remove the blister, if you gently rub the lesion, causing a bit of friction, you will actually SEE these things squiggle out of the lesion. It may take several applications of this method before these things are “killed.” I don’t know what these things are, but it does appear, that if they are deprived of air and light as much as possible, you can kill them.

    Call me crazy. I do not care. TRY THIS!!!
