Morgellons is a highly controversial condition within the medical community. Many experts agree that the condition is likely related to some form of mental disease. In July we posted the article Morgellons Disease: A Disease of the Skin or the Mind?. Today, we revisit this topic by sharing with you this recent post from Dr. Dominic Carone.
"If you are like most people, you have probably never heard of Morgellons disease or Morgellons. The first reason you have likely never heard if it is because it is so bizarre and uncommon. Most of what is known about it is based on rare case reports or anecdotal stories. The second reason is because it is not recognized in the medical community as a legitimate medical disease. It is a layperson’s term coined by a child’s mother."
