Raising awareness to the public and professionals about an emerging disease
Morgellons disease is a medical condition that has the following set of symptoms.
These symptoms include itchy skin, with crawling, biting sensations, white granules from skin and hair follicles, chronic fatigue, sores/lesions and fibrous material coming from skin.
Morgellons disease, is not a recognised condition in the UK and is highly controversial.
Why? Because a limited amount of clinical research has been done so far and morgellons is often dismissed as solely a pyschological problem. We are convinced that there are primary, physical manifestations causing these symptoms.
The term 'morgellons', may disappear once the cause has been determined. Until then, this label helps to distinguish it for all those interested and concerned - whether it's to gain knowledge for professional purposes or to locate the centres of support that are available for sufferers.
Members of the general public and professionals that wish to raise awareness in their community, GP surgery etc, please make use of the action resources.
Morgellons UK is especially keen to hear from:
