Are there alternative treatments for Morgellons disease?

Morgellon's disease is not a widely accepted diagnosis, and so there is not an approved treatment for the disease either. Because there is no one accepted treatment for Morgellon's, a lot of people try different treatments to varying success. Some people soak their skin in warm water, while others use lotions or balms to relieve itchiness. Some people find that psychiatric medication can help with some of the symptoms that affect their behavior, such as depression and anxiety. Additionally, some doctors may prescribe antibiotics to relieve symptoms.
