How long does Morgellons disease last?

Morgellons disease is not widely accepted by the medical community as an actual disease, so no one really knows how long Morgellons disease lasts. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did research on Morgellons disease. The researchers were unable to determine if Morgellons is a new disease as no evidence was found that it is caused by an infectious agent. There are cases where antibiotics have been able to help minimize or even erase the skin lesions and rashes that are signature symptoms of Morgellons disease. That said, antibiotics may not help the other symptoms of Morgellons disease, such as fatigue and behavioral issues.
