How does Morgellons disease affect the body?

The symptoms associated with what is called Morgellons disease primarily affect the skin. Reported symptoms include itchy rashes or sores on the skin, as well as black spots that look like threads on the skin or underneath the skin. People have reported feeling a crawling, stinging, or biting sensation on their skin-sort of like an insect is crawling on, stinging, or biting them. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found no evidence of a distinct physical ailment in the cases it investigated, so be aware that your symptoms may be associated with a different disorder that causes different effects on the body.
