What is the current recommendation concerning Morgellons disease?

Because Morgellon's disease is not widely accepted as a valid diagnosis by the medical community, there is no one recommendation for treating Morgellon's disease. The most commonly agreed upon recommendation is, however, that someone suffering from the symptoms of Morgellon's disease should find a caring and compassionate doctor who is willing to discuss the possibility of the disease. Because the symptoms of Morgellon's disease mimic those of other conditions, your doctor may first want to rule those out as a diagnosis. Be sure to discuss your concerns and any research you've done with your doctor about your Morgellon's disease symptoms.
