Morgellons isn't recognized as a disease just yet. Until recently Morgellons was dismissed as "delusional parasitosis", just someone imagining

To be honest, I'm not convinced it's anything beyond fibers getting caught into wounds. At least, that's what it seemed to be with me. I had
fibers sticking out of a healing wound, but those fibers seemed to have been picked up from clothing or other environmental causes, not coming out of
me. So, what I had might not have been Morgellons, or maybe Morgellons isn't all that sinister.
Still, I've heard of people who have had painful eruptions of these fibers, and fibers that were several inches long.
I don't think this is "fear mongering", really. I think it's entirely possible that it's a new disease, possibly some parasite we've never seen
before (or that was imported from somewhere else), something like that. As the world gets smaller, diseases that were once local phenomena that no
