Having a potentially disfiguring skin condition is bad enough without having that condition be described to you as a delusion. Yet, that is precisely the conundrum faced by thousands of morgellons disease sufferers the world over. As documented by Dr. Rahim Karjoo, morgellons is a serious skin ailment. The most common symptoms are painful itching, horrifying sores, and a strange crawling sensation under the skin. Sometimes fiber-like materials are seen. Some patients also report debilitating fatigue and loss of memory.

Dr. Karjoo’s research indicates that morgellons is not, as has been postulated by mainstream medical sources, a psychological delusion or a hoax, but an all too real syndrome which is related to the use of silicon fibers. These silicate fibers enter the system either in the form of surgical implants or through endogenous (silicone breast implants or injection of silicon inside the body) such as joint hernia repair by silicon mesh or any silicon devices inside the body, or exogenous (environmental) source such as a variety of products used externally such as skin products containing silica such as food and medicine, possibly leading to morgellons symptoms.

Adding to the confusion around the illness, the very name “morgellons” may well be a misnomer. In Dr. Karjoo’s opinion, the name is simply a substitute for the true cause of the illness, environmental contamination. Some observers have started to call the illness “Karjoo phenomenon.”

Whatever the source or correct name of this ailment, it is crucial that sufferers seek treatment. Particularly if you have already seen doctors who have been unable to treat your symptoms, now is the time to set up an appointment with Dr. Karjoo.
