Persistent scabies-like condition may not be all in people's heads

Q: Can you please help me? I have been using lice and scabies treatments (over the counter and prescription) for three years. Something seems to be crawling within my scalp and skin. I see black things, large eggs in my hair and things that look like "sticks" that shoot out of my scalp and body. I also have what looks like pieces of gravel falling from my body and head.
Nothing seems to help. Medications are useless. I have given up going to the doctor. I have visited a specialist who refused to even look at my head. I am very clean. I do garden, and there are many ticks where I live. Is it possible I have a tick infestation?
I hope you believe me, that this is so odd.
A: This letter is representative of many I get on this subject. Twenty years ago, I would get three or four letters like this in a year. Five years ago, I was getting a dozen or so a month. Now I am getting them almost every day. Initially, the condition this person described was called delusory parasitosis or delusions of parasites. It was considered a mental problem, and it still is by a large portion of the medical profession. Indeed, I used to refer these folks to a dermatologist with the hope that the dermatologist would refer them to a psychologist.
I am not sure anymore. This condition is starting to reach epidemic proportions, and I can't believe it is all mental. My theory, and it is only a theory, is that a small percentage of these cases are delusory parasitosis, but the rest may be the results of something else, possibly pollutants. Pesticides are not adequately tested, as the inert ingredients in all pesticides are considered trade secrets and are not even required to be listed, much less tested. It is a very real possibility, in my opinion, that some of these inert ingredients are causing some of the phenomena occurring in some of these people.
This condition now has a name, Morgellons disease. As I said, most people don't take it seriously, but I do. I have offered to help by collecting samples of fibers, seeds, mites, etc. and curate them for further study. If you suffer from this condition, you can send me samples if you like. Go to my Web site (see below) and on the front page you will see instructions on sending bugs in the mail for identification. Follow the instructions.
I am going to set up a national database of all the samples we receive and try to get the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to take a serious look at it. If this condition is caused by pollutants, we need to address it, possibly by insisting all ingredients in pesticides are tested and listed on the label. If this is a mental condition, then we have a major problem on our hands in this country, in my opinion.
