There have been a mystery case of fiber growth on the human body that only a microscoope could see the hair fiber. In UV lights the fibers glow in blue and red lights.

Morgellons are not necessarily considered to be "real" by everybody yet. The CDC has commissioned a group to look into whether this condition is actually real or not. Its fascinating either way. How could a large group of people have the same symptoms if they didn't have some biological cause?

The Morgellons Watch blog has some good insight into the subject.

But I think I can phrase the answer to "what is wrong with them" in a reasonably short manner:

"They all have different health problems with a superficial symptomatic resemblence, and they mistakenly believe they have the same disease"

Three yrs. ago I was bitten in the neck by a dog and underwent rabies shots for several months. Following the shots, my first "break out" of Morgellons kept me very busy and very terrified for the next six months. The little "pimple"or "bite" you might read about later turns to skin ulcers. I, too, talked about "crawling sensations"in my legs. My family thought I went bonkers....asked the church to pray, etc. The wounds/ulcers went away about 6 months later. I have treated those memories delicately until recently, just five weeks ago my symptoms began again. THIS time, I'm not terrified. I know there is an answer out there. And until there is, I know I can heal my "self"- my ulcers with fungus oils, iodine. There ARE fungal properties to the "skins" that later form on the ulcers/wounds.

I would suspect a virus which is evolving into a parasitic life form. I would check for DNA content, or even simple amino-acid configurations.{maybe this has been done, I haven't reseached it much}.

According to MedPageToday, the CDC is set to begin a study of this mystery ailment.

It appears I have finally found a competent doctor and have been diagnosed with a severe skin yeast infection. The black specks were from yeast die off and "fuzz" was from damaged hair follicles. I have been on a strict sugar-free, yeast free, gluten free, no sugar substitutes except for Xylitol, dairy free, also no vinegar, malt, fermented or foods prone to fungi/mold in production i.e. chocolate, nuts, cheese,mushrooms. I have been on the diet for 2 weeks and the results have been remarkable. I had severe rash, open oozing sores (at warmest areas of body), severe itching, which became worse with antibiotics, steroids, or warm baths. I am currently taking Diflucan orally and nystatin cream but just started these yesterday. I was missing work and cancelled family plans for Christmas due to debilitating symptoms. I feel alive again. Yeast infections are common with parasites as well so a colon cleanse and probiotics are another important part of the equation.

I thought I truly had "things" and would find specks and "worm"like things coming out of my skin. I even hydrated my skin with Eurcine cream at my Dr.'s office and we watched these "creatures" pop out. What it actually was were not "living creatures" but actually yeast discharge nicely encapsulated in my poors. When loosened they looked like little worms and would "pop out" of my pores. I thought it was parasites and found hunderds of these. I could spend hours... but it was actually from the yeast. A yeast skin infection can be easily dianosed by a skin scraping and also sores tend to have a yeasty smell. If you are having these symptoms iit is worth investigation. It took me 3 doctors and a lot of personal search to figure this out.

If you feel you have a yeast skin infection you most likely have a yeast overgrowth in your gastrointestinal system. Here is a way to check this quickly: The very first thing when you wake up in the morning, roll over before getting out of bed and spit twice into a glass of water. Now over the course of the next 15 minutes watch the glass of water. If your spit just kind of dissolves and dissipates in the water, you do not have a yeast infection...
If, on the other hand, it becomes cloudy, has little fingers and strings, sinks to the bottom, or does anything else other than dissipating in the water, you may have a candida yeast infection. Strings and spider webs are a very positive indication for yeast. If you have what appears to be sediment in the bottom of the glass, you more than likely have parasites, also, which many fungal disease sufferers do have.
