Ask a Dermatologist Online: Morgellons Disease

Dear Doctor

My name is M and I am a 55 year old woman.

I have developed itchy sores on my forearms and face.

These sores produce some black fibers.

I also feel as if tiny insects are crawling under my skin.

I am on treatment for depression and I occasionally use marijuana to relax.

What could I be suffering from?
