Patients claiming to have Morgellons frequently present symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis (which is coded 691.80, amusingly I saw someone claim this was the insurance code for morgellons – that’s probably what the doctor told them so they would get their prescription filled).

Atopic Dermatitis symptoms are:
- Itching
- Rashes
- scratching
- Inflammation

How does Morgellons differ from Atopic Dermatitis?

And how does it differ from scabies – it seems with all these known diseases out there that cover the symptoms, why invent new diseases? Scabies actually is caused by a mite that burrows into the skin.
