Registered Nurse With Morgellons?

Registered Nurse With Morgellons Concerns
About three weeks ago I noticed a red bump with (what appeared to be) a straw-like, splinter-like 'thing' in the middle. It doesn't itch nor hurt until the 'splinter' is triggered by clothing rubbing. This is akin to the 'splinter' association in my thinking.
With a tweezer I pulled and removed 'splinter'. However, the red bump didn't go away, but it caused me no more issue for about a week. Then I noticed two more bumps in the same area forming a cluster on my upper thigh. Also the 'splinter' was coming back on the initial site. This cluster of red bumps are all within 1'' to 2'' of each other.
Now, as of April 21, 2013, I have two more established bumps with clear splinters and a forth red bump is now beginning to appear.
Interesting as the initial bump has lost the second splinter from clothes rubbing, I think. I plan to pull the other current 'splinters' and save if this proves to be a prudent thing to do.
I'm puzzled - not alarmed. If it weren't for listening to C to C, AM radio program (hosted by George Norrey) a couple years ago, I wouldn't have known to wonder if this could be a form of Morgellon's Disease/Syndrome.
I'm not crazy nor delusional! It's curiosity that leads me to even pull Morgellon's up on computer and write all this.
As an added note, I grow the plant called prickly pear. When I make contact with one of the plant pods and get the little, thin 'thorns' in my skin, this is the closest experience to whatever is presenting now - only those little red sores caused by the prickly pear cactus go away after the thorn-like splinter is removed.
Well, hope this helps someone.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this unusual symptom. I'm sure it will be a comfort to many of our other visitors that there is a registered nurse with morgellons concerns as so many of them are being told that they are crazy simply because the doctors they visit don't know what is plaguing them.
Although we have no firm answers either, I always encourage everyone to put their body in the best possible place of defense AND offense by both cleansing their body with a natural herbal detox
and boosting their immune system with nutritional support and whole food supplements
It's amazing, as I'm sure you've seen on many occasions, how wonderfully the body can fight back and deal with such a wide range of issues when it just has the right tools and support.
By the way, I like to use clove oil as a topical application for skin issues, and you may find it helpful too.
