Enterobacteria – White Pox – Symptom

According to a poll a fellow member has started at a Morgellons Disease Forum, 9 out of 10 participants claim to have white spots/pox on their skin.

Significant is, that many Morgellons Sufferers seem to have them on their forearms.

Some have reported, that these spots occurred after visual lesions and assume they could possibly be scar forming.

In some cases these white pox marks can also appear without any previous formations of wounds/sores.

A few members suggest Vitilligo as possible cause due to the fact that they look like a dysfunction of skin pigmentation in lack of Melanin in those areas.

According to my research I believe that a bacteria, namely Enterobacteria http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterobacteriaceae, is  the cause of this appearance of white pox formations on skin.

I claim this to be an additional main symptom of Morgellons Disease.

This bacteria is associated with the so called ‘White Pox Disease’ that affects not only humans but also marine organisms.

Another interesting aspect is, that Enterobacterium leads to an infection in insects such as flies of the type Drosophilia (fruit flies) but also other insects such as the silk worm.

Some information on Drosophilia:



I found it quite interesting that this bacterium is also commonly found in damp, moist environments such as bathrooms, toilets etc.,where it manifests as a pink water coloration and a slimy film. A few members have reported to have seen this in their facilities..

Another aspect, I’ve found suspicious is the fact that this bacterium also can cause a biofilm on gums and teeth. Many Morgellons Sufferers have reported this condition.

This article also states that Enterobacteria can occur as a manifestation of pink dis-coloration also in/on starch/sugar based foods.

Potatoes for example are rich on starch and sugar.

Research on the recent investigated fungus gnat has shown that these insects are attracted to this vegetable especially when in the decomposition stage.

Many members of our forum have reported to have an environmental issue with fungus gnats, some have found these gnats harboring in/on potatoes or near where potatoes were stored.

This investigation lead to the presumption that infections of Serratia marcescens (Enterobacteria) over an insect vector, such as the fungus gnat, is the main cause not only of our disease but is also suspected respectively to be highly related in causing those white pox/spots on our skin.

Water contamination with this bacterium is also an important factor which I believe to be highly involved in causing Morgellons Disease.

Unfortunately Enterobacteriae is multi resistant to several antibiotics and therefore very difficult to eradicate.

This claims to be true, as many Morgellons Sufferers still remain ill after long term antibiotic treatments.

For further information, here is the link explaining Serratia marcescens:



“Serratia marcescens is a species of Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium in the family Enterobacteriaceae.

Due to its ubiquitous presence in the environment, and its preference for damp conditions, S. marcescens is commonly found growing in bathrooms (especially on tile grout, shower corners, toilet water line, and basin), where it manifests as a pink discoloration and slimy film feeding off phosphorous containing materials or fatty substances (such as soap and shampoo residue).

S. marcescens may also be found in environments such as dirt, supposedly "sterile" places, and the subgingival biofilm of teeth.

S. marcescens can cause infection in several sites, including the urinary tract, respiratory tract, wounds and the eye, where it may cause conjunctivitis, keratitis, endophthalmitis, and tear duct infections. It is also a rare cause of endocarditis and osteomyelitis (particularly in people who use intravenous drugs recreationally), pneumonia, and meningitis. Most S. marcescens strains are resistant to several antibiotics because of the presence of R-factors, which are a type of plasmid that carry one or more genes that encode resistance; all are considered intrinsically resistant to ampicillin, macrolides, and first-generation cephalosporins (such as cefalexin).

In elkhorn coral, S. marcescens is the cause of the disease known as white pox disease

In silkworms, it sometimes occurs as a secondary pathogen in viral flacherie disease.

In Drosophila research laboratories, infection with S. marcescens is common.

It manifests itself as a pink discoloration or plaque in or on larvae, pupae, or the usually starch and sugar-based food (especially when improperly prepared).

Since 1950, S. marcescens has steadily increased as a cause of human infection, with many strains resistant to multiple antibiotics.

The first indications of problems with the influenza vaccine produced by Chiron Corporation in 2004 involved S. marcescens contamination.

Because of its red pigmentation, caused by expression of the pigment prodigiosin and its ability to grow on bread.”

Serratia marcescens is also found as red pigmentation on bread and was used in influenza vaccines.

Further research resulted that Enterobacteria can also infect Poultry and is also seen as major cause of disease in humans.

  1. […] flies/fungus gnats in particular. Here is some more info on it, for those who are interested: Enterobacteria – White Pox – Symptom Morgellons Researchers Currently we have also seen these white spots also on plant leaves which causes the plants to […]

  2. Thank you!!! I have these white spots show up at times with redskin on my forearms… You all have found the reason for mutant fruit flies that live after being in the microwave 2 minutes… (They die in fresh brewed iced tea though) ~ I now know what the pink algae looking stuff is on lettuce, the shower floor, etc… I am further aware of where i get a healthy dose of Morgellons from, the relatives house i stay in! Besides from my 3 mercury fillings that need redone… Plus it surely explains why water from WaWa in the frig takes on different things at times… 1 cup water turned yellow, 1 cup is covered with tiny bubbles on the inside walls, 1 cup had a floating see through cloud in it, 1 cup had the same bubbles and grayish black algae like clumps on the walls! I live a mile and a half from The Mega Military Base of Ft Dix, McGuire and Lakehurst in NJ…

    I can only phalom all this lowers your immune system and lets cancer strike you as well as other medical conditions to develop…

    I sincerely thank you!
