Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.The appropriate medical treatment for MD is not yet clear, but there are two main treatment approaches based on what your doctor thinks is causing the problem.

Doctors who think MD is caused by an infection may treat you with several antibiotics for a long time. This may kill the bacteria and heal the skin sores. If you have anxiety, stress, or other mental health problems, or if you develop them from coping with the MD, you may also be treated with psychiatric medications or psychotherapy.

If your doctor thinks your condition is caused by a mental health problem, you may be treated with psychiatric medications or psychotherapy alone.

Unexpectedly getting a psychiatric diagnosis when you believe you have a skin disease can be devastating. You may feel you’re not being heard or believed or that what you’re experiencing isn’t important. This can worsen your current symptoms or even lead to new ones.

To get the best treatment results, establish a long-term relationship with a doctor who takes the time to listen and is compassionate, open-minded, and trustworthy. Try to remain receptive about trying different treatments, including visiting a psychiatrist or psychotherapist if it’s recommended to assist with the symptoms of depression, anxiety, or stress that are sometimes associated with dealing with this confusing disease . Let the doctor decide what is best for you .

Take care
