In brief: Psychiatric basis
Having seen several cases of this syndrome, the mayo clinic has recently published a case series regarding morgellon's, concluding that an infectious cause is not there.
In many cases, patients with this condition are very, very resistant to even consider a psychiatric cause for this awful affliction of perceiving worms are coming out of the pores of their skin.

In brief: No
No, no one knows the cause of morgellons.
Without knowing type of bacteria, how one can choose antibiotics?

In january 2012 the cdc issued a final statement that morgellons is not an infectious disease.
..Thus no role for antibiotics. If you are interested, follow this link: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/morgellons good luck.
