Greetings friends! :wave:

Yet another type of rash has appeared; this makes my 4th kind. I feel like changing my name to "spot". hee hee

My 1st rash was my original Lyme rash before and during treatment - raised, red, super itchy bumps in an oval about 6" around.

My 2nd rash was a Bartonella rash that came out after treatment - looked just like bruises, all over my arms and legs.

My 3rd rash was scattered spots on my arms and legs that were white and rough and peeled off if I picked at them.

My new collection are red spots on my arms and legs. They look exactly like a big pimple before it gets a head (gross, I know, but that's what they look like).

They are not raised, not itchy, and after about a day, they get a scab on them which bleeds if I scratch it off. After a few days, they start to shrink and eventually go away.

I have mixed feelings about it. A new rash means that the antibiotics are working to kill the buggers inside me, which is a good thing. It also means they are still plenty of buggers inside me that are alive after 3 1/2 years of treatment, which saddens me.

Oh well. Guess I'll keep fighting!

Peace and health to all,
