I've been in treatment for Bartonella. Did levaquin for a while, and just switched to Septra. I've been on it 5 days and doing fine. Woke up this AM itching like crazy! Is this a reaction to the Septra or part of a Bart herx. I talked to the dr, and he mentioned HH as an alternative to Lev and now Septra. Anyone have a similar situation or can think of another abx, combo for Bart? Can't take Rifampin.
