these are the type of superrrrrrr itchy bumps i get shown in the top picture....usually middle of night, will wake me up....on my arms as well....which are under a long shirt, sweatshirts and 2 blankets....so i strongly.....doubt its a bite....by morning they are gone...get them more when i am treating aggressively ...i really wonder if others get these, and what they are???
Finally got a chance to look at that picture. Those are precisely the type itchy bumps I had in the beginning when symptoms first started. I told more about
it on your previous post.
They would appear randomly and move around - mostly on hands, arms, abdomen, or legs. Hands and abdomen were favorite spots. The allergist I was seeing at the time called them hives, but they didn’t look anything like pictures I had seen of hives. Mine were always single, tiny bumps. Hives look like whelps and are much larger, cover more territory, and are irregular in shape in all the pictures I have seen.
Anyway, yes, it’s definitely a symptom of Lyme/co. Could be related to mast cells/histamine. However, I recall that allergist had me on a bunch of meds and multiple antihistamines, which I obediently took for 2 weeks until I quit. I had the same fluctuations of symptoms both on and off the meds, so they were not controlling those symptoms.
Can’t say for sure which infection was triggering it - I have many.
BTW, those itchy bumps subsided as the weeks and months passed. I only get them rarely now. They subsided years before I knew Lyme/co was what had happened to me.
