I've recently realized that my cherry angiomas are a sign of some kind of an infection, especially Babesia, but I don't have any other conclusive symptoms for it. Any ideas on this matter?
I've been studying wildlife since elementary school so I have been exposed to many, many ticks. Based on my long term symptoms, I've probably had Chronic Lyme disease for my whole adult life, I was born in 1966. My LD might have aggravated my fibromyalgia, causing my upper back pain etcetera. Depression since 1990, S.A.D. and torn rotater cuffs. Just keep plugging away!

Hi Dan,

That is a tough one. I have these too and my dr says bartonella causes them but I've also heard the babesia thing too. Apparently it has to do with your hormones being affected. I started Japanese knotweed and I haven't noticed more popping up but I still have them.

My husband who is now 63 has gotten some of these within the past couple of years. His Dr. said he's healthy as a horse, he doesn't have Lyme, bartonella or babesia. He said there is speculation as to what causes them but no real evidence. He said he has them too and it just happens to some people.

If you search online, most sites say that they are something that just happens to some people as they become older.

I found found some websites that explained that cherry angiomas are a sign of bromide poisoning.
Cherry angiomas are caused by bromine poisoning. Research conducted by Drs. A. D. Cohena, E. Cagnanob, and D. A. Vardya, shows the correlation between bromine poisoning and cherry angiomas.
Mysterious red moles appeared on researchers’ bodies after working for extended periods of time with brominated compounds.
Bromine poisoning, stored in the fat tissues, is a halogen. It is a known disruptor which prevents the absorption of iodine in the body.
The body attempts to move the toxin away from vital body organs storing it in fat tissues and in the skin where it resides as “red dots.”

Bromide is a chemical element in the halogen group (along with fluoride, chlorine and iodine). Bromide is found in many processed foods including bread made with enriched flour. It is used to make food last longer and increase shelf life. Bromine is toxic to the human body and is carcinogenic.

Do I think he has Bromine poisoning? Nope. We aren't worried about it because we eat very little processed food and no wheat/enriched flour because I'm gluten intolerant.

I do have Lyme and bartonella and LOTS of problems but not one Cherry Angioma.

When I started Artimesiae, mine became worse. I haven't noticed any more of them but I do have quite a few. I always thought it was from bartonella because my symptoms from babesia have diminished.

 I have them too. I had 4-5 my whole life but since treating the lyme and babesia I have 60-70 of them. I never tested positive for Bart. but who knows? I too have seen an increase since starting the artemisin. I read something in regard to not having enough iodine so I started adding iodized salt back into my diet.

You need to continue with the iodized salt no matter what, unless you are taking iodine supplements. We all need iodine for our thyroids and our food no longer provides this much needed nutrient - as well as many others.

You should probably have your thyroid tested as well if you have been without iodine for long. This site will help you understand not only what tests to have done (the usual one the doc's run aren't worth the paper they are written on!), but how your thyroid and adrenals can be affected and we not hardly notice it:
