Welcome to the community. Sorry you are here!
I had/have Bartonella, Lyme, and other co-infections. When I started treating the Bartonella, I also got the weird scratches. They would come out during my epson salt baths. I did 2 weeks of Rifampin plus Des Bios Bartonella Remedy. That did the trick for about
a year. I recently started hitting my biofilms hard (per LLMD instructions) and low and behold, Bartonella came out to play. I am doing the Buhner herbs to hit it again. Berberine is one of those herbs. I took some today and yesterday and got a wicked headache. I may be in the minority, but I just don't think you can kick these infections without accepting a certain level of discomfort. My LLMD treated my SIBO with 3 days of Xifaxin and it was gone after that. You might want to try it (super expensive but only 3 days!!!!).
The great thing about
Buhner herbs in a tincture form is you can literally start with 1 drop and go from there...I use Woodland Essences.
I would get up to speed on detox methods (read New to Lyme, start here! post). Also, get your doctor to check your methylation genes to make sure you can detox this stuff. Otherwise, that's another whole thing you have to deal with.
