Does anyone have these marks on their neck? They are like gray cracks .... I'm suspecting that it could be related to an infection by bartonella .... it might make sense, if one of my first symptoms were panic attacks without reason .... Tomorrow I will send some analytics to igenex to leave doubts ....

Rifampin 300mg + Minocycline 100mg is a good combination? Considering that I am also with 2g of ceftriaxone ...

OriolCarol, that is really hard to tell from that picture.

My LLMD had lyme and he got reoccurring rashes.

I suspect that I had Bart because I got "scratch looking marks" once on my stomach. I had no idea..... I still wonder if I scratched myself.

I do know that our skin is really affected by lyme. We lose collagen and get crepe like skin. My skin got a lot thinner too.

My advice is just keep on treating. That's about all we can do as we watch our symptoms come and go. Or we watch our symptoms change from here to there. Or the lovely symptoms that are the new ones that come out of nowhere.

Lyme symptoms are such a mystery. No rhyme or reason to most of it.

I would say that it looks kind of like a loss of collagen. You can always take a product to help replace the collagen.

Lyme is the usual culprit to collagen loss.
