I started getting lots of markings/rashes on my body after taking a "trial" dose of doxycycline back in November (long story). I now recognize them as what I believe to be various Bartonella rashes/markings.

I'm curious to know what others think. I'm posting a lot of images below.

I get lots of red marks on my skin that look like scratches but aren't, which fade and leave altered pigmentation in my skin. Sometimes they itch, and sometimes I'll feel a searing pain in my skin and then a red mark will appear, and sometimes I don't feel anything and it's just there.

Deeper marks like stretch marks that are red and sometimes purplish, and then turn white/silvery:

Tiny red pinpricks; miscellaneous bruises that appear without trauma/injury:

A spider web/chicken wire/blotchy pattern over my knees/thighs/sides of my forearms and upper arms (kind of hard to see in pics):

Weird "water spot" kind of splotches that are irregular and either circular or elongated;

I also had those, but they seem so faint and so unspecific for bart, that any doctor would say its nothing, so it is hard to tell if it is bart, but if you have symptoms, then sure you need treatment.

Yes, I should have mentioned that I also experience the full range of Bartonella symptoms and a staggering number of late stage LD symptoms.

Yep. I looked at all the pictures. I've had all but the bruises plus lots more skin stuff. I feel sure that mine is from bartonella.
