Well,

Today's the day I find out about a treatment plan and a diagnosis from my nathropath.

I think I need to have specific questions answered.

I have like little blood blisters on my body, that have never gone away. I can apply pressure, and the redness goes away. Then it comes right back. I've read that this could be because of a co-infection.

Does anyone know? What co- infections could it be? That way I know what I can ask my doctor.

Thanks so much!

Babesia causes petechiae - small red spots caused by bleeding into the skin.

There are also possibly similar looking cherry angiomas that are harmless formations of tiny blood vessels that are normal with age. They too are about the size of a head of a pin.

"Normally, when you press your skin it becomes pale, and when you let go, the redness or color returns. When there is bleeding into the skin, the skin will not become pale when you press down on it"

Based on this I would guess yours would be the latter, but if you are having classic symptoms of babesia I would make sure your doc sees them. I'm not sure if other co-infections can cause them.

Good luck.

Thank you so much! I was wondering what would cause it. Because it seems like they are starting to pop up in different places. (I've had them for a good min, but I always thought that it was normal?)

Yes, when I press down on one, and then lift my finger, the redness is gone, but quickly returns. It's slowly has been getting bigger.

I'm hoping I can get some positivity from my doctor soon!

Both my husband and I have these red pin pricks you speak of, and they appear to be semi-permanent; some fading randomly, others still remaining after many years.

We both have Lyme, Bart, and Bab, but never thought to look into these red spots as they are really quite trivial in the grander scheme.

I hope you had a productive appointment!
