I have a lot of symptoms of babesia but serology was negative. I do have Bartonella with positive serology and current stretch marks rashes also. Today the above rash it looks like petechiae.
My Bartonella rashes
They are also all over my abdomen.
Maybe it's part of the Bart and it just manifests different on my lower body because I have no stretch marks on my legs at all.
I do understand that rashes are a histamine reaction and I also understand that in the case of bacterial and other infections it's a histamine response from mast cell activation. It's not related to food and I haven't changed laundry soap, other products, don't wear makeup or even leave my house much, so I can't figure out anything else it could be other than part of this Lyme mess. I'll show my ID this week also. Just looking for clues.
Don't put any stock into a negative babesia test result.
Dr. J treats all three B's and likes to get rid of Babs first.
So, just keep in mind, you could have Babesia PLUS Bartonella.
