3wks into treatment for Lyme, bartonella, relapsing fever and ehrlichia. Dr. warned I would probably develop a tiny dot rash during treatment and I underestimated it. The clinic is closed and im itching like I have chicken pox. What works people? I'm going crazy.

Organic virgin coconut oil has worked well for me.

No. She just said 70% of her patients get it and the EM rash freq develops after this. When I google bartonella rash, the tiny dots and pattern look just like it.

Probably a histamine reaction, bartonella is known for that. You could try a little antihistamine and see if it helps. Claritin, xyzal, benadryl is strong but you can take a small amt

What drugs are you taking for treatment? Is it a drug side effect?
