Hi, guys! Just a quick question.

I’ve heard (and seen) that Bartonella rashes generally look like stretch marks; or some version of them. I’m sure everyone’s are not the same.

I’ve got this small patch of little red bumps just above my belly button. There’s a few more under it that kinda look like lines. Like the bumps form a little line. Doesn’t hurt, not itchy, just kinda popped up over night. Very small, like not even the size of a penny.

Does this sound like something anyone has experienced before? Thanks!!

I've had several different rashes on different parts of my body over the past few years.

Mine didn't appear until I started treatment.

I don't recall one with little red bumps though.

Lyme and the co's can all cause them....difficult knowing which infection is responsible...other than the EM is Lyme and the streaks/stripes/scratches are bartonella.

My New LLMD diagnosed me with Bart based on a rash that looked like 1/8 inch and smaller moles but red. Only noticed a few weeks ago but I'm on day 4o of Cowden proticol. So new things pop up all the time. She stated this Bart type rash is common in upper WI.

It makes sense since I have most of the Bart symtomes but not the sore foot bottoms.
