Hi, I am treating for Bart Lyme and Babesia and definitely get the burning scalp whenever I decrease antibiotics. In addition to the burning, I also get an ice pick like headache that is unrelenting. If I wait too long before increasing my antibiotics the burning begins to spread to other areas of my body. I consulted with a ll neurologist and was told it's because I have an active infection. As far as what is causing it, hard to say. Could be Lyme or one of the co infections. All I know is that it goes away when I return to normal dose of amoxicillin, Clarithromycin and atovaquone. Are you treating with antibiotics or herbals and if so which ones?
The ice pick headaches are usually associated with Bart.
