For the last couple weeks I've had a strange rash on my ankles.

One ankle has a oozing pinwheel shaped rash and the other ankle has a red oval the size of two quarters that is not itchy, with an itchy rash next to it. I also have a couple of red spots on my upper legs, and small itchy bumps on my arm.

My feet also seem swollen.

My acne (which I've had ever since I started the andrographis) also got really bad at the same time. Other than the strange rashes, and a little bit of fatigue, I'm not getting other symptoms. I am pretty sure this is not an allergy, and I don't think I've got any new tick bites. I haven't changed anything I'm doing. The things that seem to help are resting and putting antibiotic ointment on it.

Could this be ringworm or something else like that or could it be dormant Lyme suddenly becoming active? I haven't gotten a rash like this before.

I would suspect the andrographis. It is known to cause hives and other skin reactions.

Other than that, bartonella is also known to cause various skin manifestations.

I assume that a knowledgeable doctor (especially an OLD doctor) would probably be able to tell if it's ringworm. I doubt if any doctor would be of much help if it's one of the other 2.

Bumps , lumps, rashes that come and go, and especially weird rashes could be Bartonella.

Lyme erythema-migrans can also come in go in some people. I had that happen many times after my Epsom salt baths.

Here is some info: jemsekspecialty.com/erythema-migrans/

The red oval rashes could be an EM as goshawk stated they can come and go.


Other rashes have appeared for me....over the past few years:

When I was treating bartonella, I got a rash on the top of my right foot - about 2 " in diameter that was red dots - but under the skin. It appeared in my bath...only...for about a week and then faded away.

I also had red blotches of different sizes on my back...again on Bart treatment.

Also, when doing babesia treatment I had on my torso under my breasts - that was slightly rough to the touch...

Also had (on bart treatment) a rash that was like scratches on my upper right back/shoulder area...and I don't think I scratched it...and it was in a hard-to-reach area.


Also had one when I was on lyme treatment - can't remember what it looked like..
