Does anyone else have this? I think it's caused by Babesia.

Lipomas, maybe?

If you're talking about tiny bumps under the skin, I don't think I can help with that, but if they're larger, and you can push them around a little, they could be lipomas, which are benign fatty tissue tumors -

it's possible they're walling off toxins - this is a workable theory - in other words, protective.

A leading researcher suggested people try drinking noni juice and taking grapeseed extract capsules; both are anti-inflammatory. Found at health food stores.

So I did, and my lipomas shrunk to nothing in around 3 weeks time! Then I did the obvious experiment and stopped taking the supplements and the lipomas came back.

We're all different in what we're dealing with and how we respond to any remedies, but if you're up for the adventure, you could try the noni juice and grapeseed extract capsules and see what happens. I experienced no unpleasant side effects.

They can be Lymph nodes that are swollen, these are found in many places across the body.

Bartonella causes a lot of skin issues: Moles, Subcutaneous Nodules (bumps under the skin) etc. I've often had things appear from the release of toxins.

Thanks Lymetoo, Robin and Eckoro. They're under the skin of my left leg (weak side of my body) which seems to be a magnet for a lot of my skin issues.

Last night I found them on a symptom list under Babs but I have lots of extra blood vessels that have formed (Bart) on that leg too so it may also be Bart.

Or it can be Lipomos. I'm going to see what Chlorella and anti-inflamatories do for it.

And thanks Robin. I'm going to get some noni juice and grapeseed extract capsules and try that too. Having Lyme is kind of like a tennis match. There's always something new coming at you that you need to find a solution for.

This is a bart symptom according to Burrascano:

"tender subcutaneous nodules along the extremities" (p. 24)

"Tender sub-cutaneous nodules along the extremities, especially outer thigh, shins, and occasionally along the triceps." (p.26)

For me it was what TF describes mainly on my thighs- Bart. With adequate Bart treatment they've gone away. It is a weird symptom for sure. Hang in there!

Thanks, this makes perfect sense! I also have too many blood vessels on that leg which is Bartonella.

Re Robin's post, these lumps are large, raised but fairly flat , sensitive when pressed on and warm to the touch (inflammation) and can't be moved around.

If they're large, raised and fairly flat, that does describe how lipomas present. I had a bingo with noni juice and grapeseed extract capsules, so I guess up to you if you want to try the experiment.

If you do, I find it best not to mix experimental supplements with other supplements, so I can see what is happening with the supplements I'm testing. I could see by the end of the week that the lipomas were getting a little smaller, and it took almost a month for them to disappear.

The researcher talked about MMP9s in them and that's inflammatory chemistry.

You know, it's possible, if you have a couple infections, they could each affect you a different way, so you could potentially have the bart nodules too.

I still say we go for what's going to treat, and that's an experiment.
