Hi,
I realize bart stretch marks are a sign of bart, which I do have. But for the past few weeks, every time I wake up, there are long scratch marks on my body, usually legs. They are definitely not there when I go to bed. Has anyone had this before? It literally looks like someone came in to my room and scratched me!

Usually bart marks leave a scar in my experience.

But I had some that just left some red marks (striae) for several days near my armpits. They went away leaving nothing behind.

I had rashes on my shins for about 8 months, and now they have disappeared. Not sure if this was bart. I'm not taking anything for bart. However, I am taking colloidal silver.

Scars are primarily on the back, and aren't too noticeable anymore unless I go into a hot tub.

Yes, I've had short, thin, very straight scratch marks on my fingers and hands from Bart. There one day, gone the next.

My sister used to get those on her back toward her arm pits. They looked like long scratches. We were thinking Bart.

Bart for me.

Boneset teas have worked great for me. Especially during active infection (symptoms arise)

I have those kinds of scratch marks too. Mine don't usually last too long -- just a few hours.

Sometimes I take photos just to prove to myself that I didn't imagine it b/c they are just so odd.

I am convinced mine are due to Bart which I have been diagnosed with.
