I woke up and found this all over my arm. Looked it up & found it is linked with Lyme.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
So embarrassing makes me look like I am 90. Though I have felt this way for 20yrs. Now catching up, still have this God awful disease. Arghhhhh.
Hugggssss to all in need.....

I think it's Babesia. Search Lymenet Topics: "Red Pin Point (Petechiae): BABS or Bartonella?" post. There are several answers about it.

Hi, These are not just those red dots.
This is also inch long & 1/2 inch wide like bleed under your skin something like bunch of blood blisters.
I have bunch those red dots on stomach doe`s not bother me.
This is ugly. From what have found need blood work to see if low platelets which can be dangerous for those of you that may have this type.
Need to make another appt. what`s new?
Just had MRI for the shocks & bunch other tests that all they tell me due to Lyme & NO 1 on my health ins. can help. Like I do not know that.
Said back to ID doc. but you have to be hospitalized to see 1 on this plan.
Except for 1 doc. I saw who no longer is on plan basically he treated AIDS.
DO look up Petichia (not sure of spelling). It shows the large spots along with small 1`s diff. than think what you mean.
Thanks, Huggssss to all in need.
