I have not had a real p[roblem with rashes thus far. But lately, I am finding tiny little bumps on my fingers. It looks almost like poison Ivy blisters, but they aren't blisters.
I would post a pic, but I don't think they would register in a digital photo. It's more something you feel.

At first I thought it was poison Ivy, and then it kept popping up on different fingers. It doesn't itch terribly, or constantly. Just enough to be annoying.

Is this Bart? I started new drugs 3 weeks ago. I have been herxing pretty wildly. Maybe everything is going nuts....

Anyone?

I get those too. They look like little blisters, but when I prick them with a pin, nothing comes out. (I know I shouldn't do that, but I couldn't help it)

I don't know what they are either. I plan to ask my LLMD when I see him at the end of the month.

I would love to see pictures. Anyone else have Bart rashes & the red small vascular molds/bumps (petechiae).

I had been overweight and have stretch marks on the side of my stomache, on side of legs and arms some. I wonder now if this is Bart too? I had small red dots for years that would come and go on my torso. They usually flare up during the summer, when it would get hot and I would be sweaty. They would go away during the fall and winter, leaving only a very few if any behind. Some had become permanent scars that I have had forever.

I wonder if there is any credence to this being Bart? I have had an increase in the torso and it has spread to other parts of my body for the first time ever, while I was being treated for the first time.

My husband gets those bumps on his fingers. They come and go. We believe it is from bartonella. This is the infection we are both currently fighting.

I have something like that too. There is an itchy patch on my finger and you can see small raised bumps within the rash. Something else I have noticed is I have had a bunch of skin tag looking things pop up almost over night and some of them itch, I too wonder if it is bart!!

I have those little red spots at different places on my body and a few papules that are elevated above the skin, they look like a small blood blisters

My doc took one look at them and said it was bart

My wife also developed them and she has bart also

I went to a lyme conference recently and I was talking to a few people after the meeting and they all had those little red spots

The one older man had them all over his arm and legs

I saw them and ask him if he was being treated for bart, He did not know that those spots were related to bart

These bumps went away and formed dry skin/ scabs. Has this happened with anyone else?

Ha! Yes, I used to get them just about every bartonella flare. My flares were pretty predictable, and like clockwork I'd get the good ole "finger bump."

You're not alone, and it's definitely bartonella!

Thanks everyone for your input.

Olive, did your bumps dry up and scab over?
