Hey I've posted before about getting rashes on my face and the feeling my face is burning. Now I'm getting this on my legs and arms.

They aren't bullseye rashes. They are just regular rashes. My skin sometimes feels like its burning and feel the desire to scratch but I'm not feeling a true itch.

It is like a deep burning itch that isn't released by scratching.

I know some have said that it may be yeast but I've been treating yeast. I've also had a very sore throat for like ten weeks.

Any ideas? Can Lyme or cos cause these rash like places?

Thank you

I've been treating yeast too.. still have a yeast rash on my shoulders and neck. Some on my foot too... very weird place.

Put Lotrimin on it and see if it gets better. Then you will know if it's yeast.

PS . I also get the burning from yeast.

Yes I'm off of wheat......unless there is something hidden I'm missing.

Lymetoo, do your rashes come and go? Mine come and go within hrs. Strange I know. I get them when I'm at my sickest.

I started back on antibiotics today and if my yeast is bad then I'm scared of these antibiotics. Did the nystatin always keep it at bay for you?

And I just want to be sure that these rash like things I'm having aren't related to Lyme or cos? Just yeast? If yeast is my main problem then I don't want to continue antibiotics.

I am too sick.

Has your doctor seen the rashes?

Mine does not come and go.

Nystatin helps. I took it the whole time I was treating Lyme.

He has only seen the rash on my face so he prescribed diflucan. Was told to take it for one week every month for couple of months.

I'm not convinced its yeast then since it comes and goes. So very strange!

I had terrible rashes before I treated (for 20 years). They did not come and go... But came and stayed for months. When I first went on abx and usually when I changed I would get a rash. But they didn't last as long on the abx. Knock on wood I have not had one in over a year.

Mine would come after/during especially achy times... I don't really know...but my own thought on this is that it has something to do with die off... And many years ago, before a Lyme dx... Discovered doxycyline would get rid of these rashes in days.

It could come and go according to your diet though. One week a month on Diflucan probably is like a drop in the bucket.

Thank you. I too believe it has something to do with die off.....I'm not totally sure but when I am my sickest is when this happens.

I began azithromycin today so I pray it makes a difference.

Thank you all!

You can get rashes on the body when your body is trying to eliminate toxins. Skin brushing is something to consider.

Bartonella like-organism will make you get all kinds of strange rashes. Could be a fungus of some kind too maybe.

I get the samething Messa, with itching and burning. It worsens when I do any tx for Bart. My LLMD says it's the Bart.

When I scratch a long red,slightly raised rash appears. When I did a couple of tx's for Bartmy cheeksturned red,burning and I was itching and rashing.

I had this without abx tx,it would come and go but abx intensified it:(
