I've had bumps (like size of mosquito bites or zits) that itch, usually one or a few at once (usually on face or neck)

Ive had smaller bumps that itch, usually clustered together in like 3-4 (anywhere--feet, stomach, neck...)--these will get darker red and stop itching in a few days.

I've had just a somewhat sensitive sensation on hand or finger, maybe slightly painful due to sensitivity or slightly burning. This can last for many many months.

Is this the lyme, co infec, candida, and/or the effects of treatment for these things? I think all my lyme doc said was it could be lyme.

(I feel like I'm a bother w/my questions for them. One in particular can act like 'how dare i call her'; the other, even w/an urgent issue, seems to wait to answer me.)

I have had ACA dermatitis. Here's a link. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrodermatitis_chronica_atrophicans. I treat it by taking Pregnenolone

and using Desitin Maximum Strength cream topically whenever it tries to come back. You can also google Bartonella Rash Pictures.

6Hypnone, within the past week, me, you, silverwolf, sickofthepain, and lymeboy have all developed a rash.

Bizarre.

Hope you and the rest of us with rashes stop itching soon!

Just throwing this thought out there, it sounds just like eczema. And it would be common to flare a bit and bother you more during colder, dryer, winter air.

What really helps me is CeraVe SA cream (I love it and apply it everywhere!) daily. This is over the counter, found at places like Walgreens and target. My dermatologist recommended it.

Well Ive had the smaller bumps I think in August, the ones in clusters.
The larger ones on my neck, face I've had recently, and in the summer.

The sensitive parts initially started in May I think. And have stayed (going a way twice for a couple days, then coming back and staying)

I have a new sensitive area w/in the last week on top of my hand and on fingers on the other.
It doesn't seem temp is a factor.

When I initially went to the derm for the itchies (which were around my mouth, also skin was very dry, and in summer) she didnt know what it was and just gave me steroids, which I didnt apply or take.

Does this help narrow anything down?
