My son who is 6 has now been treated for lyme going on 2 years. Before we found out he was having continual rashes on his bottom that were little red dots. They did not itch. With his Zith and Amox treatment they got much better and then when we added Mepron for babs we never saw any. He has now been off the mepron for a couple of months and they are coming back again. Is this babs again? Has anyone had this happen? Any advice appreciated! Thanks, Robin in Houston

i had/have little pinpoint dots. the ones on my face and neck went away while on doxy. after seeing multiple ducks my llmd was the only dr to notice this rash.

I have a slight rash on my stomach and back now...it does not itch either. and it comes out more in the shower.

hopefully more will come along with some answers.

You might want to think about Bart also. I would get this rash on my arms. Once I was treated with cipro for bart, the rash emerged and went away - I have not seen it since.

my son had theese and they were yeast. The anti-biotics will kill the yeast but if no pro-biotics were given the yeas may come back with a vengence after meds are finished.

Oil of oregano works great for yeast.

lots of good pro-biotics.

Are you sure it's not erlichia???
My husbnad and I tested for the #58 band on the IGNX test which is the band for HGE and had weird pinpoint rashes on us - me more one or two on arms and legs like i had been poked with a needle and him a lot around the ankles.

When present in ehrlichiosis, the rash is maculopapular and not petechial. Evidence for vasculitis is not observed in ehrlichiosis as it is in RMSF.
Physical findings with ehrlichiosis are minimal. Occasionally, slight hepatomegaly may be present.
Lymphadenopathy is observed in less than 25% of cases and splenomegaly is not common.
Patients with severe ehrlichiosis may develop thrombocytopenia or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), which can result in hemorrhage into the skin.


Maculopapular describes a rash that contains both macules and papules. A macule is a flat discolored area of the skin, and a papule is a small raised bump. A maculopapular rash is usually a large area that is red, and has small, confluent bumps. The sandpapery rash of scarlet fever, or scarletina, is the classic example of a maculopapular rash.
