For the past few months, can't even say how long,
my skin will itch and when I scratch it I get these little pebbly things, like grains of salt or sand.
I've mentioned it to my LLMD and he said it was detox. I've been on a med. break for awhile and still had them. It's driving me crazy.
I read something about this being from morgellons
but I don't have any other symptoms of that.
Anyone ever have this or know what it is?
Thanks

Got that, too. My doctors have never given me a suitable answer as to what it really is. Seems to be related to food sensitivites for me, although I've got way more than ever right now with Rifampin on board.
Good luck.

Be Well

I've got that, too, and I heard it also from other Lymies.

Detox could be a good explanation as the "sand grains" look to me like dried lymph liquid. I'm off abx since 8,5 months and I still get these grains.

I don't think I have Morgellons and no food sensitivities to speak of.

Phew!!
Thanks, I feel so much better.

Glad to know I'm not the only one, although it is annoying.

Can't wait for it to stop.

How are you doing Gabrielle?
Are you feeling better now?

What can I say? Some of my Lyme symptoms go away with abx and when I stop they come back over the next few months.

But when I take abx I feel generally so bad (and after so many years I don't believe this is herxing anymore) that I've decided for now that I'm feeling better with my Lyme symptoms than with my abx side effects. I might change my mind anytime, though...

I have the Fry mystery bug and as long as they don't know exactly what it is and how it can be treated I try to wait. Doing some alternative stuff in the meantime.
