Another question I haven't found an answer to.

Once I started getting sick I would periodically notice a tiny (the size of an eraser tip) purplish,reddish, brown bruise here and there. They don't hurt. I wasn't hit. They mostly appear on the inside of my arms and legs. I did notice one on my stomach,right under my rib cage, before. I've proven negative for lupus, MS, etc. Does anyone get these? Is this a symptom of lyme or a co-infection symptom?

I have a lot of Molluscum contagiosum, they look like moles and are contagious, particularly to people battling other infections. They start out for me looking like moles, a little redder or more pink. Some are flat. When they go away they leave annoying tiny bruise like marks wherever they where.

When they showed up in between my legs I got really worried that they were herpes or some STD. Here, they have defined white cores that can b pulled out. This is charactertistic of the infection I am talking about.

Keep us updated. Goodluck.

Hope that help, but you may be having a different issue. Maybe you should see a dermatologist like I did.

Yes. Mine look nothing like those I looked up mentioned by mixxter. They are exactly as you've described them. Perfectly round and they appear in odd places and out of the blue without any apparent injury.

I once had a perfect circle ring come up composed entirely of little round circles. LLMD took pics but didn't give me any explanation for them. I'll probably see them in a medicAL textbook about 25 years from now...

I used to have those as well. I described them as you do- the size of a pencil eraser.

They would just stick around 2-3 days and then vanish, not like a bruise fades to yellow.

I have not had these in many months, so maybe they are related to Lyme and/or Bart.

My husband has gotten these. Round deep colored bruises that take forever to resolve. They are not painful and don't fade, just disappear.

I used to get them all the time-just as you described, just chugging along,my LLMD said that sometimes Lyme shows up as a bruise rash.
I would have multiple ones that even formed a circle-mostly on the inside of my legs.
It was just something noted.
And as someone said- I always had a low white cell count- so I don't know if that is related.

I have not actually been diagnosed yet. (I am going through the process) But Thats what was happening to me.

I got them under my arms ( the area between the elbow and armpit) They were perfectly round, the size of a pencil eraser and a very BLUE.

They appeared one morning on the left arm and was goin by the evening.

Than the next day it was on my other arm. Nowhere else????

BUT I had went to my hemotologist the next week b.c of them and my platelets and white cells were fine????
