so from time to time I get red streaky rashes all over my chest they come and go, they are about 3 inches long and 1/2 thick.

Question is I think these indicate bartonella specifically, does anyone know if that's correct?

The only thing I found w/bart you can have stretch mark like rashes, I guess there like stretch marks, but I wouldn't describe them as such.

ok thank you

The description you are giving certainly sounds like a bartonella rash, especially how thick it is.

Here are a few photos:

You can see why people describe them as looking like stretch marks. But, you get them in places that stretch marks make no sense--behind the knees, or on the chest as you say.

If you want to post a picture, we can see what you are talking about. But, if you have lyme, it is almost certain you have bartonella and the red streaks are bart rashes.

ok thank you, yes I think it's the same, and to think my doc told me I don't need to be tested for bart and the meds you are on will cover it. ridic. and I have many other symptoms as well, heel pain..etc.
