    Have any of you experienced this? I get a tiny freckle-like rash on my arms and legs when I go in the sun. I've been getting it since the onset of my illness. It is not from medication.

    It looks like hundreds of tiny freckles. Light brown in color.

    Sound familiar at all?

    Thanks for your input.

    Ya, I thought that's what they might be but they aren't really red. Can petechiae be light brown?

    Thanks for the input.

    I have had lyme for a long time.
    About three months ago, I broke out in terrible hives and went to the Dr. she didn't know what it was. I went to a dermatolgist and she asked me if I was out in the sun a lot, and I am not. She said they looked like scavies. She took a lot of blood tests and they all came back negative. I am bruised all over my arms from the scratching. The hives went away, but the itching didn't. I still get little clusters of bumps that itch like crazy. Where the bumps were, now the bumps turned brown and look like moles, fairly large ones. It is the weirdest thing. My Dr. said maybe it was coming from inside and had to do with my Lyme. She is not a lyme dr.
    Interesting......I am glad I looked on here and see others may be having the same sort of problem.
