    I am looking for some pictures of the lyme rash that looks like stretch marks and can't find any. Is it Babesis? Can anyone post a link to a page showing these stretch marks, which are really lyme?

    Thanks.

    Try looking up Bartonella (Bart). I think the babesia rash is more spotted than long. You can google baronella and then look up images.

    Does the rash show up with weight gain? I have this all over my body, but I've also suddenly gained alot of weight for no appearant reason.

    Thank you

    I swear that could have been my stomach.

    When I was pregnant w/my daughter, I only gained about 20 lbs. At about 6 months i had marks like that show up. I also began to go into preterm labor. My daughter was born about 2 months early.

    I think this is a possibility I need to look into again.

    Time to call the MD.
