    After all these years, maybe I'll finally get an answer to this one...

    Anyone else get little areas of red/purple broken blood vessels? It's like I magically get sucker bites! They usually appear without warning, but are sometimes itchy when they 1st appear. I can get 3 or 4 of them at once. They are never raised rashes.

    I get them on my neck, upper arms and chest, and my thighs sometimes. It doesn't sound like the rashes I've heard described.... It's been happening for so long, I don't even question it anymore, until now that I'm looking at all my Lyme connections!

    I still get rashes with flare ups, Im just getting over a nasty rash that would come and go all day long. Mine feels like an electrical shock, than it has a small raised bump,
    turns red all around the bump and then gets hot and very itchy. I scratch so bad it does break the blood vessels and ends up looking like a hicky. Im seeing my llmd today mabey he can shed some light. Have you been tested for Lyme? What are your other symptoms? Sandie
