Ringworm like rash

Since starting Rifampin & Mino in the last three months I've had four different types of rashes. I've noticed that one of the rashes is spreading and looks a lot like ringworm...dime size and crusty circular outside but not itching. It is actually in a hard spot to see so I really have to manuveur around with two mirrors to see it. The one spot now looks like it is actually four spots. Has anyone else had ringworm (or a ringworm like rash) come out when treating the LD & co? I picked up some Lotrimin today so we'll see if that helps.

Sorry - I don't have any answers. But I've been thinking of you lately. How are you holding up?

 

I feel like I'm slowly starting to get back to some sort of normal except with the warmer weather I'm realizing I will no longer be able to "hide" my new lack of a figure behind sweatshirts. :( The med combo was really killing me but the infection is slowly improving and I guess the bonus is that we have really been hitting Bartonella at the same time. I feel like I'm slowly seeing an improvement in those sx as well. I still get a whole lot of nothing done though! :lol:

 

Thanks for asking.

My one daughter had this one raised rash that made a trail up her forearm. Not itchy at all. After quite some time it went away. This occurred while treating. It looked like a light fungus/psoriasis type rash. Had it been itchy I would have been off to the doc.

 

Hey Dawn! I didn't realize you were treating other family members too. How is your son?

 

Your dd's rash sounds similar to mine-even your description. The lack of itching is what has also kept me from the Doc's office. I see the ID doc on Thursday so I'll ask him what he thinks.
