Red Skin "Scratches"
For a couple of months now I've had lesions on my skin that look like a small "bite" with a fine red streak leading from it and also thicker looking red "scratches" that appear spontaneously and then fade over a day or two. The "bites" sometimes appear in pairs approximately a 1/4 inch apart with the streak connecting them. These generally appear on areas of skin on the arms, hands and feet. In addition, sometimes I notice areas of skin that just crack open and ooze.  I've been checked by both my primary MD and a dermatologist who are both convinced it's NOT scabies. Just in case, I did treat myself more than once with scabicides, but to no avail. I've read about Bartonella and don't know if this or something related could be the cause.  I do have a cat, but she shows no symptoms or signs of any infestations.  All I know is that these lesions are REAL and I can't explain them. Any suggestions?
