Hello, Bartonella warriors. I’m hoping someone can relate to what I don’t think any of my MDs really gets and knows what it is. I have a swelling on my face that never goes away. It’s there all the time, not just when I have an MCAS flare. Is it possible Bart is concentrated there deep under the skin? Thank you for your time.

      Hello! I’ve also noticed inflammation and facial swelling that I believe to be connected with Bart (as well as Lyme, Babesia, and TBRF). My face seems disproportionate and I believe one side to be puffier and more uneven than the other. I recently was on a Paleo reset diet and noticed a reduction of my facial swelling, as well as more symmetrical features. I would really encourage you to try something like a Paleo reset diet for 30 days (meats, fruits, veggies only) and see if the problem rights itself - that’s a telltale way to see if the cause is Bart because a diet like that starves the disease + alleviates symptoms!
