I have a rash question. In the past 2 days My rash has turned from light red to a dark purply black color. Has anyone else had this happen? I have had a little improvement on the doxycycline 200mg twice a day. No more fever or headache which to me is a huge relief. I still have the muscle and joint pain, left knee swelling and fatigue. I now have the change in my rash and have left eye floaters that appeared about a week ago.
have you been tested for co-infections? Take pictures of that rash as it changes and keep a journal too. Is the rash a circle or is it stripes? There are some good pictures of lyme rashes and co-infection rashes on the internet, try to find some and maybe that will help you figure out what's going on.
hi lyme granny! the treatment for lyme is long, it depense when you catch it, within 4 weks, the dosis of doxy is a month or 6 weeks, if you have it longer that that, it can be months, years...so is normal to have all those pais, after a year, i still have them, have improve, but still have them...i had the rash, it laste the first one, like 2 weeks, thet i got as soon it was fadding, a new one, and then a new one... i had like 5, so i had them in total like 2 months, and after that got many small ones in different shapes and colors that were driving me crazy!!! the whole situacion lasted like 6 or 7 months and got better after a while of doxy... so hang out there
