Re: Is this Lyme?

I would like to welcome you also.

If you type in lyme rash and look at photos on the net, you will find examples of the lyme rash. But you do not have to have a bullseye rash. I was recently reinfected with lyme. My rash was red, slightly raised, somewhat itchy. It had somewhat of a clearing, but never looked quite like the bullseye photos. Mine was approx. 4" by 2" and lasted for about 4 wks. It can last from 1 wk to 3 or 4. I had an appointment during that time and my LLMD confirmed it was a lyme rash.

In my opinion the only one to rule in or out lyme is a LLMD.

I hope you find the answers soon. If we can help, we're here.
