What is the deal with these rashes?

I have recently been treated for a longstanding lhyme infection, both with viral antibiotics and doxy. I am getting better, but am suffering from post lyme. I had a spinal tap and had lyme in both blood stream and spinal fluid.

My question is all throughout having lyme, and after treatment these rashes on my back would appear in occurence with a "outbreak," i.e. whenever my syptoms re-appeared. I am still now, 2 months after treatment still getting these rashes occasionally. What is it? Is it just a residual allergic reaction, or is it another type of virus? I was tested for all the major tick related infections...

THey appear alover my body, but disappear within a day.

Re: What is the deal with these rashes?

How long were you in treatment? it takes more than just doxy to get the Borrellia bacteria in remission. Were you seeing a LLMD, Lyme Literate Medical Doctor??
If not it would be a good idea to get to one, sounds as though infections aren't under control.
