It's official! Hopefully I caught it while it's still in stage one. I had a lesion on my thigh that wouldn't respond to steroid ointment, antibiotic ointment or anti fungal ointment going on 3 weeks - this morning while I was looking at it I noticed what appeared to be a white halo around the lesion then realized it was the classic bulls eye rash forming. I immediately ran to a doc n a box and they agreed with me and now I have to take doxycycline antibiotics for a month .. the worse thing is that the meds can cause really bad photosensitivity which means for the next month I'm going to have to wear socks, long plants, long sleeve shirts and gloves when I go outside and lets not forget the hat. In this heat that really sucks!!!!
Everyone keep your fingers crossed I caught it in time and the antibiotics will cure me! I'm now an official SC statistic for Lyme disease.
