Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.
Is the rash under the left arm still there?
yes, but it's not as red nor does it burn or itch any longer. I did use a cortisone spray on it for a few days immediately after discovering it and that helped.
So, the rash is subsiding, right?Do you have fever, headache etc?
yes, it's still there but it's not as bright red nor inflamed looking like it was. no, no other symptoms. i've been taking Doxycycl twice a day
One more possibility is a fungal rash like ring worm.
But it is too early to say anything.
I think you should continue with the doxy till you finish of the antibiotic course.
Hello, are you there?
Okay, thank you. I just thought it was 'odd' that after being on the medicine for this amount of time a SECOND rash would develop...if it was truly Lyme's
Yes, so I would like to complete the course first.
There is a possibility for fungal infection.
If it were to turn out to be ring worm, or some other fungal infection, what's the normal course of treatment?
Applying anti fungal ointment and taking oral doses, the latter if necessary.
okay, thank you for your assistance
