Actually there are a couple of things which can cause this sort of problem. The first one is definitely the lyme disease which could have conme back and in some cases a longer course of therapy is needed, siuch as for 4-6 weeks. This can be tested for again with the help of blood tests.

The other possibility is that this is due to another bacterial infection which is causing the problem. This can manifest itself in this manner and spread over the body. This would be dtreated with a separate antibiotic rather than doxycycline. It could be an atypical infection other than lyme disease, there are many rickettsial infections which can present in this manner.

Lastly it can be an allergic reaction which can cause this sort of problem. An allergic reaction can manifest itself in many ways. If this is the case then using OTC antihistamines would be necessary like zyrtec, claritin or benadryl.

But IF the rash is NOT spreading, if he does NOT have a fever, IF he is NOT short of breath, IF he does not feel severe bodyaches then he can wait till morning when you can take him to the doctor, if he DOES have these additional symptoms then you can take him to the ER. But right now DO give him the antihistamines.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
