You are not alone. I got itchy with my very first pill and never took another one. I am allergic to Penicillin and thought maybe they were related. Are you by any chance allergic to Penicillin also?

I have not tried another antibiotic yet. I dont know if you saw my post asking about clindamycin a week or so ago. My doc is NOT lyme literate so I pretty much do the research and he gives me the prescription. What did you try after your reaction?? I dont do well with antibiotics so I am at a loss at the moment about where to turn.

Hi LV.  Make sure you let your doctor know what you experienced.  There are many different antibiotics that can treat Lyme.

I got Lymes in 2004. So did my 11 mos old daughter and my favorite dog Toto.

Hi I had an allergic reaction to Doxy. after a few weeks I started getting a rash on my chest and arms, my LD said I was allergic to the Doxy and to stop it but to continue the Bactrim since I have been taking that since Aug with no problems. He also gave me a prescription for a new antibiotic called Cedax,. So they do have other meds to help treat Lyme. I am waiting until Sunday to start that new one. Hope it works well for me.
Good luck.
