Hi!  Please help!!! I've been looking for a Lyme Specialist. I found some round small rash under my armpit and along the beltline in my hips. I'm worried.  i've been to the forest preserve and may have been bitten by a tick. i've learned that early detection can help in the treatment of lyme disease.  So please help.  you may know a good lyme doctor.  I'm still new with this forum, please bear with me. thanks and have a blessed day.

Hi mommydear, welcome to the board!

Do your rashes resemble a bulls-eye?  Although only about 50% of people who have Lyme ever get a rash, a bulls-eye rash is a definite sign of Lyme disease.  The rash alone merits treatment.  If you still have the rashes, be sure to get photos of them.  It is important documentation.  Place something near them like a coin or ruler before photographing to give them size definition.

Here are a few sites where you can see some Lyme rashes:


You are right, early treatment is important.  Getting the proper treatment early in the infection may reduce the chance of long-term complications.  Many doctors do not understand Lyme and follow outdated treatment protocols.  You can email me at ko_@bellsouth.net for the closest doctor recommendations.  Doctor names are not posted on the board.
