Hi. I'm new and I decided to get on this forum (don't really know how it works, so be patient with me.) Anway, I have been sick for a looooonnng time. Finally got Lyme diagnoses 18 months ago. I had skin lesions all over my body, couldn't walk half the time due to the pain in my ankles, couldn't think, couldn't snap out of depression, blah, blah, blah. Tons of antibiotics and supplements. Anyway, what I am curious about is if anyone out there gets chronic skin rashes and itching even after two years of antibiotics. (My doc put me on antibiotics before she figured out I had Lyme because of my lesions. ) I still feel like bugs are crawling on me and I itch and my hand looks like I burned it. Do you guys have super sun sensitivity being on tons of anitbiotics, too? I do not want to live like a vampire, but every time I tell myself that I am going to live a normal life and not worry about sun, I get weird stuff like my pores bleeding and really red and then only my left hand gets red and itchy and now spots have gone up my arm. Does anyone deal with this? I feel like a freak.
I feel so much better in so many other ways like my energy and organizational skills are starting to come back. The pain is much better, but this skin stuff has got to go. Just wondering if anyone else deals with these specific skins problems and what they did about it.
