I had a huge bite on the back of my arm about 6 weeks ago.  The bite went away with peroxide and a cold pack.  Now today I'm getting strong pain originating from the exact spot where my bite was--not in my other arm either,  just the one where the bite was.  Is this normal?
I've been on Doxy for about a week,  by the way,  for another bite which showed up a few weeks ago that was confirmed for Lyme.  Yeah I know the meds should have been started sooner but I had to dump my doc and find another one to get help.
So has anyone else had pain show up at a later date where your bite was after its been gone a long time?  Im pretty new to this so any input would be helpful thank you so much.

Hi strongmom,

Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry I don't have an answer about whether or not your experience is "normal", but I can tell you that I am never surprised about ANYthing that happens with these crazy infections! I hope your treatment goes well and your recovery is swift. At least you got a good start and have a fighting chance to become well. Best wishes, bablymers mom
