Can a Lyme rash be small? Central clearing in the middle, red around it like a ring but not expand and a little smaller than a quarter?

Yes, it can be exactly how you explained it. Here are some pictures:

It can really be that small? Looked at the pics, doesn't resemble mine. It burns like the rash I had a few years ago. Don't see a bite mark but is clear in the center. Just small, in the crease under the arm ughhh
took a picture of it

Hi Lovelabs
Are you still doing your Bicillin shots? I am week 13 I think, I can't remember now. I'm on zithromax and tried flagyl too but that put me under the weather to much so I stopped. My energy is up, but still I have bad pooping spells. On a plus not, my gut as far as bloating is much better. I'm working on killing the lyme's and phenomia bacteria.
I'm going to ask the doc about  stopping the shots, I'd think I would be so much futher along than where I'm at. It's frustrating. I haven't had a form stool in 5 years, all mush and going back and forth for over a hour every morning is my daily routine. Sometimes is just bloody skin. I don't go all day and in the morning I go and go and go and it's painful. I think I have bad yeast in my colon/gut as well.
I'm into two solid months of antibiotics, my energy is up, but my gut isn't much better and also I had to start my ulcertive colitis medication too :(
Hope you're doing better.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I  Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics (for 10 days here and there), not much better. Supplements: No UC meds at this time. Started Doxy and Cedfinir too rough on stomach, stopped those.Started Bicillin injection 1/12/10, once a week of injections.On Zithromax and Flagyl as well, about 2 year protocol to rid myself of bacteria Babesia, Chylmadia Phenomia and Borresliosis. Taking Oxy Aloe Flush and liquid vitamins, curcumin and CO Q10
