Ok, so, I had a skin biopsy and they said it is skin scleroderma. Three years ago, they had a few questions in there such as a t cell skin lymphoma and lyme. The rash has faded on it's own a bit. I did have a tick bite 15 years ago but it wasn't attached for 24 hours. I do have joint pain and fatigue. So my question is: do you think I can rest assure that I don't have lyme?
Thanks to the folks who have been so helpful to me these past few weeks.

Hi jeanneac,

It is very hard to say if it could be Lyme or not. Everything I have learned suggests that Lyme can resurface even after being bit 15 years ago. The best thing you can do is see a knowledgeable doctor.

Yea, also I want to get a CD57 test, my insurance will pay for that. It's a good start. The closest lyme doc to me is a few hours away. I am shocked there isn't one in Jacksonville Florida as big as the city is.
