Yes, Lyme is known to increase allergies for some...myself included...
My Naturopath explained it to me this way: When the immune system is lowered (and Lyme certainly lowers the immune system), it tends to become hyper-responsive and thus more likely to attack something that it wouldn't attack if the immune system was more in balance (i.e., normal/healthy).
