I look at your posts occasionally and saw this. You poor thing.
When I get a spider beetle bite it looks like that. My foot swelled so much that I couldn't even wear an ugg boot to work. Once I got back on abx it got better but I see you have been in treatment for awhile.
For me that reaction was likened to a weakened immune system. I realize that doesn't exactly make sense because swelling and such is a hyper immune response but once I started the abx and even now after abx treatment I still get bites (including the spider beetle) and they swell to the size of a quarter and thats it. No whole foot swelling thank goodness.
I don't really have any suggestions as it seemed nothing helped for me. Eleuthrococcus senticus is supposed to be a good immune booster. Astragalus is contraindicated in late stage lyme according to Buhner but my herbalist doesn't think it is and vitamin shoppe and even some pharmacies like rite aid now carry it.
Poor lymie. I'm sending you healing wishes!
