So, I know rashes and lyme disease are common, but im wondering about
these.... I've never gotten any rashes before so im kind of scared. I have a purplish rash ish mark on my left forearm. It looks like a bruise only its slightly raised. It doesn't itch or anything, and it doesn't hurt although it kind of looks like a burn or even a scar. Here is a pictureVIEW IMAGE
I have some scars (I used to self harm) so ignore those. Im referring to the redish blob.
I keep thinking of Steven Johnson's syndrome ;-; which is probably really silly , but I read about
it a few weeks ago and now its freaking me out a bit because it looks similar to the rashes in pictures, it doesn't itch. Ect. Also read that they typically show up on the front of legs and forearms first
Also last weekend, I got bitten by what I thought was a mosquito and the next day I had a dark spot that looked like a bruise over the bite. It was itchy. The bite looked like a mosquito bite and everything until the next day. Ill show a picture of that mark too. it is on the back of my calf, although now its nearly disappeared. That showed up before the spot on my forearm, and its why the spot on my forearm is concerning me so much.VIEW IMAGE
Can someone here tell me if they've had similar rashes or experiences with mosquito bites, whether they think this is urgent, and that I shouldn't wait to see a doctor, or if I can wait a week before I look for an appointment.
My naturopathic doctor said she's seen reactions like this with other lyme patients when they get bitten by bugs, and that she's seen spots like the one on my arm but doesn't know what they are exactly.
