Has anyone ever experienced any one of these after diagnosis or after starting treatment?
The past couple of weeks, I had what I thought were pimples starting on the side of my head, in front of my ear, right in front if the Tragus. After a bit of research, I found that the proper anatomy of whatever this is that I believe that it is affecting is called the preauricul. As I said, it started off as what I thought was to be a pimple, but after two weeks, growing moderately in size and becoming bright red it was quite apparent that this was not the case.
Here comes gross part. In the last couple of day's, it had started to scab over. It became itchy and after giving it a light scratch....boom went the volcano. The thing is i feel one starting in the exact same spot on the other side of my head.
I have had trouble with my Sinus' and having ear pressure in the past in which my LLMD believes can be attributed to the Lyme - yes ive been to see two ENTs and they cant seems to find anything wrong.
I thought to myself, with the amount of abx I'm on that this couldn't possibly be some sort of infection. Has anyone seen this before? Could it be a herx? This is what it looked like. There was no pain associated with it unless i touched it. VIEW IMAGE
BTW; Amongst other things, Ive been on ABX since the end of January starting with 200mg doxy DIB twice per day & 250mg Biaxin DIB twice per day. Seeing as it's summer and that I had a severe reaction due to the sun, my LLMD recently changed up my treatment to 250 Azithromycin twice per day and APO-Sulfatrim 800&160 twice per day.
