Does this sound familiar to anyone? I tried to post a pic but couldn't figure out how. sad

It's on my lower left back. One nickel size roundish one, and then a few small oval ones nearby. It is a dull red. Not rough. I first noticed it in an epsom bath a few days ago when the area started burning. I don't think the rash was there yet. It doesn't itch or hurt.

I haven't taken any new antibiox. A couple of new herbs and something called DIM my LLMD recommended (not for lyme). Could it be an allergic reaction? Or another bart symptom?

Could be allergic reaction.

I have grandkids that have eczema. My daughter had it too. I always wondered where they got it. When I got lyme all of a sudden I got a nickle sized patch here and there.

I figure I am a carrier for eczema if that is possible.

I think I was always able to keep eczema hidden, but lyme let it come out. Now it is gone again as I healed. Weird.

I have had red migrans reappear months after beginning treatment and usually after an Epsom salt bath. Mine was in the upper middle of my back and always reappears in the same area. mine was a bit itchy.

I believe in the third paragraph of this article below it tells about this occurring.

Take care, Jo

My LLMD that had lyme got rashes all over his torso. He didn't have a bull's eye but had rashes. He said that they would go away and come back again some place else on his body.

I was going to post the same article that Jo posted. It is a good one.

So yet another sign the lyme is still there? I did have bad muscle aches which is mentioned in the article. It sounds like I should continue with current plan, but I'm not getting in another bath until they are gone. It even burns a little in the shower!

Raw skin.... be careful of perfumy stuff on it or rough cloth. Cotton would be my go to blouse.
