I am kind of freaking out here. No lie, last night I had a dream that I had a bullseye rash on my leg then this morning I woke up at 4am and could not get back to sleep. When I finally got out of bed I noticed a bug bite on my leg that was not itchy or red now it is getting a small red ring surrounding the bite. I am worried because last year when I had a bullseye rash my first symptom was insomnia. Just to be cautious I have been applying bentonite clay mixed with andrographis and I also have 28 days of mino left 200mg tablets should I take those or is there any other natural supplement that I could start with? The antibiotics worry me since I have an ongoing issue with candida already. I do have some samento left thought. I went for a walk in a cemetery on saturday with lots of fallen leaves but never saw any ticks or other bugs. I it was something like a spider that bit me is there a certain protocol for that? I know it sounds to crazy to be true so do you think that I am overreacting?Please help if you can.
Japanese Knotweed also helps with candida, just an FYI.
I don't understand why doxycycline is prescribed for this. It's a bacteriostatic abx which means that it just starves it as opposed to killing it off with something like amoxicilin. It hides from doxy anyway if it get's chronic. So take no chances and use whatever you have available to ensure you're health!
How long is borrelia's life cycle/ reproductive cycle?
Life cycle is 3 weeks.
Doxy is still the go-to antibiotic for acute lyme.
