Thank You; I am spending 50 dollars for a taxi to the next town to pick up my Doxycycline today because I found and pulled out another tinier tick embedded in my thigh yesterday!!!! My ear is not as badly inflamed today, but is still red with blisters, and itches. I feel warm but have no fever or headache. The side of my face and the lymph node in my neck is sore and swollen. I think I got the whole tick out. Is there any further advice anyone can give me about
taking the Doxy? I was allergic to amoxicillian. I have also been dealing with contact dermatitis and skin allergies. I do every spring and summer. The doctor is only giving me 100MG Doxy twice a day for 10 days. Guess I am a little worried about
taking the doxy because of how others have reacted to this drug. What choice do I have right now but to take this drug? Also, when should I ask my Doc for a blood test for these tick bites? I heard this disease will not show up in blood work too soon after the bite. Also, will the Prednisone 10MG tablet the doctor prescribed for me, stop my ear from itching? Thanks.
