Lyme Rash
Aug 18, 2016
Hello-
I went to the Dr on day 2 of my rash which I noticed was expanding and started antibiotics right away. It has been 5 days and the rash continues to expand and is now feeling a bit itchy. My questions are:

How long can I expect the rash to spread?
Is it normal to spread on antibiotics?

My rash spread and spread for weeks; it started at my ear where the bite was, spread to my fingers, then to the other ear, then to my waste and legs, and finally to my feet and that's where it stayed for months and I was on antibiotics; in the winter it was not so bad but the rash came back the next summer. I have had luck with hot poultices of coffee and peroxide (get a good robust coffee if you can but any coffee works) and also have had luck with washing with sodium laurel sulfate plus orange oil -- the latter is supposedly rich in collage; IMO lyme cuts oxygen to collagen hence the rash and without oxygen your skin starts to dry and die.
