Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Two weeks ago, a red itchy rash began on my upper arm. Within a week, I had several similar areas on my arms, legs, stomach. My doctor diagnosed poison ivy and gave me steroid cream. Since then, the rash has spread even more. It is incredibly itchy and mostly on my upper arms, thighs and stomach. Several days ago the initial rash on my upper arm resembled a bulls-eye. I somehow remembered that I had read about these rashes before as a sign of Lyme. I saw my doctor this morning, and when I questioned her, she dismissed Lyme disease, since I currently have no other symptoms (aside from the rash) and I "haven't been out hiking lately." She gave me a fungal cream and told me to call a dermatologist if it didn't help. Could I have Lyme without any other symptoms? I live near Austin, Texas.
