The Rash of Lyme Disease
Bull's Eye - Erythema Migrans(EM)
Other symptoms may appear at the same time as the rash:
rash varies considerably in different people and may not always
have the characteristic clearing in the middle. It may range from a fraction
of an inch to many inches in diameter. It may be colored anywhere from
a mild red to a deep purple. It may appear in a few days, several weeks
or a year after the bite. The rash may spread to other areas of the body,
or there may be additional rashes far from the primary one. The classic
Lyme rash has concentric areas of lighter and darker colors and expands
with time, but the rash is not always in a target bull's eye form.
Dark-skinned people may develop a rash
that resembles a bruise.
In some cases, a single bite can cause
rash to occur on several areas of the body and can take on the appearance
of eczema, hives, poison ivy rash, sun burn or have the appearance of ringworm.
The rash may or may not itch or feel hot and may come and go over the course
of several weeks. Typically it is flat, but some people have raised areas
or bumps in the rash. Unfortunately, not everyone develops a rash and many
people fail to notice it especially if it is in a hard-to-see location,
such as the scalp.

The symptoms mimic a flu;
Fever, headache, muscle, and joint pains, tingling or numbness, and/or
Doctors with experience in treating
Lyme disease often prescribe no less than four to six weeks of antibiotic
treatment for a tick bite with a bull’s eye rash. If your Medical doctor
does not agree with this approach, it may be prudent to search for a Lyme
literate Naturopathic doctor who will support extended treatment or begin
treatment to eradicate the infections completely and quickly.
Homeopathic/Naturopathic doctors tend
to attack not only with eradication of the infections, but with the strengthening
the immune system.
It is very important to stop this infection
as quickly as possible.
Early Lyme can produce a wide
range of symptoms, or no symptoms at all, and is different in each person.
The varied symptoms may change rapidly, sometimes within hours. The first
symptoms may disappear in a few days or a week (even without treatment),
or may be so minor that the infected person barely notices them.
Lyme disease infection (from tick bite)
usually occur during the spring through to late fall. Even if these initial
symptoms subside, the bacteria can remain in your body and may harm you
later. In other cases, symptoms become increasingly severe, requiring prompt
Chronic Lyme disease, symptoms
are most often severe fatigue, pains that seem to have no obvious cause,
neurological and some cognitive problems. The disease may involve multiple
body systems. Symptoms may be complicated by other tick-borne confections
acquired from the same tick bite or another tick bite.
long time ago, I remember having a classic target bull’s eye rash, but
was never tested for Lyme because my provincial government said there was
absolutely no Lyme here and I had never traveled to a Lyme endemic area.
Medical doctor said it was impossible to get Lyme here. Recently I was
finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, yet I still feel as if there is more
to it than that.
No, no, no! Leaving
Lyme Disease untreated, can be devastating. There are few conditions
that mimic the Lyme Disease EM skin rash. (You can find images of
different shaped Lyme disease rashes on the Internet. Few are exactly the
same.) Lyme literate doctors suggest to start antibiotic treatment immediately
before waiting for tests and regardless of the results of the tests. Medical
doctors often mistake tick bites for spider bites, but spider bites are
actually uncommon. Lyme Disease should be seriously considered before a
doctor denies antibiotic treatment. Best to do the home treatment as soon
own experience was: When I asked the pharmacist
to suggest a salve for what I suspected to be ringworm on my inner arm.
The pharmacist told me I should see an MD as it appeared to be an insect
bite. Since it may have been just a little insect bite I saw no absolutely
no reason to take time off work to run to the doctor. My belief system
at the time was that itsy bitsy bite's were not something to run to a medical
doctor about as the body would heal itself. I am not sure how long the
rash lasted, but it couldn't have lasted very long. I totally forgot about
it until I started researching Lyme disease twelve years later. Knowing
what I know today, I certainly would have paid BIG attention to that rash.
My ignorance cost me twelve years of wages, much much pain, etc. etc. etceteras.

Often a person suffering from
unsuspected chronic Lyme disease will be diagnosed as having something
else, such as Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Lupus,
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Raynaud's Syndrome,
Carpal tunnel syndrome, Ménières syndrome, Sjogren's syndrome,
early ALS, early Alzheimer's disease, Temporomandibular joint disorder
(TMJ), Juvenile Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Reactive Arthritis, Infectious
Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Crohn's Disease, Cystis, Gastroesophageal Reflux
Disease, heart disorders, psychiatric disorders (bipolar, depression, etc.),
Sleep disorders, Thyroid disease and over three hundred other illnesses.
The Borrelia bacteria has been linked
to diseases that comprise over 2 million in Canada, many physical chronic
illnesses of 'unknown origin' and a wide variety of psychological or psychiatric
disorders which collectively cost the taxpayer billions of dollars in medicare,
disability, etc.. It falls on you to decide if you want to be tested or
treat your own self. You may order a test and hope it can lead to treatment.
Or, you may want to forgo the test and immediately begin Homeopathic/ Naturopathic
consultation with a lyme literate doctor or practitioner to immediately
begin restoring your health.
Or, you can do the Low
Life Test and if you experience a Herxheimer reaction you will know
you have a pathogen in you that does not belong in there.
