my upper arms are so itchy I even scratched in my sleep. They are also red with a small rash.

So should I stop all my abx and see if it's an allergic reaction or is it yeast?

I'm on zith which I've been on for 3 months with no problem, started Flagyl 2 weeks ago and then switched to mepron on monday.

But I've taken Mepron before and had no reaction.

Any advice?

I also took diflucan yesterday night with everything else, and the itching started a few hours after I took everything.

Is your skin dry? That's what happened with me. I don't know if it's the TBD or just getting older.

Yeast?? The diflucan may have caused die-off.

I'm thinking it's probably a yeast die off too, from the Flagyl. Thanks

Here are my ramblings on the itching:

I have intense itching on arms, sometimes legs, it literally jumps from spot to spot. If I give in and itch, it FLAMES harder.

Last LLMD appt., I speak of this, and how I had been 'not feeling so great, at all.'

Doc says: Skin is largest detox organ. You can either up your detox (binders 2x a day) or perhaps we should slow down treatment.

I take binders 2x a day now- and skin brush, Epsom salt bath every night, which is a big sweat session- not fun.

It is a little better.

I watched Dr. B's video 'Putting Lyme Behind You.'
When he speaks of his exercise protocol, he says the Lyme bugs like to hang out right under the skin.

I don't have joint pain, but I do have this under the skin itch malady.
Wish I had the energy to weight exercise- maybe soon I hope.

I bought natural anti itch cream- Eh. Maybe helps a tiny bit.

Might be liver toxicity...?

FYI - http://www.fungusfocus.com/html/prescription_fungal_drugs.htm

Look under "Azoles".
