I was diagnosed with Lyme disease 10 days ago. I was prescribed Penicylin and have seen only a small improvement in the circular rashes on my skin. I have four rashes and they are all circular with a red ring. I am concerned that Lyme Disease was mis diagnosed. Other than the rash I had some joint pain that has since gone away. Any recomendations?

Welcome!

Keep reading here, you will learn a lot.

Also, go to www.ilads.org and read there .... especially look at the faq's and Dr. B's diagnostic hints and treatment guidelines.

Junior,

To get some advice "close to home," join the California Lyme group on Yahoo at http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/CaliforniaLyme/

There are lots of people in the Los Angeles area with Lyme!

And definitely print out & read Dr. B's guidelines.

Good luck,

Hillary

Thank you so much for your advise. I read some of the information and have realized that Penicylin is not the antibiotic of choice. Also, I should be on antibiotics for 30-45 days. I have a call into the Doctor and will probably research for a doctor that specializes in Lyme in the Los Angeles area. Any recomendations?
