I am a 25yr old male and was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in the beginning of July 2010.
My Dr. started me on 3 weeks of doxycyclin but after a few days I broke out in hives and swollen lips/face which lead them to believe it was an allergic reaction.
After trying a few antibiotics and consulting an allergist I tried doxycylin again and had no reaction to it.
I finished the doxycyclin and since July have had spuradic break outs of hives, swollen lips/face/chin which landed me in the ER over 7 times.
These break outs occur at all different times and there is no pattern to them.
I live in the north west corner of Illinois so I am seeking a Dr. here, Iowa, or Wisconsin.
