Ok, I mentioned the rash on my breast so I am going ahead and posting a very cropped picture

so I can get opinions on whether it looks like a Lyme rash or something else.

Next, I JUST NOW noticed that I had a cyst or nodule pop up on my right wrist. It is the same

type thing that popped up and STAYED on my left index finger 2 years ago when I first got Lyme.

The rash:

The new cyst:

Is the rash itchy?
Sometimes a rash looks more red and inflamed when it's irritated by scratching.

If it's itchy, try a dose of Benedryl.
Have you had a chance to do hot compresses?

It does itch but not enough for me to scratch it, so I haven't at all!

I did finally decide to put anti-fungal cream on this morning to see what (if anything) it will do.

Curious if anyone think this looks like a Lyme rash, it's almost taking on a bullseye look to me?

I have no clue. Please see your doctor.

In my opinion, that rash doesn't look anything like a bulls eye rash. It just looks like a typical rash from anything like anyone would get.

Also, anyone can get those cysts.

They can go away at any time. I don't think they are related to lyme.

If you are being treated for lyme, you don't have to worry about being bitten again. You are protected while you are treating lyme.

That's not true, TF!! If you get bitten again, while on treatment, you can get whatever you are not being treated for, and that includes whatever the tick may have that we aren't aware of yet, or have no tests for.

I had another bite while on rocephin, added in doxy quickly, and went downhill horribly (after just finally starting to improve before that). It turned out that I was reinfected with Babesia, and I wasn't on anything for it at the time.

I was in bad shape for a long time. I got a minor version of Bell's Palsy, too, and it never 100% went away.

Whether this is a Lyme rash or not, I don't know, but it does look a bit like a bulls-eye to me. We're not seeing it in person, however.

Thank you for the replies. The rash has finally all but gone away. Just barely visible still.

As far as the nodules ... I have one on my finger from my first bout with Lyme 2 years ago that never went away so far this wrist one has
not left either!
