I dont remember a rash, but my wife and i do remember i had a cut on my, head. I dont remember getting a cut. but it did hurt, i tend to dig at things in my hair to remove em when im working. When it was noticed by my wife it was infected, puss came out. She would dump hydroxen peroxide on it and it was very painful for a small cut. I should mention that i have extremely thick hair. I have seen pictures of the rash and at the center it looks white. could this have been what we were treating and i was digging at? I have an extremely high tolerance for external pain. thanks for any answers

I can't answer your specific rash question. Many here either never had the rash or don't remember one.

The LLMD's indicate the rash is only in 50% of cases (less for children, I think Dr. J indicates 30% of his patients remember a bite or rash).

I would recommend reading Dr. B's advanced topics in Lyme and go through the symptoms and see how you match up.

my bullseye rash was on the back of my left leg. it looked exactly like a target with red rings and then a white center. the center looked like a very large pimple and itched something crazy.

it lasted about two weeks and went away. the center never burst or anything.

do not look back when the only course is forward

Maybe .. but like Tim said .. most here never had a rash.. So nothing to worry about that maybe you didn't have one.

PS.. read all the stickies at the top of Medical... lots of info there... such as:

Lyme and Coinfections Symptom List
