I have a new rash on my face I've never seen before. It's inflamed and goes sort of purple and patchy and sometimes my eyes swell up. itches on my forehead, neck, above my eyebrows, etc.

It's kind of like having rosacea only I have never had it before and I'm not really eating or doing anything "new" -- no different food or anything.

Does this track with any co-infection anyone knows of?

No, actually I stopped taking everything except my usual supplements.

Allergic reaction to something, ok.

Thanks!

Even foods can be suspect.

In my first year of lyme, when I didn't know I had lyme.
My face was pure red, wasn't itchy or sore but was very red and I would shave only about every 4 days because of bad hygene and fog set in rapidly.(I used to shower , shave every day)

Stepping back to when I was well I would take one disposable razor and shave my face ... I might even get two shaves from one razor when I was well.

After lyme I would shave my face and it took me two razors to get through my bearded area.... after half my face was done the blade was dull and I would need another razor to finish the second side of face. So what the heck !

Im sure I was all candida and yeast for sure back then with Lyme and probably some mold for good measure.. I think it was on my face.
(and other areas)

Just a side note ...I was suicidal for ten days at this same time... something took me over and it was not nice.... Ten days prayer kicked that rat to the curb. Thank God that hasn't returned.

But anyway myself like others here must have the weirdest symptoms to talk about! Like totally weird. I would love to have a weird symptom link here....I would declare myself the winner right now but somehow I doubt it...given the company [Smile] but I have a few storys.....

Thanks for listening to the blathering...

And also thanks for the nice replies to my earlier questions from some nice people here...

YA I think rashes are a part of lyme ... and YA WIERD rashes for sure for sure.

Actually TF -- YES.

Seemed to happen both times with something that had bleach in it. But that was weeks ago...

I've seen the swollen eyes and itching, etc. in a person who used a new hair dye.

Rosacea was a huge issue for me when I was first diagnosed. I had all the symptoms you described, and, like you, these were all new to me.

I did try some over the counter remedies, but nothing seemed to work.

Thankfully, as I got better, that symptom also improved. But it did take time.

I think rosacea comes from bacteria in the gut and that's why it can sometimes be cured by antibiotics. All brand new -- my skin six months ago wasn't flawless but it was basically all one color.

I'm going with that for now and waiting it out [Smile] .
