My sixteen-year-old daughter has lyme and multiple co-infections. One of the many troubling symptoms is a rash that has developed on the back of her head, in the upper neck area near her hairline. Dermotologists believe it to be either psoriasis or eczema. I believe it to be the site of the original bite. There is a rash that looks like a bull’s eye. It has recently been spreading throughout the hairline and is very itchy and red especially after exercise. She has not been on antibiotics for well over a year and is rifing and sees a naturopath. What would you suggest she do for the rash that appears to be spreading? Thank you.
Well, it could be a bull’s eye rash, they sometimes tend to recur in later stage lyme. Irrespective of that, treating that kind of rash is often difficult because it is in the hair. Here are a few suggestions. If it does not clear up, contact me again in a month or so.
Biosil 6-20 drops daily in water or juice
Glucosamine sulphate 500 mg 3x daily
Zinc picolinate with copper (if you can find the combination) 20-30 mg daily
