Evolution of a suspicous rash - lol
Thanks Andy for your comment!
Following some additional reading tonight, I am even more convinced that the rash is related to Lyme Disease. Antibiotics are a typical course of action. Some recommend labwork as well to see if there are antibodies present, but it also looks like the results can be inaccurate - both early on and during later stages of the disease. It seems that if treated early on that the disease can be held at bay and/or eliminated completely. Perhaps jumping right into antibiotics is considered to be a bit extreme to some people, but it is an easy enough thing to do and makes the most sense to me given my situation. I'm not interested in waiting for lab results that may not even be accurate while this rash on my leg continues to grow in size and take on a life of it's own - LOL :eek:
In the meantime, it is DEET based bug repellant for me. I might stink when I am around, but I will have a greater chance of being rash-free :p
