Re: What antibiotics have you taken for Lyme disease?

Has anyone noted a difference in mode and the intensity of a relapse after treatment?

Based on personal experiences and on an observation in the somewhat controversial reference below I would like to propose that Lichen Ruber (Planus) also may be incuded in rare cases. Alternatively that a borrelia induced Lichen Sclerosis et Atrophicus which is treated with corticostereoids may be a...
