2 days ago I discovered a bullseye rash on my lower back, I felt some back pain like a bruise and let my girlfriend have a look.
A bruise would actually make perfect sense as we went kayaking the day before and my lower back has been rubbing against the kayak seat.
But looking on the Internet it looked similar to the lyme bullseye rash, so I got a bit concerned.
I am in Southern Thailand and was in Malaysia before, I do a lot of hiking and sometimes without shirt.
Lime disease is supposed to be nonexistent here, so the doctors won't be familiar with lyme disease. But I'm not so sure about the nonexistence of lyme disease, it might just be underreported, their health system is quite different(and people don't go for every little problem to a doctor).
We've been making pictures and the bruise/rash seems to be fading and not expanding, so I was a bit relieved.
Until today I found 2 red spots on my side, what might indicate a spreading infection.
I have the habit of measuring my heart rate variability every morning and it's been a bit lower than usually, but nothing extreme, don't know if it's useful information.
I don't notice any of the other symptoms like headache, fatigue etc.
I might be overreacting and it could be just a bruise and coincidentally 2 (mosquito) bites that appeared.
I hope anyone can help me, cause I know if it's lyme, it's pretty serious and I have to start antibiotics immediately.
