Hi. Its ages since I last posted. Right now I am ill. I am being tested for Lyme disease. I have had lichen sclorosis and lichen planus for many years. I saw a private consultant (for the Lyme) yesterday who told me there was a connection between Lyme and Lichen. I have since checked and there appears to be some clinical evidence that supports this(just google the connection between lichen sclorosis and lyme disease). I became ill after a tick bite on the Moors 3 years ago. However the consultant said it was likely another bite that did this from years ago that I got in the USA and whcih had laid dormant until awakened by the tick bite 3 years ago. Right now I can hardly lift my arms and things are not looking good. What does the lichen group make of the connection..and can anyone remember having a funny rash or getting bit? My brain is over cooking.
