    Hi Greg,

    you need to talk to someone at Lyme Disease Action UK. Sorry, if I put a link my comment will be deleted. They're easy to find on Google search.

    Go to their contact us form and tell them your story, particularly mention when and where you were bitten and if you had a rash, what it looked like. Also, be specific about the meds you were given.

    The people at Lyme Disease Action are good at getting back to people and will give informed advice as necessary.

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Greg, I'll give you my two cents. If you are in nh and been tested there chances are your test will come back neg.. Did you have the bulls eye or rash?  You got on doxy soon after so keep taking it as long as your prescription says.keep a sharp eye out for symptoms.
