Palm/Sole Lesions: Unlikely, but consider rocky mountain spotted fever. It says you are on Doxycycline so they are still treating for lyme even though test was negative. What if this is simply urticaria (hives) and angioedema? Maybe you should see an infectious disease specialist if you have traveled anywhere or an allergist for the urticaria/angioedema labs (anti-thyroid antibody evaluation).

Well: How long have you been on doxycylline? Since this is not likely an essential drug , you should check with your doctor to see if can discontinue it for a couple of weeks. Otherwise you need further work up.
