7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?
Hard to say: If the rash is moving from a local to a general distribution it is unlikely a simple contact dermatitis like poison ivy. Generalized rashes can be secondary to an infection (virus or bacteria) a food reaction or bug bites. Without examining the rash it is hard to speculate on a cause or specific treatment. If it itches, Benadryl can be given for comfort. ...Read more

Fly like symptoms for 4 days. No very painful head and neck on left side only. Can meningitis present with one sided pain and with no fever?
Not likely: Bacterial meningitis usually progresses rapidly once you have it and is very dangerous. Stiff neck and headache can be associated with any Upper respiratory tract infection. If you had four days of fever and these symptoms it would be more of an issue. Although, it is unlikely meningitis, I would see your doctor for a check up. ...Read more

Days to months: Erythema migrans, the bulls-eye rash unique to lyme, appears within 3-30 days after a bite & lasts several days to several months. However, no more than 1/2 and probably less than 1/3 of those with lyme report a bulls-eye rash. If you have it you have lyme, but not having it does not rule out lyme in any way.

Sx headaches on back of head/neck area. Dog had ticks removed them with tweezrs & poppd apimple with the same thing 2 days later. Chances of lyme?
Diagnosed w/ Lyme disease, bartonella, & babesia. Have noticed increasingly stiff & painful neck w/ head pain & pressure for past 3 days w/ fever ranging btwn 99.6 & 100.5. Are these symptoms typical?
YOU ARE NOT 15 MIN!: I agree that you should not assume the neck pain is Lyme spasms, and get to ER. We would like to propose that while Babesia can raise temps, Bartonella can be immunosuppressive-floats in blood--you do not die. A fever with Bartonella I would take seriously. My wise MD friend is right. If 3 infections--missed one? ER. As Fallon, MD Columbia recently posted-ticks are infection bus-over 1-3 bugs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Chest port implanted Fri, surgeon said chest/neck skin very fibrous, like cutting thru gristle in meat & dulled 3 scalpels. What could be cause? Lyme?
Lyme infects joints: and nerves. The erythema annular does not scar. So, 'no' on lyme. However, previous scarring would do this. Prior procedures/surgeries in the same area certainly would do this. Alternatively other medical conditions (scleroderma) that cause scarring could also do this. ...Read more

Had bulls-eye rash post-tickbite sevral yrs ago.Now told Lyme shows up on MRI&EEG&mine were norm so I cant have lyme.Is this true?So many weird probs!
Not true at all!: If you had a bullseye rash after a tick bite you have been infected with B. burgdorferi, the microbe that causes Lyme. Lyme is highly variable in how it manifests. It often infects the brain & can cause abnormal MRI's but certainly not always. It is important to find a "Lyme-literate"doctor. See http://tinyurl.com/nh8vukp for an overview & & http://tinyurl.com/pkjj54u for my talk on Lyme. ...Read more
I've had sore in both nostrils off and on for the last month and a half, rash on neck, face and chest and fluid in the ears. Any idea what this is?
Allergy: The variety of symptoms that you are describing sounds like a viral infection. The middle ear fluid should cause a hearing loss. Sores in the nose for a month and a half have no relation to middle ear fluid. A rash on the neck, face, and chest along with the middle ear fluid sounds like a viral infection or most likely an allergic problem. See you primary care doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
