Brief Answer:
Could you provide a picture of the affected area?

Detailed Answer:

Is it possible to send a picture of the affected area? It could help me guide if it is really related to Lyme disease or not.

I could add that when Lyme disease is treated, it would need months to up to an year for the symptoms to resolve.

Looking forward to have your pictures in.

Thank you.
