Had Lyme disease, quit antibiotics to herbal supplements, causing stinging debris and itching. Is it a healing process?
Hi, Dr. Grief. I m Jan. I have had Lyme disease sine I was very young. I was an accomplished figure skater and the symptoms went away for decades while traing and coaching in freezing temps. My q to you is this: I took oral antibiotics and had to quit. Now I m taking a proven herbal supplement . I have had stinging debri like a stinger come out of my eye. Now I am itching quite a bit. Is this a healing crisis?
No dear Jan, this just allergy not related to Lyme's disease. Do use Olopatadine 0.1 % e/d twice and Refresh liqigel e/d 4-5 times a day. always splash your eyes with cold water when you are back from outdoors.
