Red rash on inner thigh, itchy, no flaking or oozing fluid. History of Lyme disease

I developed a circular red rash on my right inner thigh. It had a red dot in the center. I was treated for Lyme disease with an antibiotic for 14 days. Since, I have now developed the same appearing circular rash under both arms, not in the armpit area but just above it. I have at least 4 lesions under each arm. I have been given a topical ointment 6 days ago, am using it as prescribed. No significant change in current lesions. I now am developing more lesions on my left inner thigh, more also on the right. They are slightly itchy, no flaking or oozing of fluid.

Thanks for the query.

Dont worry this rash is typical of lyme's disease.

Slowly you will recover.

A photograph would have helped me much better.

Just apply some moisturizer, you will be relieved with this.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
