This is Dr. David

I see you relisted the question for other doctors to help.

this would be unusual for lyme disease sort of rash.

with lyme disease, the rash usually is along with fevers and joint and muscle aches and pains

there are many types of lyme disease tests. there are blood test which show that you could have had lyme disease exposure in the past (IgG). and also tests to show that you might have current lyme disease (IgM).

MS as you know can cause rash as well.

also if you drink alcohol or wine at night time, this can cause a rash.

have you shown the rash to your neurologist or dermatologist?
