itchy turns to rash/ antibiotics

I was tested +ve for lyme in july. Went to an LLMD in September who put me on Samento then after 6 weeks ie from October 21st I started using Minocycline 1tab every other day then after a week I had to increase my dosage to 2 tab every other day. Since 2 days I had severe itching and when I scratch it is turning into rash. The itching starts midnight which is causing me to wake up. I have the itching in by back, my joints. Did any experienced this.

Thank you

The dr told me to stop the antibiotics. My body needs rest.

Though I never had your exact reaction, at times I have taken breaks from antibiotics to give my body a rest from treatment.  I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you.

On wednesday morning I did take minocycline. The same day I reported to dr that I ma getting the itching and when I scratch it is turning into rash. But on wednesday night I did not get any itching or rash. Since wednesday night to until now I did not get any rash. I am wondering if the itch is because of the antibiotics.

I was getting itching whilst on antibiotics - it was like a tingling /stabbing sensation - all over - I didn't get a rash though - just reddness on the areas I scratched - scratching made me itch more - if I could not scratch it seemed to stop quicker.!

I did go to my LLMD to rule out if I am sensitive to antibiotics. After listening to my symptoms of rash they did said that I am not sensitive to the antibiotics. It seems that my antibiotic is working for me. So I started taking Minocycline since last wednesday and I am feeling ok, I mean I did not get any itchy or rash. If everything goes fine then from tomorrow I will be starating Azithromycin also. So I will be on 2 antibiotics.
Thank you
