It's not hopeless! I have chronic lymes and from what you are saying it seems you still have lymes and perhaps a parasite burden, have you done any parasite cleansing?? If you did have chronic lymes a course of doxy ain't going to fix it. Pure organic coconut oil from head to toe daily will help clear up your skin condition, baths in borax, Epson salts and bicarb. You need to get things flowing, juice lemons and drink first thing in morning followed by warm water with Sea Salt s. Don't go far from the loo!!! Lymes is very good at hiding! I suffered for 15 yrs before I was diagnosed. There are lots of options for you to try. I'm sure others on the forum may have some ideas. Best wishes. Stay positive.
