I got a bite from the beach about three or four years ago

I got bit by something on the beach and i thought it was a tick but i don’t know what it is. I’ve been noticing that my top lip is changing colors from dark brown to a light pink. Like my calf muscles look like they are getting eaten by something like I’m terrified

Hi @samking20 that must be frightening. Here is a link to a discussion on Lyme Disease that may be helpful: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/lyme-disease-1/

How long have you been having these symptoms? Have you had any others?

Hi,
The only bugs on the beach that may have bit you are likely sand fleas, or some kind of biting fly. You may be having an allergic reaction to it. I would go to a dermatologist, as they can better tell what this might be.

Hope you feel better soon,

Have you been to a dermatologist? They can take scrapings of your skin and look at it under a microscope to find out what is giving you these symptoms. Some of the symptoms you speak of would not make sense as far as parasites would go..but it may be something else entirely that just feels like parasites. There are many conditions that give the sufferer the feeling of bugs crawling on and under your skin. A dermatologist would be able to help.

Thank u but dermatologists laugh and will not. Touch me . Drs have lied to the pint of telling me they did 2 Biopsy’s yet NONE ! Were done !! Parasite test was given to me wrong twice so colonoscopy had to b cancelled . They want nothing to do with it or me . I was told by drs for a year there is NO TEST for parasites ! I am beyond sick . MY EYES have collapsed ! They sunk into my head and my calf muscles r all twisted ! I truly beleive I have been stigmatized by Drs and left for dead . I have clear pictures Of parasites but they ignore them . IM DESPERATE FOR HELP YET DRS HAVE JUGED ME AND CHOOSE TO IGNORE WHATS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM . ME . Thank u for ur support . Lisa
