Many tick bites in NC last month,-- eight(8) plus. Dr. there said to take Doxycyline 100 for 10 days if any suspect symptoms developed.
I am now back home in Thailand and lower back and butt muscle pain and stiffness has come on strongly.
I took my second Doxy pill a few hours ago and my penis is starting to become swollen with red inflammation.
I took an Aleve two hours ago, to fight the inflammation, until I find out what I should do?
Should I continue the doxycycline, but with an anti-inflammatory?
What anti-inflammatory should I take, when and how much?
Is there an effective substitute to the doxycycline that I can switch to?
I am a 73 and male
