if you have any concern that your family has been bitten, get them tested!!!!
All bites need to be treated profilactically. I never had a rash, so keep that
Please do find an LLMD. Lyme can screw with you for years, so don't rely on
someone who doesn't know what they're doing. This is a systemic infection and
if not addressed properly, it will be very difficult to radicate! Please, see an LLMD.
My insurance covered almost 90% of the visit.
By the way, you need to be on at least 400mg of doxy daily to be effective. Go to the ILADS
website and find the Burasscano 2008 Lyme guidelines. It's a great place to start.
My LLMD treats Lyme and its co-infections til 6 weeks of no symptoms. So, you will need to be on meds for awhile! Make sure to read the Burrascano thing. It will really help you figure out what else you need to take; like acidopholis.
I'm starting to get kinda paranoid about going fishing, hiking, hunting, etc. again. I just read that someone over by you was just bitten again a couple of weeks ago! And I really worry about my son getting biten. I hope this doesn't keep me out of the woods! How do you hunt with a half can of Off sprayed on you?
