I'm asking a question here since everything is so confusing about the lyme disease...
I'm a French mum and my little girl (5year old now) has been bitten by an infected tick for years ago. She's had a 14-day amoxicilline treatment and the doctor told me she was cured. I asked for a "follow up" of this infection (blood tests erevy now and then ?... )but the doctor "refused" and told me to forget it which I tried to do.
A few weeks ago she slightly complained about her knees and had a weird spot(like a target) during one morning so I decided to check, on my own, if there was any link with the tick bite. The western blot came back positive (igmpositive 41 and 8, Igg positive 41 and 5) but still the doctors (even specialists in infectious disease) tell me the bacteria is no longer there (??) and I won't find any doctor to give her any treatment because she doesn't have real symptoms ...
My question is : how long does the treatment last when you have symptoms ? does a LLD only rely on symptoms or does the treatment go on if the serology is still positive ?
Is there any kind of "follow up" when you have been treated ?
I can't help feeling worried, thinking there might be something to be done for her today because the disease might reappear later and be more difficult to treat... How can I find a LLD in Europe ?
I hope you'll give me some answers and advice,
