Take a picture of the rash right away, before it goes away. Put a ruler or a coin next to the rash when taking the picture, to give some size definition to the rash. It he has the tick saved in a plastic baggie etc. , the tick can be sent to IGenex lab, in Palo Alto, California, to be tested. If he is able to convince a doctor to give him treatment for lyme right away, for 6 weeks or 2 months, then he has a good chance of beating this. You could make a copy of the Dr. Burrascano guidelines and let him bring that to his doctor. It talks about
the dosage and drugs to use and for how long. Maybe this early treatment will prevent him from ever experiencing this terrible disease. He could also choose to travel to see a llmd if he cannot find one close by to treat him. He can get doc referrals from his state's lyme diseas assoc. Always ask to be put on a "cancellation" list for the llmd because this can help him get in sooner. Have him start a journal, write down the date of the bite and where it happened, and keep track of any symptoms he may have. It will make remembering easier.
Hope this helps. Best wishes, bablymers mom
