Absolutely everything I have read says that w/ a bull's eye rash, no test is needed. The rash itself is a positive diagnosis for Lyme, and lyme only. As for testing for co-infections, I don't know. She should be able to find out what labs her insurance contracts with and try looking them up online. Once on the lab website, try searches for babs, bart, etc. Due to her rash being a positive for a TBI, she should be able to request tests for co-infections. I just do not know how reliable they are. Hopefully someone here w/ more knowledge than I can speak to that.
