It seems theres no definitive answer then? As to if these other infections are wiped by immune system without the presence of lyme or as you say dont have the power to rise in the body on their own,
If the latter is true then surely this is a dangerous situation and any knock to the immune system not necessarily lyme could bring them forward meaning It would make sense that early treatment should tackle all possible coinfections as well as lyme as a precaution.
If you're talking about
acute infection - not one that is longstanding and disseminated then the treatment is to treat with an antibiotic - eg. Doxy for the required time - which is symptom free plus 4 weeks with minimum being 6 weeks.
But once it's been left untreated and disseminated (symptoms ) then treatment becomes more complicated.
That's why we urge people not to "wait and see" if they get a tick bit with or without the rash.
It's not worth the risk when you can take 4 weeks of abx.
