THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Wait or Treatment


I was asked - Wouldn’t it be wise to take the doxy treatments to assure against infection? I would not want to take a chance.
----------------------
My response as a Tick Borne disease advocate and NOT a medical (Non) Lyme Literate person of the new Tick Borne disease sciences.
---------------------

As a rule Joie, this is where it can get dicey. IN MY OPINION. If you briefly have a tick on you. Should you be tested or treated. Every situation is different. I will be plain and simple. If you have a tick embedded a short time. Typical Doxi 2 pill treatment or 21-day protocol treatment will be a joke in my book for the 20% that will go onto late stage Lyme ( suggest that % is much higher). Plus that 2 pill or 21 days treatment protocol will cancel out any possibly bull's eye rash that only shows less than 40% of the time anyway. To top that off we are finding more Borrelia strains that don't produce a bulls eye rash. At this time in these trying times of Lyme. I would rather keep all options open, Send tick to be tested, get results back in just a few days as incubation is 21 days for Borrelia. Take pictures of the embedded tick. If a tick is positive, Likely you will be too. If a tick is negative. Keep info, pay attention to yourself for 6 months to a year. You will likely show something in less than a couple days to 6 months. That can be longer to years. The important thing in my brain is, You are on it and are able to get on it. Every situation is different. IN MY OPINION, Remember that I am not a Doctor but I could teach a few how to handle the situation that is not taught with more than a mere introduction to Tick related issues at the big U. Thank you Joie for striking this response. I will move this to my web/blog.
