Lyme Disease QuestionsSubmitted by queenbetz on Mon, 06/25/2012 - 14:53
Here I was worried about Flesh Eating Bacteria and you guys were great at the suggestions for my "what ifs". But now it's for real. This morning our Dr. confirmed what we guessed, our 5 1/2 yr old has Lyme's disease. I am so sad. Someone over the weekend chided me that I should have kept him indoors more, keep him covered more, etc...My kids are very active outdoorsy types, very hard workers and not allowed to mush their brains on the tv at all. Either way, the guilt trip didn't help. So the Dr. said 21 days of amoxicillin and that's it. From what my research says-that's not it! So other than adding some "good" bacteria to counter the drug, any suggestions? I'm thinking about extra measures (olive leaf extract, vit. C,....) I even thought about treating the whole family, a few complain about symptoms but have no rash ( I read that less than 10% ever even get the rash) Thanks for the help guys, I know you will come through.
