Erythema Migrans on the arm of my son

Erythema Migrans on the arm of my son

We have a stream near our house and my son likes to hike there. He also recently tested out a new tent in our front yard. Apparently, in one of those places he was bitten by a tick. I think one of our neighbors voodoo cursed him because they hated the tent being up badly. 🙂

Upon seeing the rash we “bundled him up” and headed to the doctor for antibiotics. They were more than happy to prescribe them since even the IDSA recommends that course. We left with 3 weeks of twice a day doxycycline. They also ran the ELISA and Western blot tests, both came back negative.

With my son getting Lyme it reconfirmed what I already knew; the lyme labs suck. His should have been a clear positive for either test, and both failed. What chance do you have if you make it to late stage Lyme?

I am pleased to report that my son completed the antibiotics and the rash is long gone. I am very thankful he got the rash. I do not expect him to have any more problems.

The feature has been available to a very select few during the long test phase. It is now available to everyone.

Do not worry I am sure the treatment is still available.

Eriksgirl brought up recently that they might have found the cure for MS. It has to do with iron, the brain, etc. I told her that I am familiar with the treatment, and that I wrote about CCSVI. I also felt that CCSVI would not work. It is not well if even Eriksgirl will not read the blog! 🙂 The blog is mostly for me as a reference point so all is well.

After my talk with Eriksgirl I felt compelled to look up CCSVI to see where it stood today. Apparently, this is not new news but CCSVI is dead. I cannot say that I am surprised. I stand by what I said in my original post when writing on CCSVI that I liked that it was a novel treatment, and not suppress the immune system treatment all over again. Kudos to Zamboni for thinking outside of the box.
