Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


Ceftriaxone is a good IV med for Lyme. Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE) is usually treated with Doxycycline. I do not believe Doxy is prescirbed for young children and I think Rifampin is used. The co-infection Babesiosis is similar to malaria and is treated with a combination of an anti-malarial with an antibiotic. This is usually Mepron and Zithromax. Bartonella is usually treated with cipro, erythromycin, or Doxy. I have had three of four of the co-infections and was treated with the meds mentioned. I have been on Ceftriaxone for Lyme only, not the co-infections. Please do research this.

There is an excellent book entitled "Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease." The second edition was printed in March of this year.

You can get a cover for your son's PICC line so he can take a shower or bath without getting the site wet. Websites cannot be posted here but if you do a search on PICC line cover or cast covers, you should be able to find where you can order one. They are a great help!

I am sure you and your son cannot wait for him to get home!
