Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi ciconner. I am so sorry your son is sick, I know it is heartbreaking. I hope your other son is not infected. Rashes occur in only approximately 50% of cases.

Is he seeing Dr. B. or Dr. L? I am sure Laurie can give you wonderful advice mom to mom.

In case you didn't know, there is a cover you can get to cover his PICC line so he can bathe/shower without getting the site wet. It is called a PICC line protector and you can get it at Brown Medical. I believe they have different sizes. It is a big help.

There is a cream, I believed called EMLA, that they can put on his arm to numb the area before the PICC line is inserted. You may want to ask the doctor or nurse if this may make it easier on him. My heart goes out to you.
