Anyone know of a pediatric LLMD in maryland?

He is 17 and has had chronic asthma since he was 1, had exzema and ear infections from infancy until about 8. Had tubes in ears at 2. His asthma is doing well, but he has had chronic sinusitis for the past 3-4 years. He has had a stiff neck and neck pain for several months now. Other than that, he is very healthy, athletic, and in excellent physical shape.

His pediatrician said he tested positive for the IGM, negative for IGG (thats good that means he is not chronic like me) He is on 875mg twice a day of amoxicillin/augmentin for his sinus infection now and has five days left. should I ask his dr if he should also do 4 weeks of doxy?

You said that he has been having problems for some time now? I have had Lyme for quite some time myself, but tested IGM positive. I have heard that some people never test IGG positive.. so may be IGM positive, but have had it for years. I do hope that's not the case with your son. Good luck to him! :)
