No, I see him monthly, sixgoofykids. Have been for months. And I'm still undergoing treatment.
I know he's a good llmd but it's this sort of thing that makes me wonder. ???
Thanks for the vote of confidence on the ceftin and zith. I really need it right now!

Sleep with a slice of garlic taped to the wound. It stinks but it helps killing a lot of things. I also rubbed bee venom ointment there at least once a day.
My naturopath told me about the slice of garlic for about a week or so (I did it for more, just to be sure...).
Another thing was a mix of essential oils like thyme and oregano. These are though VERY STRONG, so be careful. They kill everything locally, but you can get a bad rash from them if you don't dilute them.
Another thing that doesn't hurt much and is VERY strong is frozen garlic. Biopure has it, it is very widespectrum and one of the strongest 'killers' I ever took. Solve it in water and take during meals.
If I were you, I would also go immediately on astragalus, to help my immune system fight this new infection. Buhner recommends that every new tick bite. I would take it for one or two months.
I'm living away from tick land now but will be back to Europe soon for vacations. The best ever tick preventive bite treatment I got is an homeopathic dilution of Borrelia, very very diluted.
It's called Borrelia burgdorferi LM6, prescribed by my lyme doctor after I saw him in my 3rd re-infection... Never more I got reinfected by borrelia. Ticks that contain borrelia don't bite you if you take this. I took that once a week, for a month, then once every two weeks for two months then only once a month until tick season ends (about November).
But my daughter still caught lyme encephalitis (TBE) with a new tick bite in 2008, as the tick contained TBE, but not borrelia. But the number of tick bites diminished for us to about 95% less than what we usually got every summer in Switzerland. MOst ticks there are contaminated with borrelia and if you give animals this homeopathic product, they are bitten much less (really, about 90-95% less).
It works for sheep and it works for cats (I tried on my cat, from about 500 attached ticks a year, he got down to about 10-20 ticks a year). That alone convinced me it works as tick repellent!
I suspect Deseret Biologicals in the US sells these highly diluted borrelia nosodes.
Good luck. I hope your tick was not contaminated. I fought reinfections quite a few times and so did my daughter. It was not funny.
