Hi all - I haven't been around for a while because I'm doing fairly well myself, thankfully.
However, a high school friend recently got in touch with me because her 2yo son developed a bullseye rash after a camping trip last week.
She's going through a debacle trying to get meds for her son (doc says tick wasn't attached for 36 hours, so it can't be Lyme). I shared some references on tick attachment times and disease transmission, hoping that would help.
While she works on convincing her doc that her son needs antibiotics ASAP, I figured I'd reach out for pediatric LLMD recs.
Please PM me if you have any good experiences with Lyme-Literate pediatricians in the Washington DC or Alexandria, VA area.
Thanks in advance and be well.
