Hello. I was wondering, if someone is on abx and they got bit by a tick:

1.If there weren't any co-infections would that person become infected?

2.Would the tick bite cause his current symptoms to flare up?

3.Will it make getting to remission even harder?

I don't know if this has happened to me. I walked in a park one weekend and about 5 days later my sx started flaring up.

It got real bad for about 4 days and then I started to feel better. Now I'm almost back to how I felt 2 weeks ago but not quite there yet.

I know there could be other explanations for what happened:yeast,sugar,toxins,etc...

Maybe I'm being paranoid...maybe not?

It seems like this nightmare will never end!

I was reinfected with lyme and babesia with a new tick bite two summers ago. I was on oral antibiotics for lyme at the time.

I relapsed with both bugs. The babesia got a firm foothold, which makes treating the lyme more difficult. We've been battleing the babesia ever since. I have WA1 rather than microti.

Speak with your doctor about retesting for the coinfections. For me they are the real trouble makers in being able to get to the lyme.

Could have been a herx too.

I was bitten two months ago and came down with the "flu" 9 days later. I'm still ailing somewhat and I even had the tick tested by Igenex for Lyme and babesia.{NEG}

So I'm not sure WHAT the tick might have left me this time!

Or was it really the flu and it caused the "old" Lyme and babesia to resurface? Who knows!
