My 2 yr old son was bit by a tick yesterday in a NY area that has ticks found with Lyme and babesis microti.

He had a red reaction above and below the tick onto his neck that went away after the tick was removed. It was on there for possibly close to 24 hrs

He's not feverish or acting sick

I've never seen a red reaction like that. Do you have a opinion of why it would react like that?
Thank you  - [/IMG]

Welcome to LymeNet!

I know nothing to help with putting up pictures, so sorry!

I do know you may (if I was his mother advise) want to go to

www.TreatTheBite.com

You can print out a one-page document (right from the main page there) with the tick bite treatment recommendations used world wide.

One protocol is for children and one is for adults.

Again, if this was my little one, knowing what I do, getting him treated would be a definite plan, and ASAP.

The "wait and see" method sucks! That allows the bacteria to disseminate through the body.

It is like sitting there waiting for the kitchen to flood clear up to the ceiling before turning off the kitchen sink faucet.

BTW- Less than 10% of children get a Lyme related rash. If you have a Lyme related rash you have Lyme.

I know some stuff, but am just dribbling it out one piece at a time here it seems? Guess my brain has turned to grits?

[lol]

Here is a bunch of rash pictures in case you are interested. Click the first link provided under "Lyme & Tick Borne Disease Rash Photos".

Hi Nikolai, your image isn't appearing. Try uploading your image to imgur.com, it's a simple process that works well:

That's odd. I'm on the most recent Safari version (iphone) and it doesn't appear. I guess it needs a plugin or something.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for MA & CT.

Many years ago my son had an oval red rash (not a bulls'-eye) on his thigh with many mosquito bites (no ticks). It took six years just to find out what was wrong with him! Turns out that rash was a form of the bull's-eye.

Your dear son needs to be evaluated a.s.a.p by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!

A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.

Here is a link for them:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

LLMDs are far and few between, unfortunately. He needs to go where they are.

Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance":
http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0

When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MassachusettsLyme/info

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources (including Support Groups info):
http://whatislyme.com/websites-and-support-groups-by-state/

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Massachusetts/

Here are some links for you with good information about Lyme and children:

http://www.childrenslymenetwork.org/

https://sites.google.com/site/drjoneskids/symptoms-literature

https://sites.google.com/site/drjoneskids/home

Here is a link for a book titled, "When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent's Survival Guide" which also might be helpful:

http://www.lymeliteratepress.com/

Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and his new one, "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information.

Read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Get it at your local library or buy it used on Amazon.

Thank you so much for your feedback.

I truly appreciate you taking time out of your day to give me such detailed information. Truly

I did bring him to the doctor this evening. I was sent away told to wait and see. I showed her the pic, told her it was about 24 hrs abd said he was fatigued today. Wants a fever chills achiness etc before amid.

unfortunately with a two yr old the only solid measure is a fever. Everything else is hard to say considering he doesn't speak clear sentences. Uh

You're very welcome - glad to help.

Call the LLMDs I sent you and get him in to whichever one can take him first (call every day if you have to!).

Btw - I know you are new to Lymenet, but please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.

To do this click the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.

Find a new doctor immediately!

I pre-warned about the "wait and see" method. It is guaranteed trouble that can't be reversed.

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!
