Back in July (2016) my 7 year old son woke up with a fever. As common with kids the doctor recommended to wait and see if it is an infection of some sort that will sort itself out. On the 5th day of fever my son was feeling less and less himself. A visit to a docor at that time again did not lead anywhere meaningful. That same evening while he was playing a game I noticed a red spot on his leg. After examining his body I noticed a faint bulls eye mark on his back and about 2-3 addtional 2cm red spots at different spots on his body. Got in touch with his doctor and about an hour later he took his 1st antibiotics dose, which was part of a 3 week treatment. His fever and rash were gone in about 2 days and he was back to his normal self.
Doctor recommended blood test for the IgM and IgG antibodies 2 months after the rash was 1st seen.
Today I got a call with the results showing that he did in fact have a Lyme infection and showing that he still like has it. So he is about to go on a 2 months secondary treatment. He currently exhibits 0 symptoms (high energy, no joint pain etc).
I am wondering if anyone had to go for 2 rounds and I wonder what the outlook for complete erradication at the end of 2 months is.
Any advise is appricated.
