Hi someone has been bitten by 2 ticks and has allergies and sensitivities to antibiotics has anyone used natural means to avoid it and gotten lyme disease anyway?

Re: Ahhhh! Tick bite and allergies to antibiotics! Question for anyone to answer.

Some people start taking antibiotics, such as myself and others that I have talked with. And have what is called a Herximer (Herx). This is caused from killing off the bacteria. Symptoms get worse.

But then I also know people that do alternative and they also have herxes.

There are other ways of trying to treat lyme. As with antibiotics, what is good for one person may not be good for another.

Possibly seeing a Naturopath that deals in Lyme and co-infections can help.

Good luck to your friend!

Jodie
