    Positive cord blood in newborn (IGeneX)

    My newborn son tested positive for his cord blood test with IGeneX (placenta was negative). He is now 6 weeks old. My non-pediatric LLMD wants to start him on antibiotics (zithro). But I am hesitant to jump right in. I have heard that a positive cord blood PCR can just be showing DNA from my old Lyme infection. I was on antibiotics for most of the pregnancy and for three years before it (for my pregnancy/breastfeeding of my daughter). I went off a few months before my son arrived to give his gut flora and mine a chance to recover. I wasn't really actively ill even, just taking it as a precaution. But now I am confused and scared.

    Does anyone have experience with treating congenital lyme in their newborn? I left a message for Dr. Charles Ray Jones in CT to see if I can get a consult with him as he is supposed to be the best with kids. My doctor doesn't seem to have the latest info on treating pediatric lyme.

    ANY experience or advice would be very very appreciated!
