Lyme Disease – 

Simple Tips To Prevent Lyme Disease –
by Jill Carnahan MD, ABFM, ABPHM, IFMCP

Jill Carnahan MD is a well respected doc with lots of functional medicine training and one of the presenters at my mold conference last year. I diagnosed myself as having acute Lyme when I had a lip crusting that wouldn’t heal for few months, and when I was at a Lyme conference this year, I realized this had been a Lyme complication and the skin lesion I thought was ringworm that wouldn’t respond, few months earlier on my shin, was the target lesion of Lyme. Took antibiotics and eventually went away.

Lyme is the fast spreading infectious disease in the US and can even be spread by mosquitos and is pretty endemic in Pac NW. Interesting thought to take antibiotics preventively
as I agree the risk is far outweighed by the severity of Lyme disease.
