Exposure to someone with Lyme exacerbate pandas symptoms?

Recommended Posts

My guess would be, absolutely, plenty of potluck infections they will have that could trigger, depending on what causes the exacerbation (strep or virus or mycoplasma...). Mycoplasma is a common lyme coinfection, and anyone with untreated lyme for a while is going to have a heavy viral load as well. Unless they live isolated, I would guess they would have strep hanging around as well.

I agree, the lyme itself isn't going to do anything to him, unless he gets bit by an insect that previously bit the lyme infected person. But the person with untreated lyme undoubtedly has a load of other infections - viral and bacterial. Lyme does a number on the immune system and leaves the door open for many other germs.
