What do you give after embedded tick?

Recommended Posts

Pulled three embedded ticks (deer tick nymphs) yesterday- one off my 5 year old with Lyme and two off my 9 year old (not diagnosed with Lyme yet...). I know some people give antibiotics prophylactically after pulling embedded ticks from endemic areas. Five year old on week 2 of doxy and still on ceftin. Nine year old takes daily zithromax. I am watching them closely fr any new symptoms or rashes, but wondering what to do.

TIA.

I'd call your LLMD and ask his opinion. The 5yo is probably ok since he's on doxy. Not sure about the 9 yo.

I agree with LLM and give a call to your LLMD. Some ticks can carry Babesia which would require something other than an antibiotic. So keep an eye for any new symptoms. Sorry.
