How long after sickness does your child flare?

Recommended Posts

Trying to discover what is causing flares and observe any possible patterns. How long after illness does your child flare? Does anyone know of a study that documents average time after? It would be helpful to determine definitively that being sick results in a flare, or is it just that we are riding the waves of Lyme disease/Bartonella.... 

So tired of all this. Every time I feel like I’m getting somewhere it’s two steps back.

For us, we had quite a variation of lengths of flares from known triggers.  When someone else in the house is sick, he has sometimes only flared for a few days after that person gets better (and he himself did not seem to display the symptoms of that particular bug - but that could be "alternate immune response").

After we finally figured out he had some gum disease (not brushing and flossing well enough), he still remained in flare for a couple of weeks afterwards (after what was already a couple of months of flare).  It took weeks to bring his gum problems under control (with mouthwash as well as more regular brushing and flossing).
