Is Lyme disease more serious in children?

Is Lyme disease more serious in children?

Not necessarily: Lyme is a complex illness. Some who have it become quite ill, while others have mild symptoms. This depends on the strain of lyme bacteria, genetics of the patient, presence of co-infections like babesia & bartonella & factors that affect immune function like nutrition, parasites, heavy metals, mold exposure & stress.Thus, like adults, some children become quite ill but others have minimal symptoms. ...Read more
