I found a tick on my left scalp by accident and pulled it off not knowing it was a tick. A few days later I developed inflamed and painful lymph nodes behind my left ear. A doctor prescribed doxycycline and a day later 90% of the inflammation went away. I am now paranoid about coming down with lyme disease. This morning I found a tick crawling on my blanket and from the pictures, it looks like a male wood tick. What treatment do you suggest for me? Thank you.
Astragalus 3,000 mg daily for 30 days, 1,000 mg daily thereafter, indefinitely.
