Co-Infections

Over 95% of people with Lyme Disease are infected with other diseases at the same time as they are infected with the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease. Common Co-infections can include :

Babesiosis

Bartonella

Ehrlichiosis

Mycoplasma Fermentans

These coinfections complicate the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease.  A useful co-infection symptom chart is available to compare the various co-infections – you can view it here – http://www.lyme-symptoms.com/LymeCoinfectionChart.html.
