Can Exposure To Mold Disrupt Lyme Treatment?

Treatment of Lyme disease can be an uphill battle. This is largely due to the fact that when the Lyme-causing Borrelia bacteria infiltrates the body, it can lay dormant and remain untouched by antibiotics, lying in wait to wreak havoc at a later date.

As the disease progresses, the symptoms become more severe and can include cardiac issues such as arrythmia, lowered cognitive function, chronic fatigue, and pain in the joints and muscles. There is only one treatment available for ridding the body of the Borrelia bacteria, and that’s antibiotics.
