Remember where the bite was, and if you see any rash or unusual redness develop, give the ped a call. I'm glad the ped got it squared away, and I think she will be just fine.

It's only been 3 years since I had the Lyme rash and all they did was test me (negative) and put me on antibiotics as preventative...

So glad you're both doing better!!!
