      Save the antibiotics for the serious stuff.”

      I have a question about this. My husband has cat scratch disease, we are
      three months into it right now, and it is still very severe. The disease
      specialist said he had never seen a bacteria count so high or a lymph node
      swollen so much in relation to this disease.

      Two weeks ago they put my
      husband on antibiotics, zithromax which he is to take every other day for
      three months, and vibramycin which he is to take twice a day for one month.
      I am concerned about this lowering his immune system. I am worried because
      he already seems to be getting a lot of colds and flus this season. Anyway I
      am wondering if there is anything he can take to boost his immune sytem and
      counteract the effects of the antibiotics.

      I am also concerned about future
      illnesses that may be more serious–there has never been a death from cat
      scratch disease, but most cases go away on there own within two months. It
      comes from getting scratched by an infected kitten, aparently 30% of kittens
      in CA are infected and ours was one. I’d love your input.

      I am already
      giving him some Jarro-Dophilus, but is there anything else that will boost
      his immune system.

      Also Lis, you mentioned in another post that a good place to start was to
      add tea and it would help your overall health. I am wondering what kind of
      tea do you recommend.

      Thank you so much,
      Melissa in Ca
