Lyme Disease Australia 
and associated TBD (Tick born diseases)

Lyme disease (Borreliosis) is here to stay. Its not a rural disease, its in the suburbs too

Many people are having hyperthermia treatment overseas 

and returning worse than when they set off

 This is because of unrecognised and  untreated lyme co-infections, 
which flare immediately after the hyperthermia

Dr Mayne has returned to limited work at this stage and is working in the areas of dermatology, skin cancer and Lyme disease. For Lyme disease a patient requires a referral from a "willing" doctor - a doctor prepared to be involved in your treatment. This is because Dr Mayne has ongoing health issues that will require hospitalisation and time away from his practice during 2015 and possibly into 2016. 
Thank you

Lyme disease is being called borreliosis in Australia

Not only do we have Lyme disease but also babesia, bartonella, anaplasmosis, ehrlichia chaffeensis infection and rickettsiae, all as coinfections most likely introduced at the same time. Then we also have other problematic coinfections with chlamydia pneumoniae, mycoplasma (including fermentans), Q fever and brucellosis.

Morgellons Disease - a skin manifestation of Borrelia infection
see the Morgellons page for startling new research April 2012 proving this disorder is not delusional

From 1992 Dr Mayne has had an intense interest in the early initial infection, erythema migrans (EM) that goes on to cause chronic lyme disease. This interest was sharpened by the dermatology diploma he did in 2005 in terms of early recognition of the disease and also the unique skin manifestation that can rarely occur much later in the disease. See photos on this hyperlink.

Dr Mayne became involved with Australian PCR detection of the disease in some of his longstanding EM patients over 2008 and 2009. PCR detection of any disease is superior to tests relying on serology. Indeed you can have negative serology with positive PCR and this is particularly so in lyme disease.
