What is the right treatment for Lyme disease?

According to the Mayo Clinic, doxycycline is the preferred antibiotic for treating Lyme disease. Amoxicillin and cefuroxime are alternate antibiotic options suitable for children under 8 and adults who are pregnant or breastfeeding. The standard length of treatment is 14 to 21 days, although some research shows that shorter courses of antibiotics may be as effective as longer ones.
