Son is 11 and tested positive for Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesia and Bartonella. Also is IGG positive for HSV6 (13.8 when positive is 1.00 or more) He is progressing but very tired and lethargic. Does HSV6 usually have an individual treatment?

Amidst the plethora of multiple conditions I can understand your anxiety and care towards your child.

The point that he is progressing is good to know. Yes if the person has raised liver enzymes, he would be tired and lethargic. Usually it takes 8 to 12 weeks before he gets his normal physiological functions.

HSV 6 has no different or individual treatment to other HSV types. At this stage, there are few options for your child as the liver enzymes are elevated. Hence your doctor should critically analyze the situation and institute the treatment.

Can you please send me the test reports like LFT, serology of Lyme disease.
