Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

Lyme's Disease is a tick-borne illness caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. When diagnosed at an early stage, the standard treatment for Lyme disease is a two- to three-week course of oral antibiotics. Doxycycline, amoxicillin, and cefuroxime axetil are the most commonly prescribed medications.

The use of hydrogen peroxide is referred to (along with a resource link) as an unorthodox/alternative treatment. You can read more about it in the Washington Post article below. Copy/paste the link.
