What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is a serous bacterial infection. They are carried by ticks if they have bitten any infected mice or deer. Infected ticks are known to transfer this transfer this disease to humans and their pets through their bite.

Being around pets that may have ticks, or walking in tall grasses could put you at a high risk of getting infected by ticks and contracting Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is a lot more common than you may think, which is why it is important to learn about its signs and symptoms and precautionary measures to avoid it.

Lyme Disease: Symptoms

In several cases, a tick remains attached to the human for at least 24 hours to contract the bacterial infection. It is also important to note that not everyone who was bitten contracts Lyme disease. The symptoms likely take several days or weeks to appear.

  • Rashes appearing at the place of bite (typically a red circle with a bull’s eye appearance)
  • Feeling ill in general
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Headache
