Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia mayonii and Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. Alarmingly common in the US, over 200K people each year are infected after being bitten by a deer tick. The chances of getting Lyme disease when bitten, depend on the type of tick, where you where when bitten, and how long the tick was attached. Many types of ticks bite people in the U.S., but only blacklegged ticks transmit the bacteria that cause Lyme disease.
Symptoms of Lyme disease include fatigue, fever, headache, stiffness, swelling, joint pain, and if left untreated, can affect the heart and nervous system. Seventy to eighty percent of those infected will see a Erythema migrans (EM) rash. This rash shows up 3 to 30 days after a tick bite and as it enlarges, it resembles the shape of a "bulls-eye target". Another recognizable symptom is facial paralysis or facial palsy where one or both sides of the face appear droopy. If you experience any of these symptoms, especially after spending time in wooded or grassy areas known to have ticks, consult your local health professional as soon as possible. Prevention is the best defense against Lyme disease. It is recommended to avoid wooded and brushy areas, and use repellents that contain at least 20 to 30% DEET. Be sure to follow the product instructions, and re-apply as often as necessary. Permethrin is also an effective way to treat gear and clothing. Blacklegged ticks need to be attached for at least 24 hours before they can transmit Lyme disease. This is why it's so important to remove them promptly and to check your body daily for ticks if you live in an endemic area. The CDC cautions against trying remedies that include painting with nail polish, covering with petroleum jelly, or using heat to get a tick to detach. The goal is to remove the tick as soon as possible, do not wait for it to detach. They recommend use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin's surface as possible. Then pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don't twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal. After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Lyme disease is treatable, meaning patients who receive prompt medical attention typically make a full recovery from the disease. Traditionally, doctors prescribe oral or intravenous antibiotics to patients diagnosed with this disease.
