Beyond Lyme Disease
You may have heard about Lyme disease and its telltale rash, but do you know about the other, harder to detect, tick-borne illnesses?
Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is an infection caused by bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi. These bacteria are transmitted through the bites of ticks, primarily the deer tick.
Tick Bites
Ticks are tiny, biting arachnids that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals, including humans. They burrow painlessly into the skin with their feeding parts, bite, draw blood, and eventually drop off when they become engorged with blood.
