The danger with tick bites are becoming more widely known among the medical profession,and local government officials and politicians are being encouraged by groups of people who have suffered as a result of tick bites to become more aware of the diseases these ticks may carry.One such disease is known as Lyme disease or borreliosis.This is a potentially debilitating illness,if not recognized during the early stages.following a tick bite ,one of the tell tale signs of having contracted Lyme disease is a rash is not always present in all patients and it may even appear away from the suite of the bite.some patients may develop flu like symptoms and a fever ,which will also indicate possible infection.

If delected in the early stages ,Lyme disease can be treated effectively with antibiotics.if you have recently been bitten by a tick and notice a rash ,do not hesitate to get it checked out immediately.in its later stages ,Lyme disease will need more aggressive and longer term antibiotic treatment to control it .the longer the infection,the harder it is to cure.
