Lyme disease is a tick-borne disease caused by bacteria. It is transmitted by the bite of deer ticks and requires 36 hours of attachment to the skin to pass the bacteria. It is more common in the northeastern or north-central United States. It often happens in late spring and summer seasons.
Lyme disease represents itself by a rash called erythema migrans. The rash is a red spot appearing within 3 to 30 days of the tick bite and can be found in any part of the body. Other symptoms can be chills, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, neck stiffness and joint pain.
Lyme disease can be treated with antibiotics. It can be prevented by avoiding tick-rich areas, wearing protective clothing, and using bug sprays and bathing after outdoor activities. It may cause complications like heart and nervous problems.
