Lyme Disease Info

Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks infected with a specific bacterium. It is characterized by a rash called "erythema migrans," but other symptoms are possible too. Treatment generally involves antibiotics. If you live in an area where ticks are common, preventing Lyme disease is crucial. This involves removing ticks promptly and applying insect repellant, among other things.
