Lyme Disease & Treatment

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria known as Borrelia burgdorferi. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If it is left untreated, the infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. This disease is treated based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks. Laboratory testing is helpful if used correctly and performed with validated methods. Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics. The measures to prevent Lyme disease include using applying pesticides, insect repellent, removing ticks promptly and reducing tick habitat.
