Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Lyme Disease
What Is Lyme Disease?
Lyme Disease - Basics
Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by the transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi, a bacterium which is commonly carried by the deer tick. An early symptom of Lyme disease is the appearance of a red rash at the site of the tick bite. This rash is called an erythema migrans (EM), and appears as a red spot before becoming larger to form a circular-shaped rash. Other symptoms of Lyme disease include fever, body aches, headaches, fatigue and stiff neck. If the infection goes untreated, Lyme disease can lead to the onset of other serious medical issues such as arthritis, Bell's Palsy, meningitis, impaired muscle movement, limb stiffness and heart problems.
