Lyme disease is a medical condition caused by deer ticks. These are tiny arachnids that mainly occupy grassy and woody areas. As a result of their tiny size, deer ticks are almost impossible to see. As such, it can be quite difficult to prevent yourself from contracting the disease. However, wearing boots while traversing grassy and woody areas as well as spraying yourself with insect repellant have proven useful in reducing exposure. Additionally, people can wear long-sleeved clothing to prevent ticks from gaining access to their skin. Once a deer tick bites, it disseminates the bacteria borrelia burgdorferi and borrelia mayonii. These get into your system and cause the illness. Lyme disease is primarily characterized by a bull’s eye skin rash. The rash is commonly referred to as erythema migraines. At first, a small red bump manifests on the area where the tick bit. However, this bump quickly disappears. Over the next three to thirty days, however, the rash begins to cover a large portion of your skin. For some people, Lyme disease does not come with additional symptoms. However, other symptoms typical of this condition include chills, fever, fatigue, and body ache. Headaches, vomiting, and nausea can also be observed from an individual with the disease.
