May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

One small bite could potentially effect you for the rest of your life.  Lyme disease is difficult to diagnose, and unfortunately there is no cure for it. Cases of Lyme disease have been reported in every state, and on every continent except Antarctica. Early symptoms include fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes. 70-80% of people will also develop a rash at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days (but usually around 7 days) after the initial bite.  After spending time outdoors, especially after hiking, or being in a wooded area, always check yourself, your children, and your pets, from head to toes (or paws), and shower immediately afterward. Wearing light colored clothing, with long sleeves and long pants, as well as shoes, rather than sandals or bare feet, can be very helpful in preventing ticks from getting on you.  Getting your property treated for ticks will greatly lower you and your loved ones chances of encountering any of these Lyme disease carrying pests.
