Ticks carry many diseases, toxins, and bacteria that can be transmitted via a bite. Lyme disease is one of the most common.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bite of an infected deer tick. Untreated, the disease can cause a number of health problems. Patients treated with antibiotics in the early stage of the infection usually recover rapidly and completely. Health departments also investigate several other tick-borne diseases, including babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, but these are less common than Lyme disease. But most of the time there is little risk from the bite of a tick. The usual reaction is nothing more than a raised skin bump that gets better within a few days. And in extremely rare cases, a form of paralysis may develop. If you are concerned about tick bites or have been bitten by a tick, you should contact your healthcare provider.
