Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a tick-related illness caused mostly in eastern to mid-west regions of the United States. Its symptoms typically mimic others and can be difficult to diagnose. It starts with a red rash near the tick bite. Fever, headache, fatigue, stiff neck, muscle and joint pain can follow. These symptoms usually begin a month after a tick bite.

Treatment of Lyme Disease is performed with antibiotics.
