Tick tests positive for Lyme disease

Tick tests positive for Lyme disease

The insect transmitted disease, the Lyme disease affects around 300,000 people each year in the USA, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Tick-related illness typically peaks in the summertime. Residents are invited to bring clothing (one set of trousers, socks and shoes) that they would like to treat with permethrin, which is an effective barrier to tick bites. Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with antibiotics.

Lyme disease can lead to arthritic symptoms, cardiac issues, extreme fatigue/weakness and nervous system disorders, if left untreated. Of course all of these symptoms may indicate another kind of illness but one thing that you will not experience in case of Lyme disease is the congestion and coughing. Twenty percent of victims do not get an early warning sign. Taking precautions while hiking or camping is the best way to avoid a tick bite. The tick then moves from the plant to the host and scrambles to find a place to attach. Avoiding overgrown trails and tall grass will reduce the risk of coming into contact with ticks. Wear closed toed shoes, long sleeve shirts that fit tightly around the wrist, and long-legged trousers tucked into your socks or boots. Dressing in light colored clothing will make it easier to spot a tick that may have latched on to a pant leg. "For extra protection, tuck your shirt into your trousers and your trousers into your socks", Desai said. For those who camp or hike often, it could be worthwhile to invest in tick repellent clothing. The more common and larger dog tick does not carry Lyme disease.

There is only one recommended method of tick removal.

Cover exposed skin whenever possible. Twisting the tick can result in releasing the fluids inside the animal and increasing the risk of disease transmission.

Ticks are tiny creatures and their bites are usually painless, meaning you may not even know if you have been bitten.

The Marion Board of Health and the Tri-Town Public Health Nurses are pleased to announce that they will sponsor a tick bite prevention event on Saturday, June 9from 8:30 - 10:00 am in the Old Rochester Regional Junior High School parking lot. The Washtenaw County Health Department is urging residents to take steps to prevent tick bites, and to send ticks in for identification and testing. They provide mosquito and vector control at no charge.
