For How To Treat Lyme Disease, read this.


Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection caused by a tick bite.

Symptoms begin about a week after the bite occurs.  

Lyme Disease gets its name from the place where it was first discovered - Old Lyme, Connecticut.  A doctor diagnosed it in teens formerly misdiagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.  


Each year, Lyme Disease affects about 300,000 people in the United States, and another 65,000 in Europe.  




Symptoms of Lyme Disease

Symptoms of Lyme Disease begin with an increasing area of redness emanating outward from he bite wound.  The red area is neither itchy nor painful.  Roughly 1 out of 4 Lyme Disease sufferers do not develop this symptom.

That's why many people ignore it and hope it heals on its own.  


Initial symptoms of Lyme Disease most often occur between May and September.


Later symptoms of Lyme Disease may include fever, headaches, body aches, joint stiffness, fatigue, facial paralysis, and memory loss.  



How To Treat Lyme Disease


As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  


Probably the best method for preventing Lyme Disease is avoiding ticks.  Live in urban areas, for instance.  


If ticks cannot be avoided, wear long pants when walking in wooded areas or near trees.  

When you get home, take a bath or shower, and check yourself thoroughly for ticks, especially in your hair.  

If you find one attached to your skin, remove it with a pair of tweezers, making sure to remove the head of the tick as well.  The tick's head is embedded slightly under the skin.  

Then wash the area with soap and warm water.   


If an infection occurs, it's a very good idea to SEE A DOCTOR who can tell you How To Treat Lyme Disease.  


Effective antibiotics against Lyme Disease include Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, and Cefuroxime.  


Home remedies include topical treatments, such as a paste made of turmeric and lemon juice, applied to the infected areas.
