Signs and Symptoms of Lyme Disease
As the weather gets warmer and more humid, more and more pests emerge and spread diseases. Every year, ticks bite a large number of Americans and spread Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a common ailment that can cause an array of symptoms- some more extreme than others. In order to prevent and diagnose Lyme disease early on, it is important to be aware of the symptoms and see a doctor early on if you are bitten. Ticks are small, brown insects that can cling onto clothes and skin unknowingly, so it is also important to check yourself for ticks after spending time outdoors.
