Lyme is an infectious disease caused by a type of Borrelia bacteria. It is transmitted by infected Ixodes genus ticks when they bite and stay attached for long hours. Common signs and symptoms include:
- Expanding redness that originates at the site of the tick bite
- Joint pains
The best prevention would be to take measures to get rid of ticks in the household and ensure one does not get bitten by them either.
