LYME DISEASE Prevention For Frederick Residents

Practically everyone above the Mason-Dixon Line has heard of Lyme disease. In Maryland, Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness. The bacterium that causes Lyme disease is called Borrelia burgdorferi; it only takes a tick being attached to you for 24 hours to transmit the bacteria. While everyone knows the name “Lyme disease” and who the culprit to blame for it is, not everyone knows the symptoms and means of prevention.

The symptoms of Lyme disease are particularly unique, namely the bull’s eye rash which is so common at the bite point after the transfer of the bacterium. The bull’s eye rash gets its name from the rash’s shape; it looks exactly like a bull’s eye. According to an article by the state of Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, “From 3-30 days after a tick bite, a gradually expanding rash can occur at the site of the bite in 70-80% of infected people. The rash can expand over several days to up to 12 inches and may resemble a bull’s eye.” But that’s just the beginning; other symptoms can include fever, headache and fatigue. If left untreated entirely, Lyme disease can potentially lead to joint, nervous system, and cardiac system problems.

Preventing Tick Bites & Lyme Disease in Frederick

Now how to prevent tick bites altogether. There are several methods such as looking out for ticks when they are most active (late spring through the fall), wearing long pants and long sleeves to keep ticks of your body, tucking your shirt in and even your pants into your socks. Also, wearing light colored clothing helps you to more easily spot a tick on your clothes. But undoubtedly, the most effective means of ridding your environment of the danger of Lyme disease is through Mosquito Squad of Frederick’s tick barrier treatment.
