What to do about ticks?

As potential carriers of Lyme disease, ticks should be closely monitored between the spring and fall. Especially if you go hiking. Here's how to deal with these dangerous arachnids.

    Or, just don't worry about them and you can enjoy your Corona with Lyme!

    After I had malaria ticks would walk over me but never latch on to me. I’d never heard of Lymes disease until I came to the uk 9 yrs ago. I live in Norfolk & camp as much as I can in summer. I also do a lot of hiking, mostly in t-shirt & shorts. I think we are blessed not to have this invasion as I’ve not seen one.

    Good info, but... I had Lyme. Never found a tick, never got a rash. Never had “flu like symptoms”. My first symptom came on overnight. Went to bed fine, in the morning I had a “crick” in my neck that made it hard to turn my head. Within a couple of days that became a horrendous headache. 😫At the ER they thought it was muscular due to the neck pain and gave me muscle relaxers and pain reliever. They helped a bit as long as I was taking them. 🤤 During that time (about a week), I began to get oddly localized and sharp pains in the middle of my forearms 🧐 That’s what made me say “Hmmm, this isn’t a strained neck muscle 🤔”, and return to the doctor. The oddly localized, sharp pain also showed up behind ONE knee 😳 “Fortunately”, my symptoms came on relatively quickly and severe enough that they couldn’t be ignored. Often, however, symptoms are vague or mimic something else (flu, etc.), resulting in a delay in diagnosis- sometimes months or years 😳! Know your body, pay attention to its signals. Advocate for yourself and request (insist on) a Lyme test if your symptoms are dragging on despite treatments for other diagnoses. Unfortunately, the test is not always accurate, but Lyme left untreated can have permanent consequences.

    Fleas too. Fleas carry tape worm. People can be infected with them.
