Lyme Disease

What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection, most often caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi in North America. It is transmitted via tick bite. Early symptoms may include a distinctive rash at the site of the bite, headache, fatigue, and fever. If untreated, the progressing infection may cause muscle and joint pain, dizziness, rash on other parts of the body, and in some cases heart palpitations, meningitis, or loss of muscle tone in the face.

Treatment for Lyme disease includes the use of antibiotics, typically tetracycline antibiotics (doxycycline), penicillin antibiotics (amoxicillin), or cephalosporin antibiotics (cefuroxime axetil, Ceftin). When treated in the early stages, recovery is usually rapid and complete.
