Know the Facts
Ticks are a public health epidemic & prevention is key to reducing the incidence of dangerous tick-borne infections.
- Nationwide, there are approximately 500,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year in the United States.
- Not every case of Lyme disease is caught early because the frequency of the telltale rash varies by region.
- Rashes are strain-dependent & the most prevalent strains in each region may not cause a rash, leaving people & doctors to not consider Lyme disease when it is most urgent to treat it in the early stages.
- There are other dangerous tick diseases throughout the country, as well; one transmits in as little as 15 minutes.
- If not treated properly or early, tick diseases can cause permanent damage & trigger secondary diseases that may not go away after the infections are gone.
Some of the misconceptions that exist around tick diseases include:
- tick attachment times for disease transmission
- inaccurate prevention practices
- tick removal methods
