November is the final peak tick season with a dramatically increased risk of Lyme disease transmission.
Lyme disease causes by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The key symptom is erythema migrans, that doesn’t appear in all cases. Other symptoms include fever, fatigue, and headaches. If left untreated, the disease can lead to serious complications. The best scenario is in avoiding contact with ticks with permethrin-treated clothing, or pick up the go-to insect repellent DEET. If one of the ticks are found attached to the skin, it should be removed with a special technique shown here.
