All About Lyme Disease (Borrelia Burgdorferi)
FACTS: First identified in the 1970s in the United States near Lyme, Connecticut, Lyme Disease is now one of the most commonly reported tick-borne illnesses.
The Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium was identified as the cause of the disease in the early 1980s, though DNA-analysis of rodents and ticks in museum collections demonstrates that the bacterium has existed for centuries, if not millennia. Blacklegged ticks (or deer ticks) pass the bacterium from small animals to humans.
Although common symptoms include aches, fevers, and fatigue, the signature symptom is an expanding, bull's-eye rash (or EM, erythema migrans). Typically, the rash spreads out from the site of the tick bite, appearing anywhere from a few days to a month after the bite. As the rash grows, the origin fades leaving a ring that resembles a bull's-eye.
When the signature rash is present and tick-exposure is presumed, antibiotic treatment is recommended. However, the rash develops in only 80% of cases, so where symptoms and tick-exposure warrant further medical examination, laboratory testing is also available.
Untreated, Lyme disease can lead to arthritis, facial paralysis, meningitis, and even cognitive disruptions such as memory loss and mood changes. So when you're in the country, keep an eye out for ticks, or you could end up a target.
I truly enjoyed receiving my little lime green Lyme Virus creature.
He is a well behaved 🦠
and plays well with Spikey my other
Giant Microbe I received as a gift, who is also a well behaved 🦠
My grandson loved this microbe along with others he has. I wish that the writeups after each microbe on your website were included with each microbe, explaining just what they are and what they do. Such a great teaching experience added on!
I got this for my 15 yr old little cousin after she was diagnosed with lymes and as been veey ill. She loves it takes it with her to all her doctors appointments. Helps with the anxiety.

Great condition and quick shipping
I’ve bought several of these mini Care Bears to add to a robe pj Care Bear creation for 18!inch doll that I make for my Etsy shop. These little bears really make the outfit special. This shop has great service, fast shipping and a good price. materialgirldollshop.etsy.com
Perfect to cheat on tests, jk but its amazing perfect for my collection
No issues on my end, I wish there were more in stock since the prices are great for some of the harder to find ones.
This Micro Chucky is absolutely adorable!! He is so much more detailed than I expected and comes with his own micro machete!!😍
I bought it for a kid that I can keep busy with playing the sand and making the little Sponge Bob boat move. Heck! I even like the toy! Also makes a really cool keychain.
Title says it all

Very pleased with my shopping experience and quick delivery. As the title states something new to add to my smallest toy collection.

Thank you so much! Great communication from seller, product was packaged securely, and will buyer from seller again!
I got my order quickly and didn't have any issues.
I love the uterus and bladder I ordered. They’re even cuter in person than I expected. The “angry bladder” lives up to it’s name.
