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.
