The tick population in Connecticut is growing, according to a recent article in The Hartford Courant, and unfortunately, scientists have found that a higher-than-average number of those ticks are carrying the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease.
If you go walking in wooded or brushy areas, check your clothes and skin for ticks often. Also, inspect your kids if they’ve been playing outside (and your pets, too).
Lyme Disease may cause fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and a skin rash (sometimes shaped like a bullseye). Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with antibiotics. If not treated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system, and be difficult to treat.
