The faster you get on antibiotic the better once lyme spreads and entrenches in the body it's very hard if not impossible to get rid of.

Lyme is NEVER gotten rid of,it can be put into remission & for those with a very strong immune system there might not be any reoccurring issues,but if some trauma or stress lowers the immune systems defense,lyme is right there. Yes,immediate treatment is the best way to deal with lyme,if you know about tick bites/lyme disease. Growing up on a farm & dealing with bites/stings fairly regular we didn't worry/think any thing about a bite/rash. Now they are admitting that lyme is being passed by any tick,mosquitoes & other blood suckers,it is also sexually transmitted,the symptoms are many & varied.Lyme is ignored & misunderstood by many in the medical world , I personally can vouch for that as my life was turned upside down Sept. 9, 2004 when lyme in all its fury unleashed its devastation in me. Quite the ongoing battle,used to be lots of bad days with a few good days mixed in, bad days still persist but the better days out number the bad now... notice i said better days & not good days as the "good" days are rare especially in cold weather,the "good" days will increase with warming outdoor temps. If you find a tick & have a good doctor that will treat you with antibodies right away,you stand a good chance of never having lyme rule your life.

The oldest known human infection of Lyme disease is that of Otzi, the mummy more than 5000 years old that was discovered frozen on a glacier between Italy and Austria. So its been around for awhile.

Damn you! I wanted to continue blaming the government. Now you went and ruined it for me. :)

On a serious note Lyme disease scares the crap out of me. I am in the woods a lot, I have had ticks on me many times. I was tested and negative 2yrs ago. My dog has it.

I had it twice. Caught early and no lasting effects. Cats seem to be immune while it can be serious for dogs. Catch the tick early before the blood sucking starts and I think you will be safe. You just have to inspect yourself after every time in the woods. I think spring is the worst time.

This years deep frost and long stretches of cold should do some damage to the tick population. I believe that is why they have been so bad last year was the milder winters of past.
