Myth Busters: All Ticks Carry Lyme Disease
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Derm RF

 

Ticks have gotten a bad rap for carrying Lyme disease, but in truth, only deer ticks carry the disease, and not all deer ticks are infected. Regardless, if you have been out and about in grassy or wooded areas, do a full body check for ticks as soon as you get home. It takes more than 24 hours to transmit Lyme disease so early detection is key. As you look yourself over, pay special attention to the back of your neck, armpits and scalp.

If you do find a tick, don’t panic. Removal is simple. Contact your health care provider for next steps. Alternatively, order your lyme disease test from DNAconnexion to do it in the comfort of your home.
