Lyme Borreliosis is a dangerous infectious sickness that is caused by bacterial organisms. One of the signs of recognizing this infection is swellings in an affected area. That is just but one of the signs of this infectious disease. Other signs include swellings without the itch, high fever, tiredness and serious headaches. The infection can be detrimental especially when in its advanced stages as it makes movements hard. Your neck also becomes stiff, joints become painful, and the heart palpitates. In this article, we will try to discuss about the question of: is there a cure for Lyme disease and what you should do immediately after noticing the signs and symptoms mentioned above.

Researchers on this illness indicate that after one month of infection you develop symptoms such as repeated swellings, tiredness, and memory loss. Many people wonder how the disease gets transferred from a person to another. You need to realize it is the ticks that transmit the illness through bites.

The Lxodes Genuses species in the family of ticks are responsible for spreading this infection. For one to be infected with the illness, the tick attaches itself to the body for not less than two days. Another important thing to note is the disease is not transferable to people; rather it can be gotten from foods or other animals.

At the initial stages of contacting the illness when you go for a blood test, it will possibly test negative. We all know that prevention always better than cure. Let us then look at how you can prevent the illness. The first step is to avoid being bitten by ticks. Prevention means you need to dress well by wearing long clothes.

Health hygienists recommend that people should regularly spray their house with pesticides to kill all ticks in the house to reduce their numbers. When the numbers of the ticks are small, you will also reduce the likelihood of the tick sticking on your clothes or when sleeping on the bed. However when you find that one has stuck on your body, you should remove it with tweezers. You should not allow a tick to suck your blood until it gets full because it is the only way you can easily get Lyme.

Lyme diseases can be treated by taking antibiotics. Even though the bite may be very discomforting, you get rid of the discomfort by immediately taking the antibiotic. The antibiotics reduce the effect of the symptoms as well as treat the disease. Additionally, you can also visit a health specialist to get medication for the illness.

Another fact to take note of is that, the first symptoms of the infection start showing up withing two days to about three weeks. For this reason, you should take action immediately after the bite. Even so, overusing the antibiotics can be detrimental since the bacteria can form a resistance making the medication ineffective.

Research is still ongoing to look for a proper vaccination. Antibiotics such as cefotaxime and doxycycline have been so effective in treating Lyme disease. If you take less than seventy-two hours after the tick bite, you will reduce the likelihood of severe symptoms.
