The summer is almost here and we all know that our kids will spend more time outside, playing in the backyard with their friends. Well, this is why you are highly advised to check your children’ skin when they come in, because this can be very dangerous. This is not a mosquito bite, it’s much more serious. This disease is called “Lyme” and children can get it from the bites of black-legged ticks which may have been previously infected with the BorreliaBurgdorferi bacterium.
And the worst and most concerning thing about this is that this disease can be mistaken with the mosquito or spider bites. These are the most common symptoms of Lyme disease: fatigue, fever, joint aches, headache, chills, swelling, numbness, and short-term problems with memory. So, if your kids experience some of these symptoms, you should take them to the doctor immediately. This disease is usually treated with antibiotics.
