The Sooner Treatment Begins
After The Tick Bite
Ticks live in the dirt and suck blood from a number of animals that carry and can transmit multiple disease causing organisms.
Ticks on the DelMarVa peninsula are famous for being infected with multiple pathogens that can quickly spread throughout the body to cause mild to life-threatening symptoms. Waiting to see if you get a rash or if you get sick before treating does NOT make sense!
Remember- Less than half of the people with Lyme disease get a rash and many do not notice any early symptoms.
It's worse for our children- less than 10% get the tell-tale Lyme rash!
Once tick borne disease organisms are entrenched in your body it is more of an impact to both your health and your wallet to get rid of them if you can.
Never, ever, ever depend on Lyme tests performed within a month of a tick bite to give accurate results! Nearly everyone will test negative for Lyme disease within the first 1-4 weeks after being bitten by an infected tick (barring prior exposure).
It takes weeks for your body to produce enough antibodies to the Lyme bacterium to register a positive reading on tests using the current tests and testing methods, and that's if you ever get a positive test at all.
Tests for Lyme disease
75% of the those infected!
The CDC states for every case of Lyme disease reported, at least ten are missed. Those who test negative can be misdiagnosed with a host of other disorders, such as some sort of an unknown viral illness, MS, Parkinson's, ALS, various heart related disorders, ADD, Alzheimers, dementia, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, Lupus, arthritis, Bell's Palsy, autoimmune diseases, dermatitis, hyperactivity, deafness, chronic pain, eye inflammation, blindness, loss of hearing, and the list goes on and on.
According to a CDC study, treatment for early Lyme disease averaged $161 per patient. A patient with longstanding (chronic) Lyme disease spent an average of $61,243 per year, each year, with most insurances refusing to pay the majority of the bills.
Can you really afford to "wait and see" if you get sick from a tick? No, of course not!
