Tick and Vector Borne Diseases
Exposure to Lyme and other tick borne diseases can create a minor inconvenience or become a life time struggle. Treating aggressively and quickly can make the difference in the final outcome. The old "wait and see approach" is not advised! The "one-dose of doxycycline cures all" theory shortly after a tick bite is also not advised. If you suspect you've been exposed to ticks, please contact your health care professional and be properly treated immediately.
