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. Treatment guidelines can be found here.  www.TreatTheBite.com
