Lyme Disease Transmission

Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a bacterium usually transmitted to ticks through an infected host, such as a bird, rodent, or deer. The infected tick then attaches itself to the skin of a human using its tiny legs. Because it is so small (the largest ticks measure about 2.7 mm in length), many people don’t realize that the tick has fastened itself to the skin. In order for the disease to be transmitted, the tick must be attached for at least 36 hours. Ticks don’t bother us without a reason; they want our blood. Once it starts feeding, it can pass on the disease into its host’s bloodstream. The longer it feeds, the more likely it is to transmit.

 

Common Symptoms

The infected person can start feeling the effects of Lyme disease within a month of transmission. Fevers, chills, headaches, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes are common, as well as a rash that can grow up to a foot in length. After the first month, more serious symptoms can occur, such as arthritis, dizziness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, shooting pains, brain and spinal cord inflammation, and short-term memory loss.

Lyme disease is generally treated with antibiotics that usually heal the person quickly. But in some cases, you can feel the effects for up to six months, or longer if you wait to be treated after infection.
