Lyme disease is one of the most dangerous diseases one could suffer from. However, there are not many people who are aware about this disease.

When left untreated, lyme disease can have serious effects on your health. The disease has dangerous consequences such as arthritis with severe joint pain and swelling and extreme fatigue. Karen suggests getting children checked when a parent notices a mark or rash on their child. She also says, “Take a picture with your phone if you see one of these spots on yourself or your family – you might need it to show a doctor down the road what you saw.” Karen will now be monitoring her son for any other possible symptoms.

“The list of things we are watching for is scary – not a list I ever expected to have to watch my kids for, but I am grateful for the fact that we likely caught this in time!!” The stage of rash indicates it must have been from a tick bite he would have received 3-4 weeks ago (we never even saw a tick…). The funny thing is that because my son had been on antibiotics for 24 hours, the spots with the bullseye marking didn’t look as bad as they did yesterday.” Karen explained.

Stay safe!
