Lyme disease
The infectious disease is here in Illinois

Lyme disease, originated in the wooded areas of rural communities has migrated over two decades into some suburban Chicago backyards. Carried by birds, small mammals, and, in particular, deer, people can take proper precautions in the same way that they protect against mosquitoes. “(However,) we don’t want to scare people,” says director of population health services for Lake County, IL Mark Pfister, “from going out(side).”

Transmitted by ticks, the bacterial lyme disease was first identified in an area located by Old Lyme Connecticut. Since 1975, it has been growing as a problem. particularly in the NE United States. Healthcare officials there, and in N. California, Wisconsin and Minnesota have been cautioning people to avoid tick bites. In particular, deer ticks get the bacteria as they feed on small mammals such as mice; and domestic pets (dogs, horses, even cattle) are often infected with the bacteria and develop arthritis.

Symptoms of Lyme Disease
The symptoms change during the length of time a person has been infected. In approximately three quarters of all infections, a red, ring-like rash appears within the first month. It then grows to look like a bullseye shape, up to two in. and are not painful. With no treatment, symptoms expand to include feelings like the traditional flu — with nausea, headaches stiff-neck, memory problems, temporary paralysis of facial muscles and even heart irregularities. Physicians can treat Lyme Disease with oral and/or intra-venous antibiotics, depend upon upon each person's particular symptoms.
