Tick Alert in Central Massachusetts
This past weekend, after spending time in the woods and cleaning up the yard, both my husband and son found ticks on themselves. These little bugs carry and transmit Lyme Disease, which can cause severe neurological damage if not treated. If you find a tick on your body, contact your physician. Often, a person with a tick bite can be treated with a prophylactic course of antibiotic to prevent the development of Lyme Disease.
Ticks love wet leaves. So if you are out in the woods the next couple of weeks, please be sure to use a bug repellent, and check perform a thorough body check when you come inside.
Please contact your physician for exact medical advice on dealing with tick bites.
