Infectious Ticks

Some patients develop a round, bulls-eye rash. This is the spot of the tick bite. Antibiotics are used to treat this stage of the disease. Symptoms for stage two of Lyme disease are not consistent, and may disappear on their own. Many patients that exhibit stage two symptoms do not have the rash that characterizes stage one. In addition to the aforementioned symptoms, many patients experience blurred vision, fainting, stiff neck and joint inflammation. Facial paralysis, hallucinations, nausea, and vomiting are not uncommon. Antibiotics are given to these patients intravenously, due to the severity of its affect on the nervous system.
