Lyme borreliosis

Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is a bacterial infection primarily transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks (Ixodes scapularis and Ixodes pacificus) in regions where the disease is prevalent. It is caused by the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi.


The characteristic symptoms of Lyme disease include fever, fatigue, headache, muscle and joint aches, and a distinctive circular rash often resembling a "bull's-eye" called erythema migrans. If left untreated, the infection can spread to various body systems, potentially leading to more severe symptoms, including neurological and cardiac complications.


Early detection and prompt treatment with antibiotics are crucial for effectively managing Lyme disease and preventing long-term complications. However, it does not guarantee that you will not suffer from long-term symptoms. Unfortunately, if they do appear later after antibiotics were given in the first 30 days, the disease often becomes chronic and lasts for years.
