  • Great article! Very informative!

    • also, less than half of lyme patients ever see a beyslule rash. if you do see a rash, that in itself is diagnostically indicative of lyme infection; but you can be infected without ever seeing a rash of any kind.

  • I have Lyme disease & am an actvie member of a Lyme organization. Over the past several years, I have spoken to many people with Lyme disease. For those that did develop the bulls-eye rash, they claim the rash resulted after a mosquito, gnat, or yellow fly bite. TICKS ARE NOT THE ONLY TRANSMITTER OF LYME DISEASE ! Borellia burgdorferi aka Lyme bacteria, is a spirochete form of bacteria. It’s in the same family as the bacteria that causes Syphilis. Lyme disease CAN also be sexually transmitted.
