Tick season is upon us and the number of Lyme Disease cases tend to skyrocket between May and August.
Many of you will spend time in the great outdoors or your yards, so it’s important to know how to protect yourselves.
The CDC says ticks tend to live in grassy, bushy, or wooded areas and can even be found in people’s yards and on animals.
A traditional sign of Lyme Disease is that Bullseye looking rash.
There’s also potential to develop Bells Palsy.
But further along into the disease, neurological disorders become more likely.
When you do remove ticks, the recommended way is to place tweezers between the head of the tick and your skin and rip it off. Sheehan say to not squeeze the head of the tick, burn it, or use chemicals to remove it.
