People get infected with lyme meningitis after they are bitten by a tick that carries Borrelia burgdorferi or Borrelia mayonii bacteria. Symptoms: Early stage:
  • Symptoms similar to flu, including headache, fatigue, fever and chills.
  • Rash. If you're infected, the red spot will become larger over time while the center of it clears. You don't feel any pain or itch from the red area.
Later stage:
  • Problems in the nerve system.
  • Other parts of your body showing Erythema migrans
  • Pain in joints.
Prevention:
  • Get rid of a tick carefully and soon with tweezers. Apply antiseptic to the area where the tick stayed.
  • Make sure your pets and children don't carry ticks. They are the size of a pin head. So you may not find them if you don't look carefully.
  • Avoid going to woods, bushy areas or grassland.
