People get infected with lyme meningitis after they are bitten by a tick that carries Borrelia burgdorferi or Borrelia mayonii bacteria.
- 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.
- Problems in the nerve system.
- Other parts of your body showing Erythema migrans
- Pain in joints.
- 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.
