The individual suffers from the Lyme sickness when bacteria are transmitted into the body through the bite of an infected ‘deer tick’. Lyme results in symptoms such as rash (shape of bull’s eye), weakness, fatigue, fever, cold, body aches and joint swelling, and brief paralysis.

 

The critical thing to be noted is that the ticks spreading the sickness is too tiny and about the size of a seed. Generally, this illness is most common in wooded, forested, and rural territory all over the world. The illness is spreading at a fast pace in Asia and Australia as well.

 

It has been noticed that Lyme infection is curable, however if you or your doctor fails to diagnose it early, then it might result in health issues such as:

 

  • Memory loss
  • Changes in mood or sleep habits
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Heart rhythm irregularities
  • Cognitive defects, like impaired memory
  • Neurological symptoms, like facial palsy and neuropathy
  • Lyme arthritis (Chronic joint inflammation), specifically of the knee.

 

Lyme Illness Treatment

 

Antibiotics are prescribed by expert doctors for treating the Lyme disease, which is likewise the main treatment for Lyme illness. It is viable and all patients recover after this type of treatment. By and large, results may take a long time to appear after the antibiotic treatment is completed.

 

However, you need to keep in mind that individuals who recover gradually can’t accelerate the process by taking extra antibiotics. Additionally, it has been observed that in around 10% to 15% of people who are in early stages of Lyme disease, and if there is substance discharged by the dying bacteria, then it may cause a short worsening of the symptoms.

 

The reaction is noted to happen in 24 hours after beginning the consumption of antibiotics, which may proceed for a day or more, and afterwards it is resolved. However, if such reaction is occurring, then antibiotic treatment should not be ceased, but rather proceeds as initially prescribed by your doctor.

 

Taking Oral Antibiotics – Small Doses and Big Impacts

 

It’s a known fact that oral antibiotics are the standard treatment for early stages of Lyme disease. The dosages incorporate:

 

  • For adults and kids older than 10 – doxycycline (Consult your doctor first).
  • For adults, young kids and pregnant or breastfeeding females – Amoxicillin or cefuroxime axetil (Consult your doctor first).

 

These medicines are highly effective and eliminate the disease and avert complexities in future as well. The prescribed course period is of about 14 to 21 day course of antibiotics.

 

Remember, there’s a strong possibility of Lyme infection if you live or spend a lot of time in the grassy, bushy, or wooded regions where tick thrive. So, it's crucial to avoid potential risk in areas where tick carrying Lyme bacteria seems to be prevalent.
