Encourage your child to wash hands after using the bathroom.
See “Fall Advisory”
Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted by deer ticks that are the size of a pinhead, dark brown in color and hard to see. The more common wood tick or dog tick does not carry Lyme disease, which is larger in size. It is not contagious. It occurs most commonly between the months of March to October.
The likelihood of passing on the infection depends on how long a tick was attached to your skin. For Lyme disease to be transmitted, the tick needs to be attached for 24-48 hours.
If child develops any of the above symptoms they should be brought to the office for further evaluation and treatment.
