It's tick season!  Please check your children for ticks regularly as they play outside in grassy areas. 

Lyme disease is on the rise in our region of the country so here is a quick review on signs and symptoms of Lyme disease.  
  • In the early stages of Lyme disease, you may experience flu-like symptoms that can include a stiff neck, chills, fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, and joint pain. You also may experience a large, expanding skin rash around the area of the tick bite.
  •  In more advanced disease, nerve problems and arthritis, especially in the knees, may occur.
  •  Avoid tick bites by dressing defensively and using repellent.
  • Learn how to check for ticks, so if you or your children are bitten, you know how to remove them properly.
  •  And if you do contract Lyme, get prompt treatment as Lyme disease imitates a variety of illnesses and its severity can vary from person to person
