PARTICIPATE IN LYME
DISEASE SCIENCE CONVERSATIONS
Online discussions with Lyme Expert, Dr. Daniel Cameron on Facebook and Instagram about important Lyme disease topics.
They have found that ticks do feed, but they’ll often fall off, they’ll get scratched off, sometimes they detach themselves. They may detach before they get a chance to become completely engorged. One study even showed that ticks can bite a second time. And so it’s important not to count on seeing a tick attached [a tick bite]. In fact, very few people actually see a tick, or at least not enough people see a tick. So, we don’t rely just on looking for a tick when it comes to preventing Lyme disease or considering it as a possible diagnosis.
