How to Treat Lyme Disease?

Medical Treatment:
  • Lyme disease is usually easier to treat if it is diagnosed early
  • Check your skin and your kids or pets skin regularly after being outdoors
  • Tick bites are not always painful. Unless you see it on your skin, you may not notice a tick
Do the following things to remove a tick safely:
  • Use a tick-removal tool or fine-tipped tweezers
  • Catch the tick as close to the skin as possible
  • Pull upwards slowly, taking care not to squeeze or crush the tick
  • Dispose of it when you have removed it
  • Clean the bite with soap and water or antiseptic
  • You should see your GP if you get flu symptoms such as headaches, circular red rash, aching muscles or feeling sick, feeling hot and shivery and if you have been bitten by a tick or visited an area in the last month where infected ticks are found
  • You may be prescribed a course of antibiotics for a 3 week by your GP. It is important to complete the course, even if you start to feel better
  • For antibiotic injections, some people with severe symptoms will be referred to a specialist
