While in the past it was said that only deer ticks could pass Lyme Disease, it has now been proven through research that many types or ticks, and possibly other bugs can pass Lyme disease and other tick borne infections. See Research Here. Lyme is not the only infection passed by ticks so please visit:Co Infections to learn more.
Also less then half the people who get infected with Lyme Disease ever develop the “Bull’s Eye” rash. Some develop other atypical rashes and some don’t have any rash at all. As said in the prior paragraph ticks also spread many infections, and those infections can cause different rashes too.
Note: It is not necessary to have a rash to have Lyme Disease or other Tick Borne Infections. According to International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) less then 50% of Lyme patients develop a rash. And for those who do, it may not be the typical bull’s eye rash.
