Tick Pictures and Lyme Patient Rash Pictures

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. See ILADS Lyme Quick Facts Here.

  1. I’ve have five different incidents of finding a tick at the base of my scalp. From your photos, all were deer ticks.
    Only one was attached. And since then, I’ve been more tired than usual and have occasional severe joint pain never experienced before the tick bite. No rash. Fever, only lasted 24 hours.
    I hesitate to go to Dr because I have no health insurance and make a Very low wage.

    1. I feel for you BillieJean but am going to push you to go. Hopefully you will get a doctor knowledgeable in Lyme disease, which sadly is rare but the only hope in it not becoming “chronic” if it’s Lyme that you have is getting it treated right away. Believe me, once it becomes late stage Lyme, the amounts of money you will have to spend to just “maintain” it will far outcost what you will ahve to pay now for a doctor visit. Plus once its in late stage its really hard to cure it, its mostly just managing it and it’s a lifetime battle, diet change, supplements, meds, pain management. So please, if you can find a way, find a doctor to treat it now. <3 I wish you the best and hope you don't end up like me, disabled in bed.This organization helps patients pay for Lyme tests when they have available funding, check it out. http://www.ilads.org/campaign/lyme-tap.php
