Excellent guidance from Dr. K. We'd add that finding and promptly removing ticks (from a person or pet) can dramatically reduce risk of infection. Once the tick has been removed, save it and have it identified. Only certain kinds of ticks can transmit the agents of Lyme disease, babesiosis and anaplasmosis. Other ticks may transmit other infections. The longer the tick is attached, the greater the risk of infection. Physical samples can be sent, or digital images uploaded, for a rapid, confidential, independent and expert evaluation.
