Bite of infected tic: Lime disease is spread by ticks that have acquired the germ in the past and it stays in their system. A tick bite from another of the same species without the ld germ will not do it. The tick must get on your body, settle in for a feeding & feed long enough to pass the germ to you (hours).See 1 more doctor answer
No: There has to be a tick involved. Maybe if you were getting the blow job in a connecticut forest.
Tick, fly bites &...: Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria, borrelia burgdorferi & is commonly thought to be transmitted by deer ticks. However, half of those proven to have lyme don't recall being bitten by a tick (most likely were but did not notice). It is proven that lyme can be transmitted by biting flies & possibly by mosquitoes, fleas, spiders etc. It can be transmitted in utero to babies & possibly sexually.
See details: Not unless it is a deer tick and has been attached to your skin for several hours and is engorged with blood.
What to do if a huge tick in his head and im afraid the tick may be carrying Lyme disease. Can cat's get Lyme disease?
Very unlikely: Lyme disease is not found in the miami area.
I have been exposed to Lyme disease and treated (first stage) is it possible for me to get a natural immunity that can be measured by a lab?
Yes: Even if treated you may still develop antibodies detectable by a blood test. However, sometimes treatment blunts that response and the test is negative.
Sometimes: If lyme is treated early (within days of being infected) it is relatively easy to fully eradicate. The longer it has been present before treating, the more difficult to eliminate. With good treatment most of those with lyme will eventually become symptom-free, but it is possible that many may still have the borrelia bacteria present in the dormant cyst stage. There is no test to prove a full cure.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the test: There are many tests for lyme- elisa, western blot, ifa, pcr, cultures. Testing can be expensive. If you have limited resources I advise the igg & IgM western blot from igenex- their test is more thorough & sensitive than other labs. It costs about $200. No single test totally proves or disproves if one has lyme- it is a clinical diagnosis, but the right tests are very helpful.
Controversial: Doctors disagree on whether "chronic lyme disease" exists at all. It can however take a very long time (weeks to months) for all the symptoms to resolve once the infection is removed.
No: You can only get it from a tick bite.
My son got Lyme disease over the summer. He took antibiotics and now he's starting to get sick again, How is that possible?
Depends on diagnosis: The sickness he has now may be because the Lyme disease was not completely treated or it may not be due to Lyme Disease. You need to discuss this possibility with your physicians and ask then to have him see an infectious disease specialist
