In brief: Rash, flu symptom

There are a number of tick borne illnesses.
To get lyme disease you would first have to be bitten by an infected tick in an area of the country with lyme disease. The early symptoms are a rash and sometimes fever, headache cold or flu like symptoms. This can be followed by other rashes, neurologic symptoms, joint swelling , joint pain, and cardiac ( heart) symptoms.
