Why is a tick bite called Lyme disease?

Bite can lead to LD. Tick bites may transmit a variety of illnesses if the tick has been infected with a germ that uses the tick as a carrier.Rocky mountain spotted fever, tick bite fever & lime disease are some of the diseases that can be passed by ticks. Not all ticks carry diseases and not all bites will pass the germ.
It's not. A tick bite is not called lyme disease. Ld is an infection that can be transmitted via some ticks.
