For treatment of early or 2nd stage Lyme disease, treatment costs less than $10. If patients use the local grocery pharmacies that offer free antibiotics, the medication will cost nothing.

Can lyme disease cause acne?

Lyme disease can cause acne by several different methods. Late stage Lyme can affect the adrenal glands causing too much or too little cortisol in your system and seems to localize around the facial area and upper back. Also, during treatment while taking antibiotics or anything that kill the bacteria your body can detox through the skin creating pimples mostly on the upper body as well as some on the lower body.

How cases of lyme disease reported yearly to the CDC?

Cases of Lyme are reported by doctors diagnosing Lyme disease to the CDC.. HOWEVER, the testing for Lyme disease can and often give false results, the patient has the disease, but the test is negative and thus no diagnoses of Lyme, so many go undiagnosed. Also, many infected with Lyme are actually diagnosed with different diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS and others, so many will never get a proper diagnosis. And some bitten and they have symptoms don't go to the doctor. The CDC was posted on their site that Lyme was under diagnosed by as much as tenfold, today they say it is under diagnosed. Annually the CDC says there are approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme disease, because of under reporting, this number is much higher, many believe as high as 300,000 and this number has been climbing for years Lyme is the fastest growing tick borne illness.

Who has lyme disease?

It is believed by the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society that 1/4 million people each year are getting sick from Lyme Disease and other tick borne diseases, called co-infections. The CDC reports each year Lyme Disease cases in the U.S., but admit their numbers are likely incorrect and the actual numbers are 10 times higher. Lyme disease has been found in all 50 states. Lyme disease is a systemic infection that results from the bite of a tick and the bacteria, borrelia burgdorfi may be carried by other biting insects such as fleas, mosquitoes and more. It is false to believe that only the Deer tick is a carrier of Lyme, all species can be disease carriers. Most people do not recall being bitten, as ticks can be as small as a poppy seed and have a powerful numbing agent that makes it possible for them to burrow into the skin unnoticed. Ticks do not fly or jump, they crawl up the body and burrow into areas such as behind the knees, under the arms, scalp and neckline. Most people never develop or see the "classic" bulls eye rash that Md's are trained to look for. Lyme has many symptoms, at least 75 symptoms and more have been reported ranging from mild to moderate pain to excruciating neuropathy to mental illness Since symptoms are not the same for everyone diagnosis of Lyme Disease is problematic to say the least, as most U.S. Md's including specialists nationwide, incluing neurologist and Infectious disease Md's are not trained to recognize the symptoms of Lyme Disease. It is imperative to find a Lyme Literate Md that are specifically trained to treat these diseases appropriately. Even if you are diagnosed by a Lyme illiterate Md to have Lyme Disease, they do not test for co-infections which is absolutely necessary in eradicating the disease. Treatment protocols in most cases are outdated and many end up under treated and go on suffering. There is no proof Lyme Disease can be cured with a short 2 week course of antibiotics, but there is much evidence long term treatment can result in remission. Ticks carry other diseases called co-infections and all diseases transmitted must be treated. Under treated or untreated Lyme Disease can be complicated to treat, taking months and sometimes years of oral, IM or IV antibiotics. The blood test given across the country at most all labs and hospitals, is a two step process including the ELISA and Western Blot and is considered extremely unreliable. People who suspect Lyme Disease, need to have blood tests sent to Tick borne specialty labs in the U.S. that are highly reliable and should be used to accurately diagnose Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease has been called "the great imitator" as it mimics many, many diseases and illnesses from migraines, irritable bowel to MS, ALS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and many, many more.

Can lyme disease affect your IQ?

Yes. SEVERLY. Most people who progress to 'late stage lyme disease', meaning they have had it for awhile, develop nerological symptoms. A year ago, reading and writing was extremely difficult for me, with my late stage neurological lyme disease. I couldn't do any kind of basic math, speak clearly, understand questions sometimes etc. althought with antibiotics, you can regain much of your former self (as i thankfully have). it can definitely affect your mind. and if you look at before and after scores, you would notice a difference in your IQ score. but you can change it around again with proper treatment and diagnosis.

Are western fence lizard poisonous?

It is thought that the presence of western fence lizards diminishes the danger of transmission of Lyme Disease by ticks. The incidence of Lyme disease is lower in areas where the lizards occur, and it has been found that when ticks carrying Lyme disease feed on these lizards (which they commonly do, especially around their ears), the bacteria that cause the disease are killed. No. I used to breed them and did plenty of research before i did. Even if research was wrong, i was bitten countless times and not so much as a swelling showed up on my skin
