Detect the presence of the bacteria that causes Lyme’s disease
Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. B. burgdorferi is transmitted to humans by a bite from an infected tick. Lyme disease occurs in three stages: early localized, early disseminated, and late disseminated.
Early localised disease- symptoms of Lyme disease start one to two weeks after the tick bite. One of the earliest signs is a “bull’s-eye” rash, which is a sign that bacteria are multiplying in the bloodstream.
Early disseminated disease- Early disseminated Lyme disease occurs several weeks after the tick bite. During this stage bacteria are beginning to spread throughout the body. It’s characterized by flu-like symptoms, such as fever, sore, throat, aches, and fatigue.
Late disseminated disease- Late disseminated Lyme disease occurs when the infection hasn’t been treated in stages 1 and 2. Stage 3 can occur weeks, months, or years after the tick bite. This stage is much more severe and can be categorised as severe headaches, arthritis, disturbances in heart rhythm and brain disorders involving memory, mood, and sleep.
As you can see if you leave a tick bite and then Lyme’s disease to be untreated it can become very damaging to your health.
