Prevention to avoid contracting Lyme

Could I have avoided it? How I didn't notice?

These questions are common in persons with Lyme disease. The answer is clear: a hundred percent effective prevention method does not exist. Responsibility isn’t for the one that contracts the illness.

We can not prevent what we don´t know. If health authorities do not inform the population and not prevent the risks of contact with ticks, how will we realize that we can develop this illness?

If we suspect we have developed the disease, but the doctor discards it, what fault do we have?

Advice to avoid Lyme

What you can do is reduce the risk of getting Lyme

Prevention Lyme disease
When you go out on an excursion to the mountain or the countryside, visit adequately: trousers and a long shirt in clear color.
Use mosquito repellent that contains a superior part up to  30% of DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone. Apply it to the clothes and body, mainly back the knees, neck, or armpits.
Check your body turning back home. Ticks place them in the humid parts of the body like the armpits, the scalp. Keep in mind that ticks are little.
If you find a tick, extract it as soon as possible. The only positive way of doing it is with clamps holding the tick from the most attached part of the skin pulling outward with a firm movement. Do not squash the tick with the clamps, do not try to eliminate it because the fluid transmits viruses and bacterias.

Prevention is the key to fighting against Lyme.

To avoid putting our immune system at risk and avoiding the possibility of developing severe neurological illnesses at any time, we need to think about how to protect ourselves from insect bites the same way we do with burns.
