Many diseases are spread by contact with animals or by bug bites. Mosquitoes are the most common insect that comes to mind for most people when talking about certain diseases. However, many diseases also are spread by getting bitten by ticks. Lyme disease is one type of disease carried by ticks that has a variety of symptoms. However, there are a few myths about this disease you may not know.

The symptoms of Lyme disease are typically similar to other conditions. Multiple sclerosis and many other autoimmune diseases are often mistaken for Lyme disease. This means some people may be treated for the wrong condition or are suffering unnecessarily due to an incorrect diagnosis. You may want to look at some of the facts about this disease to know what to expect.

There are many symptoms of Lyme disease that may seem obvious. However, some people might not be showing any common signs of this disease. This will mean a rash or other indicator may be caused from a plant like poison ivy or any other allergic reaction. You should look into other reasons for a rash before you jump to this disease as the cause.

People with joint pain could possibly be suffering from Lyme disease. However, this symptom is really too common for a lot of people due to other health issues. Not having joint pain does not mean the chances of having this disease is low. Not everyone with this disease will have this symptom.

Lyme disease is easy to avoid when you take the proper precautions. This will mean wearing long clothing and covering all exposed skin when in an area where ticks are likely to be present. You should also give a pet a bath with a shampoo that is designed to kill ticks. Taking the proper precautions is the best way for you to avoid getting this disease.
