Given that the ticks are the size of a poppy seed, you’ve got to have pretty good eyes. While pulling upward with steady pressure, remove it with a pair of finetipped tweezers whenever possible. Furthermore try to remove them with the tweezers, if parts of the tick remain in the skin.

CDC epidemiologist Paul Mead, MD, says there’s been a steady, gradual increase in cases of the disease and the areas where the ticks live. In accordance with a recent CDC report, the ‘blacklegged’ tick is now present in nearly half of counties in 43 states, a jump of nearly 45percentage since 1998. Northeast continues to have the most concentrated areas of Lyme cases. Although, about 10 of dogs with Lyme disease shall be ill. They can get sick. Common symptoms are lameness, a fever, lethargy, and enlarged lymph nodes. For example, they mimic the flu fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and muscle and joint aches. You should take this seriously. Appearance of a ‘bullseye’ rash the kind with a spot in the middle and a ring around it is a clearer warning sign.
It shows up in almost all people infected with Lyme and begins at the site of the tick bite after 3 to 30 days and gradually expands. For most people, the disease causes ‘flulike’ symptoms. Most common cause of hair loss is genetics you inherit the tendency to lose hair from either or both of your parents. On top of that, it’s called malepattern hair loss or ‘femalepattern’ hair loss. Shrinking follicles produce thinner hair and eventually none whatsoever. Usually, while women often have thinning of the hair on the top of the head, men generally develop bald spots on the forehead area or on the top of the head.
Public health officials report between 30000 and 36000 the disease cases a year. The total number of deer which carry the ticks probably plays a bigger role, says Mead.
