Lyme Disease

 

This disease is often characterized by the bull’s eye rash known as Erythema chronicum migrans, which appears at the site of the infected bite. This rash can take from three days up to a month to occur after the bite. According to the Center for Disease Control, only 70-80% of people that are bitten get this rash. Which can be scary, since this is the clinical sign that doctors use to diagnose you. If you are unknowingly bitten and do not get the rash you could be diagnosed to late for easy treatment.
