Ticks and Tick Disease From late spring through early fall is the time of year during which ticks are most active. It is important to take precautions to avoid a tick bite and the possibility of resultant tick disease. Ticks commonly found in the northeastern area of the United States include the deer tick, lone star tick, American dog tick, and the wood tick. Ticks are most commonly found in the woods and marshy places in bushes, shrubs, leaf litter and tall grass. Many tick- borne diseases can be contracted simultaneously from one tick bite, but not every tick bite transmits disease. Some ticks are extremely small – the tick that transmits Lyme disease may be smaller than a sesame seed. In order to enjoy the outdoors and at the same time avoid tick bites, wear long pants and long sleeves to help keep ticks off your skin. Tuck your shirt into pants, and pants into socks to keep ticks on the outside of clothing. Wear light colored clothing to help you spot ticks more easily. Spray insect repellent on clothes and exposed skin; consult your pharmacist for the type of repellent suitable for you and your family members of different ages. Also talk to your veterinarian about tick control products for your pets, to help avoid your pet bringing a tick into your home. When hiking, walk in the center of the trail when in woods or high grass. Stay away from brushy areas, high grass and leaf litter. Check for ticks daily after being in tick habitat. And remember, ticks can be found in your own back yard! To remove a tick use fine tipped tweezers and protect your hands with tissues or gloves. Grab the tick close to the skin – do not twist or jerk the tick. Gently pull straight up until all parts of the tick are removed. Clean the tick bite with soap and water or an antiseptic. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based rub. Do not use petroleum jelly, a hot match, nail polish or other products to remove ticks. Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in Maryland and is transmitted by the bite of an infected black-legged tick, which must be attached for at least 24 hours for transmission to occur. From three to thirty days after a tick bite, a gradually expanding rash (called erythema migrans ) can occur at the site of the bite in 70-80% of infected people. The rash can expand over several days up to 12 inches and may resemble a bull’s eye. If untreated, Lyme disease may cause a loss of muscle tone on one or both sides of the face, severe headaches and neck stiffness, shooting pains that can interrupt sleep, heart palpitations, dizziness, and pain that shifts from joint to joint. After several months, 60% of untreated patients my develop severe joint pain and swelling, particularly in the knees. Five percent of untreated patients may experience shooting pains, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, and problems with concentration and short term memory. Contact your health care provider if you develop any of these symptoms after a tick bite or after being in a tick habitat. Most cases of tick-borne disease can be cured with antibiotics, especially when treatment is started early. For more information visit www.MaryalndTickOff.org.
