Why Prompt Treatment Is Critical
After being bitten by a tick, it’s important that you act quickly to lower your chances of contracting Lyme disease. Not only are Lyme disease symptoms highly unpleasant, but if left untreated, this condition can worsen over time and damage your heart, nerves, joints, and other bodily systems. Fortunately, removing a tick within the first 24 hours after being bitten can greatly reduce your chances of developing Lyme disease.
