Lyme Disease







Lyme disease is an infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi transmitted by the tick, Ixodes dammini.  A rash appears two to thirty days following infection.  The lesion expands forming an annular erythematous lesion, known as erythema migrans.  The center is usually clear, but may become darker, vesicular, hemorrhagic, or necrotic.
