The tick bite can cause not only encephalitis but also Lyme disease, or Lyme borreliosis, a dangerous infectious disease that is capable of causing serious damage to the central nervous system, heart, and joints as it progresses. The number of cases is increasing in all European member states and ticks carrying the disease-causing borrelia are found on every continent of the world.
The prevalence of infected ticks is increasing due to climate change, and with the arrival of warm weather tick activity is increasing – they are found not only in forests and meadows but also in urban parks, home lawns, and beaches.
Lyme disease is caused by spirochete bacteria - borrelia - which are transmitted by ticks. The bacteria spread through the body, affecting the nervous system, joints, skin, heart, and other organs. There is no build-up of immunity after Lyme disease. If your immune system is weakened, you may also get a recurrent illness with Lyme borreliosis.
The incubation period of the disease can range from a few days to several months, and its symptoms are unspecific, so Lyme disease is often not diagnosed in time.
If tick encephalitis can be protected by vaccination, there is still no vaccine against Lyme disease and general safety precautions should be followed. The disease is diagnosed in a laboratory as well as after symptoms. Confirmed Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics.
If Lyme disease is not detected early or treated correctly, symptoms can appear weeks, months, or even years after the tick bite. The bacteria multiply in the body and are spread through the blood to all organs. As the disease progresses, skin redness, pain, and swelling in the joints appear, often affecting the knees, ankles, elbows, and hands. The pain is intense and recurs regularly and may migrate to different parts of the body.
To fight infection, the body needs to be provided with the nutrients it needs. The stronger the body's protective reaction, the easier the symptoms of the disease and the better the recovery will be, and the chance of re-infection will be reduced.
