 HEALTH UPDATE from the School Nurse 

  

It's officially almost summer and that means tick season!  Because of the warm winter and now warmer temperatures and lots of rain, we are seeing a large increase in the number of bugs this year, especially mosquitoes and ticks.  Ticks carry a number of diseases including the microbe that causes Lyme disease.  Lyme can be a debilitating disease if it is not treated early.  Many people do not even know that they received a tick bite, as the ticks often fall off before being noticed or are in areas not seen easily. If you see any of the following signs, immediately see your doctor and ask to be tested for Lyme disease: 

  

1. A bite that causes a bulls eye rash 

2. Fatigue of unknown origin that lasts for a several days 

3. Muscle or joint pain 

4. Fever or headache that persists and is not related to another illness 

  

Lyme is treated with a long course of antibiotics and long term consequences can be avoided by early intervention, so please do not wait if you think you or child has been infected or are showing early symptoms of Lyme.   

  

Please call our Health Room if you have questions or visit the link below for more info:     http://www.cdc.gov/Lyme/ 

  

Thank you and have a wonderful and safe summer!
