Some Lyme disease facts:

A rash only appears in 20% of cases

A blood test often has a false negative

After 12 hours of a tick having bitten you there is 0% transmission of the spirokyte

After 24 hours there is something like 12% transmission of the spirokyte

My mom works down the hall from a tick expert at a state experiment station.

I also found a tick on my daughter recently, it was engorged so it had been there a while, but my ped refused to give me antibiotics. I swear I have been seeing symptoms in her all the time but I think it might be my imagination.
