PENNSYLVANIA LEADS NATION IN LYME DISEASE CASES........

 

Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years, and for the first time, deer ticks have been found in all of its 67 counties, the state Department of Health reports.

 

The number of Pennsylvanians diagnosed with the disease also continues to grow.  Between 2013 and 2014, the cases of Lyme disease in the state jumped 25 percent, from 5,900 to 7,400, the Health Department says.  In addition, less than 50 percent of those diagnosed with the illness recall being bitten, according to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that the diease is most common in children, older adults, and others, such as road crew workers, firefighters, and park rangers, who spend time outdoors and have higher exposure to ticks.

 

How To Protect Yourself......

 

  • Know where ticks live - near the ground, in leaf litter, grasses, bushes, and fallen logs.
  • Dress defensively - shoes, socks, long pants, long sleeves, tiw back long hair and wear a hat.
  • Use repllent on exposed skin - repellents with DEET, picaridin, or lemon eucalyyptus oil are the most effective.
  • Check for ticks - when outdoors, periodically inspect your clothing and skin for ticks.
  • Take a shower - Once home, take a shower right away to wash away unattached ticks and thoroughly inspect yourself.
  • Put your clothes in the dryer - Running your clothes in a hot dryer for 10 minutes before you wash them will kill ticks.
  • Protect your pets - Pets are tick magnets consult with your veterinarian about tick protection for your pets.
