May PSA

National Lyme Disease Awareness Month

May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month and MAPA wants to remind you to protect yourself and your loved ones.  Johns Hopkins Lyme Research Center offers advice on prevention of tick bites and risk of Lyme Disease

  • Create a tick-free zone around your house
    • Keep lawn mowed
    • Create a tick barrier between lawn and woods
  • Enjoy the outdoors safely
    • Avoid tall grass
    • Stay in the middle of hiking trails
  • Protect yourself and your children by wearing protective clothing treated with tick pesticides and treating your skin with insect repellent
    • Wear long sleeves and long pants tucked into socks avoiding sandals 
    • Apply Permethrin to clothing and insect repellent to your skin
  • Perform tick checks after coming in from the out of doors and showering
    • Inspect both visually and by feeling 
    • Showering can wash off ticks before they attach
  • Remove ticks once found immediately by grasping them with a tweezers and pulling them off the skin
    • Removing a tick in the first 24 hours dramatically reduces the risk of Lyme disease, and is your best protection in preventing yourself from getting Lyme disease

 

The CDC website offers a wealth of information on signs & symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
