A couple of weeks ago I found a tick. Right under my bra strap. I don’t like to think about how much of my body it must have crawled over to get there.
I’ve never knowingly been bitten by a tick before but I know they can transmit the very nasty Lyme disease. It’s a bacterial infection which if treated promptly with antibiotics generally causes no problems. If left, however, it can be utterly debilitating as the bacteria can attack the central nervous system, brain, heart, joints, and eyes, and can also cause skin rashes.
