Lyme disease symptoms: Six lesser-known warning signs you may be infected

How to avoid Lyme disease

Dr Berkowitz advised some simple things a person can do to lessen their chances of being bitten by a tick which include:

Wear an insect repellent when outdoors- check it’s one that repels ticks

Take extra care in wooded areas, long grass and heathland

Cover your arms and legs – tuck your trousers into your socks

Check yourself, your family and your pets when you’re out and about – brush off any ticks that are unattached

Check yourselves thoroughly when you return home – remember you can’t see the back of your body well so get someone else to check too
