We could be showing another disgusting picture of a deer tick, but you already know the disease comes from ticks, and you almost certainly know that Lyme disease is practically an epidemic in our area.
We have some thoughts on how to avoid infection, how to identify it, and what to do if you suspect you've been bitten.
If you get infected, in most cases, antibiotics do the trick. But when they the disease goes untreated, Lyme Disease can be devastating.
We want you to know about the disease, how it is spread, and what we at New Milford Medical Group can do to help keep you safe or get you better!
