Tooth whistle after fastening: Quick to the doctor
If you are out in the hot season, beware of ticks, as the small blood vessels can transmit dangerous diseases. If you are bitten and reddening forms around the bite you should definitely consult a doctor. Because the so-called Wanderroot is an indication of an infection with Lyme disease.
Carriers of Dangerous Diseases
Ticks can transmit dangerous infectious diseases such as TBS or Lyme disease. While the former only occurs in certain risk areas, the latter is widespread throughout the country. Although not all fish disease causes Lyme disease, but after a stay in the countryside, a wandering rinse on the skin marked, should definitely consult a doctor – even though he has not noticed any of the crabs.
Only a small portion of the bites are infected
"The presence of Borrelia in ticks varies widely both regionally and in small scale and can reach up to 30%," writes Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on its website.
According to experts, scientific research has shown that about five percent of people bitten by a pocket are infected with borrelia.
"Only a very small percentage of the infected, about one percent, develop disease symptoms," says RKI.
The signs of the disease are general symptoms such as fatigue, night sweats, fever and unspecified pain and muscle pain.
The so-called "Wanderrode" – a red ring Although it is a symptom of 100 percent, it occurs in only half of the patients.
Red increases daily  "Wanderröte looks like a goal," explains Hans Michael Mühlenfeld from the family association in a message from the news agency dpa.
The skin around the puncture site is pale and around this little bright field spreads the redness. "It takes about three to four days after the bite and stays for about two to three weeks," said the doctor. During this period, the redness gets a little bigger daily.
If you notice such redness, go to the family doctor. This is – regardless of whether the patient remembers a bite – prescribing an antibiotic. "If this is in accordance with the instructions, it effectively combats the infection," explains Mühlenfeld.
If needed, skin redness can be compared to images from the Internet
If left untreated, an infection with Lyme disease can lead to long-term consequences, such as common, myocardial or neuritic
As Mühlenfeld points out in the dpa report, it is therefore absolutely necessary to treat an infection with antibiotics on time.
If you are unsure of a redness after an insect or bite, you can compare with images of the so-called Erythema Migrans on the Internet.
"You can see if you can be affected," says Mühlenfeld.
To avoid infections, best protect against ticks. Ideally you should stay on the roads while walking.
When you walk, always remember to wear long pants and, if necessary, put your trousers in the socks. Specialized sprays, known as repellents, can keep the cloudy crawlies in space.
Further, after a stay in nature, one should carefully search and respond promptly if necessary.
There is a need for urgency after a cruise bite. The animals should be removed as soon as possible because: "The fuse must suck long before the pathogen is transferred," writes RKI.
"The risk of infection increases after a suction time of more than 12 hours. Therefore, removing the bracket at an early stage is the risk of transmission very low." (Ad)
