    Exclamation Pa. Deer Ticks and Lyme Disease

    Advisory: For those that slept on the outer circumferences of the Fairgrounds..be advised ..I'm hearing reports of rashes, flu like symptoms,etc. from some of our local club members..other than from food poisoning.

    This disease is nasty..get checked if early symptoms occur. If you know someone that attended but is not on the MOA forum please pass this along.

    +10. Lyme disease is Very nasty and little understood once it advances past the initial infection, which can be treated with antibiotics. After that it attacks the neurological system, with symptoms all over the place and no good treatment. One initial symptom is a red ring around the bite area, but that doesn't manifest in all cases. Many doctors outside of NE are not familiar with it. If you suspect anything, get it looked at immediately!

    Areas where deer congregate late evenings, early mornings and where they usually lie down for the evening..most likely areas where the grass/brush hasn't been cut..also those paths that led down to Fishing Creek.

    The deer ticks them selves are hard to see..about the size of a pin head..Lyme disease is a very nasty long term neurological disease if not treated.

    This should have been posted somewhere at the Rally..that you all are in a highly populated deer area with known Lyme disease..enough said

    I concur with Clay. Just to be on the safe side some local physicians will recommend antibiotics even if testing results state negative for lyme disease.

    We roast and bake them for 4 days, then send them home with a disease. What more can you expect in a host or stint in the service?

    Just teasing the locals.........

    But, seriously, get it checked out if you feel ill. There's no need to suffer from a curable disease.
