Useful information and resources provided by Lyme Disease UK
Lyme disease is a rising issue in the UK and it is important to be properly informed, particularly when there is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions out there about the illness. Lyme disease is predominantly caught from the bite of an infected tick. Whilst the UK countryside is some of the safest in the world, tick bites are probably the highest risk we face when outdoors, in terms of likelihood and impact. Ticks can be as small as a poppy seed and have a painless bite, so they are often missed.
