Preventing Lyme Disease in Millburn, NJ
Understanding how Lyme disease is contracted is key to preventing it in the future. Ticks live in heavily wooded areas, so be sure to avoid areas with thick woods. Always check for ticks before returning inside, even if you are not near the woods. Additionally, wear long pants, closed shoes, hats, and other protective gear to avoid a tick bite. Be sure to pay attention to your local news for updates on tick alerts.
Everyone is at risk for contracting Lyme disease, even healthy children and adults. If you are experiencing Lyme symptoms, or need assistance with removing a tick, visit AFC Urgent Care Short Hills. Our providers can plan appropriate treatment and offer more advice on tick bite prevention.
