Yikes, I had a patient with one of the blistering rashes, but they assured me it was a spider bite. I sent them to the MD anyway- hope it got caught as possible Lyme rash.

Apparently, "spider bite" is a common mistake when it's actually a Lyme rash. I didn't know that.

This is good stuff. As in, good info, not fun. Thanks for sharing.

We’ve each found one on the other on this trip. Both had to be removed with tweezers and were wriggly black-legged ticks that creeped me out!!! Yech . No rashes -yet.
I can’t believe we haven’t found more actually as Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa region have big numbers. And there are sign everywhere warning about them in Quebec, les tiques.

Les tiques - bleaagh! There are some nasty tiques in France with a worse disease than Lyme so it's good we're practising our tique checks chaque jour.
