No need for anyone to look anything up, because I've been doing that and finding conflicting info. I just want to know what you believe.
We do not remember for sure, but recall that my tick may have been a Lone Star tick. Could have been a nymph, it was so tiny ON THE FIRST DAY. (daughter thought it was a little mole or freckle) The CDC, amongst others, has stated that Lone Star ticks do NOT carry Lyme. They carry STARI which has lymelike symptoms, but they do not become chronic.
I frequent an area that has all kinds of ticks. I don't know how one could be so sure a certain tick does not carry a certain disease (Lyme) -- unless there is some kind of biological reason.
Input? Knowledge? Thanks!
