Lyme Disease is caused by a tick that is infected with bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Generally in most cases it can be cured in 2 to 4 weeks with a course of oral antibiotics. However, symptoms can last for 6 months or more after finishing treatment.
There are a wide range of symptoms that can occur if left untreated. It will depend on the stage the infection is at. You can be dealing with rashes, facial paralysis, and arthritis. It is important that you get treated.
