Justin Bieber shared on his Instagram on Wednesday that he has been diagnosed with Lyme disease.

He was also recently diagnosed with severe other condition of chronic mono. He also mentioned that he is going to share a documentary series on YouTube.

The 25-year-old singer wrote, “You can learn all that I’ve been battling and OVERCOMING!!”

What is a Lyme disease, and what are the things you should need to know about them? Lyme disease is one of the most common conditions that is caused by ticks in the country and because of the climate crisis in the present, it could get more.

The symptoms for this disease are fever, chills, body aches, swollen lymph nodes, neck stiffness, shortness of breath, headache, fatigue, rash and a lot more. When someone gets bitten by a tick, a small red bump will be visible. It would look like a mosquito bite and within 3- 30 days, a rash will show up and expand in the bitten area. It would look like a “bull’s eye”, if that shows up then Lyme disease it surely is.

This rash will become itchy or painful. It could also feel warm when it is touched.

Majority of the people would develop this rash and for some even could originate in other parts of the bodies. This could lead to severe condition if this is left untreated as the infection would spread to the joints, hearts and the nervous system according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

After an extended period, the patient would experience swelling brain membranes and could have temporary paralysis of one side of the face.

Where do you get this? Four specific bacteria cause this disease. An infected tick transfers its bacteria when it bites to something.

Deer ticks and black-legged ticks are known in the county for carrying this disease. They are often common in spring and summer months when those small ticks, called nymphs, are in their feeding phase and that’s when people are also mostly outside walking in the forest or ground, where these ticks usually like to live.

These ticks are tiny and could be as small as a pinhead, so one has to look closely. These ticks must be removed within 24 hours from the body to avoid the risk of having the Lyme disease.

The longer the tick’s body is in the human skin, the more likely the infection will be.

Using of tweezer while steadily pulling the whole body of the tick would be the best idea. After that, spread antiseptic on the area. The standard treatment for this disease is oral antibiotics which should last from 10-14 days. If it affected already the nervous system, a high dosage of medicines is given, from 14-28 days.

The treatment will help in eliminating the infection and recover from the symptoms.

Most people who are given antibiotics make a full recovery unless they are treated later after the tick bite. To avoid this, wear insect repellant with 20% DEET and check for ticks regularly when spending a lot of time outdoors.
