MedlinePlus:33 Lyme disease is a bacterial infection you get from the bite of an infected tick. the first symptom is usually a rash, which may look like a bull's eye. as the infection spreads, you may have a fever a headache muscle and joint aches a stiff neck fatigue lyme disease can be hard to diagnose because you may not have noticed a tick bite. also, many of its symptoms are like those of the flu and other diseases. in the early stages, your health care provider will look at your symptoms and medical history, to figure out whether you have lyme disease. lab tests may help at this stage, but may not always give a clear answer. in the later stages of the disease, a different lab test can confirm whether you have it. antibiotics can cure most cases of lyme disease. the sooner treatment begins, the quicker and more complete the recovery. after treatment, some patients may still have muscle or joint aches and nervous system symptoms. this is called post-lyme disease syndrome (plds). long-term antibiotics have not been shown to help with plds. however, there are ways to help with the symptoms of plds, and most patients do get better with time. nih: national institute of allergy and infectious diseases

MalaCards based summary: Lyme Disease, also known as lyme neuroborreliosis, is related to thrombocytopenia and scrub typhus, and has symptoms including erythema/erythematous lesions/erythroderma/polymorphous erythema, macules and follicular/erythematous/edematous papules/milium. An important gene associated with Lyme Disease is CD40LG (CD40 ligand), and among its related pathways are Malaria and Th17 Differentiation. The compounds pneumococcal and silicone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include heart, testes and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are other and immune system.

Disease Ontology:8 A primary bacterial infectious disease that results in infection, has material basis in borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted by blacklegged tick (ixodes scapularis) or transmitted by western blacklegged tick (ixodes pacificus). the infection has symptom fever, has symptom headache, has symptom fatigue, and has symptom skin rash called erythema migrans. if left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.

CDC:3 Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks; laboratory testing is helpful if used correctly and performed with validated methods. Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics. Steps to prevent Lyme disease include using insect repellent, removing ticks promptly, applying pesticides, and reducing tick habitat. The ticks that transmit Lyme disease can occasionally transmit other tickborne diseases as well.
