Lyme is a bacterial illness. It is caused by bacterium spirochete and spreads by tick bites. It starts in the place of bite and expands by forming a ring of redness. It is diagnosed by clinical signs and detection of antibodies to causative bacteria. It causes abnormalities in skin, joints, heart and nervous systems. It is treated with antibiotics and doxycycline is contraindicated in children and pregnant women, so alternatives like amoxicillin and azithromycin are given.
