Dr Oz: How to Properly Remove a Tick & Symptoms of Lyme Disease
American dog tick-Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) is spread to humans by the bite of an infected tick. Symptoms of RMSF typically begin 2-14 days after the bite and often include sudden onset of headache, fever, stomach and muscle pain, and vomiting. When not treated early, RMSF can get worse very quickly, and can potentially end in death, even in previously healthy people. Because early symptoms are often vague and can resemble so many other diseases, it can be difficult to diagnose.
