How to Remove a Tick
Proper tick removal is very important to lessen your risk of disease transmission. Learn the proper technique here!
Order a comprehensive tick analysis by mail and learn what disease causing microbes the tick may be carrying. The testing on ticks is much more accurate than the testing for humans. This does not tell you if you've been infected, it just provides the knowledge of what diseases that tick was carrying.
Lyme Testing — IGeneX
Igenex offers comprehensive testing for tick borne diseases, including a Lyme disease western blot that tests for OspA and OspB. These testing markers are left off of most Lyme disease western blots due to a Lyme disease vaccine that was taken off the market in 2002.
Take this questionnaire developed by Dr. Richard Horowitz to help understand your potential of having one or more tick borne diseases. This is not a definitive diagnostic, rather it is meant to help you understand the range of symptoms you could experience and help you consider whether to seek treatment from a Lyme literate medical doctor.
