Russian doctors listed the symptoms of a dangerous tick bite and explained what to do in case of warning signs.
Infectious disease doctor Alexei Rtischev, in an interview with RIA Novosti, said that an arthropod bite after outdoor recreation may indicate the appearance of fever and a rash.
– Even if you did not find a tick on the body, it cannot be guaranteed that it was not. It can fall off on its own, and the infectious agent will nevertheless enter the bloodstream, says Rtishchev.
After a bite, both children and adults experience the same symptoms: fever and rash. Infectionist Natalya Prokhorova urged not to panic and try to remove the tick as quickly as possible: by yourself or by contacting the nearest emergency room. After the bite, you need to pass the tick for infections, if they are identified, be sure to consult an infectious disease doctor.
Note that in the Volgograd region has already started the epidemiological season of infections that are transmitted to humans along with a tick bite. The first case of a bite was recorded in Volgograd in March.
