Do you already know everything about ticks? If you are out in the open air, on the playground, in the garden, if you are not training on the asphalt and on the treadmill, but on the field, it is important to update your knowledge! There may be surprises…

The ticks are the most active these months. There are two activity peaks in Hungary: from the end of March to the beginning of June, the second peak occurs in September. If ticks that are ingested in our skin are discovered and removed in a timely manner, they cannot enter the body, as the animal typically only infects the infected person with a small amount of urine. The most important thing is to make sure you keep your ticks home when you get home!

What is the danger?

The tick spread it to man venous encephalitis And a Lyme kуr is a danger, not the tick itself. Let's see how common these infections are! In 2011, 43 cases of tick-borne encephalitis were reported to the National Center for Epidemiology. This represents a decrease compared to the cases registered in 2009 (70) and 2010 (50). In 2011, we learned of 1,681 cases of Lyme Disease, which is less than the number registered in the previous two years (2009: 1,738 cases, 2010: 2,355 cases).

Where's the tick's victim?

The ticks, which are native to about two dozen species in our country, usually clinging to the ends of leaves and whorls, are the perfect moment to climb on their feathers, fur, or clothes. Usually at dawn and after sunset, they typically expect "sacrifice" from 50 to 80 centimeters above the ground. The common tick occurs most abundantly in rich, dense undergrowth in forests, shrubs and bushes, but can also be found in city parks, playgrounds, and small gardens.
One of the former press of the BNTSZ dr. Lacrosse Andrbs we have heard the most important practical tips from the head of the Infectious Diseases Specialist, the Disease Ambulance.

Removing the tick

For this operation pointed tip, available in a pharmacy, spring, made of steel hasznбljunk. With the "tick-box" made of plastic, my patients have only rarely been able to remove it, "said dr. Lacrosse Andrbs. - It is important to hold the tick as close to the skin as possible and not to squeeze your body.
Pathogens can be found in the internal organs of the tick, so any manipulation that causes the tick to germinate or compress the stomach increases the risk of infection. Therefore, it is not advisable, for example, to have a pair of eyecups. Do not disinfect the drip site, as the disinfectant will not last to the bloodstream.

Should we test or test the tick?

You must have heard about the possibility of submitting a tick removed from the skin to see if it makes sense to take further steps to prevent a possible infection. However, Dr. Lakos András does not recommend! The examination does not make sense, because:
1. A large proportion of ticks (up to 50 percent, but up to 100 percent in some assays) can be infected with Lyme bacteria, even without the need for a test all ticks should be considered infectious.
2. We had a lot of patients who, despite the negative ticks, appeared at the tip Lyme spot, so the negative result of the tick test is not safe either.
3. If Lyme is detected in the tick, then only barely 2 percent risk of infecting humans, adheres to the body and causes illness.
4. A positive tick finding on the other hand, it causes patients to panic and encourages doctors to take antibiotics. However, the uptake / recovery of the antibiotic is mostly too small to kill the Borrelians, as who would like to take the full therapeutic dose - 98 percent currencies unnecessarily? At the same time, the lower dose antibiotic prevents the typical clinical manifestation, Lyme spot develops, demonstrates the detectability of the immune response, while probably not killing the pathogens. In such a situation, the infection can remain hidden for years!
5. A serological test is recommended after a positive tick finding. However, the majority of tests give significant positive results in several percentages, so here too - otherwise unnecessary - antibiotikumkezelйs.

The tick must be removed immediately

What are some of the most common mistakes made during tick-boxing?

Do not do anything after the ticking! Don't go to the doctor! According to Dr. Andros Lakos, a sense of duty encourages doctors to take unnecessary and harmful action:
  • inasmuch the tick's tummy tears (not his head, as is usually said), the doctor will not rest until he is somehow removed. However, the larynx, like the legs of a three-legged cat, is attached in a scattered state, and with almost no tools, a needle or a tweezers, it is almost hopeless to eliminate it. From this discomfort, the intervention may result in an inflammatory reaction, raising the possibility of Lyme disease, which is routinely treated with antibiotics.

  • There are also medical textbooks to give after the tick vaccination against tetanus. At the same time, there is no scientifically confirmed information about the tetanus transmitted by the tick, and the simple way to vaccinate has yet to reach medical attention.

  • Doctors love to give vaccine to prevent tick-borne encephalitis after the hiccups. However, this is only effective if the person concerned has received such protection before. One month after the drop, the vaccination series should not be started. After a single vaccination, the antibodies appear only weeks after the infection, the virus reaches the central nervous system.

  • Often ordered - sure, on a sure basis - antibiotics a colleague. This is small enough to kill the Lyme bacterium, but it is enough to suppress clinical signs and make laboratory tests irrelevant.

  • If you do not prescribe antibiotics, then at least some local disinfectant, antibacterial cream, will definitely be ordered. These may cause local irritation, an allergic reaction which then raises the Lyme betegsйg lehetхsйgйt. It is a serious mistake to use steroid cream for inflammation purposes. The steroid makes the borrelians go wild.

  • It is almost normal for a tick to undergo a laboratory test, usually for Lyme disease. Because commercially available tests are the lowest They work with 25 percent of the public positivities, the patient has such a high chance of being prescribed antibiotics in a matter of weeks, when the finding comes to an end. In addition, there is still no immune response in the last few days of dripping, so the test should be negative, so the test is worthless. The doctor who is more knowledgeable in this regard will ask for an examination in a few weeks' time, but the Positive Ratio will not change.
