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?
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
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:
