Effect Of Dog Fleas On The Spread Of Lyme Disease Infection?
Good evening, I want to ask if dog fleas can transmit Lyme disease to humans and if so, how can I prevent it? And is the use of spray pesticides, lime and camphor insecticides to prevent the spread of dog fleas in the room of the house?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Lyme disease is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Borrelia burgdoferi via an intermediate tick. Apart from the Lxodes scafularis tick, rats can also transmit the disease. These fleas can attack pets such as cats, dogs and humans. If your pet is exposed to tick disease, you should immediately take it to the vet for further treatment before it spreads.
Lyme disease will cause symptoms in the form of disorders of the joints and nerves. Where the tick bites on the skin, it will reveal a large red spot. There are several things that can be done to prevent the spread of this disease, namely by avoiding places that may be habitats for ticks such as shrubs and grasses and;
use closed clothes when in the grass, check yourself, family, and pets if they are infected with fleas using an insect repellent cream for the skin when doing activities in grassy areas using pesticides can kill fleas but use at home is not effective Thank you. This is the information that can be conveyed. I hope this helps.
