What age does Lyme disease affect?


Lyme disease can affect people of all ages, including children, adults, and the elderly. However, it is more common in children and older adults because they spend more time outdoors and have weaker immune systems. The majority of cases occur in people living in or visiting areas where the deer tick, which carries the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, is prevalent. It is important to take preventive measures such as wearing protective clothing, using insect repellent, and checking for ticks after spending time outdoors, especially during the warmer months. Early detection and treatment of Lyme disease can help prevent complications and promote recovery.
