Basically, Lyme disease is treatable, you just have to come to the doctor if you notice symptoms..
It's much more problematic if it's not been treated soon after infection. I've a friend who was bitten nearly ten years ago - it was diagnosed seven years ago, and finally dealt with about five years ago. However, it has caused permanent damage that means she still suffers. It's really nasty.

If you get a bulls-eye rash after a bite, get treatment. The trouble is, you don't always know you've been bitten, and you don't always know that you've been infected.
