Lyme Disease is a rising issue in the UK and it is important to be properly informed, particularly when there is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions out there about the illness. Lyme disease is predominantly caught from the bite of an infected tick. Whilst the UK countryside is one of the safest in the world, tick bites are probably the highest we face in outdoors in terms of liklihood and impact. Ticks can be as small as a poppy seed and have a painless bite, so they are often missed.
