At AFC Urgent Care Norwalk, we can evaluate any suspicion or evidence of lyme disease. Although the months between April and September are the most active months for ticks, it is important for you and your family to take preventative measures all year-round.
Here are our recommendations for decreasing your risk of tick bites:
- Avoid wooded and bushy areas with high grass
- Walk in the center of trails
- Wear protective clothing such as pants and long sleeves
- Conduct a full-body tick check, and shower after outdoor activities.
- Examine your outdoor gear and pets for ticks
