Lyme Disease—Current State of Knowledge: Veterinary Medical Research

Temmesfeld, M

LNSLNS Since this is an anthropozoonosis that can affect grazing animals, especially horses, a look at research results from veterinary medicine is worth while, as this discipline has come to similar evaluations of clinical course and laboratory correlations.

I missed any comment about the effectiveness of insect repellents, because "wearing appropriate clothing" in the middle of summer is wishful thinking, especially for children. Searching the bends of the joints, the interdigital spaces especially on the feet, the gluteal folds, and the region behind the earlobes is essential.
