Care Plus® Tick-Test - Lyme Borreliose
Tropenzorg has introduced a revolutionary product. The Care Plus® Tick-Test. With this self-diagnosis tick test, you can perform a test yourself to see if a tick that bit you is infected with the borrelia bacteria. These bacteria can cause Lyme disease, a serious infectious disease which is becoming one of the most serious problems in Europe. If the test is positive, you can show it to your doctor so he can prescribe the correct treatment with antibiotics. The advantage of this test is that you can check whether treatment is required immediately after the bite. Up to now, you would have to wait until the red ring (Erythema migrans) appears before starting (longer) treatment. In fact, this is too late because the infection is already chronic.
