Hi! Babesiosis is a very rare disease, so don’t worry. There are some facts about disease for you. Babesiosis is, serious, and sometimes fatal disease spread by the northern deer tick. Ticks can carry a parasite called Babesia microti that attacks the red blood cells of many animals, including man.
The symptoms of babesiosis normally begin about a week after a tick bite with a gradual onset of malaise, anorexia and fatigue. This is followed several days later by high fever, chills, drenching sweats, muscle pain, joint pain and headaches. As with malaria, these symptoms can continue over a protracted period (several days to several months) or can abate, then recur. There is no specific treatment for babesiosis. However, some medications used in the treatment of malaria have also been useful in the treatment of babesiosis.
