Watch as our medical experts talk about the importance of testing for additional infections that can be transmitted through a tick bite. Ticks can carry many bacteria, viruses and fungi all at the same time and transmit them in a single bite. The most common tick-borne co-infections with Lyme disease are babesiosis, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. These bacterial infections will definitely complicate the treatment protocol for patients with Lyme disease and any or all of these co-infections.
