Can you have a glass of wine or 2 on it? I know to stay out of the sun. I’m also taking these herbs from cape cod called lyme-2. Please comment or text me on my number in my bio.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that can be spread to humans by infected ticks.
Early-stage symptoms can include headaches, flu-like symptoms, joint pain and sometimes a rash that can look like a bullseye.
A number of celebrities suffer from Lyme disease, including Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber and Shania Twain.
