another thing to watch out for:
Rocky Mountain Spotted fever – Transmitted by many species of ticks, including dog ticks, brown dog ticks and wood ticks (all larger than the deer tick and easier to spot) Rocky Mountain spotted fever is now a misnomer since it occurs in almost every state in the U.*., Canada, Mexico, Central and South America.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever was first reconfirmed in 1896 in the Snake River Valley of Idaho and was originally called “black measles” because of the characteristic rash. By the early 1900s, the disease spread to parts of the United States as far north as Washington and Montana and as far south as California, Arizona, and New Mexico.
The highest incidence of Rocky Mountain spotted fever is among children five to nine years old. In 1997, 831 cases over all ages were reported to the CDC. In the last three decades, more than 22,000 cases have been recorded.
Symptoms typically include headache, fever, restlessness and loss of appetite. After the third day of infections, a skin rash may show and may spread over the entire body. Some cases may involve nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain. Undiagnosed, Rocky Mountain spotted fever can cause central nervous system disorders, respiratory, kidney, or liver failure and in some cases, death. Treatment includes antibiotics under a physician’* supervision.
