I’m British and lived in the US for a while. There the knowledge of Lyme Disease amongst the general population and medical profession is very high. I was bitten, then I got the rash which I recognised immediately. I went straight to the clinic (very similar to an NHS doctor’s office), was instantly diagnosed, had the special blood tests done and was prescribed a course of antibiotics. Job done. Well done for your efforts to raise awareness here, it’s essential.
