Risk of Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Illnesses Remains High

October 06, 2017 - 00:00

NEW YORK, NY --Many people mistakenly believe that tick season ends at Labor Day, but in fact the danger of tick bites extends well into the fall and even the winter if the weather stays warm. Last winter, for the first time since I began treating Lyme disease in the 1980s, I saw new cases of Lyme all winter, even in January and February. We won’t get the final numbers until later in the fall, but this year is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent memory for Lyme disease and other tick-borne infectious illnesses.
