TOWSON, Md. —Mosquitoes have been in the spotlight lately with concerns over the Zika virus, but that's not the only bug to keep a lookout for.
Tick season has started and May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month.
Dr. Maneesha Ahluwalia, with the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, said 70 percent of people diagnosed with Lyme disease get a rash that's hard to miss.
"It is easy to diagnose Lyme when you have the classic rash, and it's not as easy to diagnose when the rash isn't present," Ahluwalia said.
Ahluwalia said early diagnosis is key.
