    Although anyone can get Lyme disease, children spend a lot of time outdoors and are at particular risk.

    Reasons to suspect that your child may have Lyme disease include:

    • Your family lives in or has visited a region where Lyme disease is commonly found

    • You know or suspect that your child has been exposed to ticks

    • Your child is experiencing symptoms such as rash, fever, chills, fatigue, joint or muscle pain, or facial paralysis

    Children sometimes experience joint pain as their first, and possibly only, symptom of Lyme disease. If you suspect that your child may have Lyme disease, seek care promptly.
