Lyme disease begins as an infection caused by black-legged ticks. Usually living in wooded areas such as forests, these ticks can attach themselves to the skin of humans and bite them, infecting them a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi (CDC 2008). Several days or weeks after such a bite, a person usually begins to develop ringed rashes around the bitten area. These rashes can be painful and can cause swelling, however this is not always the case.
