Tick toxicoses refers to any disease caused by a poison introduced into the body by a tick. The toxin is carried from the tick’s saliva into the victim’s blood stream when the tick is biting the host. Most forms of tick toxicoses cause flu-like symptoms and inflammation. Severe kinds of tick toxicoses can produce symptoms including paralysis, swelling of the brain, and cognitive damage. People over the age of 50, children, and pets are the most likely to suffer damage from a toxic tick bite. There is no cure for tick toxicoses, so people are encouraged to perform daily self-examinations for ticks and wear insect repellant while outside.
