Tick Borne Encephalitis

TBE is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected ticks, which are small arthropods that feed on the blood of animals and humans.

TBE is found in certain parts of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, and it is endemic in certain areas of these regions.

More About
Tick Borne Encephalitis

Symptoms of TBE typically appear 3-14 days after the tick bite, and may include fever, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. Some people may also experience nausea, vomiting, and a rash. In severe cases, TBE can cause inflammation of the brain (encephalitis) and meningitis, which can lead to serious complications such as seizures, paralysis, and even death.

There is no specific treatment for TBE, so treatment is supportive and aims to manage symptoms. This may include medications to control fever and pain, as well as fluids to prevent dehydration. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary.

To prevent TBE, it is important to take precautions when traveling to areas where the disease is endemic. This may include wearing long sleeves and trousers to reduce the risk of tick bites, using insect repellent, and avoiding walking through tall grass or wooded areas. Vaccination is  available to prevent TBE.

If you think you have been bitten by a tick and are experiencing symptoms of TBE, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent serious complications and improve the chances of a full recovery.
