With the lingering sunshine and the happy feelings that a hot summer brings, more people have enjoyed the outdoors.
While Somerset bakes under the sun, the potential of people suffering from Lyme disease has risen though fields and meadows.
BBC Countryfile was on Exmoor, highlighting the problem on Sunday night (July 29). He focused on the dangers of tick biting.
Symptoms of Lyme Disease
] You can usually tell if you have Lyme disease because you may have a circular skin rash around a tick bite.
It may take a while for you to show rash for up to three months after the tick has bitten you. However, most rashes occur within the first four weeks and can last for several weeks.
