Many Pennsylvania residents may know that ticks carry Lyme disease. In many cases, those who find that they've been bitten by a tick and contracted a disease can simply visit their doctor for treatment. What one Boston man found, however, was that the U.S. may not be equipped to deal with uncommon strains of the disease.
The man was reportedly in Spain for a music conference when he discovered that a tick had bitten his ankle. Two days later, he discovered a rash that looked like a bull's-eye at the location where he had been bitten. He then experienced classic symptoms of the tick-borne disease including a fever and headaches.
