Diagnosed with Babesia - Tick Co-Infection

    I never really looked thoroughly into the other infections that ticks carry and transmit, other than the Lyme bacteria, until I got diagnosed with one...Babesia, which is actually a protozoan parasite.
 
     Here is some information on it.


   
     It is a good idea to get tested for co-infections if you think you have Lyme Disease. The same tick can transmit more than one disease.
The location of the infected tick I presume was Greene County, NY, where we have a part time place.
