MS & Being around other Diseases

I have MS. My best friend her boyfriend were diagnosed with Lyme Disease Is Lyme Disease contagious?
hackwriter responded:
Lyme disease is not contagious. You can't get it from an infected human. We get Lyme disease from infected ticks only.

In other words, if your BFF's BF has a dog and the dog had a case of infected ticks, and one of those ticks jumped onto your skin and started feeding on your blood--THEN you might get infected with Lyme disease. But you won't get infected by the boyfriend.

So you can relax and hang with them without any fear of Lyme.
