What are the possible consequences of an infection?

An infection initially begins harmlessly with reddening at the site of the injection. In the second stage, serious illnesses can occur with possible effects on the joints, nervous system, skin or even the heart.
Insufficient treatment can lead to permanent disabilities!

TBE (Tick-borne encephalitis) is found throughout Switzerland except for Geneva and Ticino. The first phase of the disease appears 14 days after the bite of an infected tick. Symptoms are flu-like and in 5 – 15 % of those infected it leads to an attack on the nervous system after a symptom-free period!
In 1 % of neurological cases, it can even lead to death.
