Rocky mountain spotted fever hub

Rocky mountain spotted fever is an infectious disease caused by Rickettsia rickettsii, a species of bacteria that is spread to humans by ixodid ticks. Symptoms of the disease include sudden onset of fever, headache, and muscle pain, followed by development of rash. Symptoms usually appear within two weeks of the bite of an infected tick. People can protect themselves by avoiding tick bites and by keeping pets tick-free. Prompt removal of attached ticks, using tweezers, may prevent disease transmission.
