Tick bites are known to cause all sorts of health issues - but for Oklahoma mom Jo Rogers, the consequences were more horrifying than anybody could possibly have imagined.

Lyme disease, caused by the virulent borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, is the most famous tick-borne disease; and one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the United States. But it's very far from the only disease carried in the saliva of blood-feeding ticks. A host of other diseases can be transmitted by the bite of a tick - including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, caused by the bacteria Rickettsia rickettsii.

However, any longer than that and the bacteria can cause major health issues, including fever, blood clots and death.

A horrifying example of just how dangerous Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be hit the headlines this week in Oklahoma.

Doctors believe 40-year-old mom Jo Rogers had been bitten by a tick four days earlier, during a visit to Grand Lake, but not been aware of it at the time. Unknown to her, she'd been infected with the Rickettsia rickettsii bacteria - and once back home, was hit...
