Bella Hadid has publicly discussed her battle with Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is a tick-borne infection caused by Borrelia bacteria.

It is transmitted through tick bites, particularly from deer ticks.

Symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a distinct "bull's-eye" rash.

If untreated, it can lead to joint pain, heart problems, and neurological issues.

Early detection and antibiotic treatment are essential for recovery.

Prevention involves avoiding tick-infested areas and using insect repellents.

Diagnosis includes clinical evaluation and laboratory tests for antibodies.

Lyme disease can be challenging to diagnose accurately.
