Spotted fever rickettsiosis is a term for a group of diseases caused by spotted fever group rickettsia, a type of bacteria. These are spread to humans by either mites or ticks  specifically, the Gulf Coast tick and Pacific Coast tick. Since 2010, there have been about 3,000 cases each year with a fatality rate less than 1%. These mostly occur during the summer months in the South and southeastern states. The first sign of a spotted fever is an eschar, or a dark brown scab on the tick bite, which can take up to a week to appear. Once the eschar forms, patients may experience flu-like symptoms. All spotted fevers are treated with doxycycline. These infections can range from mild to life-threatening if left untreated. The most serious of this group of tick-borne diseases is the Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF), which causes fever, headache, and rash. In severe cases, RMSF can result in permanent damage to blood vessels in the limbs, hearing loss, paralysis, or mental disabilities. . .

One parent, Karla Merly, still sobs when she describes the hurricane destroying almost everything her family owned their house and virtually everything in it.

A nurse, Merly was working a shift at a local medical facility and had sent her daughter and son to her parents house to wait out the storm. Now, they are all living there while they figure out what to do next. Merly had no paperwork to prove that she owned her house, which once belonged to her grandfather, so she cant get federal help to rebuild it, she said.

Her daughter, Nashaly Colon, 16, said she saw all of her belongings scattered across her patio after the hurricane hit, and she still talks about the storm every day.

All my moms effort was lost, Colon said.

The mother and daughter said they think they could benefit from mental health assistance.
