On Wednesday the White House revealed that last year doctors treated President Bush for Lyme’s disease. Lyme’s disease is a tick-borne bacterial infection that causes a target shaped rash and a fever, and if left untreated can also cause fatigue, muscle pains, short term memory loss and other neurological disorders. After the President noticed a rash, the location of which was not disclosed, he notified his physician and subsequently received antibiotics for the infection.
So, you know, he’s absolutely fine.
It is not known if the President has any other rashes or insect-borne illnesses, but White House insiders allege that former President Bill Clinton did, in fact, receive a constant supply of creams and antibiotics for an unknown skin condition somewhere on his nether-regions.
