I have a tick bite - now what?
I just got home from a weekend of camping, and found a dead tick attached to the top of my inner leg! I’m pretty sure it was in there about 24 hours, because I remember itching in that area yesterday around this time. I quickly forgot about it…no illness or rash occurred following the itching (yet).
I removed the entire tick…now what? Does a tick bite guarantee severe symptoms or illness? Can I just assume I’m okay if I feel okay?
