Thread: tick bite

    tick bite

    My care taker pulled a tick off of her shoulder 2 weeks ago. The place where she pulled it off at has a sore there that wont heal & keeps getting bigger. It also has a red ring around it. What can be wrong with her?

    Sounds like erythema migrans characteristic of Lyme disease, spread by a certain kind of tick. Only your doctor can tell you, so pay a visit soon so he can diagnose you and give you antibiotics if needed.
    I mean, her.

    The head may have been left behind if not properly removed, which could cause infection including cellulitis. Lyme should also be considered. She needs to see a physician either way, and may need to have testing for Lyme disease.
