How should one go about treating a tick bite?
Tick bites are not usually much of a problem. Sometimes you can get a infection at the site of the bite, so if you see redness and swelling at the site of a bite contact your doctor. Rarely, ticks can transmit illnesses such as lyme, ehrlichia, rocky mountain spotted fever and others.
These infections make you quite sick and require medication when you have sypmtoms.
