This might be caused by fragments of the tick still in your skin or might just have been a reaction to the tickâ€™s saliva. Itching is not uncommon. Bacteria and parasites can often co-occur with ticks. Your doctor might prescribe something like triamcinolone cream to help resolve it more quickly. Please be aware that i cannot diagnose the cause of your problem. Take care. ...Read more
