Are tick bites dangerous to humans?

It depends...

Circular_rash_at_site_of_tick_bite
...on the tick. Deer ticks, for example, are often the carriers of the bacteria associated with Lyme Disease, a chronic and potentially debilitating condition associated with heart, joint and other difficulties. Wood ticks can carry the bacteria that cause Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Other tick bites are totally harmless and can cause only local irritation. Ultimately it depends on the tick.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

whats the best thing for tick bites?

Removal

Dermatitis
Careful removal of the tick, followed, if necessary, by a steroid cream or ointment to reduce the inflammation and itching. Would not use antibiotics unless you get secondary infection, or develop signs and symptoms of a tick-borne infection (fever, rash, malaise, etc.). If that occurs see a doctor ASAP. Would not recommend prophylactic antibiotics.

What should you do if a tick bites your penis?

Watch

Tick_bite
Remove the tick if required by the right means. Report any fever or systemic illness to your physician with a note that you had a tick bite. Watch for reddening at the site especially if rings form -- this would be Lyme disease. Don't let this mishap keep you from enjoying the outdoors but consider wearing some repellant. Good luck.
