I got a tick bite on my penis and im to scared to tell anyone but when i took it off it started to turn red and itch and swell just want to know if im ok theres no bulls eye and i don't have the tick
I : I agree with the other doctor who wrote to you. It's important to talk with someone about this, because ticks are known to carry a number of infections, such as lyme disease, babesia, and other bacterias. Generally they are slow growing infections and the symptoms can sneak up on you, or come and go over time. It would be a good idea to discuss this with your parents or a doctor. They might decide to give you a few weeks of antibiotic treatment to prevent a chronic infection. Take care dr. Tedde rinker los altos, ca. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My husband had a tick on hos penis yesterday and he used cortisone cream. This morning he is swollen and uncomfortable. What can he do for relief?
Bullseye rash?: It is common for the area immediately around the bite to be red, but if there is a clear area around that surrounded by a red ring that is a sure sign of Lyme. A single dose of doxycycline after 10 days would be worthless. ILADS (the association of Lyme specialists) recommends 200 mg of doxycycline 2x/day for 30 days. A tick bite can also cause Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia & other infections. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Discovered a rash 24-48 hours after a tick bite (size 10-15 cm). Doctor prescribed Penicillin for 10 days. No other symptoms. Is the prognosis good?
Likely: It all depends on how long the Tick was attached and if the rash was typical for erythema marginatum. Typically if there is strong suspicion for tick disease the antibiotic used is Doxycycline, unless there is an allergy. There is an excellent web site at the CDC that reviews management. Blood work is always available to look for Lyme disease. ...Read more
Tick bite- turned black and itchy (5 days old). I pulled the tick out all the way, and there are no other symptoms or discoloration. Cause 4 concern?
I have a tick bite that is 5 days old. It's mildly tender, mildly itchy and looks like a large mosquito bite. I'm not in a Lyme disease region.
Tick borne illnesses: include many things besides just Lyme. However, most often, a local reaction to a tick bite is simply inflammation; an expanding, red area of tenderness can be cellulitis (a skin infection, often caused by staph bacteria).
