How can i detect a deer tick bite?

Deer Tick Bites

Tick_bite
Sometimes you cannot! A guy came into my office a couple of years ago with a mole on his back which I spotted under magnification as a tick. He said he thought the lesion had been there for years but it really had not. We removed it with a forceps in the recommended way, and he had no more problems. We searched diligently for other bites, but none were found.

The deer tick bite site is itching and inflamed again 2 months after a 30-day antibiotic treatment. Is this cause for concern?

Get it checked

Itching_all_over
If this is truly the same site as the original, you should get it checked out. Best to revisit the same doctor involved with your first treatment for comparison sake.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Mule deer tick bite removed in two days, head intact, one day ago, no chills or fever, in NorCal. Should I see a doctor and consider antibiotics?

Doctor can evaluate

Open-uri20120428-26900-1c14tal
In California, the western black-legged tick can bite deer and humans, and can carry Lyme disease. If the tick is kept in a plastic container with a little piece of moist paper towel, it can be sent to the lab along with the doctor's lab form. The doctor may treat with antibiotics if the lab finds Lyme disease bacteria, if the bite site has a bull's-eye rash, or if there are other worries.

Symptoms of tick borne illness are varied depending on the tick vector and diseases carried.

What does tick bite look like?

See below

They vary in appearance, but often, the bite will often go unnoticed. If the tick was attached for less than 24-48 hours, the likelihood that you have contracted a disease is almost zero (I never say never). But watch for signs like a rash at the tick bite site, headaches, fevers, muscle aches, chills, fatigue, malaise, nausea and vomiting. If these occur, see you doctor.

What does a tick bite look like?

Insect bite

Tick_bite
Ticks are insects and leave bite marks. You may see head parts in the skin if not the whole body lodged in the skin. Initially, a tick bite could cause a small area of redness and swelling and bruising. The developing rash could be rounded and can extend outward in days to weeks and could indicate Lyme disease.

What does a tick bite look like on a human?

Tick bite

Tick_bite
If the tick is actually biting when you see it, it will be a small brown or black bug attached by his legs and mouthparts to your body. Black text are about 4 mm across or bigger and deer ticks or brown ticks about 3 mm across. After biting you may have a small growing red spot which itches somewhat for over subsequent days; you could actually develop a larger round spot. See a doctor immediately

What does the spot after a tick bite look like?

Often a red spot

Tick_bite
The primary infection of Lyme disease is a rapidly expanding ring. This should be promptly treated. A temporary red spot is a reaction to the tick rather than lyme.
