In brief: Tick Bites

Symptoms of tick bites vary quite widely.
The ticks secrete a toxin which virtually numbs the site, making it very difficult to even tell if a tick bite has happened, or is happening. If a tick can be spotted, it should be removed by your doctor or other medical provider, gently, with a forceps, so that the head and mouth parts are extracted as well. See a doctor for more information.

In brief: Days to Weeks

First symptoms of a tick bite, such as fatigue, malaise, fever, nausea can start anywhere from days to weeks after the tick bite.
These symptoms may precede rash in cases of lyme disease.
