Hi Van-gogh, I responded to your post on the other board. I am glad you posted here
How did you remove the tick? Improper removal increases the risk of infection. There is an excellent Lyme doctor in Huntersville, NC. His name is Dr. Joseph Jemsek. I highly recommend that you make an appointment to see him. If the tick was infected, the earlier you get the proper treatment the better.
Keep us posted on how you are doing okay?
