Re: Just removed tick - should I begin treatment?
After removing the tick you could have put it in a zip lock baggie, with a moist cotton ball. And taken it to the county. They should of been able to test it. And depending on your doctor, they may or may not give you antibiotics this early.
IF you get any rashes take pictures of them. Then seek out a LLMD, (Lyme Literate Medical doctor).
I know it is scary.
