Tom in the future please do not burn the tick with a match. The only proper way to remove one is by pulling it straight out as close to the skin as possible, with tweezers only. Burning it with a match, putting Vaseline on it, pulling it out with your fingers increases your chance of infection. It is good that you are testing it, but the tests are not 100%. Yes it is ridiculous to wait until symptoms appear. A new infection requrires a minimum of 6 weeks of antibiotics. Where do you live?
