    Tick bite

    Hi all, I havenít been diagnosed or anything and this might sound silly but Iíve read so many things online which freaked me out. I just got bit by a tick and I read online that not all people who get Lyme disease get that bulls eye rash or even have any symptoms until way later. I understand that these are rare cases but for those of you who have such experiences, what would you suggest someone does if bitten by a tick? Thank you in advance

    Take the tick to a lab for testing. Not all ticks carry the bacterium for LD. If you no longer have the tick and you think you have been infected, get yourself tested. Time is of the essence in starting treatment early.
