Tick Bite Symptoms

Video: Tick & Mosquito Bites, Risks & Symptoms

More often than not, humans are not aware of having been bitten by ticks. Bites are not initially painful. Tick bites do not always result in disease transmission. If transmission occurs, symptoms are not always obvious until ticks detach from their hosts. Furthermore, victims of tick bites may not test positive for tick-borne diseases until long after exposure. If a tick has bitten you, remove the tick carefully. Put the tick in a jar for identification later. If you cannot remove the tick, experts suggest that you call your doctor.

It is imperative to seek medical attention if any such symptoms appear. Tick-borne diseases can be serious if not treated.
