Tick bites can be very serious. I had one two years ago which anaplasmosis. I came very close to death. Get to a doctor and have a blood test. From now on use permethrin on your clothes. Some tick bites can kill you!

Went to doc this morning. Rash was from my belt to almost my armpit by then. Got some meds and a blood test, rash has subsided quite a bit by now.
All my clothes and truck cab have been sprayed with permethrin but they still get to me.

Hey Eric, just spent a week in hospital a couple weeks ago. High fever, liver shutting down and liver enzymes climbing. Seemed like they were checking blood very frequently when I was on the hospital bed. Had about 6 bags going on the IV pole, tubes in both arms. Had to take me off of my chemo for a week because my liver couldnít handle both the tick crap and the chemo. Was a very tough week. Took me off my feet completely. Got dehydrated because didnít feel like eating or drinking just wanted to sleep and my fever to go away.
Tick born illness is what it ended up being. No rash. No evidence of bite. I responded well only to the specific antibiotic they treated me for as a tick born illness.
Liver came back back in working order with no apparent damage. Still get a little tired in early evenings but am getting better every day. Back on the chemo and my sort of normal routine.
Use that bug spray guys! Ticks are evil little (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) that carry a nasty payload.
Jim

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Didn't they start a lyme vaccine a few years ago and quit because it wasn't a money maker? I think they are working on vaccine trials now, so maybe in the near future there will be a prevention for lyme but there are so many other tick diseases you still will have to work at prevention.

I avoid doctors and clinics as much as anyone I know but that looks bad and I would get it checked out!

I live in the epicenter of lyme tick land, they're bad, bites itch for weeks on me, my lower legs are full of tick bite scars, but the ones that scare me the most are those lone star ticks, which are getting more numerous here. The diseases you get from them, and it gets transmitted almost immediately are no joke...

Iím an Ex-Beagler. AKC SPO Beagle Field Trial Judge and campaigned two AKC Field Champions 2002-06. I could write a book on ticks. My last champion came down with Lymes lacking one win from finishing. I tripled the doxycycline dose after no luck from the Vet. He tested neg. when I sold him. I also experienced Lymes in 2009 when several Beaglers were hospitalized and heard of a death in Indiana.


Iíd rather be lucky than good any day
