The Inherent Danger of Having Ticks Around
While most ticks live outdoors throughout grass, trees, shrubs and leaves, most are attracted to humans and our pets. Though the larger percentage of tick bites are harmless and don’t present any symptoms, some are dangerous and even deadly. If a tick does end up biting you, you need to watch for specific symptoms that could become a much larger problem if left untreated.
Checking & Removing Ticks from Your Pets
Ticks appear anywhere from reddish brown in color to bluish-green if engorged and well fed with a host’s blood. They are primarily attracted to warm, moist areas of the body such as your hair, armpits or groin and won’t stop sucking for blood until they’ve become completely full.
What to do if You’re Bitten
Most tick bites are harmless. However you need to put your best feet forward when monitoring a tick bite. If the tick that bit you was not a disease carrier and you are not naturally allergic, then you have nothing to worry about. It’s those that are allergic that will notice symptoms with the most severe being a tick-borne illness from one that was carrying disease.
Appearance and Symptoms of a Tick Bite
- Muscle aches and pains
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Red Spot
These could all be symptoms of an allergic reaction your body is generating due to the tick bite or signs of a much larger problem. In any case, we would suggest getting checked out by a medical professional just to make sure you’re in the clear.
