Do we have any tick and Lyme disease experts on here?
I found a tick 10 days ago whilst camping, I've no idea how long it had been there. Typically I'd left my tick remover at home but managed to remove it with my fingernails. Applied some savlon and the bite mark faded nicely. Just looked like a midge bite really.
Then a week later it formed a little puss filled pustule. This has now gone and a round bruise has been growing. Coincidentally I've also now got a stiff neck and shoulders and the leg with the bite is aching especially my knee. I'm probably just being a hypochondriac but am aware of Lyme disease and understandably concerned.
I hate bothering the doc if I don't have to. Anyone with knowledge of tick bites here?
