That;s what my first bite looked like for 2 years. I used to burn it in the shower with scorching hot water, or with a hair dryer at close range. Eventually it went away.

Who needs doctors? toothy

My understanding is that the tick needs to bite you for 24 hours in order for it to transfer the Lyme disease. The unfortunate part is that once you have it you have it forever it just lies dormant in your system after the symptoms have been addressed. Some folks believe it was developed by our government for another purpose and somehow got away from them. I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but some of the stuff does sound compelling. Good luck!

Actually this one very likely was an experiment gone wrong, the Gov. always did & still does do all sorts of germ & insect testing & Plum Island isn't far from Lyme, Conn., just a short birds flight away & none of these scientific geniuses ever gave it a thought. Who knows maybe the killer bees will wipe out the deer ticks. :cry: :mad:

Guys,

For what its worth, if you get one dont pull it out. Get a gob of Vaseline ,cover him up totally , put a bandaid over it and within 15 mins hell back out trying to catch his breath. So Ive been told by my buddy in "tick" county NC.

I have to say that now 2 days later this thing still itches so bad i seriously want to take a sharp knife and cut the entire area out :mad: I think the wound from cutting out a chunk of meat their would heal faster then this frigging thing and maybe the itching would stop :annoyed: (poison ivy is lookin' pretty darn swell to me at this point :lol: )

Ive tried evrything i can afford atm and it seems like solarcaine at least gives a few minutes of relief to the itch.
next time the customer will be walking the land themselves while i stay out on the road shouting "how's it look"! :lol:
