ticks and lyme disease #414218

Asked July 14, 2017, 2:35 PM EDT

I've been bitten by a tick and have captured the evil critter. Am wondering if you can refer me to a place to take it to identify if it is carrying lyme or other diseases. Thank you.

Expert Response

Take the tick in to your doctor.  It may have to be tested to determine your exposure to any diseases that are blood borne.  The type of tick is important for your doctor to know.
Thanks, G.
