Tick Bite

Treatment Recommendations

Everyone Agrees

The sooner treatment begins after a tick bite the better. Ticks are infected with various pathogens that can spread through the body quickly and cause a variety of mild to life-threatening symptoms. Waiting to see if the infections spread, or if you get a rash, or if you get sick BEFORE treating is NOT supported by the science and does NOT make sense. Forget the old "wait and see" approach! Get It Right- Treat The Bite!

The clinical management of known tick bites,

erythema migrans rashes and persistent disease

Authors- Cameron, DJ, et. al. 2014

Important- Less than 30% of adults get a rash after a tick bite and many do not notice any early symptoms. Less than 10% of children get a rash.

A tick does NOT have to be attached for 24, 48 or 72 hours to transmit Lyme and other diseases as some older literature states. Ticks can transmit one or more diseases within minutes of a bite!

Please Remember...
