Woke up with severe pain in my elbow area, I had a deer tick, please advise?
Woke up this morning with severe pain in my elbow area, when I looked, I had a deer tick (yes I am quite sure it was a deer tick) so I removed it but the area is red, swollen, and a burning pain which has persisted now for 3 hours +. I washed the area well, applied triple antibiotic ointment but just wondering if I need to do anything further. The tick was NOT engorged and had probably only been on me for no more than 8 hours as it was not there when I went to bed the previous night.
General Information: Pretty healthy otherwise, no medical issues.
