This is Dr. Daviddo you have any rash or fever?if you are getting more itchy skin and rash and fever, you should see a doctor and get tested for tick borne illnesses like lyme disease.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No I did not have any other symptoms. I am not sure if its a rash. Its small itchy red spots but randomly over my body. Like 3 on my stomach, 2 on my neck few on my legs. But they seem to be popping up more and there is no other ticks besides the 2 I removed.
