Can get a tick in my nose

Hi, It's Dr. C. I can help you today.

Yes it's possible to get a tick in the nose but very unusual. I see the age is listed as 10, so being lower to the ground, a shorter person would be closer to shrubs and bushes to allow a tick to attach to the head and face area.

The best thing to do if you have this concern is to see a doctor or other health provider today if possible. The nose needs to be examined to check for a tick and then be removed.

I hope this was helpful.
