Customer Question
My husband had, what...

My husband had, what we think was a tick taken from his lag four days ago. The site is now very red and he has a blue/grenn ring around it.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

He has sore limbs. also the larger purple/green ring has only developed today. When I took the tick out, there was only part of it. I was just wanting to know if it is important that he sees his Dr today or waits until tomorrow?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. He is quite healthy otherwise. He said the pains in his limds was from old age but he went back up to bed this morning to lie down.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
