Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
You can contact your public health department.
They may take the ticks for testing.
However, it may not always help in deciding treatment
I hope this information will be helpful.

Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

What should be my next step?

Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago
I would advise to take her to her pediatrician along with the ticks.
He can decide whether any testing would be required.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

My 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today.
my 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today. We've given her Tylenol and it's gone down to 100.5 (now back up to 101.2 before bed). What worries me is that this afternoon and this evening she has started having involuntary tics - squeeze her eyes shut for a second or two. This is not blinking, it is very clearly a facial spasm or tic. She has also had a few jerky movements (somewhat like startle reflex when she was a newborn). I'm really afraid that these are febrile seizures … read more
