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.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

I would advise to take her to her pediatrician along with the ticks.
He can decide whether any testing would be required.

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.
