I found this on my leg last night freaked me out does anyone know what kind of tick it is and can you get lime disease from it?
Wow that creepy
Ps: not all ticks do infect u with some kind of illness - so just stay calm an d observe the spot, where it bit you
it is an Ixodes (most likely I. ricinus), I´d go to the doctor to take it out - and Lime disease is caused by the bacteria (B. burgdorferii) u can be treated with antibiotics, if a rash appears( in 2-3 weeks) and you get symptoms and feverU know - Erythema migrans - here a picture: http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?titl...
