My sister just removed a tick from 5 year old. How is this usually handled? Is it necessary to have child see doctor to be treated for possiblity of lymes disease? Or do you watch the site and see if anything developes? My cousin lives in tick infested area and she says the doctors do not want to be called about every tick she sees. Where she lives they mark it on calendar and if bullseye or other symptoms develope they are to call. This approach makes me nervous considering the possibility of so many complications.
