HappyGrace Posted June 11, 2012 Share Posted June 11, 2012 (edited) I flicked a bug off dd's arm and it bled, almost like a black fly bite. But it didn't have wings. I didn't look closely to see if it was a tick but I'm so worried that it was one that was embedding itself! Would a tick bite bleed like that if it was embedding when I flicked it off? If there's any chance, I want to get her on an antibx immediately. Please help-we've already been through horror stories with Lyme here in the past few yrs. I don't know why I flicked it like that-I just panicked and wanted it off. I could see it wasn't embedded (no head in there, I don't think??) but was kind of attached like it was doing something to her, biting or whatever. We were outside at the time so it couldn't have been on her a long time, and it wasn't engorged. AGH-I wish I had looked at it more closely! My first impression on looking at it was that it didn't look like a tick, but I'm no expert (our Lyme before came when we didn't know we were bitten.)
