So I was mushroom hunting today. Came home got naked, took a bath, got back into my dirty clothes. An hour later I had a bug crawling on my arm, it looked like a tick!
So I flicked the tick, it landed on my keyboard and crawled inside. So after literally debugging my keyboard for the last hour I have him trapped on a piece of tape. It looks like a male deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) and is the right size. There is a white tail deer back in the spot I was checking today, I saw it and it's tracks were on some of the same trails I was using.
Until I get my gf to look me over for bites I won't be sure it didn't feed on me. I've never had a tick before. How worried do I need to be about diseases from it? What symptoms do I need to look out for?
