Re: I found a tick on my 10 month old!

Last summer when my dd was about 10 months old, I found one on her head. It was right behind her ear and it left a little tiny red spot for a while, but it was nothing to worry about. Just watch for anything weird (like I'm sure you're already doing )

Re: I found a tick on my 10 month old!

My ds had one this summer. It was a bigger one, which, I guess, is suppossed to be better than small ones. The small ones are the ones that carry the lyme disease. My ds was fine though. The whole thing came out, so that was good. I guess though, that you can have the ticks tested at the hospital for something. We didn't do that, but had family that did. Ticks are so gross. I'm glad my mom was there to deal with it. Ugg! Hope your little one is ok and she will will probably be fine
