While ticks are known to carry diseases, that doesn’t mean every bite will lead to illness
Spending time outdoors in the summer means there’s a risk for ticks.
Jameel T. Clark, M.D., with Norton Children’s Medical Group – Dixie notes that you may not notice a tick bite right away. But that doesn’t mean you should start worrying once you notice a bite. While ticks sometimes spread diseases, merely getting a tick bite doesn’t mean you’ll get sick.
