Ticks and what to watch for when they bite

Spending time outdoors in the summer means there’s a risk for ticks.

Jameel T. Clark, M.D., with Norton Children’s Medical Associates – 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.

Dr. Clark spoke with WHAS11 about tick bites and what to watch for in our area.
