I got out of the shower and there was a dark speck of something on my forehead. Thought it was a piece of dirt.
I picked it off and squished it between my fingernails...and it made a kind of pop sound...so I knew it wasn't a piece of dirt.
I looked at it with a magnifying glass...and even though it's squished...it has the shape of a tick...
I don't see evidence of a bite...but there could be one under my hair...
What to do?
I'm off abx this week....and next week I'm back on ...but it's just M/W/F mino, Rifabutin, Ceftin plus Flagyl on Thursday and Friday.
I'm banking on it being one without lyme (if it indeed is a tick).....telling myself that even IF it did bite me.....chances are it doesn't have lyme.....right?
Or... am I wrong?
I guess I should call the J clinic and see what they tell patients to do.....
