from the look of it on goole, ticks are more like little dark marks than flesh colored ones, but i could be wrong. sorry, i dont have a lot of tick experience

hmmm.. doesn't look like anything suspicious to me, idk, although it's a good idea to watch for signs of infection like if it gets bigger, redder or itching develops.

lol you're fine



when a tick bites you usually it won't leave a bump and ticks do not bite and leave they attach themselves so if you are bitten the tick will not let go until it is full of blood and this can take days.



you can remove a tick with tweezers by grabbing it at the head (the area attached to your skin) or you can take a tweezer or needle and heat it with a lighter and put it to the ticks butt until it unscrews it's self and you can pick it off



i like to cut their heads off personally if i find any on my groom dogs no chance of living then. if you just pop them they can heal. if you through them away or outside they can get right back on you. if you can't kill it then flush it down the potty please.
