If it was attached long enough to transmit disease than send it out for testing
You might be lucky like me and find that your tick is negative for Lyme Disease, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis and B. Miyamotoi. If you trust the test than you might feel confident to go about your day without antibiotics.
and see a doctor to discuss these recommendations for treatment from the Center for Disease Control: https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/treatment/index.html
Don’t let ticks keep you from enjoying the great outdoors. Be vigilant & check frequently.
