Last April, I experienced a tick bite on my right ankle. I noticed it after a shower - a black spot. After speaking with a few people, I pryed it out with a pair of tweasers. It was still alive. I applied an antiseptic and thought my problems were over. Since last April, the site shows a 3/8" brown spot with a sort of "tiny white head", has been itchy, and periodically painful (Right ankle and foot hurt). Is it possible that I missed some of the tick? I've had this problem long enough. What do you recommend?
