Call your dr.  May want to get a round of antibiotics just to be safe due to ticks carrying lyme disease.

I agree with the above poster.....contact you dr. asap. One way to know if you are bitten or infected is if you develop a circular red patch, it will continue to get bigger and bigger. My son was a yr old and had been bitten on the tummy, his whole tummy was a huge red, puffy blotch. They call it "bullseye" Did he get the whole tick off, had it burrowed? They are nutorious for burrowing in the skin, and when trying to be removed the head will get stuck. All the best.
