    Just watch it. If you see it do any of this, go see your doctor.

    The symptoms of tick infections depend on what bacteria the tick was carrying. The most commonly recognized symptom is usually a rash, which can look like:

    * the classic "bull's-eye" rash, erythema migrans, that occurs with Lyme disease
    * a similar red, expanding rash with central clearing following the bite of the lone star tick in the southeast or southcentral United States, causing Southern tick-associated rash illness (STARI).
    * the more subtle rash with small, flat, pink, non-itchy spots (macules) on the wrists, forearms, and ankles
