Accompanied DS on a field trip through the woods; despite showering and immediately checking for tics upon returning home, did not find any (one) until 36 hours later. Got it out in one piece, doc said to wash the site and disinfect it and to watch it for several days. The spot is red, and a bit sore.
Based on internet pics, it does look like a deer tick and not a wood tick. It was not engorged with blood/don't think it fed on me for very long. May go to doc and have it checked it for my own piece of mind but would welcome thoughts on anyone who has experience with this.
