it depends on the tick. call your dr and explain what it looked like. usually the ones with spots are ones to worry about. but just give em a call and see what they recommend. and yes they are gross, i hate em.
I'd consult your doctor. I wouldn't mess around with the question of breast feeding and lyme disease. Did you save the tic?
My dd had a tic on her eye lid that showed up 2 days after her class took a field trip to the woods. She had a hat on that day, but apparently that didn't help. I took her to the ER where they removed the tic and gave her an antibiotic 'just in case'.
I'd see or talk to a doctor. Don't mess around with that.
