5 mo. Baby has a bug bite on top of head. It almost looks like a pimple with a small head but is not. Found a tick in bathroom same day. Lots of deer around. Not itchy or oozy. Possibilities?

Dear parent, I apologize in that I was traveling out of the country when this email was assigned to me. I am not a medical doctor, nor have the ability to provide a diagnosis to your question. As a parent myself, I understand your concerns and hopefully you have sought medical attention if the bug bite has not healed.

Ticks are common in the state of Ohio, and similar to mosquitos can carry certain diseases transmittable to humans. Again, I understand your concern for your child, but I cannot make a suggestion or offer possibilities. This would not be responsible on my part. I hope you understand.

Best Regards,
Dee
