    when I go out in May squirrel hunting, i generally don't wear no shoes
    and go in pocket shorts. I go around like that all summer.
    I rub my feet and legs down every morning with gel aclohol and it keeps
    the poison oak from affecting me.
    The ticks don't like it much either.
    You got to be careful about snakes though.

    Do not do that the peroxide may make them regurgitate. Work them out carefully and then apply peroxide.

    Same with me--been bitten by ticks but I always check for them when coming outta the woods. I remove them before they have a chance to feed.

    I never have, at least that I know of. I have wondered when I get to feeling bad after a tick bite. I Don't go out much anymore in the spring or summer. Just not worth it.

    I am on a list at the CDC and cannot give blood since my body contains the antivirus, or so I have been told. I know that I have unexplained joint pains that my docs have been chasing the past 10 yrs. many blood tests, many fluid off the joint tests and they still cannot figure out why for no reason my Knee or ankle or elbow will swell up and hurt like it is broken. Yup they tested me for lymes disease and also negative.

    I truly believe that the RMSF has caused me these unexplained arthritis symptoms over the years.

    My brother also suffered and could not eat holved animal meat from a tick bite. use permethrin and be safe.
    is that stuff safe around pets?

    My brother in law lives in Lyme CT., the birthplace of the disease's namesake and one of the first patients.

    I was up their woods walking in the fall. Showering afterward and upon exiting seeing a dark tiny spot next to the family jewels! Plucked it out according to recommendations and went in to paranoid mode on the internet. Odds were for me and a prophylaxis antibiotic was recommended that prevents infection 85%.

    Wife's cousin worked in a doctors office down the street and the doc wrote me a script and no problems.

    this is the first week i'm beginning to feel half way normal after three months of suffering a tick bite ailment called babesiosis.
    I must have gotten bit in the spring by a larval deer tick. The doctor that treated me said larval deer ticks is where this disease comes from. In mid july i had fevers sweats and chills every day, i had so little energy i would fall asleep almost standing up and my mind was playing tricks on me I was haulucinating I guess is why the electric outlets were argueing with one another while I was in ER. What put me in the hospital was passing out and my arms and legs were flopping around according to my daughter who witnessed it. I pull crawling ticks off of me quite a bit but did not even know that a poppy seed sized one had bit me. No more shorts out in the fields or woods for me. According to CDC there was only one reported case of this in Tennessee last year. Fortunately I was at a hospital that wanted to know what was going on with me after the tested me and found out I don't do drugs. about thirty tubes of blood later a sharp eyed lab teck thought he saw something and they had to send blood to Salt Lake for test. 1 percent of my blood was parasites. The symptoms and treatment are the same as Malaria.
    So protect yourself out there I don't wish what I been through on anyone

    I was diagnosed with Anaplasmosis since my post. went on Doxcy. recently went to a specialist (not covered by insurance) shipped blood out to good lab checking erlichia, babesia, bartonela and lyme. lots of the labs test have poor accuracy, the gold standard is in Palo Alto,CA (expensive)
