Crazy Carolina Child
Yes!!! You can get very very sick and die

Edwina W
it can cause death


BringThe Pain
Havent you heard of Tick Fever

um yeah?????

Yes, they can carry diseases...

Yes, they can be carriers of Lyme Disease. If you've been bitten, it might be worth going to a doctor.



Yes, Deer ticks can cause lyme disease which is quite painful.

susan n
Yes. Regular ticks may carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. I don't think it is very common though.
Deer ticks carry Lyme Disease. Deer ticks are tiny, the size of the head of a pin and people can have them and not even notice.
Lyme Disease is such a huge topic I can't get into it here but it can be really, really, bad. A relative was ill with it for a few years. Couldn't work or take care of herself. Had to move in with her mother. Lost her car and her apartment. Felt too weak and ill to do much more than walk into another room - and fall asleep again.
But I think you are probably talking about regular wood ticks. Unless Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is in your area the main thing about these ticks is they are disgusting!
If you are in the woods or fields go over your whole body afterward especially your hair. Check under your clothes too. if you find any pull it off gently so its head doesn't stay imbedded in your skin. Swab with rubbing alcohol.



Ticks can hurt someone easily by biting them. Ticks can give someone lime desease. Ticks also can pass germs and bacteria when on you.

Smiles =D
Yes. You can get lyme disease

Allie B
yes they can

carolina girl
they carry diseases... but i've had a few and i'm fine
take the tick and put it in a plastic bag and take it to the doctor. they can test it.

Akil R
No they give you immortality...

They can carry infection and the head can become lodged in the skin causing a skin infection.

depends on what kind of tick. ticks can spread disease to humans if you get bite. just make sure you apply something to prevent it from happening.

Yes they can carry many disease, one of which is lyme disease.

ivan m
yes, they are really bad to start a relationship with

They can cause lyme disease, but that is only if the tick is infected with this. The biggest thing that you have to remember with something like this, is if you remove a tick from the skin, you must make sure that you grasp the head with tweezers as you slowly pull it out, or you're going ot cause the head to stay in, and this will cause an infection if you leave it in.

Ticks are disgusting little parasites that carry many diseases...One that comes to mind readily, would be LYME disease. Others are just as scarey, like tick borne Paralysis...Cat Scratch fever...Encephalitis. When I was a child I used to get them all the time at my grandparents ranch. My father would remove them by pouring lighter fluid over the entry area (Usually rear of the neck on humans) and the fluid burned the tick, and they would let go and back out....Then he would smash them.

I don't know if this was a good idea or a bad one...It always worked...but Im not a doctor. Stay as far away as you can from them nasty little saplings...The rate of infection is actually relatively high compared to many other parasitic leeches.

Yes, ticks can spread Lymes disease.

Only a certain kind of tick can hurt you, that is a deer tick which is very tiny and makes a big white ring around where it is.
Common wood ticks are fairly harmless but always pull them off.

Yes. Ticks carry Lyme Disease also, they create itch red bumps much like a pimple.

Lyme disease is an infection caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. This bacterium is usually found in animals like mice and deer. It can be carried to people from these animals by Ixodes ticks (known as black-legged or deer ticks). These ticks pick up Borrelia burgdorferi when they bite infected animals and then infect humans by biting them and passing the bacteria into the person's bloodstream.

Sound gross? Maybe. But you can be sure that you won't witness this process: It's very hard to see the ticks themselves. Immature ticks, or nymphs, are about the size of a poppy seed. Adult ticks are about the size of a sesame seed.

Because the ticks are hard to find, it helps to be aware of the symptoms of Lyme disease. It's easy to overlook a tick bite. Many people who get Lyme disease don't remember being bitten. The good news is that most tick bites don't result in Lyme disease.

Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. There may be a few more diseases and viruses that can be transmitted.

If it happens to be carrying the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease you can get very ill. Symptoms are similar to Rheumatoid Arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis. Difficult for doctors to diagnose too. Usually, but not always, you will find a rash with a clear area in the center if bitten by a tick.
