Well done for spotting it, I have friends who got ticked in Belgium. Couple of years ago and there were delays in treatment..... they were well ticked off !!! ☹️☹️

What a pain, Tracy! Good job you kept an eye on it; not a very nice souvenir of the Cotswolds

So sorry it’s not better Tracy, but thanks to you speaking out and, as a result wearing long trousers on the second day in the Cotswolds I remain tick free. Hope the antib’s keep you in good health.

The little buggers will get into trousers tucked into socks as well. Check (and get a friend to look at the bits round the dark side!) after a walk if you are where they are found (and nowadays that's pretty much any rough land, especially if deer are about).

Does DEET work on ticks as they are arachnids not insects?

Tracy (no 'e'!)   on 31/07/19 @ 17:52 said:

It was the nhs site that said DEET:
However, on another walking site sprays with Permethrin in were mentioned.
The antibiotics appear to be kicking in, the large rash that had developed yesterday is going down.

Glad to hear that Tracy. I had some Jungle Formula on me.

One of my walking friends collected a few Ticks when walking on the Calf of Man in shorts, a few years ago and almost died in the University Hospital of Tropical diseases London,before Lyme's Disease was diagnosed.
My choice is to walk with arms and legs covered,but they can somehow penetrate many defenses.Always now carry a Tick removing tool

Hope your rash has all cleared up now Tracy. Thanks for the warning and have now armed myself with a tick removal tool

As a runner I use Vaseline, vicks vapour rub or anything like that applied above my sock line, and above my knees, this appears to help repel and stop the spesky critters from climbing through 'grease'. Hope helps....
ps. I've 3 family members with Lyme Disease already!

Don't forget tics crawl ..on the body and from vegetation higher up ... Maybe we should all be doing body checks at the end of the day!
