    Ain't it just....... it does occur in our area but doesn't seem to be as common here as it is on the coast.

    I've seen them advertised before but don't know how effective they are or if they prevent the tick from vomiting into the bloodstream during removal or not but probably well worth a try.

    "RX is: You'll get some Doxicyline (sp) and you will be right as rain in 10 days."

    Had tick bite fever when I got back from SA last year, talked my doc, he prescribed the tx above, no big deal.
