    You mean Rocky Mountain Spotted fever?

    Take him to a doctor. Better safe then sorry. Especially with your kids.. come on now.

    Symptoms include fever and rashes, hives.

    Clean the wound (make sure the head is out first) then wash with soap and water and put antibacterial cream on the wound.

    When someone i knew had gotten bitten, when she took it off, she accidentaly left the head behind, thats the only way, i think, u can get sick. So, it s a 80% chance he wont.

    It is not too likely if you took the ticks out right away, but there is always a possibility
