    Looks like a Deer tick to me. Ixodes scapularis. Leave it on and check
    back latter?

    You mean like if I die or something we'll know for sure?

    Sadly, my poor little friend has already been called to tick heaven.

    I always think of that classic Jesse "The Body" Ventura line from the
    movie, Predator.

    They are a little easier to differentiate when they are engorged.

    It's a female after they're that big the males have all died off. They're
    only good for one shot.

    But she was in tick heaven on your leg? :)

    The seed ticks are the ones I really hate. :-(

    When most people see a tick on them they run to get the matches and
    the tweezers.
    I run to get the 65mm MP-E Macro.

    A few drops of lighter fluid will make them withdraw and loosen up.
    After a minute or so, they can be pulled off easily with tweezers.

    I tried that, but the pain was to immense.
    Maybe I shoulda let the fluid soak in before I lit it, huh?

    Can still just about feel the hole where I suspect a tick had a go at me and
    then went septic. I did not notice any tick but I had an insect bite that
    got worse and worse rather than better. Thank you for antibiotics.

    Keep an eye out for a Bulls eye Rash to develop around the bite. If it
    does get that looked at.
