Hallo Concerned
Tick bite fever is caused by a bacterial infection after being bitten by an infected tick. It usually starts with a black mark where the bite occurred, about 7-10 days after the bite, fever, severe headache, swollen glands and fine red skin rash. Treatment is for 10 days but you may feel very tired for a few weeks after the infection.
