Not all ticks carry the tick bite fever. After removing the ticks, you can apply Bactroban topical ointment to the areas where she was bitten to prevent an area of local infection. If she develops a fever and starts complaining about headaches, consult your doctor as soon as possible, to eliminate tick bite fever. The usual incubation of tick bite fever, is 10 to 14 days.
