Tick Bite Fever

Does all tick bites leave an eschar? If I see black head eschar, can I assume that I will get the fever.

Dear Hilda
No not all bites leave a mark and not all black marks will mean that you will get tickbite fever. But it is highly suspicious when you have a mark and I would suggest that you take the blood test just to make sure that there is no infection.
