Our expert says:
You could have been bitten, rather ask your doctor to check with a blood test for tickbite fever. Also examine your body for any bite marks with a black spot in the middle.
Ask your husband to dip the dog with Pulvex to kill the ticks (it can be absorbed through the skin so please do not do it yourself) and dust your carpets with flea and tick powder, let it stand for a while and vaccuum.
