I had 4 tick bites this past weekend. A couple pulled were nymphs, the tiny pin head ones, off before realizing what they were . The adult deer tick ( with the white dot on the back) on my back didn’t swell much. The tiny ones seem to give me large welts of infection. The last I pulled off I recalled the plaintain spit poultice, went and chewed some up and slapped it on( after removing and burning baby tick). That bite has the least itching and swelling. So the next night I went to the yard and chewed up some plaintain & put it on the 2 infected bites. Then I covered them with bandages to keep it on for awhile. The swelling has gone down immensely. Always try to remember this spit poultice for bites!
