It started to throb at 4 this morning. I got up and put some ti-tree oil on a bandaid and applied it in the said position. Ti-tree is a great antiseptic so worth a try.
At 11 this morning it wasn't only throbbing but the actual site was stinging really strongly and a welt had risen up next to it.
Thinking of my upcoming travel and not wanting a butt infected with a tick head I headed to the hospital.
One nurse looked at it. Not really sure. Another was called it. The hard tag they decided, was not a tick's head but a little piece of skin. It isn't a tick. No idea what it is - apparently the site is the site two 50 cent pieces now - but it isn't a tick. The nurse applied Soov and I was back home within 40 minutes.
So good it is all okay but oh so very embarrassing :-)
