      Hi @gg123456789
      You’ll be fine, but if you think there’s any part of it still in your skin you should go to your doctor to get it out.

      It can’t do you too much harm though, so don’t worry!

      How did you get a tick? When I was at school we went on a school trip to France and someone got a tick in the woods, and a teacher had to get it out with a pin! I hope you’re OK!
