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!

Sorry to but in. just wanted to say that it is definitely worth going to your doctor’s if you think there is any of the tick left in your arm. Ticks can sometimes carry lyme disease, particularly those in the lake district. It doesn’t hurt to get it checked out by your doctor. 🙂

I agree with Tim – always best to get these things checked out by a professional!
how do you get spots?
is it bad for your skin to use face make up or exfoliant or spot zapping things? even though it looks better.. is it
