I'm pretty sure that's a "dog tick" not a deer tick.  Harmless as far as I know, don't carry lyme disease!  This may be a time when google is helpful, though - NOT for lyme disease, but for what different ticks look like.

From the picture, it doesn't look like a deer tick to me either...but I agree that it would be a good idea to confirm for safety by comparing to a tick picture or showing it to someone who would know for sure. I had Lyme disease and I never got the classic bulls-eye mark around the bite. But, I still got the disease. So, I wouldn't necessarily go by the bite mark.

Having had Lyme Disease I can tell you that not everyone gets the bullseye rash; call your doctor.  Its nothing to mess with and if you go early its only like 10 days of antibiotics

No point of spending $30 and my time for a dog tick. Doesn't look like a deer tick and only they transmit Lyme. No need to blow his out of proportion. I'll monitor the bite spot which is still done sized and itchy. Typical.

The bite is in a spot where it gets constant friction. My inner thigh.

Doesn't itch until I start walking. Hasn't increased or decreased in size.

I wonder if those "anti itch" sticks - basically ammonia - that they sell for mosquito bites would help with this itch too.
