Tick bites

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. Hayden Pasco is looking out for tick bites.

Use insect repellant and wear long-sleeves and long pants when in high risk areas such as woods, fields and river banks.

Most ticks do not carry disease and most tick bites do not cause serious health problems.

Diseases some ticks carry cause flu-like symptoms, such as fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and muscle aches.
