A tick on the skin doesn’t guarantee Lyme disease.

A lot of times when you find a tick and remove it, that’s all you need, because it hasn’t attached or hasn’t been on long enough to pass an infectious agent especially for Lyme disease, you need at least 24 hours, but more likely 48 hours, for them to engorge, and it’s the engorged tick that can pass Lyme disease.
