Steve ... are you 100% sure you got the tick's head out?  Wife (who is very knowledgeable about medical things) says that looks like the reaction to the head infecting the bite site.  It's how ticks hold on so well, they bury their heads into the skin.  

 

For everyone, if you get a tick "in" you, and you pull it out ... be sure to use a magnifying glass to inspect the head.  Be sure you pulled it out with the body.

Yep that's the first thing I made sure of. He had a little piece of flesh stuck in his mouth so the head was there lol. It's getting much much better now. Probably a good 75% lighter than it was just a couple days ago.

Took the hoe & chopped off the head of a pygmy rattler about a week ago. That's 2 so far out of a yearly average of 6 kills to feed the wildlife.

We went to the vet today with an elderly friend whose dog had been bitten what we think was a Copperhead. While we were there (3 hours) 2 more more snakebitten dogs came in, both Copperhead bites.
