So sad. I dont want this to be true. I took my two youngest kids to asseteague to get a pony. We named her sassy seashell. When i got sick with lyme i gave her to my sister.

As time went on and ltme spread i often thoght about those ponies. Perfect tick habitat

I have a theory that the tiniest ticks get under the skin and inside body cavities.

Like jiggers called chiggers also.

Wonder IF this is an everyday occurrence? Something we have all overlooked?

Or is this a very rare deal?

At my last visit with the ophthalmologist, I was told they had treated two different people with ticks attached to the white of their eyes. That's gross!

DKat is right. Here is one story about the tick in the eye, a little girl- 8 years old.

https://sites.google.com/site/marylandlyme/children/tick-in-eye

Makes me wonder about horses and animals that eat grass.

Just Don, I don't know. I typically don't do a tick check in my mouth and can't say I know folks who do. So I don't know if it is rare or not?

I also read nearly all scientific articles about Lyme & tick borne disease and have not noticed or do not remember any mention of it.

And just so your wagon-riding self knows, I don't make it a habit to check many animals mouths either. There is just not enough hours in the day to do it all.

I met someone at a LD support group meeting who said that the tick went down into his ear.

this is just gross. why did God make this creature.???????

ugh

and I found one on my pregnant breast. it was traumatizing, but not as bad as the 16 years that followed!

haha, the other day I felt somehting in my bra and was hysterical. I ran to get the tick tool, the magnifying glass and my husband- screaming the whole time " there's another tick on my boob"!!!!!!

I got to the bathroom and took off my shirt and a popcorn kernel piece fell out on the rug. I was so relieved. hahahaaaaa

ticks in the eye though... I think I would go insane if I had that. temporarily of course.

I have seen hundreds of ticks on a cats face all around the eyes. I guess the skin is easier to get thru there. Never saw ine in an eye but it makes sense i guess

I never saw hundreds like that on a dog but if a dog was a stray...out all the time...no tick repellent i bet it could happen

Birds and moose also get infested...thousands
