Can Ticks Burrow under the Skin?

Answer

A tick is a parasitic arachnid. They will attach themselves to humans or animals, to feed on blood of the host. They also carry varies diseases, like Lyme disease. Ticks do not burrow completely under the skin, but they do bury their heads in the skin. When removing a tick, you have to be very careful to remove all of it, to avoid part of the head or mouth being left behind, which could cause an infection.
