If you start getting a ring-rash, go see the doc. I got a doozey about 5 years ago, and they started me on antibiotics and tested me for Lyme disease, but it came back negative. The doc was not interested until I told her I had been hiking out of state . Then she got worried and ran the test.
Outside of that, it's been just part of the game. I pick dozens of ticks off me every year. Nothing to it. Don't use any of the home remedies, just pick them off with your finger nails. Some of the home remedies, like alcohol or a burning cigarette just make the tick disgorge their stomach contents into you as they are dying. You want the tick alive as it's coming off. I was trying rubbing alcohol on a swab when I got the ring rash. Every ring rash from a tick bite needs to be seen by a doctor, otherwise the normal tick related welts can be treated the same as a skeeter's.
If you're in a Lyme-prone area, save the ticks on cellophane tape and tape them to a card with the date. It'll help if you start getting symptoms. I just keep an empty soda bottle by the bed, and toss them in there.
There are a dozen or so Tick-borne diseases that most people never encounter. Lyme is just one. Some are much worse, but very rare. My wife survived Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever as a kid-- almost unknown in her part of the world, Southern Kentucky. It was just lucky a doctor at the hospital recognized it from living out West. Otherwise she'd have been dead in a matter of hours.
In the summer, I seldom get attachment. They tend to crawl up my back and don't start trying to dig in until they get to the back of my neck at the hair line. I stay vigilant there. I also keep my beard short as soon as the weather gets warm.
