Best case scenario is that Ricky is getting proper medical treatment but, for whatever reason, is reluctant to post about it on social media.

Ricky probably took some antibiotics and is probably getting a good laugh watching all the speculation unfold on here while he recovers.

The only thing he had wrong was you don't need to take it for ticks you found and removed the same day, since it takes 24+ hours for them to infect you.
If you read all the posts I put up you will find that bit of info in there as well. Thanks for the vindication.

How do you know if I am a doctor or not? Seems like you're the one who doesn't know if what they're posting is true. Recommending people follow cdc guidelines for a prophylactic dose of doxy is far from bad advice. Like dg_player said, if you wanna drive in your car,wait in line and then shell out a copay to get a single dose 2 pill script from an urgent care doc every time you get bit go ahead. My doctor has no problem with writing me a supply of doxy so I don't have to.

Cool story bro. You certainly are not a doctor. No doctor would go around telling people on a DG board just to take some antibiotics if you think you got a tick bite. Let me just run down a few reasons why this is idiotic advice. MOST people don't live where Lyme disease is even an issue. Only certain types of ticks carry the bacteria that can lead to Lyme disease. Over use, and incorrect use of antibiotics adds to the problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Part of the CDC guidelines includes getting a diagnosis from a medical professional not some jackoff on a DG board.
