    Should I be worried??? I don't know how long it was on me, I was scratching my neck and I felt what seem like a scab and I really pulled it an it dropped on my hand and now my neck is aching...should I be doing anything about this??
    thanks for any suggestion and help.

    Did you keep the tick after you pulled it off? If so I know you can get them tested to make sure it does not have Lymes disease. You need to clean your neck off and watch for any symtoms as well. Maybe call your doctor first thing in the morning to be safe.
