My 7 year old daughter was bitten by a tick 4 weeks ago. The doctor removed it. For at least two weeks she now has two lumps which seemed to form suddenly and very close to each other. I brought her to the NP today and she said they must just be dermoid cysts and to do nothing but watch them. I'm concerned this could be related to the tick or unrelated but should still be followed up on instead of nothing. Anyone have anything similiar happen to them?
