Seriously, it is that simple!
Those Lone Star ticks or Amblyomma americanum actually make you allergic to meat once they have bitten you!
This reaction is caused by a sugar (Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose) that is passed from the tick to the host that isn’t naturally seen in a mammal.
This is a ‘relatively’ minor symptom of a bite from a Lone Star tick. Other symptoms include the feeling of being on fire and the inability to breathe. Most can still eat chicken and fish when bitten from this tick, but some dairy products may trigger a reaction.
But, watch out..it could take up to eight hours for the onset of a meat allergy to occur.
