    Anaphylaxis after a tick bite, was it the tick or something else?

    Related Topics
    My son had a full anaphylactic reaction immediately after removing a tick, which quickly responded to epinephrine autoinjector, it was his first ever allergic reaction. Since then he has had ticks with no reaction and has developed hives and puffy eyelids after being out in the bush without a tick bite. I am puzzled - what is he allergic to and is there a test he can have to find out? Now he carries an epinephrine autoinjector everywhere but it's unnerving not knowing if it was the tick or some other environmental agent.
