    How to use "Soft tick" in context?

    A soft tick is a parasitic infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue caused by the blood-feeding larva of the human soft tick (Ichneumonidae), Amblyomma americanum. Soft ticks can be found in North America and Europe, but are also present in Asia. Symptoms of a soft tick bite are intense pain and swelling, which may persist for up to a week. Soft ticks can also cause fever, malaise, cellulitis, and even infection in the bloodstream. Treatment is with antibiotics, and prompt symptomatic treatment is essential to prevent serious health complications.
