What do you mean by inside your body? Do you mean in your stomach (like if you ingested it) or do you mean under your skin?
Under your skin, yes. In your stomach, no. Stomach acid would kill it. However, I suppose if you swallowed a tick and it attached itself to your throat or something that maybe it could live there. I dunno though.
I don't know for sure, but I really don't see why not. I mean, they live off of your blood, so as long as they were attached to you and weren't in your stomach acid or anything I guess so. And as long as they could breath. (i think they need to breath, right?) but the chances are very slim of this happening. At least I would think so. Don't quote me on any of this, because I really don't know for sure!
I honestly believe the tic was inside living foer 3 years
I got bitten by a tic 3 years ago,today the same place it went in came out .....my left breast,what.it was a boil looking bump right in the middle of the bulls eye.i really believed if they had cut it open they would have pulledm out the tic.but they wouldnt touch it in maine.they gave me 5 days of tetrycline.5 months later i can not tell you how bad off i was that was july 6 2007,today 3 years,the other night my same breast was burning.what would you know it came climbing back out same spot.half way outside of it.i pulled it out under panic with tweezers.
