My husband had what we thought was s spider bite

My husband had what we thought was s spider bite or bee sting that was red and hard. So we put silver on it and it opened and bled so we put Neosporin on and it stopped itching. It has been about 10 days and it was still bothering him so he scratched the scan off and it has what we thought was a stinger so I removed it with tweezers and it was a very small tick. We are from Indiana but are in Idaho st graduation heading home Monday. Should we be concerned or do anything else.

Hi, I have been getting what I thought at first was something biting me cause it itches and swells up like a bite. In a day it it going away. But I notice it is happening every week or two I get one. I have noticed nothing in my house like a spider or anything that would bite me to cause this. What could it be?
