    Keep an eye on it for the next day or so. It may be you've accidentally left the head attached and it's got inflamed. Or it could just be a reaction to the bite. Keep an eye on it, anyway. If it gets red and inflamed, or if she seems to be getting lethargic I'd head off to the vet
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    Sounds as though it's maybe just a reaction to the bite itself then. Keep an eye on it (and her) It doesn't sound as though it's anything to worry about, but as always a vet is the best option if you're concerned at all

    Sounds normal to me. Nothing more than a scab over the wound. It may even leave a permanent scar but if nothing more than that develops then I shouldn't worry.
