Mammalian meat allergy following tick bites
Tick bites can cause mild to life-threatening allergic reactions to mammalian meats such as beef, pork, lamb, kangaroo, goat and venison.
The tick bites occur before any allergic reactions to mammalian meats. The allergic reactions to meat are typically delayed for 2-10 hours after eating the meat.
