In addition to it, these bites may also cause an allergic reaction in form of anaphylaxis to a carbohydrate molecule on mammalian red meat (beef, pork, venison, etc.) known as alpha-gal. For prevention wear shirts with long sleeves, use repellants, examine clothing, kids, and pets for ticks after excursions to areas known to harbor chiggers, redbugs, and ticks.
