An unnamed woman had a terrible experience when she let her daughter play in the grass. She shared her story to warn other parents about what had happened to her child.


An innocent roll around the garden ended up with the child being sick. According to PolitiFeed, the child became sick after her mother found tiny black dots on her body.

Emmalee’s mother had let her play outside one day. The little girl was rolling around on the ground and under the garden sprinkler enjoying herself.

Later on, the mother and daughter went inside for a nap.The woman woke up to realize that her daughter's entire body was covered in tiny black dots that were almost invisible to the naked eye.

After making the discovery, the mother took to social media to post a warning to other mothers in case their own children were playing outside. Initially, the woman thought the tiny black dots were just seeds.


When she noticed them moving she tried to scrape them off her daughter's arm. That’s when she realized that they were actually tiny ticks.

‘After coming inside and laying down for a nap, I just happened to notice tiny (and I mean TINY) little black dots all over her legs, abdomen, arms and armpit area.’

Emmalee's mother was convinced that daughter must have rolled over a tick's nest filled with larvae. Her arms, legs, abdomen, and armpits were covered in ticks.


It took the woman over an hour and a half to scrape off more than 150 tick larvae that she had found on her daughter's body. She then bathed her to make sure all of them were gone.

As an extra measure, the mother also washed all her daughter's bedding and toys that she had touched since returning to the house after playing outside. But the morning afterward, Emmalee was covered in angry red bumps across her body.

The little girl had a low-grade fever and a massively swollen lymph node. After visiting a doctor, she was placed on an aggressive course of antibiotics and antihistamines.
